As you probably realise,we don't do minimal in our house.Sentimental things are crammed into drawers until I feel like going through them. The time feels right to just keep special bits, and through inpiration on the internet, I have an idea of how to tackle the mountain.
I find the most difficult thing to go through are the childrens artwork and scribblings.
How do other people deal with the tide of things?
The above picture is in the book 'Ethnic Style' by Miranda Innes, and shows a 'shrine to family history'. I like this idea as a way of appreciating the fragments of history I have tucked away.
I have also been inspired by Dottie Angel's 'bits and bobs' wall below, I love this with my magpie tendencies.
I have my eye on a wall in our front room. Oh! I'm now informed it's for a large picture, and my 'bits' will have to go in the little studio. So be it!
I'll keep you posted, I have a few days off!!
I recently found a really cute donkey embroidery, and so had to put it in a heart!
It's in my Folksy shop now!
