All I need is the resolve to use the "best" goodies. Some things never seem to match a project, i.e. two dozen pieces, (about 2 meters ea.) factory ruffled or narrow pleated ribbons (silk). I know I will never find more and I can't bring myself to use it. So if you have a can of Super-Resolve for reluctant pack rats, send it along. Cordially, Nehmah

how about a piece that showcases all of them? or just use some on the cuffs of a sweater. That way it will not all get used up and you will have both the pleasure of knowing you have some in your stash as well as the pleasure of using and seeing them.

I seem to have inherited treasures from other packrats.believe me..the precious in use is much better than just having it in stash.


My mother ( and my DH) are big believers in "saving for good". I'm the third girl in my family. There were dresses and blouses that were saved for good so that they were passed down unworn by all three of us. Both my sisters and I wear the new stuff right away. We don't want the good stuff to pass through out hands unworn, unused.

I have inherited old linens from al sorts of folks. I use it all of the time.Used it is appreciated and loved.
