Y'all, we're having a Yard Sale!

Hello, everyone. This is Hillary LIVE and in technicolor. I am so thankful for y'all putting up with my little break and some re-runs. It's like summer TV, but without the bad reality shows.

I have not accomplished what I intended this week, nor have I checked off any day's worth of tasks on the to-do list. {Hold your Employee of the Year awards, please.} I have been able to work out every day and sleep. Yes, sleep! You should try it; it's good stuff.

With all this extra sleep in my life, crazy things started happening. I've taken my kids on fun field trips every day and have yelled at them 28% less often. And Jason and I set all kinds of over-achieving goals and decided we'd have a yard sale on Saturday. We're working on World Peace next weekend if the weather is still nice.

I do love a yard sale, but the prep work involved is much like moving. And deep cleaning. Only moving and deep cleaning stuff you don't want anymore, but you have to care enough about it to make someone else want it. Ugh.

Would you like a tour of some of the items that will be in the yard sale?
I thought you might. Come on over!

The biggest thing we want to get rid of is this Queen sized bed with headboard and matching dresser. It's from Pier 1 and just not being used since we turned the spare bedroom into our crap accumulating play room.
Garage Sale 014
Next on the chopping block is a lovely cut chenille sofa from our old house. {Broom, kite and rake not included, but could be for the right price.}
Garage Sale 017
Ooh! I love these fun paintings, but I just don't a place for them anymore. The top ones are from a local-ish {just over the TN state line} artist, Joanna, and are going to be really hard to part with. But they don't fit into the new breakfast room. I might have to sneak these back upstairs to hug them a little bit more.
Garage Sale 012
And this is an adorable Southern Living at Home painting that I just can't place. Garage Sale 002
We have a Queen and King sized down duvet and covers for each. Then there are things like a fancy toile dog bed, a Pottery Barn corner shelf and a fun metal candle holder for the wall.
Garage Sale 011
And don't get me started on the Clinique bonus goodies that have never been touched- bags of them. I'm a sucker for a bonus. You'd think I wouldn't have an eye wrinkle, but you would be wrong.
Garage Sale 008
Oh, my at the games. Do you think someone I might or might not be married to loves Star Wars?
Garage Sale 007
And since I'm dishing on him, I'll admit I have a bit of a picture frame issue. {And that basket over there in the corner is full of stuffed animals and other unloved kids stuff.}
Garage Sale 005
We have an Xbox to sell, too!
Garage Sale 003
You name it {TV, cafe table and chairs, Thomas trains- not mine, my friend Kat's, curtains, pillows and maybe even a surprise!}, we've got it! So, come on!

Blog readers get a special discount, so be sure to let me know.

If you are in the North AL, Southern TN area, then come on into Huntsville and we are off Bailey Cove near SE Tar-jhay. Just follow the signs.

And bring your ones and your change.
Because I will most likely take a quarter for that.

It looks like you have been busy! And I'm sure you will have a great sale! I need to do that too. One of these days...

Good luck!

I totally support you on your frame 'issue.' If I were local, I'd take them off your hands! ;-)

Good luck with the sale!

Hill,
I want the Clinique!!! And is that an XBox 360??? Gavin wants one for Christmas... Hayden will pay ya for it...Everything looks good. Wish I could be there! Love ya, Mom

Melissa said...

That's funny about the Clinique! I'm the same way. I have gotten better though, and am now forcing myself to go through the bonus as soon as I get it and throw away the stuff I'll never use.

Carrie said...

Save some 5x7 frames for me if you have them!

nick, robyn and taylor said...

I WISH I was closer! I would totally buy the SLAH pic that no longer fits in the breakfast room. Dang!

chrisannan said...

Good stuff! How much for the bed and dresser?

Bobbi Janay @When did I go from a kid to a grown up? said...

Man I lived closer I love that headboard, and we need one so bad.

Jenn McPherson said...

Okay, your picture frame obsession has gone too far. I was rolling. At least you aren't me. I am not scared (please forget that I am a photographer and help people design their homes with my images!!) to leave the same photo in so long that when you go to remove it, you have to peel and windex it off...that's sad. Good luck on your sale! Can't wait to hear stories of people talking you DOWN from .50. Those are the best!

Emily said...

i'm right there with you on the frames.. have tons of them stashed in drawers and cabinets. i buy them without even having a picture in mind to put in it!

so how'd it go?? was it a successful yard sale?

You make my day!
I'd hug you, but this screen makes it a little awkward.
xoxo,
Hillary
