We built our home in the 70's and there are many things around here that fit into that category. Take for instance the panelling in the basement. It was the thing to have in one's basement at the time. Now it just looks quite dated to me. I would love to paint it. My dear husband who indulges me in anything I want, is totally against painting this panelling. Since I love him dearly, I don't push this issue too much. Heck, I wouldn't mind painting the brick fireplaces. He also has an aversion to painting brick.
I have collected many of these Cat's Meow houses during our travels all over the USA. My sister and I would buy lighthouse replicas when we visited lighthouses together. I do cherish those times we spent together looking for the next great lighthouse. I display them over the doorways in various rooms of our home. Some are on the mantel in the family room.

I really don't know what to do with these items now. Sure I could try to sell them. Being sentimental can really haunt you. Times spent with loved ones, that are no longer here, make it particularly hard to get rid of certain items.
