If you do decide to have a garage or yard sale then you should read these three articles for preparing for a sale. I found them helpful -- of course, now, I just have to part with a few things :)
So this morning I walked around the house and decided whether some things should stay or go...
|I love these vintage green jars I picked up at Sweet Salvage in Phoenix. The coffee pot -- a must!|
|I love going to the recycle shop and finding something really cool -- like an entire stack of oil paintings, the lilac painting is one of my favorites. The elephants, my husband made when he was twelve years old. How adorable is that :).|
|I thought about getting rid of this old box -- but it is so handy to store all my oils and vinegars. Hmmmm....|
|This is the top of an old table in my sunroom. Very cool collage of vintage canvas paintings.|
|What do you think? Keep? I mean, they feel like they are part of the family. These sea shell owls watch over the living room.|
|An old box with the word FARM -- I can't get rid of this!|
|Vintage jewelry, handmade artisan jewelry from friends, gifts from my husband -- is it worth keeping --I think so!|
|Sometimes I get rid of things and then later go -- darn -- I should have kept that. I'm thinking these are two of those items.|
|A vase from a Venice, Italy flea market, rocks my nieces found on the beach and a large pottery vase from a friend while she was styling my house for Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. All great memories. I think they'll stay.|
|How cute are these daisy glasses? Bought them at two different locations--antique shop and second hand shop.|
Okay, maybe next year... :) But I'm happy to stop by yours and pick up a few cool things.
