Less is More~Dining Room Changes~

It's beginning to feel like fall here in Ga! The cool crisp air feels wonderful compared to the awful humid summer we had! Now we can enjoy doing more outdoor activities, like painting furniture, getting stuff out the storage buildings without dying of a heat stroke! More estate sales, auctions, etc.. I have been trying not to keep as much stuff as I have in the past....

Just keep what you absolutely love, you will know what to keep and what to sell. Listen to your heart! There are some things you just don't sell. The hard to find treasures! I love ironstone, alabaster, brown transferware, great primitives, french enamelware, old victorian mirrors, etc..

My dining room is one of my favorite rooms....I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of some of my collections. I love visiting all of my favorite bloggers and seeing what you like to keep!This last picture is what my dining room looked like one year ago this month!! Less is definitely more! Just so the rest of the stuff has a place to go! LOL My wedding cake topper collection made it's way to my cupboard in the bedroom, and I downsized my ironstone collection, and basically moved things around, and sold a lot of my pottery collection to make room for what I loved the most!

So tell me, What do you all think? I would love to hear from you, Is Less really more???
