A Little Less Bookish...

I love books. I love magazines. I love patterns. I love crafts. I also like any combination of the above. Because of that, I have too many books, magazines and patterns.
I have books in shelves, on table tops, in baskets, in tote bags. They're everywhere. Did I say, "I have too much many?"
It's time to put this assortment to good use. Now that I've sorted all of these out of my still immense collection, I'll be taking them over to the Suncoast Humane Society. They have a resale shop that raises proceeds to support their shelter facility. It's a worthy cause and I feel like I'm doing some really good when I donate items there.
The Suncoast Humane Society shelter is located in Englewood, Florida, but they have resale shops in Venice and Port Charlotte. I'll be taking these to Port Charlotte. It's the closest to home.
Some lucky crafters will get great deals; we'll get deductions on our tax return; and best of all, shelter pets will reap the benefits in food, medicine and other comforts during their stay. Everybody wins.

Tag can't wait to visit with you tomorrow. He wants to tell you about this very, very special week!

Oh I know where you are coming from...My home was bursting at the seems with books .About two years ago I had a bit of a download.Some of my books I had since childhood ,had to put sentiment aside and get rid of a few.It was very hard but had to be done.I let go of about 500, including novels and working books.I use a kindle these days for novels but still buy the other sort lol.You are very brave Donna for I know how hard it is .You will feel so much lighter afterwards.xx

This is a wonderful way to de-clutter and also generously give to help others...pets too! I have been known to donate and then by chance purchase my items at the thrift stores...OOPS. I am in "Corgible". Missed all of last week due to jury duty. No time to backtrack now. Spring Smiles...
