Thought you might like to help me wave Goodbye to more Antiques and collectables.... sometimes a person, ( ME) can just have too much stuff. Especially when I enjoy finding something new a redoing it....somewhere along the line I must turn it over...So with another sale this weekend I said farwell to this end table, (not the watering can!) even I have my principals!!!Ha! A lovely lady purchased it for her daughters bedroom...she loved it which made me happy...

My antique "Universal Electric" stove...with 4 burners that WORK and a warming oven....So weighed a ton! bye-bye...I've enjoyed you for 20 some years, now you will make someone else smile...
The antique wicker High chair...will make some sweet baby happy...

It is amazing what you can let go when you set your mind to if I can just let go of this@#$%^&*(*&^%$# kidney stone!!!! Happy Holiday, xoxo~Kathy.


  1. Hi Kathy...I sure wish I lived near you...that gorgeous stove and adorable high chair would have found it's way into my house...ofcourse I would have to contend with snow instead of sun....Sue in Atlanta

  2. Someone got some really gorgeous treasures. I have a hard time letting go of any of my antiques. Maybe someday. I just give whatever I don't have room for to my DIL. I can't wait to see what new you get. Hope you're better soon. Hugs, Marty

  3. Hi Kathy!
    I hopped over from BJ's place...Hope you are feeling better. my blogger friend just had a similar problem...not good!

    You are good to part with your things! I must do it..way too much at an age where we are supposed to be Simplifying!!!

    Hope you are enjoying the is just gorgeous here on the East end of Long Island, NY!

  4. Oh my goodness! How can you let let precious stove go? I know that had to hurt! ehehehehehe


  5. O, for crying out loud, Kathy....I just wish I lived close to you...I would have taken some of these wonderful items off your hands!! :>)

  6. Oh wow! You got rid of some great stuff! I love that high chair! Very cute and vintagy!
    *Shocked* I didn't know you have a kidney stone, you poor thing!

  7. It must be hard to say goodbye to your things! I know it would be for me - although I find I am most ruthless when it is moving time. I reach a point where I simply can't take everything with me!

    I hope you feel better soon! That kidney stone business is not fun.


  8. Oh my gosh I would have kept the oven and high chair for you and let you use them:(

    What a good girl you are parting with such treasures!!!!

  9. Hi Kathy,

    Those are some lovely treasures you let go of, I love the high chair. I hope you let go of the kidney stone soon...they are no fun!!

  10. It must have been so hard to say goodbye to those lovely things, Kathy. I like them all!....Christine

  11. You are right those treasures that was once yours will become treasures for someone else...and so the passing of treasures will continue.

  12. Oooh, I love that stove! I'm glad you are taking the move and the letting go all in stride.

    I'm so sorry you are going through the pain of a kidney stone on top of all this other stuff. Wishing you health!

  13. Beautiful things to say goodbye too, Kathy.

    I was hoping to hear you were feeling better!!

  14. I'm sniffling just watching your beautiful things go bye-bye! I have a hard time letting go of things myself. I am sure your treasures will make the new owners very happy, though.

    Love your fall header photo, BTW.


  15. Kathy- Being a sentimental 'stuff' person this makes me sad. But it does feel SO good to get rid of 'stuff', especially when you're moving so congrats. LOVE that wicker high chair and the stove!

  16. Kathy, I do not know how in the world you could watch them drive away with the stove. OMG that is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I am afraid I would still be sitting at the driveway crying, even with the move, I just don't think I could have let it go. I had so prayed that your darn kidney stone would move on and give you some peace. I pray that it will move soon. I have had them so I know what you are feeling. It was so painful to pass it, but once I did oh my gosh I felt like a million bucks for sure. I will keep you in my prayers. When is the move taking place? Take care of yourself my friend. Country hugs, Sherry

  17. I understand how hard it is...I am a terrible pack rat. It is so difficult to part with things..I must admit I am getting better.

    Wish I lived nearby! :)

  18. Kathy~

    I think I know how difficult it must have been to make the decisions of letting go of your precious treasures....I would have bought the highchair for my grandbabies and the oven for childhood memories.

    I wish you luck with your kidney stones, someone as kind and gentle as you shouldn't have to suffer~~


  19. Wow! You said goodbye to some really good stuff! At least it will all have new homes where it will be appreciated and loved! Good luck with the kidney stone and I hope it goes soon.

  20. You are being so 'grown up' about this! I would be crying because I'm not a good 'leter goer of':( I hope you are feeling well. Prayers for you! Twyla


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
