Hi my name is Kammy.
I'm a small-scale hoarder.
I accumulate junk.
I have a very difficult time throwing anything out.
I just might be able to do something with it some day.
Even the stems I cut off of my hostas when all the pretty little purple flowers have shriveled and died.
So this year, I kept them. And I'm glad I did!
I cut the stems as low as I could,
laid them all in a pile and sawed the ends off in one big bunch so the bottom and top were both flat. I used a big, sharp, scary knife. The same one you'll meet if you come to my door unexpected.
A saw might actually work better - they were tough buggers.
And since I can't throw anything out, the square of burlap came from the inside of an old chair I took apart.
I have to say I made a big step for a mini hoarder like myself today.
I threw away ONE HUNDRED AND SEVEN MAGAZINES TODAY!
As in, ripped them up and burned them in a fire before I could change my mind.
kind of freeing.......
