Change Is Good


Good morning friends!
Happy Hump Day!

So Bob and I decided to keep our house.
Plans now are to have someone
come out and evaluate whether
we add on or add a second story.
With that said,
I decided change was good.

Therefore I am selling this cabinet
in our hallway.

Am thinning out a bit.
Moved this bucket bench and drysink in.

Decorated it a bit.
Waiting for Bob to take down
the cabinet above the drysink.
This one will be moved to our bedroom,
while our bedroom hanging cabinet
will be hung back in the hallway.
More things will be sold.
Already took a few crocks and other prims
to our store.
I want to minimalize my decor now.
Am on the lookout for 3 new pieces.
Once I have those, I will sell a few more
unless of course we start the redo
before I find my dream pieces.

One is a mule chest.
We bought one a few years back,
and regrettably sold it.

Will show the final redo in a bit.

Change Is Good Blessings To All!


  1. the thought of moving makes me ill we have been here so long and have lots of things. But probably not as many as you do.

    1. Yes the thought of moving everything was another issue I was struggling with. Staying put. Janice

  2. Have you considered that if you have an upstairs, as you age, it get more difficult climbing those stairs.
    I wouldn't mind living in a one story house. Of course, I'm speaking from my own experience.

    We all accumulate so much stuff and as family pass on, we inherit their stuff.
    I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Yes we have considered that getting older gets more difficult, but I believe we have another 10-15 years before worrying about that. Thank you for the concern. Janice

  3. Love your sale items Janice. I hope you and Bob have a great July 4th!!

    1. Thanks Janet! Having hot wings and potato salad. Strawberry cheesecake for dessert. Janice

  4. You are always!
    Happy 4th to you and Bob.

    1. LOL I am kind of getting tired of it. I say that now. LOL Janice

  5. Change is a constant in life....I think. Best of luck!!

  6. I admire you for having the courage to "let go"....I so see the need, and know it will be best for Little Crow (as he is an only child and has no interest in my "history"), but's hard! Thought WWR would resolve all the issues...but, not so much LOL. Love that bucket bench!! Happy Independence Day if I don't get back here before then! ~Robin~

    1. I have been letting quite a bit go...but waiting to buy a few good furniture pieces. Janice

  7. Hi Janice,
    So happy you made a decision and are moving forward with it!! It sure is hard to let go of those things you love, but if you need to make room for other things, it needs to happen!! Love your bucket bench and dry sink!! Have a wonderful 4th!!
    Heart Hugs~

  8. The bucket bench and dry sink were in our bedroom. Looks better in our hall. Happy 4th to you too! Janice

  9. The thought of moving comes around every so often. We know that we won't be here forever. But for now it's where we want to be. Good luck with your hunt for some new pieces... change can be a very good thing!

  10. Thank you! Hope you have a great weekend! Janice

  11. Glad you are staying, you have a great house. love the photos and prayers for the perfect answers. Happy 4th,blessings wished. Love the red cabinet too

  12. You have awesome pieces that I'm sure will sell fast! Can't wait to see what your plans for adding on are.

  13. We are staying put, but not sure is adding up or out. Waiting on the general contractor to come over...aka Bob's cousin to decide. Janice
