Inspired by Hoarding

Ya ever watch the show Hoarders...Buried Alive? I recently have caught a few episodes and while half the time it can leave me feeling a bit depressed the rest of the time I have the urge to run around throwing things away.
A couple weeks ago (after watching one of the above mentioned episodes) I came to terms with the fact that I really have too much stuff packed into the much smaller space I moved into last year. It's not that I'm really attached to this stuff (I know you're thinking I'm in denial) but I just have been so overwhelmed to go through it all and make decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of. So this past weekend I decided to buckle down and just do it... one corner down...

Three more corners and two more rooms to go...I still have sooooo much stuff!!! I hear "Garage Sale" in my near future.

admitting that you have a problem is the first step haha J/K ofcourse. The corner looks lovely...and yes, that show has the same effect on me!

Just found your lovely blog and am having fun looking around. This post is sooo me right now - except I live too far out for a good yard sale... sigh Oh well - maybe I'll "recycle" at the Thrift store - problem is I always bring home as much as I drop off! ;-) Your place is beautiful. Thanks for sharing,

I'm in collection mode at the moment. I recently moved into a bungalow built in 1921, so I'm trying to find fun vintage goodies to fill up all my empty spaces.

Love your blog and I'll be back for sure!
