When we moved (and did major downsizing) I had to give up (and throw away) a LOT of stuff. Rusty, cruddy, gnarled stuff I'd collected for years. I did manage to set aside 3 small boxes worth of selected pieces.
Never look back on what you left behind,
only look forward to what you can start collecting all over again.
For a long time I made a lot of ceramic boxes, mostly with open tops and bottoms. The goal (somehow there is always a goal there but maybe that's just an easy way to say "I don't have a real plan") was to stack them up in a window on their sides so they would look like ruins of a city but you would still be able to look through them.
This give-away is still there after 30 days.
