late summer display.


As summer comes to an end
I've put away the glass sea floats
and brought out the vintage rag ball.

A little bit of summer still
and a hint of autumn.

negative space.


I am still basking in the
wonderfulness of empty space.

Our garage is SO empty it echoes.
And I am loving it.

Today's job?

We gave away all our big vintage clay pots,
but some of them were broken by the weather
over the years

so today I am picking up pot shards
from behind the potting shed

in anticipation of re-mulching
another now empty space.

Things around our house are LOOKING GOOD.

simplify, simplify, simplify.




I am one happy camper.

After the sale in my garage, I wanted to do a simple display
for a now blank wall.

(You can see this empty wall in a recent post.)

In the backyard I had a falling-apart table
so I used one of the table's side boards as a shelf.

And bought two $1.19 white brackets at home depot.  They are
barely noticeable under the shelf.

And now I have a shelf to display my vintage dishpan collection
for the first time ever.

I bought all the dishpans at local Estate Sales over
the span of many years.

And I can sit on my "curbside-find" bench
for the first time ever.

So it is a day of firsts.



And while the wall looked very interesting before the sale,
I am happy to say that most everything is living at new homes now!

Like I said, I am a happy camper.
