It comes and it goes...

Well the teapots sold - good money too!!!

I am supposed to be decluttering and...


finishing so many unfinished projects......


not visiting op shops (thrift shops) and buying more stuff like pretty vintage petticoats...


and craft shops buying more trims.......

and then feeling guilty when I get home so stuffing them out of sight......

better get going and carry on with that decluttering!!!

Take Care

I can see why they sold, those are full of pretty pastel cuteness!

This sounds so familiar Rachel! In Spring I visited a car boot sale to see whether it was a place for me to sell. Since then I was there every month, buying! But you made a start selling those lovely teapots for starters, just look it at the bright side! Have a great week!

I had a yard sale this weekend to declutter and as soon as it was done I went off to an estate sale and bought more junk. However, I did not find anything half as pretty as those slips and that beautiful lace!

Hey sounds like you're describing me...lol. I do that every time I get rid of a few things, it's like I feel I deserve a shopping trip as a reward...and then it's all downhill from there :)

Hi Rachel, gorgeous trims. Glad you sold the teapots. They were beautiful. Great for a collector.
I need to do some decluttering too. You have inspired me.

Decluttering is very hard! I have been trying to declutter before I move into my new home....

Hey Rachel, I know what you mean...it is good to de-clutter but hard not to buy goodies you come across along the way...hard to resist sometimes.

Those trims are scrumptious, they look vintage. By the way, there's always room for more trims! That's my motto, anyway.
