Too Much "Stuff"!!


I took a little time today to gather up some more STUFF to go to Country Roads to be sold! I have just got too much stuff, and I've been in the mood to start thinning it down a bit. About a month ago or so, I took a big space in the last building at Country Roads. That kind of got me geared up to go through some of the stuff at my house that I just don't need, you know?







Speaking of stuff. . .I thought Buddy, our new dog, was being pretty quiet outside this morning. I was busy doing other things before I thought to look out back and check on him. Apparently he was very busy ripping stuff apart. The chair cushions were old, and to my defense I had flipped the cushion up. But Buddy continued to unpot one of my potted succulents, chew up the sprayer on the house, a solar Tiki light, and a few other odds and ends. This mess has since been cleaned up! It has been so long since my old dog Sally has chewed anything, I kind of forgot how busy young dogs can be!

I've been in the mood to 'downsize' some of my stuff too, maybe it's the weather? Nah.. for me I am looking for a simpler style, one that doesn't require so much pushing around the stuff to blow the dust away! Good luck with the new pooch! t. xoxo

Oh my goodness, Buddy sure was busy! I remember when I was little our dog chewed up our entire living room sofa! Good luck with him!!

Love your "stuff," especially the stained glass window!!!

Growing up we had a dog with a penchant for leather. A crazy a** beagle who was totally entertaining otherwise. Thankfully she outgrew it and she was with us for 16+ years.

Downsizing is good. I've been doing it for the past few years and now I only keep the very special things. Sometimes I get things that I love and keep them for a short time and then sell them.

Looks like more goodies for us to enjoy in your new big space!! It looks amazing and I can't wait to see all of it arranged in there. Hmm looks like Buddy is going to keep you busy along with the grandbabies!!!

Hi Sue,
What a busy pup!! My dog use to jump up on the table when I would walk away and take my food and I would come back and say "where did my pork chop go?"
I'll have to come in and check out all of your wonderful treasures. My place is getting a bit packed too. I see some de-cluttering in my future!
Have a great night.
Sincerely,
Melinda
