Thank you for your sweet comment Barbara! And thank you for mentioning me. I'm sorry I have not been commenting more but now I am going to be stalking your blog to see when you start getting rid of your vintage cards and paper!
I hope you feel better soon!

Too bad they won't smell really bad when they expire. It would be alot easier to get rid of that way, wouldn't it?!

I love this line - "It's finally dawned on me that I can appreciate what other people make or have without needing to make or have it myself." That's a lesson that I need to learn! Thanks for the inspiration.


I'm taking this quote "I can appreciate what other people make or have without needing to make or have it myself" and displaying it prominently on my craft cabinet.

Great idea ... you have a healthy attitude!!


When you decide to get rid of the papers, be sure to let us all know! I haven't set an expiration date for all of my crap yet, LOL!


A good philosophy! My Grandma gave me one of those parasol girls cards for my birthday when I was little and I loved it. I hope you make your expiration date.


You are a brave, brave grrrrl. I don't think I could do that. But I will, once I open the etsy shop!

Proud of you! Sometimes we just have to acknowledge that we aren't going to use something and pass it on to those who will.

Some great ideas Barbara. I can always count on you for pearls of wisdom!


Barbara - Just in case I haven't told you lately, I LOVE your blog SO much!
Your photos are great, we so obviously are attracted to the very same sorts of things always, and you are a source of inspiration to me.
Oh, how I aspire to share your newfound desire to purge some of your stuff. I feel as though I am addicted to stuff - and I seriously need to work on that. It has become overwhelming, and yet I have SUCH a hard time parting with things!
I'm trying to work on it, and, as I said - you inspire me. Thank you.


I applaud your desire to cut back on the stuff, but I would have a hard time with the books. That is an adorable illustration for "The Land of Counterpane."
