So anyway, back to inexpensive Vintage Carnival Kitsch I've been a virtual magnet to Sourcing inexpensively lately... here's two more I got not too long ago on the cheap. The Kewpie was a Goodwill Hunting Score and the little Unicorn I Saved from a Garbage lot, I kid you not, it was in some items that were going to be tossed so I Rescued it! There's nothing wrong with it, no damage at all... and who doesn't Love Unicorn Kitsch, right? *Winks*
And FINALLY, after almost Three years empty, I'm filling the rest of my Display Cabinets!!!!! *Gasp!* Yep, it's True, I almost cannot Believe I kept anything empty that long either... but I did and I have!!! The bottom of this Cabinet is STILL empty but at least now the top has some of my Treasures Displayed in it! This entire matching set of Antique China, that I just LOVE the Hand Paintings and Hues of, I Sourced whilst Goodwill Hunting for a Buck each on Senior Day. You almost never find large sets of matching Antique China like this and I didn't mind it was just all one size of Plate and a single Shaker because that's all I had room for in this Cabinet's Top anyway to Display.
We do use all of our Vintage Kitchenware items every day, some more than others, this set will be displayed rather than used just so they don't have damage and wear to the Beautiful Hand-Painted Floral Decoration. So, I went about the business of finding what else I wanted to Showcase in the upper portion of this Display Cabinet, now that I finally quit procrastinating on putting anything in there at all!?! It's not that I didn't have anything to put on display, but I've been Culling and Curating like a Mad Woman, so a lot of items have been Let Go of since we moved in and only the True Keepers will end up having a semi-permanent place to be seen.
I have also been Letting Go of some really Nice items and so I wanted to be certain anything coming INTO the house and put on display was actually not going to be hawked!?! It COULD be later on, but for now, if it came IN and got put on Display, well, it's a Keeper for the time being anyway. *LOL* It languished around in Limbo for almost Three years while I decided anyway, as I have previous said, this Purging Process I'm going thru to attempt to Simplify Life and Cull the Hoard of Lovelies I've amassed over a Lifetime does take some Time and Careful Consideration sometimes. Other times I can be very unsentimental and unattached that I can go thru it all expediently, depends upon my Mood and level of Ambition or Irritation at having Too Much??!??? *Bwahahahahaa!*
Yeah, I'll probably always have an inclination to having Too Much, since my Passion and Thrill of being a Hunter and Gatherer knows no bounds and I'm not giving THAT up. I Enjoy it far too much to Stop... and why should I? Seeking Found Treasures, Rescuing and Creating things is such a Rush and my Natural High. I can spend hours doing any of it and totally Lose myself in the Process of Creating or Hunting and Salvaging. When you Find your Happy Place like that there is no real reason to cease and desist. *Winks*
Besides, look how Great it all can look once you finally get Organized and Motivated enough to get off your arse and properly find a place to Display it! A place that was empty for so long you shocked everyone who knows you since that is so Out of Character for you to leave any space void and empty! *LMAO*
