The Key

I have a sad heart... my vinyl album collection of 60 items has just left the house... my growing years David Cassidy, the first NOW, Ginger Baker Gurvitz Army, Rainbow, Motown, Stevie Wonder, Pop Pop and more Pop!  A very random motley crew of albums, some were missing already... The theme tune to my life story, heart is pounding and eyes wet...

Books next, well started the other day of course, but having trouble letting go of some, and keep putting them on the wrong piles and have to start again, opening wounds and changing my mind, constantly!  Going to check out the few I have to put to one side, see if there is any point to on-line selling of said books, if not down the shop they'll go... I have taken out 'horror, shock, OMG'.... pages from some of the books, I have to keep named pages, why? ---- ---- ------ ----- --- fill in the blanks please, because I don't truly know myself why anymore...

And! Something new! A drawing challenge ready for today? Veronica's challenge! The Key... this whole week has been a key.... Key to locking old doors, Keys to opening new ones, Keys to clearing out and organizing what seems to be tangible actual items, but means I am clearing out and organizing thoughts and feelings too... huh!?! hahahahahaha!!! Who the hell do I think I'm kidding! Not me forsure...

So The Key... below a key! LOL.... picture adjusted slightly...


And within showing its true colors... Mmmmmm, meant to get a bottle of wine today and forgot!!! No work mañana!  Although maybe not a great idea to add wine to the chocolate!! DeChoxed for March, (did I mention this before!!??)  beginning on the first day of Lent, ending yesterday, six weeks in total.... and after the huge amount of chocolate I have eaten since getting back from work at four yesterday afternoon, its wonder I don't have stomachache! [can't write that, or say it out loud without thinking of that episode of  'Everybody Loves Raymond' where he says stom-ach-ache by mistake!


See, hidden cork screw! Hic!


And above a beautiful combination, the watch is my oldest sons, my grandfathers, but the fob chain is mine for now, not sure weather to keep or pass on... sell in other words, its from India, the time of the British Raj... ..sterling silver and so beautiful, it looks nice as a bracelet, which is where it could continue its days upon my wrist!

Aw, I want to run to the store and buy you that bottle of wine! I think you just might need it. Isn't it funny? When I was in my 30s I decided to get rid of my Bowie records, and now I'm anxious to collect them again. Ah, true love. Anyway, I love the key-bottle opener. That is truly the key to starting a long bank holiday weekend! And the silver chain, KEEP IT!!! It's gorgeous. I have my grandfather's gold watch chain which I used to wear as a choker a round my neck. Now it's in the safe, but I might resurrect it as a bracelet. Wonderful idea! Oh, when I get to England, I'm going to find you and give you a big hug! Brave girl. x

Beautiful keys... i like your story about going through your things and trying to get rid of them. Obviously the ones you can't let go of are 'keys' to something...

What a surprise to see the key become an opener, Marian! Cleaning and organizing is freeing but may I suggest you KEEP the watch! Yes.... you will regret losing it once it's gone. Happy cleaning to you.
