…not a yardsale, just my front yard

My pastor gives short radio sermons called “Not a sermon. Just a thought.” You may have heard Lon Solomon on your radio before. As I walked out to my yard to see what my mover dropped off (after much ado) I can’t help but be a bit nervous that a)my hoarder neighbor will come take pieces or  b) people will slow down wondering about the yard sale.

Not a yard sale. Just my front yard.












I’ve turned into a crazy picker these last few weeks as i gear up for my space at Lucketts. I am probably going a bit overboard as every room in my house is going to be filled soon. Never the less, needing to get rid of stuff – vintage & antiques? email me: cbensten@blueeggbrownnest.com

And not to be overshadowed, kindergarten orientation happened an hour ago. It was a Xanex kind of morning for Mommy.



  1. I’d be kind of nervous myself..Have you considered maybe renting a space nearby? Sort of like Stylish Patina warehouse..Just big enough to safely store your pieces. Good luck in your new adventure!

    Love your work! Would live to see before and after pics!

  3. This Looks Like My Backyard!!
    I can never pass up a great deal!! Or something that I might be able to recycle, one day.

  4. I love how the grain of the oak pieces stands out in black &white photos. I very much enjoy following you and your work!

  5. Looking forward to so much!

  6. Christen!
    He is your twin! What a beautiful smile!

    Hi Christen
    I can’t wait to see what you do with all the pieces. I wished my movers (if I had them) dropped off all this furniture to paint in front lawn. Yah more video’s to learn from as well!!

  8. I can’t tell you how big I smiled when I saw this post! I just
    Finished a huge vintage fair and for months my driveway looked
    like a constant yard sale! I still work out of my garage and paint in
    my driveway. I admire all the work you do and it makes me so happy to see
    happy to see that you do too! Thanks for sharing!
