Another lovely day on the mountain....

Well another beautiful day on Tamborine Mountain.  A few degrees cooler than in the valley, thank goodness.  The gardens are flourishing, not only ours but all around us and we don't even have to water much as the overnight dew takes care of things.  Which is a good thing as we are on tank water.

Now that we have been here a couple of months and we are settling in, I know I keep saying that, but I feel until every last storage box is emptied and every last piece of bric a brac has found a new home (either with us or with someone else) I won't be really settled.

Just a fraction of what we have to part with.

I don't even remember what is in these boxes.

Check out what I have already listed on Ebay here at Mugwhys Vintage.

Nicky Likes her new home and so do we!

Well we have been at our new home for just over 2 months now and the dogs are settling in.  Nicky is 14 years old and we were worried that the move might upset her as she has only known the one home.  Thankfully all is well and she seems to be thriving.

Let the downsizing begin......

Well here we are nearly 3 years after we decided to move and downsize, in our new beautiful home.  Now the work really begins.  I wasn't sure how much "stuff" we could fit in the new, much smaller, house so I took it all with us.  A lot has found a new spot but oh sooooooo much has to go.

I have dozens of storage boxes so as I open them I will list whatever doesn't fit in the new house on Ebay here.

Today's treasure finds..... I'm keeping at least one piece!

Well it has been sometime since I last went "op shopping" and after today's finds I question why I stayed away for so long.  It has certainly wetted my appetite to find more bargains/treasures.  I would say about half of the things are going to wind up in my Etsy shop in one form or another. I am going to make house pants out of the single bed sheets, put a couple of pages from an old book in the frames and maybe keep the beautiful Pyrex dish (green is my colour after all), but I am sooooooo definitely keeping the art glass.  It has already found its place in the lounge room.
