Time to Let Go...

I've been gradually reducing the huge amount of STUFF in my garage. After I lost my studio last year, it became clear to me that hand-painting furniture just isn't the right art medium for just takes too much space, and we haven't had use of our garage for over a year. So, I've been donating a lot of my stuff to school silent auctions, people in need, and now, I'm about to put the rest of it  in my friend's community yard sale this Saturday. If it doesn't sell, it's going straight to charity.

Also, a dear, sweet friend of mine (my pretend grandma) was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's...her daughter is going through the tiresome and emotional task of clearing out her house and moving some stuff back to Florida for her mom; she asked me if I wanted some things to sell such as stacks of old cookbooks. I thought that I would include her things and some other items that were given to me in a separate area at the sale and any money I raise would go directly to the Alzheimer's, if you live in the area, be sure to stop this Saturday at our sale!

Here's the scoop:

The Meadows community yard sale Saturday, June 11th, from 8 am - Noon.    16 – 20 homes in “The Meadows” and “Great Meadows” neighborhoods.  Cross Streets are Balt/Ann Blvd and MeadowGate Drive, Annapolis, 21409.  From Hwy 50 take Hwy450 South exit toward Naval Academy.  Turn left on Severn Ridge Road EAST; Turn left on Balt/Ann Blvd; turn right on MeadowGate.  Follow signs. 
....I'll be located on Meadow Hill Drive! 

Don't forget to enter my giveaway at The DIY Club this month!

I need to clear some things out of my garage too but I'm still having a hard time letting it go!! Good luck at your garage sale and I hope you make a lot of $$ for the Alzheimer's Association.
