I’ve Been At It Again… Selling Stuff


It’s official.  Family members think I’ve gone nuts.  I’ve been selling tons more stuff from our house that we no longer want or that no longer fits our style.  To be honest, it’s a weird feeling.  You walk into our home, and our entire front living room, is completely empty, except for our two peacock chairs.  (oh ya, that means that there may have been some furniture swapping… I’ll share that later) But, even though it’s a weird feeling to have an empty space, it’s … [Read more...]
