  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your weekly columns in the paper. It is always informative and fun reading your take on living in a home. I’d like to request an story on making a house work with dogs. I am always looking for ways to cope with the hair (upholstery ideas please) – bought a Roomba and love it- nose prints (oh please) and general tips. I am not a neophyte at this. I’ve been showing dogs, training dogs, working in commercials with dogs, grooming dogs….basically steeped in them for over 40 years. There must be new products, ideas, and help that I have overlooked. THANKS

  2. Hey Marnie: Just read your end-of-year column. What stays w/me is Dec: “Kondoing:”
    I need a lot of help, so I intend to get the book. As an ex: three yrs ago,I put about 10 suits (skirts and jackets), in my basement closet. I will NEVER wear them again, but I don’t want to give to Goodwill, more like Dress for Success. My point is about ‘giving joy.’ “Things” don’t give me joy. People and music do. So, getting rid of ‘things’ has nothing to do with: Does it “give me joy?” Happy New Year and Congrats on your marriage…

  3. Hi Marnie: Just read you column in the paper today for the first time. What an appropriate article for me to read. I have recently relocated to Florida after living in Indiana all my life and in doing so had to sell the home I loved and that I raised our family in. I do wish I had taken something small with me but I did say a prayer before I left and said a prayer when we moved into our new home. I still miss the old home but a new adventure awaits.

  4. I enjoyed the article about “parting” with a home. When we left our first home it was our 5 year old son that needed time to adjust. We made many trips by the house to check if it was “Happy!”. On the first trip I was very curious what he would find to assure him the house was happy. He saw an open window and that was enough for him to know the house was happy. On other trips by the house he saw toys, open garage, man mowing the lawn,flowers etc. No matter how many times we went by (the home was near his babysitter) he found something to assure him the house was happy.

  5. I was so touched by your article “How to Say Goodbye to a House.” Several times when I’m outside I feel the urge to put my arms around the brick and give it a big hug. Almost 50 years ago I brought my new-born son home to the same room I’m sleeping in now. It’s not a mansion, but is perfect. Will be a sad day when I have to leave it but I cut out your article to keep for that time..
    Thank you!

  6. Your column June 17 in the Oklahoman much enjoyed.At age 97 the idea of a “journal” seemed odd. So I have been writing love notes to my dear departed wife of 74 years every day since March 12.Currently 22000 words later I concur completely with your final sentence. “writing it all down helps.”

  7. Your book, Downsizing The Family Home, has given me great insight. I am 52. I am totally looking at my own house and belongings in a totally different light. I am now downsizing for myself. This being said, my 27 year old daughter wants to buy her first house. I will tell her to write the buyers a letter. On the otherhand, my parents need to downsize and sell their 2 story house of 53 years, for health reasons. I now have a better way to approach how to help them let go of the extra stuff my siblings and I don’t want. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to help me through this transition. Barbara

  8. Looked for your column in The Denver Post this morning and it wasn’t there. I start my Saturday mornings with your column every week. What happened?

  9. Hi Carla, The Post unceremoniously cancelled my column after 14 years. Below is an email I sent readers (whose addresses I had). The editors are hearing from them. I invite you to write the paper, as well, and suggest they reconsider. In addition to these names perhaps a letter to the editor, too. I’m getting flooded by letters. So I hope they are, too, and that they will reconsider.

    Dear Reader,
    You may notice something missing from your paper Saturday. Last Friday evening, I received an email from the features editor of the Denver Post saying that due to budgetary issues, the last column of mine they would carry would appear June 17. (Her email is below.) I’m sorry I did not get a chance to write a proper good-bye as this was an abrupt ending to a 14-year relationship.

    If you are getting this email, you are among the many Denver Post readers who have reached out to me in recent years to express appreciation for my weekly home column. While I wish I had the email addresses of all those who might miss my Saturday morning missives, at least I can thank you for following along in my journey of life and living, and for your loyalty and letters. However much you might have learned from my columns, I have learned many, many times more from you.

    Obviously, newspapers are facing difficult time and are struggling to survive. I have been able to weather much of the industry’s downsizing as I provide syndicated content to a couple dozen papers, who each pay a small subscription fee to carry my content. Most papers find that the arrangement is affordable, and that the content helps build loyal readers like you. But ultimately, the Denver Post editors changed their minds.

    If – after this Saturday — you would like to write the editors and share your thoughts on their decision, I encourage you to do so. I have listed a few email addresses below that you might want to use if you are so inclined.

    If you have friends who follow my column and who might want to continue seeing my column in the paper, please forward this invitation to them as well. Editors do listen to readers.

    Due to budgetary issues, the Marni Jameson column that we publish on Saturday, June 17, will be the final piece purchased by The Denver Post.

    We’ve greatly valued your contributions, as have our readers.

    Thank you for allowing us to publish your work over the years, and best of luck to you in the future.

    If we fail to be persuasive, and you would like to continue to read my weekly column, you can find my stories online through other outlets. Here are a few to try: Salt Lake Tribune, San Jose Mercury News, New Orleans Times-Picayune, and the Orlando Sentinel.

    Whatever the outcome, please know how grateful I am to have been a small part of your lives.
    Live well,
    Marni Jameson

  10. Hi Marni
    I am in Denver and after a couple of weeks out of town was looking forward to reading your column on Saturday. Your column is part of my Saturday morning routine, I read your column before I read the funnies. I’ve just learned the Post had decided to discontinue carrying your column. I have written to tell them this is a terrible idea. There is much to worry about and be sad about in the world. You Saturday column has been my preferred way to begin focusing on Saturday morning since we moved to Denver. I have been moved my your columns more than once, moved enough to consider writing you. Finally I am to let you know how much I enjoy your column and that I have written to the Denver Post to complain. I hope it works. Otherwise I will have to spend time on Saturday in front on my computer finding your column in some other forum. LOVE your column and the thought of being on the computer on a Saturday morning is still just awful.

  11. Hi Erin, Welcome to the chorus of readers who feel like you. I am just as sad. Thank you for writing the paper on our behalf. I have made one more plea to the editor to reconsider.Please keep checking the website, as I have a plan b, though I’m sorry, it will mean having to face your computer on Saturday. Ugg. Hang with me. Marni

  12. HI Ms. J. Just read your column (Jul 9- Gently Used Furniture…) and wanted to know if the mirrored chest was intentionally meant to show the wooden bottom drawer? I couldn’t tell from the picture in the paper nor by looking on line at the photo. It appears to have the two bottom drawers missing the glass or at least most of the glass? Just curious- I’ve never seen anything like it before. Thanks for your time and attention to this minor question.

  13. Hi Judi,
    What you’re seeing is a reflection in the mirrored drawers reflecting the tan sisal area rug below, and also the dark brown wood floor. It’s so tricky to photograph mirrored items, but the entire chest is mirrored, only the little feet on the bottom are wood. marni
