I Burned the Paper Dolls Tonight


Cleaned out the basement tonight, with the kids' help. It needed doing. I volunteered to burn the paper-waste in our burning barrel.

As I loaded the barrel and lit it, I noticed a tattered shoebox of homemade paper dolls. I remembered the hours of fun our middle two daughters enjoyed with these dolls. The clothes were made from wallpaper sample books, obtained free from a local store. Who says fun has to cost something?

I almost kept them, rescued from the burning, just for the memories. But I didn't.

  1. I know that last second "should I?" feeling! I love to purge and it's so freeing but comes rough to my pack rat soul!
