It is the annual spring cleaning of the northside booth.
No furniture was rearranged.
I really couldn't figure a better arrangement than what I've already got.
It was just wiped off and dusted.
Every item moved to a new home.
Wanting the booth to look fresh and old items look new again.
This trick tends to work, so it is an annual tradition now, as this is year #3 of spring cleaning.
I've rearranged a few other times during the year, but nothing this drastic!
So, come along for the tour, and I'll also attempt to point out new items I've bought recently too.
First - you can hardly tell, but there's a small set of petalware from MacBeth Evans on the tiny rounded corner cabinet on top of the giant wood crate where jadeite, milk glass, and pretty pale yellow dishes now sit.
There's an 8+ piece setting of Currier and Ives bought recently.
Hard to see on the top shelf of the mint green shelf.
The "mantiques" shelf has finally been moved.
It had been the one constant over the years.
I hope the men can find it, since it moved a whole 4 feet to the left.
Some Melmac on the bottom recently acquired in a box lot.
Shh... don't tell anyone but behind the lovely green cabinet is where I store the less desirable stuff that doesn't fit my booth well. That didn't change. Oh well!
I tried to corral all the pretty juice glasses in one place on the light blue shelf. There are 10+ new ones in there.
My very first sign still hangs over 3.5 years later.
The copper colored West Bend Bakery Bin is new. I'd never seen one before!
Some red pieces have been added in here.
A new hanging item or two.
Oh geeze, I've forgotten what all I've bought, but I guarantee, if you look real close there a new piece in here somewhere...
Likely, the same rings true for this section!
Well, look, I know I brought in about 6 paper boxes full of new stuff, I just can't for the life of me remember what they are now.
On another note...
It's official (and why I've been so MIA lately)... my house is listed for sale. I say MY (instead of ours) because I bought this thing fresh out of college at 22. I lived here almost 4 years before I met my now husband. And it was another 2 before he moved in. It has served me well for nearly 8 years now... but it's time to get back to our country roots. We're looking for an old farmhouse on some land to call our own. We want farm fresh eggs and barn cats crawling around keeping away the mice. We want to know our neighbors but not live 5 feet from them. This house is minutes from downtown Indy, Broadripple, and Eagle Creek Park. Anyways, with all this said, if you're in Indianapolis and need a good Home (or know someone who needs a good home) - message me and I'll supply the details! 😘😘
Less than 24 hours after listing, we got an offer above asking on our home. It's bittersweet (see story above), but we're happy to move on to the next chapter of our lives. We close in mid-May and we haven't found our next home yet. And boy, have we really been pounding the pavement looking at houses. We may be living in The Beast down by the river. You know I'll keep you updated.
Have a wonderful week!
