As a school teacher, might I suggest that you donate the National Geographics to a school? I use old ones for students to cut apart for pictures and maps for reports and art projects, and they were fun to have around! Of course, those old textbooks make me swoon. :)

Williamsburg is wonderful......we lived there(Kingsmill) for 4 years before moving to Key West. I have lots of friends there still and head that way often. Kingsmill has a wonderful yard sale twice a year..it's a community one. Yard sales are great in Williamsburg in all areas! I go down at least once a month and stay with girlfriends just to head over to Surry on the Ferry for pizza or barbecue at Pierce's. We are retiring on the Northern Neck because my husband thinks Williamsburg has gotten too "busy" but I'd retire to Williamsburg in a New York second if I could convience him to!

See, you are so organized that you have already put all these goodies to use in your home (mind you, you also have a lot more home to work with than I do)! I still have a few boxes of goodies to go through. I gave dad that paint tin a while back. I'm not so sure it was his style, but I think it's neat. I picked up some old ladies' magazines from the 60s and 70s from Mom. They have pretty good knitting patterns in them, besides all of the usual good things.

You got some great treasures from your parents. It will be nice to have them closer to you and Williamsburg will be a fun place to visit.

Great stuff. It's good that you are paring down...my parents took a lot of stuff they should have sorted through when my grandfather passed (the worst one that comes to mind is a bath mat...I was like "uh, I think you can throw that out.")

Wonderful items from your parents!
I am from Alexandria, VA and now live in the Memphis area....I miss VA! Williamsburg is one of my favorite places to visit...Christmas holidays are beautiful!
Transition is always a hard time but downsizing is a wonderful feeling!
Your blog is great!

Oh, the transfer of stuff... that's the reason we have a two car garage that doesn't have room for even one car! But I'm such a sentimental packrat I don't mind. :)

I love those old books! Would love to page through them all!

The old tins are a great treasure. Also, I am the lucky one in our family that gets the transfer items....good name for them. Neither of my children want these things. How sad.
