As look around my house
I see very little
that was bought by me.
I am a blessed
and fortunate child
to be surrounded
by all these lovely things
that I could never afford.
At times I have felt burdened
by all the responsibility
of what goes where,
and taking special care
of all these family remnants.
Iím proud of what I have
donít get me wrong.
But I often wonder what
my choices would be,
if all these things hadnít been
given to me.
What would my house look like
if I started from scratch,
how different the colors
might be.
Not that Iím not content
with what I have right now.
Everything blends in,
I make it work
comfy cozy.
Itís just my Ďwhat ifí curiosity.

Heirlooms make airy rooms. I'd wager your home is full of stories, Miss Lori, from 'this to that'!

Thanks Pinkynotquiteanantiquey,
Yes, they hold memories, I'm especially fond of the pieces my mom refinished herself. ~L
