My Hands Aren't Broken... I'm Still Here

Seems the exercise of blogging is something that has escaped me lately.

I have every good intention of displaying my recent finds in the near future. There are several new goodies but I've been firmly told to curb my appetite. So, with that being said, I'm thinking of gathering a number of items that might be of interest to others and selling some off, thus making room for more lovely finds. I just need to figure out what venue... eBay, Etsy or what?

I think the thrill of the finding a vintage item is greater than having the item. It's the great price I got it for, knowing full well that city prices are much higher. It's almost like a challenge. I've also gotten my sister-in-law hooked. She and I are currently in withdrawal as she's in a similar situation where there's just no room to put all her newly found treasures. They're renting for now, looking for land and will build. Maybe by then, I will have purged some items so I can make room for more and she will have lots of new empty places to fill. 

On a side note, I'm saddened as Colby Blind Guy's 'good' eye has clouded over. We've always felt he had a bit of vision through that eye as he could dodge some objects without a verbal "watch out". He seems to be adapting, though and is loving the time outdoors fetching his ball. Bad weather hinders that time and it's so hard trying to entertain him indoors. He's so full of energy.


  1. Sometimes we all need a break from things.
    I would love to see what you have found and if you decide to sell some your beautiful finds I'll be there if I can. With a house in renovation messiness I don't have much space for display but I'll find some.
    Poor Colby he's such a sweet thing.

  2. lol, Michelle, I don't think you'll have much trouble selling some of your stuff! You've got a really good eye for picking out the kitschy pieces.
    Poor Colby - but he'll be fine with his parents looking out for him!

  3. I have some lovely silver jewelery that I know I'll never wear.

    It will be hard picking out things to sell because I only buy what I like. But... some may want perfect pieces and some of mine have lil' old flea bites and are seasoned with patina. I sometimes swoon over the fact that they were used in days past and probably played with by children. It's the romantic in me and a longing to embrace that childhood magic.

  4. Poor Colby... he can have a nice rest for the winter like the rest of us. I vote for ebay! I think you'll get addicted to selling. Just think as you sell things you can buy more to sell. That should get you over your withdrawl stage. You have wonderful taste and you will love the challenge! Susan xo
