Falling off the wagon

I have a confession to make. I have been posing on blogger as a quilter. I do enjoy sewing and hope to one day actually finish one of the many quilting projects I have started. This weekend while I was nursing a summer cold I stumbled upon a blog called Vintage Rescue Squad. I spent most of two days reading the entire blog and several other blogs she linked. I made an amazing discovery I AM NOT A Freak.....junkaholics abound and are airing their curbside finds and thrift store treasures in numerous blogs. I am a long time junker,past antique shop owner,major ebayer,auction ticket writer,antique mall space renter,estate seller...well you get the picture. A few years ago I became fed up with ebay and the potential for junk sales dried up in eastern NC, so I swore off junk. I promised myself I wouldn't buy new junk until I got rid of all the stuff in my house and garage. I have pretty much just closed my eyes to the piles of stuff everywhere. I still hit the thrift stores but swore off all yardsales and auctions. I am thinking of opening an etsy shop and going to force myself to start getting ready for a big autumn yard sale, this is huge since I absolutely hate having yardsales and dealing with the local yardsalers!

Gee whiz! This looks pretty familiar ... we just got done cleaning out our 'stashes'. Felt good doing so. TTFN ~ Marydon

Wow, sounds like you have been doing a lot of soul searching :-) I'm sure you are still a quilter at heart. We all share our "treasure" finds here.
