I wanted to share some photos of different things that I collect that are part of my decor before I pack them up. I have 4 bookcases in the living room from Ikea that have extenders on the top where I house some of my collectibles.
Fortunately I’ll be able to take the bookcases with me. I’m just not sure I’m actually going to be putting some of these collections back though (not sure I’ll use the extenders). Quite a bit will be sold in the garage sale we’ll be having before we move.
This is my collection of roosters. A few are vintage. The big ones were all found at thrift stores and I think I’m going to sell those.
This is my collection of tea pots. I’m only keeping 3.
I’m keeping this blue and white transferware teapot, the Mackenzie-Childs teapot (which is over 20 years old and I can’t remember the pattern – Courtly Check?) and the cherry pot-for-one in the first photo.
I’m only going to take 2 or 3 white pitchers. I do use a couple of them frequently. Although, I rarely use the big wide one or the small one. So those and a few others are destined for the garage sale for sure.
Lastly some of my mercury glass collection (I have more in the garage). I like to use mercury glass in the winter so I’ll keep my favorite pieces. But the ones that I’m not so attached to, like the mercury glass decanter in the back of the shelf, will be sold. Not sure about the globes just yet. 3 are vintage – I may keep those.
I’m packing up the easy stuff first since we’re still waiting on underwriting to approve the buyers loan (don’t want to have to unpack a ton if their loan doesn’t go through). We should know by the end of the week if everything is ok on that front
