Just in Time for the HOLIDAYS!!

I have so much to do and so much to sell. So many of my things would be perfect for those people who need more stuff to spruce up for the upcoming holidays. I just put the most wonderful set of vintage silver plate flatware from 1847 Rogers, named Sylvia into my Etsy store, Shefindsthings.
You can go to my store and BUY IT!!!

Or how about my beautiful vintage etched crystal in my EBay store, Shefindsthings at Nostalgia.
And then, there is always my vintage bedroom furniture set on Etsy. You can buy parts or the whole set at: Shefindsthings at Etsy.

More Furniture for Sale! Six Vintage Parson Upholstered Dining Room Chairs

I am still trying to downsize and replace some items. So, we have more stuff to sell before we move. So far I have listed an all wood 7 piece bedroom set for $1000, described in a previous post on this blog. NOW, I have 6 beautiful Parson style upholstered dining room chairs to sell.

Come and get this fabulous set of 6 vintage upholstered Parson dining room chairs from the 1970s. They are mine. THE TABLE IS NOT INCLUDED. We are moving and will be having a different look at the new house. These cost plenty when new. Condition is very good, but the seats are a little soft and there are some top corner edges that are worn. You may want to replace the cushions under the fabric with new foam? or whatever they use these days. Sooo....since you are all wonderfully talented, I bet that you can make them your own! Each chair measures 38" high, 19" deep and 19" wide. The seat height is 19" from the floor. There are 13 1/2" walnut colored wood legs that are part of the 38" height measurement. Fabric is a chenille of beige with rust and tan...very neutral. $500 for ALL SIX!

We are in Stamford, CT. These are for PICK UP ONLY! There is no help here. Do email for details!

Our current, wonderful, house is three levels and we are both having trouble with all the stairs. We need a mostly one level ranch style...much better for both of us. SOOOOOO, I need to destash. We already had a moving sale which was not very successful. I donated tons of stuff to the Vietnam Vets, a Rehab Center Thrift Store and to Goodwill.

BUY MY CURRENT HOUSE!!! Anyone for Stamford, CT with woods and pond with deer, rabbits, geese, wild turkey, ducks, pheasant, chipmunks, birds of all kinds, squirrels, etc. Our backyard is like a park!

We also have some bedroom furniture to sell before we move. Check out the picture above. This is a 7 piece set. Email for detailed info.

So, I think that you all need to go and look at my online stores and make fair offers on some of my merchandise. PLEASE DO!!!

Let's Vote on All Things That You Have Seen Done Two Ways...Both Seemingly Correct...At the Time!

I was busy reading all those humorous emails that people send me. I don't know why, but for some reason, today was an extremely big day for those. As I was chuckling about some of these, one of them reminded me that you can always see both sides of the coin as being correct on any particular day.

Let's take a tally of your amusing both side stories. Here's mine...it sort of has 3 sides:

Your child wakes up with a cold. He doesn't seem that bad to you. You figure that he can't afford to miss school. You know that he will drive you crazy if he stays home. He will watch too much television for your likings...or he will be on the computer chatting too long for your comfort level....or he will be playing too many computer games. SO YOU SEND HIM TO SCHOOL without ever worrying about who he will make sick.

Your student walks into your classroom sneezing his head off. He is obviously sick...perhaps not very...but ...You know that you will catch it...you know that the other kids will catch it...you know that everyone is going to end up sick and the parents of the other students will be mad at you if you don't send the sick student home. You think that his parents are awful and don't care about him. You are unmarried and cannot imagine how insensitive a parent can be to send a sick student to school.

You used to be a teacher, before you had kids, and your child wakes up with a cold. He doesn't seem that bad to you...etc, etc, etc.
