I think the worst thing is that I don't miss any of it. None of it was all that useful and while many things were quite beautiful, they were just things to "decorate" a space. I also looked at how much money I really "lost" and how many hours I had worked to purchase items I really didn't care about just to decorate a space. Let's just say I wanted to puke when I did the math!!!
After that day, I made a promise to myself that I would no longer have anything in my home that I did not feel to be useful or beautiful. I would take my time and find things that I would never dream of putting in a yard sale. For me, that mostly means handmade items, art and rabbits. It is also why I promised myself this would be a handmade year and the gifts I give have to be made by me or made by another artist.
The Qi Papers, posted these beautiful Year of the Rabbit postcards in her Etsy shop, I knew I had to have them! They are not only beautiful, but they are useful too! I decided to
for sale in her Shop. They come beautifully wrapped and include information on what the art represents (I loved that part!) She also has four bunnies you can visit with on her blog. Tell her Shell and the bunnies said Hi!
