Knick Knack Lady
Several years ago my dear husband called me this! Of course I didn’t understand it. Now a bit wiser, I can’t deny this description! I just bought another knick knack! This is after a lot of decluttering recently with a car load of stuff taken to good will. Go figure!
A few weeks ago I got to see a friends condo. She has an apple orchard mid state. She comes here regularly to get away from a very busy life style. She has a lovely condo. So pleasant and decorated beautifully. No clutter or knick knacks. So peaceful! Her furniture was top quality mostly from pottery barn.
I told her I now wanted to give away everything I owned that “decorated” my condo, all my knick knacks! She came to see my home and noted that I love Mary Engelbright. She had the wisdom to let me know, our home just expresses what we are. It is our home! She reminded me Mary E., how a few years ago she tried to get rid of her knick knacks and just had to come back to her love of collecting.
Well, like I said, I bought another knick knack. I don’t good will shop or intentionally collect like I did in the past, but….this was a necessary purchase.
My friend told me this place was her get away. Her home mid state was very cluttered. Her kitchen wall was like a scrap book full of pictures. Many things everywhere. What a dear. I would like to see that home of hers as well.
I think my knick knacks are really my story. Everything I display is something that has sentimental value with sweet memorys. My knick knacks are like embellishments. My home truly is MY LIVING SCRAP BOOK…FULL OF STORY.
I am a knick knack lady!
