best of: collect not clutter.

i’m feeling much more zen today, so thank you for all the positive comments yesterday — i was way down there in those dumps! but what also makes me feel better, besides your trusty companionship here on the blog, is cleaning out the cobwebs — literally and figuratively. i’ve been sorting through my belongings and trying to declutter – a lot! it’s a difficult task for me, because i love collecting lovely things, but one can only own so many beautiful objects and those we do own should be sentimental and shared lovingly — maybe in a special display case or a prominently on a shelf for all to gander. they should also be displayed in a cohesive collection as to not look cluttered — “like objects” with their mates, so to speak. i think these images give us a great example to live up to. collections so pretty, but not in the least bit cluttered, so on with my purge!
