Well guys, it is almost time for the Thompson’s to say goodbye to our two-story sister. We are set to close in less than 2 weeks! I’m not ready to sit down and really process my feelings about leaving our beloved home, all I know is that when I have allowed myself even momentary brain space to think about moving my eyes get a little blurry and a lump starts forming in the back of my throat…. so I just don’t think about it. Luckily, the Oliver and Carl Stuart projects are keeping my mind fairly occupied so I haven’t had time to take a sentimental walk down memory lane with Sister. . . yet.
What I have been forced to come to terms with is the fact that, in addition to Sister, I will also be leaving behind my farmhouse style. Oh, this makes me sad! Farmhouse/Cottage Style is my absolute favorite. It is the style that I naturally gravitate toward and is the style that I think most closely reflects my character/personality. But, as much as I have fought it, Carl Stuart is destined toward a different path. I kept trying to convince myself that our new home had cottage roots buried deep within its history but the longer I spend with C.S. the more evident it has become that it has an entirely different style story to tell…. more on that at a later time.
So that means I no longer will be using my farmhouse furnishings and decor. 😢 So sad for me, but if you too love the cottage/farmhouse style, this could be an exciting opportunity for you! Next Weekend, Friday and Saturday (July 27-28), 7am – 5pm. Sister will be hosting a HUGE indoor estate sale. Basically, the plan is to move everything out that I am planning to keep to our rental so that everything left in the house will be available to purchase. (items previously purchased by new homeowners will be marked SOLD).
I will also be bringing leftover furnishing and decor from past projects from storage to add to the mix so the inventory should be plentiful.
I have started packing, sorting, and pricing, therefore currently my house looks like this:
So I’ll go ahead and sprinkle some old photos on this page to give you an idea of what might be available at the Sale.
(keeping clock, family pics, family verse and a few knick knacks)
(keeping chalkboard and maybe the baskets)

See anything you might like? If not, you haven’t seen all the stuff I’m pulling out of cabinets and storage…..
I’m just going to be real honest with ya, life is CRAZY right now trying to move while finishing up 1 project and desperately trying to get another project off the ground, I am meeting myself coming and going; so, if you leave me a message about a certain item or price there is a real good chance I won’t see it or have time to respond. If you don’t mind, please refrain from knocking on my door prior to the sale date for an early look around- it will totally stress me out to let you into the chaos that is our current state of home. I’d rather you wait until everything is priced and organized for your sanity and mine. I hope you understand. I am not planning on early sales but I am not guaranteeing it won’t happen, either. In other words, please don’t get mad at me. (people pleaser problem).
Hope to see you there! Please spread the word.
