Over and Out

 It has come to my attention that my days of purchasing
 everything that has anything to do with any one of my assorted passions
(e.g. dishware, doll houses, scottie dogs, L. M. Montgomery)
are OVER.
Now don't get me wrong...this does not mean that I don't on occasion find treasures to bring home, it's just that I make a conscious decision as to their true "treasure worthiness" prior to purchase. This is fantastic in my book because it makes me feel really good about #1 on my new
Cottage Quest stop buying stuff!
Of course this means it's time to seriously start considering #2....
 declutter the stuff you have.

Let it be said this may take awhile. A long while. Even so I am proud to say progress is definitely in the works. Daily progress in fact. No matter what craziness is on the agenda I have made it a standing habit to send at least one of something OUT THE DOOR before my head hits the pillow. And most recently my means of disposal has branched beyond the trash, the donations, and the Craig's list offerings to...

This just so happens to be a long time favorite haunt of mine. Only this time instead of browsing the rows...

I'm stocking them!!!


  1. you can buy to stock your shelves.........

    1. Every time I walk in the door I have that very urge!!!

  2. This is a fun and creative way of weeding the home :) I have done this in the past,and loved it. These days I just mostly give away or donate as I am just not up to stocking shelfs :) Looks like you are loading those shelfs with some great stuff.....I am thinking they won't sit long before someone just has to have that certain item :) Blessings on your sales

    1. You are so right is fun at the moment and gets me out of the house and meeting new people but for the long haul I can see it would get very tiring. Hopefully most everything is gone before the fun stops...goodness knows I don't want to restock my home!!!

  3. Good for you, Natalie Jo! I am inspired by your example, and will try to do better at this as well.
