Just a little floofing...

Since cleaning the old lakehouse, and getting things ready for the coming Spring, I moved a few things around.
I boxed up so much "stuff", yet still seem to have a lot of things that needed floofing.

One of my favorite "things" in the lakehouse is the "guest cottage" sign I ordered from Paula at Castle and Cottage when I first started blogging.

I got the silverware idea from Sarah, at a Beach Cottage, almost two years ago.  I've seen it on several blogs since, and still enjoy it.

A little grouping of milk, and cream bottles with some beaded serving spoons.

Some sweet vintage hand towels.
I tried to de-clutter by boxing things up, and sending them to St. Vinnie's.
Yet, I look around, and realize how much "stuff" there still is around here.
Oh well, we still have a few more weeks of winter. That gives me more time to box up a few more things.
If I look real hard, I'm sure I can find something.


  1. Oh Debbie....I know what you mean. I keep trying to weed out things, and I just feel like I don't get anywhere. If I declutter, I find other things to put in their place. But I keep trying.
    Your treasures are wonderful....

  2. I have so much that needs to get boxed around here, too! Need to find a place for it to go. I sure don't want to work with some of it anymore at all. Love all your pretty little things...used to play with the silver ware and jars in the antique mall. Miss those days, when I could switch things up there and not mess with it here so much.
    Have a great weekend, sweet girl. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers- Tete

  3. I so need to do what you are doing, Debbie. I have SO MUCH stuff that I need to get rid of. We are probably going to put the house on the market in late Spring and that means I need to get a move on soon. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xo Diana

  4. I need to do a major 'boxing up' myself Debbie. 'Stuff' seems to be caving in on me lately. Yep...I think another month of Winter is just what I need : )

  5. guy and I have done so much boxing up and hauling off in the past two months. I can't believe all that stuff fit in our home!

    I love floofing! :) FLOOF! FLOOF! FLOOF! :) :) :)


  6. You're FLOOFING! lol! Hmmmm....where have I heard that before....? lol! I tell ya, once our lake house sells, I'm having one giant barn sale over here. I can hardly wait to get rid of some stuff. Some of it just may end up at in our booth at the Flea this spring! :) I love the way your vignettes turn out, sis. They're always so perfect! ♥

    xoxo laurie

  7. I've been taking boxes to the GW every week, all the less we have to pack up when we move back home! Though I love it out here so much now, I get sad just thinking of leaving! Love your vignettes, always do:)

  8. You have a lot of lovely things. The sign i so nice. I have a small "fredags kul" and you and your friends are welcome.

    Have a nice weekend.

  9. Love the guest cottage brings back the old days at the lake for me.
    Hugs and have a great weekend,
