auction ephemera bits and good morning





Good Morning Good Looking!
Do I look kind of scary here? OMG the more I look at that picture the more I'm askeered of myself. It's like I'm trying to shoot death lasers out my eyeballs. Sor-ry. But I don't think I'm going to delete it. Is that terrible sadistic?
The other pictures are a little spooky, too. My living room is not a creepy place but there isn't a ton of natural light so pictures turn out dark. And when the subject matter is a little macabre well then....
These ephemera bits are from the auction last week. There's a little landscape oil on pressed board, a baby picture with some decorative flourishes and a drawing of a young victorian lady. And here's the problem I'm having. When you decide to sell vintage and decide you only want to sell vintage you'd have in your own home well then, you kind of want to keep it in your own home. And not sell it. Hm....

an ongoing dilemma for sure. but i find if i live with them for a little, it suffices and before too long, they've made it into the shop with nary a second thought

You look good in the picture, watcha talkin' about?

Put the electricity bill to the left of the oil painting and the cable bill to the right of the vintage baby picture on your beautiful primitive shelf. The motivation to sell will suddenly come back :)

Yes, it can be a problem :) Like the others I usually move onto something else and end up selling something after awhile. There have only been a couple of items I really regret selliing and they were, for the most part, books.

I am most definitely NOT askeered! With those GORGEOUS eyes? No way, Jose! Have I mentioned that I LOVE my bench cushion you made me? And am definitely blogging about it this thur or fri. I could see how that would be a problem...you are the vintage master...hm....

Love your picture actually you look relaxed!, I love auctions too I used to go all the time and had boxes and boxes of vintage goodies and yes it is a dilemma to try and re-sell, but you go through stages of liking different things from different time periods.

Aw, I think you have beautiful eyes! You're a nut.

Anyway, exactly what Karen said up there. And I have a closet full of boxes (of really cool stuff) to prove it. Just tell yourself your borrowing it for a while.
