Ooooh good evening beach cottage ladies, I have been doing a lot of lugging about in this old cottage…lugging about of old coastal vintage finds…loved furniture, old mirrors, oars, ladders, crates, oh my I’m drowning in old wooden crates…I have a huge stash of all this old stuff and as you know a week or so ago I decided to let some of them go!

I must say this has been a bit tricky, every time I take a photo I think, ahhh, nah, can’t let go of this one, nah I’ll keep it….

I reckon it’s a real problem for shop keepers, not that I am a shop keeper, but you know what I mean – I can only imagine having a shop and persuading customers not to buy stuff ‘cos you want to keep it…even if it’s just to stroke it or stash it…haha..which I reckon is why I am in the situation whereby there is rather a lot of old vintage stuff, packed and feeling unloved, under this old cottage…

There is an unexpected side to this selling off your stashed furniture too – did you know that letting go of furniture is good for your fitness levels? …going downstairs and under the house/into the garage to find new stuff and bringing it in is good for your muscles and strength…there may even be a whisper of a shadow to the ab area!

Oh my, actually perhaps it’s just my imagination…anyway I’m still moving so I guess that’s a plus…have to say upper arms are no better tho, furniture removal doesn’t help my upper arms…let’s be honest though I gave up on them around about the time I last gave birth…although must mention they are, though large, sporting a rather nice shade of tan courtesy of a bottle in my bathroom and ready for our upcoming holiday ;)   Orange upper arms are pretty much better than blue when going on holiday I always find.

  1. A motivating discussion is worth comment.
    I believe that you should write more on this subject, it might
    not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t discuss these subjects.

    To the next! Many thanks!!

    As usual, everything you photograph looks terrific. You have many, many talents! Absolutely adore your blog.

    Chocolate mud cake! I’ll be back.

    Are you ever going to re-open your shop to sell internationally?

    I’ve contemplated opening a real life, full size, honest to goodness Thrift/Antique store, but have decided that as you have mentioned, I would have a very hard time letting them go. Maybe THAT’S why some pieces are priced so high.
