Is it Decor
I love looking at decorating pictures. It pretty much doesn't matter whether the style is Shabby Chic, Country, French Country, Traditional, Victorian, Country Victorian, and on and on. My problem is, I love it all.
But as I've gotten older and have decided to scale back on the volume of my "stuff", there has been a subtle shift in my thinking.
While I can appreciate the lovely picture on the right, my common sense also tells me that the goodies artfully arranged on the mantle and side dresser scream one word - dust.
I inherited my love of "stuff" from my father, who loved and collected antiques. It is a constant battle to not bring more "stuff" into my home while in the process of moving "stuff" out of my home.
I've found the surefire way to do this. I find "stuff" that I think is really cool, refurbish or redesign it, and pass it on to others. This way I earn a bit of pin money, have fun, and get to enjoy "stuff" as it passes through my home.
