hi my name is tammy and i am new to the group, so far i don't believe i have posted much if at al but have read a lot of the ladies posts and learned a lot from them, so thank you so much.
i do however have a question and i don't think i have seen this ever asked or addressed so i will ask it as i do have this issue and don't know how to resolve it.
question: what do you ladies do with sentimental objects for example the ones that are passed down from family members? maybe they are antique etc. and have been in the family for years..... ???????
i ask this because i do have items like this and when the time comes (god forbid) i will be a ton more. i am unsure how to handle them in reference to display, what to keep, what to sell etc. i just don't know how to choose i feel obligated to keep it all because that is what every other person has done and passed it on to the next generation. BUT i just don't want all this "stuff" on display in my home all the time even though it is very pretty and most very very expensive. for example my mother has dishes that are valued at 300.00 per place setting and she has a 16 person setting not to mention the "goodies" like creamers, candle sticks you name it that go with it.
i guess i could use some really good advice on this issue. UGH!
