What have you racked up lately?

Hi Cuties.  I'm so glad that you stopped by to see me today.
There is a promise of sunshine and Gabby is taking advantage...
I have a question for you.....what have you racked up today?
On your french bottle rack that is.....

Do you fill it up with iron stone or transferware  or silver or what????

I've been busy packing a few things for our move south.  We are just taking enough to fill up the town house and leaving most of the big stuff at our house here.  So, I'm trying to decide what stays and what goes....oh woes is me!
My bottle rack has definitely got to go with me!

Probably can't leave my chalkboard behind....or my vintage bottle carrier, or my ironstone, or my mirrors....or my mercury glass...
Mr. Sissie is going to kill me!

That's it in my neck of the woods.  I'm off to the flea market with Sista today.

Get out there this week and create, make, sew, photograph, write, cook, bake, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with all of us.

I have always admired these and have almost bought one several times on Decor Steals, but then I think, do I really want more stuff on my counter and that keeps me from buying. But I still admire them...just from afar.

So hard to decide what to take or leave. It was like that for us when we inherited a houseful of furniture and all the rest. We just couldn't leave some things for the charity auction, so we now have things in storage and filling our attic.

I love how you have filled your bottle rack...I've always wanted one but didn't want to just use bottles. This is so pretty. And so is the the kitty by the window!

Have a great day with your sister!

Gabby's such a pretty kitty! I agree with Brrr... I'm playing in the kitchen today and keep feeding the wood stove. Happy Weekend Sissie:@)

Thought u moved into another house. I have a bottle rack, up in attic right now.

Jocelyne said...

Wow love the rack! I like it filled with the ironstone. It would be just lovely filled with red and white transferware too.

Claudia said...

Gosh, I wish I had a French bottle rack! I don't think I have enough counter space for one and I have a sneaking suspicion that Don would open a cupboard door and knock it over. I love them, though!


Debbie said...

I don't know how you decide what stays and what goes, Sissie.
Have fun at the flea market!!!

Melissa Bishop said...

I do not have a French bottle rack and clearly I am missing out!

I'm embarassed to say I haven't added anything to mine yet. I got it from Decor Steals a few weeks ago and I've been very bad with adding to it. =(


Victoria said...

Oh gosh Sissie, I would say take only what you absolutely love!!! When we moved to Florida (for the 2nd time) in May I brought way too much stuff which is now sitting in a closet:( I really wish I'd been more picky about my nick knacks! My advice would be to envision in your head where you're going to put it and if you can't then leave it for now.

But I agree, the rack is a must!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That is an amazing bottle rack!! I know how hard it is to only take what is important because so much is!! You can do it! Hugs, Linda

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Poor Mr Sissy, why I couldn't possibly choose what to pack and what to leave...It would be like Sophies choice!!


Gail said...

I have one but I'm letting my daughter-in-law use mine. I didn't have the space for it:( Yours is beautiful! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, Gail

Cindy said...

Hey cutie pie! i bet is hard to decide what to take!!! but i do know this... wherever you go, you'll make it as charming as can be!

Love your quandary. I can see how it's a hard choice!

I have a bottle rack like that. I'll have to pull it out. I haven't used it in a bit.
