It was interesting to see how the people furnished and decorated the spaces.
Most, if not all of them, had:
- a grandfather clock
- smallish kitchens
- furniture of all styles and periods mixed together
- a print--A View of Winchester
- formal dining rooms
- original paintings
- beautiful drapes
The houses were also filled with items of meaning--things the owners had clearly picked because they loved them, and they were interesting items even though, in many cases, they didn't match.
Food for thought as I look around our house.
Fill your house and life with people and things you love and bring you joy and have meaning--get rid of the rest.
Now off to the storage room....
