It's Hard Saying Goodbye...


Out of all of the people I know I'm going to miss terribly when I leave Santa Cruz, the thing I'm feeling most emotional about right now is the fact that I can't take my couch and chaise with me. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that! But I feel really sad that we can't make them work in our new house. I'm sad partly because I have a high need for efficiency and economy and I know these pieces could serve us well for a good ten years more! Urrgh! And, will someone love them and enjoy them and get use out of them...who knows? So, I've listed them on Craigslist, and now I wait. I don't blame anyone for wanting new furniture (it's kind of a personal item) but what do I do with them if no one buys them? Goodwill seems a bit harsh.

(Notice how much I've packed? No more pictures on the walls or "accessories." Just the basics.)

I'll be right there. Will they fit in my truck? What a deal. I wish I was closer. They're terrific. Good luck!

Once upon a time when I was moving away from America to join my new husband in Italy, I donated my furniture to a store called Cherished Again that resold used furniture, I wonder if there is a place like that near you. I am sure that someone who doesn't have very much would really appreciate such wonderful furniture if you do decide to donate it to the Good will, or a church, or a thrift store. You may just ease someone's burden and enhance their day to day life.
