Can She Do It?





Time to think about the New Year's resolutions? Nah.I don't have any resolutions...I never keep them or else I make them too outrageous and unreachable. How about trying to be calm and happy and clutter controlled...I mean control my clutter. Yeah right..."In my mind"..as I always have said and have been kidded about saying that phrase..I want to put everything away and have table tops that you can 'lay'on. When I go to one particular friend's house...her table and dresser tops are clear as an icy reflective pond...I run up to them and lay my torso across the spans between a vase and a lamp. Such freedom I feel doing that. I tried it at home. Took me a half an hour just to remove the stuff so I could see the spans! Maybe the magic will work after January 1. Yeah, that might do it..... Is there a rule about keeping up the New Year's resolution through out the year? This might be one of those unreachable goals...I'll try it and let you know.

Funny thing we have in common Bach...our house has also been called a museum! One person called it Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.
What's wrong with these people? hahahaha

We're like clutter sisters..I am exactly the same way! I've just decided to surrender to it, embrace it1 I've found that bins/baskets can help keep the appearance of tidiness, while maintaining the joy of clutter!

All the best to you in the new year!

Cheers!

'lay' on.... it's a funny (mind) sight for sure... but what a great plan too...

I feel a certain amount of comfort in my clutter, like Mary Kate Danaher having her things about her.

I don't make New Year's resolutions either!

Happy 2011!

I love that movie The Quiet Man, Tess! I think of her saying that alot actually. Your photos of the Manor don't look too cluttered...

I've tried everything for this one! Repeatedly saying- please keep the counter/table clear! I even tried putting a vase of flowers in the middle but no...my family see a clear surface and they want to drop something on it! Let me know how you get on!

Warm and woolly wishes for 2011, to you and yours, Kim! xx
