To Let Go or Not To Let Go
... that's a hard decision!!!
I've been thinning things out even more... yes, I am an expert at storing three times as many things in a space that you would think could possibly fit in said space... and it feels good to make room... but I am having second thoughts about some of the items.
For instance, that old tobacco tin at the top... don't you just LOVE the graphics on it? I would keep it if the entire thing was black and cream, but years ago someone painted the lid and rim a sea-foam green. I suppose I could paint over it, but then there's one more thing I would have to work on and I already have many more big projects that have been waiting for months.
And this ironstone gravy boat with the light crazing and faded gold trim....
I collect ironstone, but all my other pieces are just white... no gold on them.
But if I also kept this little fancy teacup...
...and this pretty chocolate mug.... then I'd have a collection of gold trimmed pieces! ;)
Sigh... I'd better not, I still have a lot of pieces that I'm not sure will fit in the kitchen once we finally renovate it this summer. You know, the kitchen renovation I have talked about for the last few years here on my blog. I have high hopes that it will come to pass in the next few months... fingers crossed!!!
So, if you would like to see some of the items I am letting go, just visit the Vintage pages of my website. Who knows, you just might find something that you've been looking for! :)
