Boy I wanted to snatch up those darling nut cups, but I had to hold myself back, I am on a mission to make some money right now and not spend... it helped with the fact that I had to go to our daughters house for a couple days to babysit...LOL Hugs, Diane P.S. I remember when you found those treasures!


This is so interesting to me, because I've been feeling very much the same way, and haven't brought out my spring collections for a couple of years. Some of that is because I don't have young children and company around as often as I used to. I used to do some of that sort of thing for them. Partly, I want "simpler". My favorite look has always been sort of that simple farmhouse look that is becoming popular now. Not so much clutter. One of my favorite rooms is at the American Folk Art Museum. It's painted white, and has just a few very cool old things in it, like an old weathered and handmade barber's pole. Everything stood out in a special way, and yet it felt restful. I liked that about it.

I promise to take good care of your fuzzy chicks. I just placed my order on Etsy. The timing couldn't be more perfect. I just posted pictures of my favorite Easter collections on my blog today. They are going to a good home. If your lacy nut cups would have been available, I would have snatched those up too. Happy Spring!!

I'm constantly yelling at my kids "less is more" because I really believe that. I love less.
But it's hard!

Into Vintage

Selling online is so handy when the time comes for liberation. I'm already eyeballing a bunch of my vintage furniture in anticipation of liberating it at summer shows. Not to mention those mystery boxes in the basement - enough already with those!

I need liberated. I'm just saying.


"Sometimes my stuff does not make me happy."
That's it right there. And more stuff makes me less happy than I already wasn't. I love your blog.....

I've been decorating/crafting for Easter and taking blog pictures since 7AM, and it's now almost 1PM. There's something seriously wrong with that! I admire your strength and courage to let go of some of your Easter things, Mrs. Oodles. You are definitely an inspiration at this moment!!!


Oodles, I don't even know who you are anymore! When was the last time you even went to an estate sale?

I agree with you 100 percent !! I am feeling that way about all holidays, it not so much about the holiday, it seems more about how much "stuff" you can display. My mom was very simple and are holidays were the best!!!
