Tablescapex3 Is Liquidating

Long Time, No Type

Greetings, Fellow Tablescapers!

Our collecting has taken us to another level. We have all relocated in the last two years, and we have bought and built and renovated and packed and moved a total of five times altogether. We have split the collection to its rightful owners. Diane started her own blog a few years ago, Confessions of the Obsessed: She hasn't posted since her new house went under constuction, but she is almost finished moving all of her china in. Our Emma is grown, and she has gone off to college. And we, Andrea and Steve, are now renovating their historic West Palm Beach property for living half the year and vacation rentals during the rest to begin in August 2017. It has been a labor of love. The pics will follow below.

In the mean time, Sans Souci has become a rental for professors and the dining collection has had to leave its happy home in the China Room at Sans Souci. We have also acquired a new mid-century modern home in Atlanta for part of the year, and the design does not permit such extravagant storage. Moreover, there is renovation to come there as well. Yay! and Awwww.... :(

The new Atlanta House: FiveLites

So....facing the exciting prospect of collecting houses instead of things to put in them, some china, crystal, and silver was sold and given away to Goodwill and friends over the last two years in preparation for the moves, but everything else is starting to go up on eBay under the seller name gamensagirl. These are items that I didn't feel would be well-placed in a donation pile; they are the remaining sought after antiques and collectibles: Lenox, Wedgwood, Spode, Waterford, etc. Please message me on eBay if you have any questions. If you are local to Atlanta, you are welcome to drop in to the Atlanta in-limbo rental and pick it up. I also have a free-standing gas stove in EUC that I am selling in Atlanta as well from the second kitchen which we are turning into an art studio. 10% of all sales will benefit homeless teens in Atlanta through Covenant House.

I really am selling it all except for the girls' silver. Even the Lismore.

If you are interested in vacationing in West Palm Beach, you can check out how our home Libertas started at the link below, though admittedly, this blog is behind since we also moved to Atlanta at roughly the same time.

We are in phase I of the project: renovating the main house. After two years of working with the historic board, etc., we will start with a home that sleeps 8:

2 bedrooms (queen beds)
2 sleeper sofas (queen mattresses)
2.5 baths
kitchen with bar seating area
dining room
(total seats 10+)
covered outdoor living porch area
large deck - 12' x 38'
garden/fire pit area
heated pool
one block from Howard Park and arts center
six blocks from intracoastal waterway, dining, antique shops, etc.
privacy fence
wide parking (2 cars)
privacy fence
quiet, historic neighborhood
open plan
lots of light, windows, French doors

In a few years we will renovate the separate garage into a 2-story guest house as part of phase 2.

I am posting the "from there to here" pictures below. We are painting this weekend. The furniture comes next week. The final outside work, landscaping, and reveal is in three weeks. If you are interested in Libertas as a vacation rental, please feel free to text 561-246-6400 to ask any questions and to get the property manager's information. These images below are in no particular order, but they show before, during, and up to last week progress. It has been an AMAZING project! My husband also writes some of our projects up on Hometalk, so you can check his explanations out there, too:


 Howard Park -220 feet from front door
Intracoastal Waterway - .8 mile, 13 minute walk
Dixie Highway, shopping, dining - .4 mile 7 minute walk
