Remember when?




Do you recall how open and innocent and empty my antique mall space was the day I moved in?



Egads! (that’s me channeling my mother, by the way)



And yet, I must be doing something wrong.



Because as my mall space fills up, my house doesn’t seem to be any less full.



What’s up with that?

Don’t answer that. 

(I just returned from an estate sale. I’m starting to sense a pattern here.)



And if you’re wondering about those three dressers that were on the brink of becoming a permanent part of the scenery here, they are going, going, gone!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. That booth is so darn adorable, the ornaments on the screen are inspiration to me! Can you imagine the nerve of someone who might step in there and BUY something!? Oh dear, wish it were me!

  7. No no no...it is not about getting it out of the house it is about the discovery of where you can house things. i.e. linens inside a picnic basket...I need eight more. Ooo buttons in old tin canisters...I need one for every color of button. Its a cycle, don't break it or we won't get to drool over all this loveliness...smiles..Renee

  18. Fun, festive, fabulous!!! I love, love, love your booth (and alliteration)!!♥

    When I was little, my mom had on display an Infant of Prague statue that was similar, if not identical, to the one you have. It used to give me the heebie-jeebies, because I always sensed that its eyes were following me--I tried to fake it out by darting in front of it in different directions, but nope, those creepy eyes still followed me! I finally told my mother in my overly dramatic way that I refused to enter that room again until she removed that creepy statue! She didn't, of course, and obviously I survived, but not without PTSD flashbacks whenever I see an Infant of Prague statue to this day! Egads!

    Um, you did SELL the dressers, didn't you??

  20. Wish I could visit your booth in person. I would buy everything, I'm afraid. Your taste is exquisite! Have a great day!

  21. It must be so exciting to have a bigger Monticello space for Christmas this year! You have room to really go holiday crazy with the decorating. So fun! It looks wonderful as always, Sweets.

    I'm afraid as long as you have the junking bug, the garage where cars can't park will forever be just that....:)

  22. Do you sell things from your booth on-line, because I'd buy your ornament tree on the screen if you do (I reallllly wanted to win that one you were giving away!!). Please let me know if it's for sale & can be shipped: vicki.terlap(at)gmail.com Thanks!!

  23. It's wonderful!!! Just wish I was close to do some Christmas shopping!

  24. This is so funny. Only because it hits so close to home. I was just looking at a picture of when I moved into my space about 6 months ago and how neatly everything was spaced out. And now, wow! I need to move into a bigger space! I guess only to store the hoard. And sell some too I suppose. It's a sickness I swear.

  26. Oh I see you have excellent taste. I had to follow your blog now. :) I have an antique booth too. Maybe you'll inspire me.

  27. My goodness gracious.....just look at all of that vintage Christmas! There just isn't that much to find down yonders...I think it's all up where you are. Love your booth, of course, and I'd be there to shop it if you were here.

    Love to you!
