Trinkets and Treasures…

I love to nest. For someone who has pretty much never spent more than a year in any one place I have become very adept at making my surroundings my own very quickly.

With that said, I’m always on a mission to de-clutter and simplify my life. Stuff smothers me. And even though I love vintage collectibles, I never buy anything that doesn’t have a use. Ornaments don’t really have a place in my home – evil dust gatherers – but I do love prints and pictures and am currently filling my walls with an assortment of images that make me smile.

My home reflects me, which means it’s not perfect. Some of it is a little confused, some of it not quite sorted, some of it is exactly the way the way I want it.

You might be wondering what’s the deal with the freaky jewellery hand stand…..it’s not exactly my style. It was actually getting chucked out by my neighbour and I’d been on the lookout for a stand so thought what the hey, I’ll make it work. It might’ve scared the bejeezus out of me the first night it sat on my dresser.

My belt hook has been with me for years, yeeeaaarrrrrssss. Seriously, since I was like fourteen. I like her.

Oh, and my scarves. My scarves! I’m a sucker for a pretty vintage scarf (you know that already) and I definitely do have too many so I’m considering popping a few on etsy. Speaking of which, I’m really happy with how my etsy shop is progressing – I need to urgently re-stock though……

    I am a declutterer too.. my husband and I had our first fight about we throwing away his ink pens which he never used. He didn’t even own ink.

    Gasp…she is absolutely gorgeous!
    So jealous of you right now, for 1 because I am someone who hates clutter but can’t seem to say no to cute little trinkets (everywhere), and for 2 because she is so gorgeous!
    Oh and I actually LOVE the hand 🙂
