So I threw out, I boxed up, I took away stuff I would never use, didn't like, and didn't need. And I only brought things out of the attic that I wanted to take its place. And I'm happy with the result! I can appreciate other people's dramatic and abundant decorating style, but that doesn't feel right for me.
I will continue to de-clutter, give away, and simplify, because that makes me feel good, but today I am enjoying the work of yesterday.
