keeping only the family treasures...


As I am purging, and preparing to paint our living room, dining room and kitchen, I am massively purging my accumulations of so very much vintage stuff, and keeping only what I or someone else in the family considers a treasure...
like this huge deer, a Christmas present from my hubby, and this three drawer, green knobbed cabinet that was the last thing my mom painted...



 or this 9 drawer cabinet, that my hubby refurbished for me...when we paint the rooms, I will be painting this as well...
 These loving cups and trophies I have been collecting for my son since he was young...someday they will be in his own home...
 and these books are from my husbands and my family... the cabinet was purchased from a wonderful friend...
 and the rabbits...well, they have their own story (that I have told in the past)...
so...tomorrow I am on to purging the dining room...
I have a carload of vintage goodies to take to STARS tomorrow...my booth will be packed with lots and lots newness...
hope you are all having a great start to the summer!

Good for you! Letting go of things is hard! I want to keep stuff, just so I know I have it, even when I don't use it!
You'll be busy painting all those rooms and can come over here to help me paint my living room. I'm thinking about a different color in there.
That is so cool that your chairs sold right away!
Happy Painting!
