Subject: RE: BS: February Declutter - keep the faith!
I was out running errands most of the day, so I wasn't without the 'cat, really. I took all my paperwork to the nice lady that does my taxes. She saves me more that her fee, so better she does it than me. And besides, I really begrudge the time I spend when I do them myself.

After I left her office, I took my cuckoo clock to the repair shop. It's about a half-hour away, but they're really the best around here for that sort of thing. But after lunch, I found myself RE-cluttering, you might say. I stopped at a big antiques "mall" and found a teacup/saucer with heather flowers that I just had to have, and 3 water goblets that were so cheap (half their usual price) that I had to buy them. Now I don't have to worry about breaking them.

Sort of out-of-my-way going home, I stopped at another shop with multiple dealers, and found 3 pieces of Wade Irish Porcelain (search this phrase on ebay, and there are always some for auction). I had told myself "no more", but these were kind of special-- a pitcher, a large tankard with a harp-shaped handle, and a little urn-shaped vase (about the size of an eggcup) for small flowers. But-- an here's the good part-- I did NOT go to the big antiques SHOW nearby.

Will try to restrain myself in the future,
