New start, new decor, new beginning....

Wouldnt you just like to clear out your home and start again, new start, new decor???

As much as I love all of my 'stuff', and the mix of styles we live with, on occasion, I daydream about a huge change.
I guess that is why I moved alot throughout the years, I absolutely loved redecorating, and the challenge of making everything fit and work in a new space.

A dear friend of mine is doing 'just that', and downsizing from a 4 bedroom home filled to the brim with country style decor, scattered antiques, and craft oozing out of her creative room! Jules has found a quaint little apartment, and has decided to change and minimize her decor drastically!

I still cant believe it, as we always compared ourselves with our collections and dare I say, dust! My heart was breaking while helping her pack, she ruthlessly tossed kitchenalia, furniture, and whatever else, my way!
Im helping Jules out, and will be selling alot of her treasures at my studio sale on the 30th. If I can part with them, and they dont find their way into my home, that is!

Jules is 'one strong junker', and has decided on more of the clean , white lines of shabby, vintage chic. Becoming a minimalist will be a challenge for her, but an adventure and a new beginning. 

This fainting lounge, as Jules calls it, will get a recover.  I was also lucky enough to buy off her the most gorgeous antique dressing table, which I will show you soon When I can fit it in its new place!)

So it makes me wonder..... can you take the collecting gene out of a  hoarder  collector, or are we destined to re-offend?? I may have to keep a close eye on Jules, just in case she needs to purge again!

So please, if you are local, come along to the studio sale, and pickup some great treasures, lots of interesting finds to be found!

So here is just a sneekpeek of specials piling in, it will be a tight squeeze!

  3. I'm in that place right now. Wish I could start all over from scratch! I have *way* too much junk piled up in my basement and scattered around the house. I'm trying to organize it all but it's really overwhelming. :)
