My mom gave me my grandmother's china (her mom). I always liked it but I really have no room for it. I have it in a box in the media room (too heavy for me to get in the attic). I honestly don't know what to do with it since some pieces had been broken and now the set is not complete. I think the most I could serve with full place settings would be 5 people.
It kills me because I know I am supposed to keep them for sentimental reasons, but I don't really feel sentimental about many things. People, sure. Things, not so much.
What do you do when you have a situation like this and are you a sentimental person?

hahaah I was just put in this situation by my mom. she gave me some things that one of my sisters gave her. it is from one of my sisters that she doesn't talk to anymore or very often. I took it to be nice, but it's basically been put away. She specifically told me that she wanted it back and I couldn't give it away. so I am like, "why are you giving it to me?" in my head that is...lol the only things that I ever wanted I got. I have an old mantle clock that was my great x3 grandmother's. And I also have the nut cracker my dad used when he would shell pecans. lol he would sit at the table for a long time shelling them things. I basically have all that I wanted. I am sentimental to a point, but if it's not something that I have an attachment to, I don't want it. I have too much stuff I need to get rid of to take on someone else's things. haha
