It has taken me forever it seems, but I have finally set up my yard sale. For the longest time it has been too hot. Now it's too wet. Looks like I may have to wait another whole week.
I cleaned out my jewelry box of all my vintage stuff. I have not had much luck with that yet. Still only had one and maybe 1/2 days.
I have vintage purses and dresses. Hats and plates.
I sorted out most of my salt and pepper collections.
Paintings I had no room for,
Quilted wall hangings
There are sheet sets, quilt sets, pillow cases and some vintage ones that are hand embroidered.
The things that sold the quickest were Reina's toys. So I think I will be sorting out some of Tristen's stuff, old wood puzzles and stuff he will never play with. I washed all the stuffies and those are nice to give away when little kids show up.
A whole table of craft items, some of that sold but there is plenty more.
Books, there are always books
Laura and Reina were my helpers. I made 250 dollars in the one day. I need to do a lot better, I have loads to go through in the basement yet so will need another couple of weekends yet. I also have a bike for sale. Time to rethink and dig in for more stuff. Then a nice dry cool weekend that's what I need now.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
