Or so he says….
I hope everyone had a blessed Mother’s Day! We had a wonderful day in the Hamilton House. See a few details of our day by following along on Instagram! Details below.
Now, about this accusation of giving my husband a cold…
In the cleaning out process for my garage sale I decided I HAD to get rid of these old magazines. It’s amazing how attached you get to these things. But the clutter had to go!
Project “Get Rid of Magazines” took over 2 weeks. Remember Country Home? Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion? Cottage Living? These were like old friends!
I flipped through magazines while eating breakfast, eating lunch, riding in the car, cooking dinner, any spare moment during the day and before bed each night reducing this stack to a small collection of tear sheets.
I have to admit it was an annoying process. I was flipping through these noisy magazines at rapid fire speed yet being careful I wasn’t throwing away any pages of pertinent inspiration. My husband, Scott, claimed he woke up each morning with a sore throat due to the breeze I was creating. Wimp.
It was all worth it. I sold loads of magazines at the impressive price of 10 for $1.00. One customer even came back the second day of the sale to buy more. One precious lady left the garage sale saying, “This is such a great day! I’m leaving with treasures and carrying magazines in a bucket! What could be better?” So much better than throwing them away.
ADDITIONAL RANDOM STORIES, DETAILS and/or PHOTOS
I’ve met some of the sweetest people since blogging. Debra contacted me several months ago for an e-consultation regarding a project she was working on.
A few weeks later I received a gift in the mail. These amazing vintage threads.
Thank you, Debra! You are so sweet!
If you’d like more information on these vintage threads you can contact Debra – Seller “diddibag” on Ebay for details.
Aren’t they a nuisance? You may notice when you leave a comment that I recently had to switch to “Your comment will be visible after approval”. I apologize for this but I’m being attacked these days with a ridiculous amount of spam. Ridiculous, I tell you! So, until I can get this under control I’ll be approving your comments as quickly as I can.
Bushel Basket Light Fixture
I’ve been saving this photo of an oh-so-cool light fixture for months now and hadn’t worked it into a post yet.
Since this post appears to be one of the most random posts I’ve written to date…I thought it fit quite well.
How fun is this? I love the look. The color. The shape. All of it! This adorable light fixture hangs in Cassity’s mudroom. Definitely worth sharing.
