I found the cardboard frame/mat and I thought they looked nice together.
Bright and happy red geraniums for the first day of spring:
She may have bought every book about organizing, etc. that she could find. She was ALWAYS trying to do it.
Honestly, it was kind of a fluke that I even came across the book - "How To Conquer Clutter", written by Stephanie Culp, and published in 1989.
I thought "Hmm.. maybe I should take that home and have a look.."
So I did, and when I opened it up about a week later I actually found the geranium card tucked inside.
I had sent it to Mother in 1990. Tina and I were heading down to see her and I was sending her directions to an antique mall where we were going to meet.
I am now at a point in my life when - quite like our Mother - I need some very serious help.
I have accumulated SO much stuff that I now need all the help I can get, whether it comes in the form of a book or any other form.
Yes, please - and then we will move on to summer cleaning, fall cleaning, winter cleaning - and on and on and on until I make some freaking progress, for crying out loud!
