What will she {clean} next?


Love my mom to death! As a matter of fact, I am super ExCiTed b/c my parents are coming to my house this 4th of July. First time Ever that they are not going to their cottage but coming down to see us! However, I am a bit nervous to see what my dear ole mother will bring...anytime she cleans something in her house somehow I get lots of things on her next visit.

For example, she must of cleaned her towel closet b/c she came bearing gifts of tons and tons of towels like tea towels, cleaning towels, hand towels. Or the time she cleaned out her candle cabinet...I was overflowing with every kind of candle you can imagine. Or when she cleaned out her sheet closet...you bet ya...I had sheets coming out of my ears.

Let's see...can you guess what she cleaned out before she came on her previous visit to me???


yep....her cottage storage room- we are overflowing with blow-ups(many more in the garage)!

I am sitting here wondering what she cleaned last week...let's hope it's her chintz china set (heee hee)!

My Mom hangs on to EVERYTHING...I go over and stress her out by suggesting we should clean out and call Good Will....
Have fun...wish you guys were heading up here though-4th of July is MAGICAL up here!!!

hilarious! I've told my mom she'd better start getting rid of stuff (and not to me- thank goodness we're an ocean apart so she can't!) because she does not want her "collections" to be her legacy!

How funny. Just wait...one day she might clean out her jewelry chest. :)

Maybe you could make suggestions . . sometimes moms get the hint.

That's great! Your mom sounds wonderful--like mine. I can always count on her to give me new dishrags.

Every time I come home from my apartment, I always get lavished with containers upon containers of food that nobody wants to eat during the week. My mom fusses at me because I'm in a bad habit of not returning those containers, either. Oops...

I love all the little collections that my mom finds and sends to me. The items she sends are just sweet little finds and my heart sings for joy every time I get a little package.

Love it!

I wonder if my girls think of me like this. When I clean out something, I always give it to them. :)

Have a wonderful visit!

This is too funny. My mom's basement, yeah, it's full. If National Geographics ever become super valuable, we'll be millionares. :)

Could you send your mom over to our house? I need some new towels myself!

Aren't you glad you have such a generous parent!

What fun...

Hope you have a great next visit. Maybe you ought to strategically plan out your mom's next cleaning job!
