I've decided my decorating style in my home is called, "Homey Memories."
There have been times when I've been and seen other homes that are impressive
and think I must purge more.
I've gotten down to the items that have a LOT of memories.
Everything once belonged to family like my grand parents, parents, children, uncles, aunts and such,
or was given to me as a gift especially from Mr. G,
or acquired on special trips especially long road yard sales with Mr. G.
My house is a museum to me.
Just when I wonder if it's cluttered too much,
someone like the HVAC Maintenance guy walks through the house,
stops and says,
"I like the homey feel of your house."
I tell him I think it's cluttered and he says,
"Oh no, you have everything arranged to make a person stop and look and wonder."
Then I realize once again, "That was my goal."
Do you decorate to impress someone else or yourself?
"THINK about it."
Nothing in the picture above was bought on a shopping trip for decorating.
