First, before I get into this ...I want to quickly thank all of you who have decided you would like to follow this blog! It's difficult for me to believe when I remember how tough it was starting out. Just ..THANK YOU! I never fail to wonder why...and my heart swells with gratefulness for all of you. Every single one of you!! I love you for it! I do!!
I've had them both. Buyers remorse AND sellers remorse. Buyers remorse when I have bought something I honestly didn't need...and wasn't sure if I even really wanted it all that badly after I left the store. Have you ever just stood in the parking lot of a ...oh...any store actually...and wanted to take something back? I have! Did I? Probably not...I'm wishy washy that way!
Sellers remorse. Yep, had that too. For instance when I sold our adorable little motorhome. The moment I saw those two sweet women drive out of the driveway in my little motorhome that Pat and I had loved...our dream...I cried half the night and on and off for a week..maybe more. The memory still hurts. (I'm sure you know it wasn't the "motorhome" but the loss and memories...)
My bike. I bought a lovely bike about six or more years ago, put an adorable basket on it, one with leather straps...woven beautifully. Then I got married and moved to a new home which took up lots of my time and my bike, my beautiful forest green and cream bike sat...and sat..and sat.
Finally I sold it at a garage sale...watched it loaded into a truck and driven away. All gone... I didn't cry but I wanted to. My throat hurt.
Same with my youngest daughters baby doll that her grandma gave her when she was just a tot. I should NOT have sold it. But ..that's water under the bridge, as it all is.
However...SATURDAY was a perfect garage sale day...and I'm wiggling in my chair to tell you my good luck! But...I will wait. This post is LONG enough......well..ok, ONE thing. :)
I have been searching for an oval footed tray for my silver tea set...and..
Saturday morning I found this one, all blackened, for just $2.00. I was concerned that the tarnish was beyond help..but..after a bit of elbow grease...it was just beautiful..
And would you just look at those adorable feetsies!! And...there's more. I'll share it with you tomorrow...ok?
Love and hugs and hope you had a nice weekend!
p.s. NO buyers remorse here!!
