For years I’ve been decluttering, especially my closet: things I don’t wear anymore, can’t fit into, have had for too long, impulsive buys, stuff that fit awkward, damaged items, and others that I’ll never wear.
But I have this one cardigan that has been in my closet for 20 years. It used to be the perfect cover all for sleeveless tops and summer dresses. It’s a cropped button down v-neck with a shirred bottom. I even wore it on my first date with Chris 17 years ago and on our honeymoon.
I was way too skinny in my mid 20s, and after getting married I plumped up and with kids, dieting is kinda hard. I’m more conscious of it these days and trying to make better eating choices and less binging. That’s another topic for another post; not ready to go there yet.
And guess who its new is. You guessed it.
My little lady.
I thought she loved the history of my cardigan but she told me adamantly that she doesn’t; instead, she only loves its texture and color. Ok, fine!
Anyhow, I’m happy that it found its new owner and we live in the same house.
And Elliot wears my school hoodie that I can no longer squeeze into; it’s also green. This hoodie had a longer life than the cardigan, which I wore until 2 years ago.
Thank you readers for stopping by! Appreciate your readership and support. Have a wonderful weekend and hope your schedule includes some summer fun.
Peace and Blessings, Esther

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
It’s so good that their new owners love them and that they’re never far away.
Yay – repurposing them for the kids and after the kids, any big plushies!
Our space is getting overcrowded with our plushies collection. It’s a problem that shows no sign of slowing down. lol. Why must they be so cute?!

I “get” it Esther because my bears enroached all over the house – three rooms and I had to stop, though I did look at that Paddington Bear which is supposed to be a big seller at Christmas after the video of Paddington and Queen Elizabeth drinking tea at the Palace for her 70th Jubilee Anniversary.
