lightening my load

Letting go of objects and possessions we love is almost as hard as letting go of people we love. I’m sure most of you know the feeling of being overwhelmed by things that begin piling up in your home. Clothing that you never wear anymore. Books that you do not read. Collectibles that you’ve got stored in boxes in the basement. I’ve decided to lighten my load. I’ve created an online tag sale that is meant to have the flavor of a trash and treasure antiques barn you might come across in your wanderings. Some higher priced items and some things under $10.  I’ll be updating it continually with stuff as I go through my household.

In addition, I’ll be uploading some of my art work, some of Scott’s, and some of others we’ve both collected over the years. Things that have inspired both of us and hopefully will inspire you, too.

Go shopping now at my Art Barn Shop at Etsy. You might find something unusual for yourself or your loved ones for the holiday gift giving season!

Here are some of the items you will find at the Art Barn Shop on Etsy. Artist’s Nude Model Hand Painted Silk Tie. Vintage 1940’s or early 50’s :

  1. Katy – such a shame no shipping to the UK, I would have loved the sea kayaking books, we are going sea kayaking in February in Tulum. In the tradition of seizing the day and trying something different on Scott’s and mines shared Birthday, which has now become a bit of a tradition in honour of Scott each year, whilst having a whole heap of fun and laughter. The first year it was snorkelling in the bat cave cenote, then this year it was swimming in the mangroves and crocodile & manatee spotting 🙂


  2. Hi Vicki– Your trip sounds wonderful!

    Well I could consider doing it. It’s mostly a matter of my convenience in not having to fill out all of the rigamarole on Etsy etc. It would mean me knowing the weight and cost of shipping the books to you which takes effort and energy on my part.


  3. When I went to the Gurdjieff School at Claymont in Charles Town West Virginia it was suggested to let go of our prized possessions (circa 1980). I had dozens of psychology books including my favorites by RD Laing, one was signed by him too. I sold them all. The good news about material objects are their memories – I am attached to those.

    Now I am working on letting go of the attachments… ( but ever-so-slowly)
