Adel's annual city-wide garage sale is this Saturday and we decided we had enough stuff to participate in it. You can find us near the XX from 8 to 4 this Saturday. I'm still sifting through boxes and getting things priced like this pretty tea set. I have several other pieces of china--both new and vintage--ready for the sale. We will have new and old housewares, home decor, garden fountains, accent tables, collectibles, holiday decor, cookbooks and garden books, Wardian cases, and much more.

These garden fountains served us well over the years.

I used to love collecting the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks but it's time to part with them. I only kept a few of them. 

I always thought I would find a place for this chandelier but it's just not large enough for our rooms with their lofty ceilings. It even comes with four shades.

And I found a bunch of holiday decor items that I no longer use like this collectible Bethany Lowe old-world Santa. Perhaps he will find a home on Saturday!

And we're still looking for a good home for our antique piano that is sadly no longer tunable but its beauty remains. I fell in love with its craftsmanship and if I had the room, I would keep it as a decorative piece. 

If I have time before the sale, I might post more photos here.
