Man, am I tired. I realized it yesterday when someone said that Thanksgiving is next week. I started to argue, but when I pulled out my phone and checked the calendar, they were right! I couldn’t believe it, did we have Halloween? I vaguely remember weird little people walking around my neighborhood but October, did we skip a month?
This is what happens when I get too busy, too crazy, time flies by and I don’t like it. With Marketplace last week, the Big Sale this Saturday, getting my space at Sanctuary of Davidson ready for Christmas, I feel like a little tornado.
This is what my house has looked like for the past month. If you have come over for a visit and I have held you at the front door now you know why!
This is what my garage looks like. Husband is not happy. His car has been out in the “elements”. I have to admit I am a little embarrassed by how much stuff I have for the sale. When Nester and I first started talking about having a sale, I thought sure I can pull some stuff together. I had no idea that it was going to turn into the get rid of everything fest that it has become. I always talk about how I don’t like to spend money and how I don’t “shop”. Well someone has been doing some shopping around here! All those Saturday yard sales, quick stops to Goodwill, and dumpster diving adds up. I have a ridiculous amount of stuff and I want it gone.
I am starting to see the light. Now that I have most of the sale stuff out in my garage, my home looks different. It almost looks bare and simple, but in a good way. If you came over you may not notice much of a difference because I still have 8 out of 10 walls covered in artwork but it is different. My home feels more open, organized, I feel like I can breathe.
When you pull this much stuff out of your closet and still have clothes to wear, that’s just too much. I love my closet now, so empty, so full of less choices, so easy. Getting dressed in the mornings has been less of a headache and I love it.
The Big Sale is going to be awesome. If you love finding a deal you don’t want to miss this. I have lots of interesting and odd things that I have been collecting and now it’s time to let go. Pallet shelves anyone!? Also have you seen what Nester is selling? Unbelievable.
The Big Sale will have tons of clothes, jewerly and artwork.
Lots and lots and lots of cool and unique household items.
And if you like to do projects, I have cleaned out my studio and have a tons of supplies!
Everything from brand new upholstery tools to vintage fabric!
I’m also going to set up a little Button Bird Designs area in case you want to do some early Christmas shopping, buy handmade and support a starving artist!
Emily is coming to the Big Sale too, she’ll have her two books Grace for the Good Girl and Graceful to sell and sign!!! Also Reeve may be there singing for us!! Have you heard this girl sing!?!?! Every time she sings I cry, the most beautiful and amazing voice. You can learn more about Reeve, buy her music, and sign up for her email list here.
But the best part and the whole reason for the sale…….. A portion of all sales will go to Compassion International!!!
When: Saturday November 17th 11:00am to 3:00pm
Where: Wynfield Forest Clubhouse, 15722 Wynfield Creek Parkway Huntersville, NC 28078
Hope to see you there!
