Estate Treasure Overload?

Am I Swamped?

In a good way

I had an old friend call me last week to ask if I was interested
in looking at a home full of Estate Treasures,

Of course the answer was YES....

I still have another load to pick-up
my car is Still  full

I love that little metal child's chair

 That's Fiestaware from 1 box, 
I have 7 more to open

 I have a 6' 1950's Silver Christmas tree
that goes along with the Ornaments

I Love the Hairpin Legs,   going to unscrew from that
piece of plywood.

All this is going to be sorted, cleaned & listed
lots of Craig's List,  eBay & Yard selling
coming soon

Looks like I'm going to be very

My daughter's think I in over my head,

I won't admit it to them,  
I am Overwhelmed!!!!!

Wishing a Beautiful Easter to All

 Spring seems to finally be peeking its head
up around here in Michigan,  
so happy to see all the white stuff gone......

I've been busy working on a new adventure,
can't wait to share it all as soon as I have it completed

Happy Easter & Spring to

Still working on the Mess...

Still working on the mess...   but while clearing out the one room (Studio/Work room)  it seems the other few rooms I have are taking on the meaning of disaster....    Why is one rooms cleaning seem to get the rest of the place also looking like a mess?     I have boxes stacked in my now bedroom which use to be the dining room and the living room which has limited seating,  now only has room for 1....
Good thing that I am the only 1 who lives here.

I'll be back again,  hopefully this weekend with photos too!   
stay warm

an OMG moment...

A before nightmare
I want to put behind me...

Hopefully this post & photos are the before with an after quickly followed.

This past year of no internet & no blogging was not a do nothing year,  it was filled with both creative moments and back breaking work...

Lots of fun stitching projects for profit and gifts with the most important being the Bridal Garter I stitched for my Niece Ashley's  Wedding 
[That will be a separate post when I get the photos]

The back breaking was several Estate sales, 2 of them being for the same family 
Both held within a month...not to forget that I also injured my knee doing many stairs with heavy boxes, having to use a cane at the Wedding.

Now to get to the posted photos

The room pictured is my work room / studio which as you can see is a Mess!!!!

There's not much work or creating happening lately, because of the mess in there.
This room used to be my bedroom but in the summer I switched my dining room and bed around.  I only have AC as a window unit in the kitchen, so I'm much cooler sleeping in the dining room and decided to keep it this way since its just me up here.

All those boxes in my studio are supplies for creating or vintage treasures left over from the Estate sales....

Boy, it sure takes me a long time to get to the point...

So here goes,
Where in the world do I begin
