  1. I’m envious, Karen! I wish we could fit our vehicle in too…maybe before the snow flies. hmmm. Keep up the good work!

    Manny’s got some nice abs.

  3. Kathy Nielsen says:

    Geez Karen, I thought only my garage looked like yours. I can barely fit my jeep into mine and at that I have to maneuver to the right slightly or I can’t get my door open.

  4. PS MacMurray says:

    Always good to hear you talk trash! An idea: A project with neighbors. They come to your place and pick one of the items you want out by December 31 and take it home. They have a month to transform it and gift it, or keep it. You document their progress. A contest of sorts, perhaps. I am certain you have tons of ideas of your own!

  5. Susan G says:

    Wow you fit your Van in, awesome! I am having Emma over next week to transform mine. Do you want before and after pic’s? LOL

  6. I need that mid century sofa – and Manny is calling out to be hot pink

  7. Jayne says:

    I just love that mid-century sofa, it’s a stunner! Great job on the garage, I wish I could fit my car in mine 😉

  8. Well, once again, I love your blog. But….. don’t worry, I don’t have any place nor reason to bring home anything……. except groceries and the newspaper! We have fully retired since closing Carol’s Cottage Place, moved from our 2 story 3 bedroom full basement home into a Senior Residence Apt. of 550 Sq. ft.
    Ha. Ha. Of course we left a housefull of ‘stuff’ that wouldn’t fit and decided we really didn’t need it for survival either, hired a liquidator and she is presently getting it ready for a huge 4 day sale the last of October. Then we will touch up some painted walls and have the carpet cleaned, and maybe rake the leaves (in Kansas, they start falling early and continue, continue continue) too. So today, I am catching up on reading my email as we didn’t have internet for 5 days! We have a perfectly CLEAN 550 sq. ft and all the furnishings have been polished with Pledge or washed clean with 409. The clothes in the one shared closet (my husband and me) are entirely too many and tight on the rods until we can’t really get a change of clothes decided on or pulled out! So I’m sure some of that will go back to the old house and be sold in the Sale, also. Pictrues are all up on the wall. Towels are rolled and in place in the bathroom in a nice new storage cabinet that fits perfectly and chicken and broth (from our freezer at the house) is thawing in the kitchen. The things we had in the large chest freezer in the basement were also removed and divided among many neighbors etc. My husband always insisted to keep a small stash of cash ‘in case of an emergency’, and he packed that to move, and we haven’t found it yet, so we don’t need to shop for anything that we don’t need anyway! We are both well, happy, listening to countless Gospel CD’s playing and relaxing! Watching the other old folks toddling on the sidewalk outside and then planning what function we might attend on the calendar in the ‘meeting room’ later. But, you know I can help but read the blogs that I learned so much from in years gone by. Do keep them coming, as you know you have one very faithful reader!!!!! Carol

  9. oh gosh… after reading this I realize I shouldn’t have showed you the picture of the back of my truck today. I just feel so liberated after clearing out the garage. Today’s shopping binge was more about distracting my mind from the pain of 3 ribs being out (better than eating cookies)

    I am a newbie with you and I love your site. I have been doing this for years… but who needs a therapist. When I get down I get out of the house and hunt. It is great isn’t it. I do want to give you a heads-up. I clicked on the site you have that is written in red, A-Z Custom Creations, to look around. When the page opened it was a site I have never been, and written in a language I have never seen. It’s set off My virus protection with all the bells and whistles. Thats why I pay the big bucks for mine. Just a FYI and let them know too, please. Off to see you on YouTube.
    Good Hunting…
