Back in the Saddle

Well it has been QUITE a long time since I blogged here but I am ready to get back in the saddle. I been so busy with moving and working and blogging on my "Personal Life" blog that I have really neglected this one.

Since we have moved into the house I have been going through each box of just STUFF I have collected through out the years and deciding to keep or sell...Unfortunately my hoarder..err Collector side has been getting the best of me and I seem to be keeping more then chucking out.

Tomorrow we are having our Second Yard sale since we moved in. Just this past weekend we unloaded our spare garage at the old apartment and WOWZA I can't believe how much we have to sell. I really hope I can just let a lot of it go.

I have several Oil Rain lamps, boxes of vintage clothes and shoes, tons of pewter mugs and plates, Old granite Wear Coffee pots, Toys among toys among toys and other goodies I am sure I will come across as we are unloading more boxes.

Anyway stay tuned for more posts and wish me luck!

The Big Move...

I have moved only 3 times in my life. They all have never been to stressful. I moved when I was young and didn't have much. Well the time has come that I finally move into a house. My grandmother's old house. It is very familiar to me and I know it well but along with me just moving I am moving with a husband and two kids and mass amounts of furniture and other items.

Moving has always been somewhat easy for me cause I did not accumulate too much and it was very easy for me to let things go. Boy how it has changed for me now.

Over the past 10 years my husband and I have gathered lots of stuff..I won't say crap cause I really like the stuff we have collected. Right now we have 2 garage fulls of all kinds of collections and random boxes full of records,movies,vintage clothes, sports memorabilia, vintage knic knacs, old skateboard and surf stuff, Neon signs, framed posters, tons and tons of old toys, old barware,old ceramics amongst other things I have never even unpacked from our last move.

This is the biggest thing I dread about our new move is moving all the stuff in the garages.
I must be strong though and cut loose a lot of it. I mean I like to collect things but I don't want to become a hoarder.
Here are just one tiny small corner of what our garages look like
Behind those flags are boxes and boxes full of vintage toys and playsets. Behind the old beat up bar is full of old 50's and 60's bar ware, underneath all the helmets in the back are records and believe it or not there are 2 couches under that stuff. Oh and the big wooden box thing is actually a craps table and inside that craps table...yep MORE STUFF!
Wish me luck!
