Gypsy, Kris, Donna, Kate and I spent a large part of today getting the shop set up for the sale that starts next Thursday. It was a regular furniture ho down with furniture dancing everywhere. We are probably 75% done, but things are still moving around. We try to keep the smalls out until we have the furniture in place. So there is still an entire layer of smalls to smear over the tentative furniture set up.
Window shoppers were everywhere today.
My tuba and iron fence.
Donna lifting and hoisting.
My cog table.
Original Mame poster and my red ladder.
These benches are elegant.
My china cabinet (in brown). bahhhh!
Tables over tables next to tables.
Great buffet in greenish brown paint.
More photos from the final set-up tomorrow. With most of the smalls and a bunch of Christmas to be added.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
