The Charming, Happy Things Sale

I promise a return to normal blogging soon. Normal as in gardening, recipes, stories, pictures... the usual. The month of July, apparently, I've dedicated to moving and clearing out Freeman House. That is, as you might guess, a huge undertaking. Next week is my big 3-day sale in which I'll offer up furniture, dishes, linens, appliances, building material and tools from Freeman House. Yikes. This week I devoted to more packing and selling of a LOT of books, CDs, and movies.

But so you know, there's a final Freeman House Sale going on over at eBay. MaryJane Farm Magazines, a special cake platter, tea cups and saucers, a favorite lunch bag, and many, many other things are there (and will be added throughout the weekend!) for bidding. A final farewell to Freeman House and all her charming, happy things....

As soon as the old dear is empty and all my belongings fit into that 9' by 14' storage building, I'll be back. We'll talk books and cake and gardening and cottage plans (!) and summer recipes and sewing and Millie. Promise.

Wishing you a happy and carefree weekend. -Brin

Glad you're making plans and can't wait to hear about the cottage! Love those Anthropologie dishes; put them on my watch list. :-)

Okay, Brin, we'll look forward to books, and cakes, and so on and so, but just so you'll know: We, out here in blogger land, love the peek into your life--whatever and wherever you are at the moment! Thanks for sharing...I'm headed to e bay now. C.

You are in the midst of what I long to do...simplification. I want to touch every item in my house and make a decision to toss, sell or keep. I just feel badly for you that it has to be under these circumstances. However, I have read your blog long enough to know that you will bounce back and you have the faith to believe that God has an incredible plan for your life...even now He is working His will for your good and His glory.

You just blog whatever is on your heart.

Brin- We have moved 8 times in our marriage. I have moved 24 times in my life. Every time I go through what you are doing. It will clear your heart and you mind. It makes more room for important things. So take rest in knowing we are all still being molded. Blessings, Jenn

So blessed! said...

Sad about Freeman House, but have confidence you will bounce right back and start on a new messy thrilling adventure quickly!
