Hello! How are you? How is the New Year treating you? Did you make lots of resolutions? Yes, too many or no? Without sounding preachy, may I suggest a resolution? How about loving your home, as it is? Not how you would like it to be, but as it is, right now. A lot of times I find myself thinking, just add that one vase/lantern/painting/chair/table/wall/room(s) (substitute for whatever your craving is), and the house would be perfect. Maybe its great already and what I really need to add/change is myself.
Sure, I love moving furniture and other tchotchkes around and giving everything a fresh look. And that is a lot of fun. But I am talking about a quest for magazine-perfection. Are you always striving to make it look 'perfect'? Does this sound like a lot of pop psychology or does this sound familiar? Get your cup of tea (or your favorite whatever) and join in the conversation. I would love to hear from you.
