For example I love to rescue lamps with great intentions of updating them with a new lucite base, lampshade or a set of new wires.
Alas they sit and they sit. Great intention turn into clutter of my space and of my brain.
That is why this year I resolve to finish things I start which means I have to simplify, focus, be disciplined & prioritize. Ever heard the saying quality over quantity...well I think that just may be one of the motto's this year.
Just to prove that I am serious about this I have just purchased a set of very beautiful, heavy, solid and not so cheap lamps. It was a very hard purchase for me to make but you know what... they have a space in my home instead of creating clutter. I don't have to fix them which has in turn simplified my life....see the new motto is already working.
Do you like how I am selling this purchase on myself? Oh why must I love lamps, chairs, linens, artwork, vases, mirrors & pillows SO much? Perhaps I should have saved this post for April Fool's Day so that I would have a way out. I mean what do I do next time I see one of those sculptural beauties with curves or with straight lines.
So just to review:
FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS
Quality over quantity.
Simplify even more.
Finish projects that I start.
Now anybody want to go thrifting:-)?
I think I may have ADD.
Have a great weekend!
