De-cluttering the shed...

We had a huge weekend started with the unusually sunny weather.
After the move we have continued further minimising our possessions as we know we have several more moves over the next few years. So it was time tackle the shed, where we had stored lots of goodies that were either too loved or was too much work at the time we moved. We are now a lot more ready to part with them. So this is what is on eBay at the moment.

My beautiful outdoor table is going .  I use this as my eBay photography prop table. So sad, but we really need this area for the kids to play in, so we need to clear some space.

The evolution our green entry table...

This is my most loved item of furniture that I own. My sister and I found it one day in about 2005, on the footpath, waiting to be thrown out. It did not look like this, it was covered in contact. But we could see the gorgeous green legs and knew it would be amazing. I sanded and varnished the top and just lightly sanded the green paint, then waxed it and put on new emerald green glass handles that I found for $5.00 each on sale at a little gift shop in Noosa, what luck!

Here have a look at how this table has evolved with us over the years.

 I don't think I would ever part with it.

White retro art deco style...

My latest item for sale on eBay at the moment. We have been using this gorgeous table as a lamp table in the lounge, but it's time to make way for more items from our shed.

The magic of Mushrooms...

I love the look of Mushrooms, for a woodland fairy type party theme.
For Evie's tiny party, I bought little pink mushroom lollies.

The take home party favour table was like a mini lolly shop, each guest could choose 1 lolly jar, a lolly pop, a tiny yo yo and a toy. Everyone loved it. The pink mushroom lollies on the far left, were a popular choice.

 I am looking for a few ideas on Pinterest of how else to make sweet little mushrooms. They could be made from spiced biscuits, meringue, cupcakes, cookies.
What do you think is the nicest?
