See & Saw. Hee & Haw. Ohhh & Ahhh. This blog is an ever-growing collection of curios, oddities, and astonishing visual treats. Honest.
so, is the moral of the story to let all your trash pile up and see if it casts a neat shadow? seeing how messy some of my bosses' offices are, i just need to get the lighting correct! ;o)
Hi All! lbean: Maybe this is an illustration of "one man's junk is another man's treasure."Not sure why the idiom uses 'men' as the example? Don't women collect 'junk' too?
yea, actually, i think women are bigger pack rats than men. thankfully i am a minimalist, so that's not an issue for me (plus, i've moved a lot in the past 5 years, so in order to minimize schlepping, much gets trashed or donated)!
We have moved often too, and having paid $7500 for the last move, I absolutely refuse to have to pay that much money again. For $7500 we could have re-purchased most of our 'treasure'!
I'm currently painting the last few white walls in the house, in anticipation of visitors...In doing that, I've moved more than a DOZEN boxes of stuff that I've carted around over the last SIX moves. Most of the stuff will end up at Goodwill as there are clothes I can/will no longer wear in several of them. Even then, I have more than enough to fill the rooms I've painted...
Stuff, stuff, stuff! I'm going through a time where I am trying to curtail my consuming. Not easy...
It's funny. I've noticed a definite DOWNWARD trend in my consumerism lately. Now, that COULD be due to lower income levels since I opened the store, OR (and I really think this more likely) it could be that in finding a "happy place" to exist I've lowered my need for purchasing "stuff" to make me happy. I haven't set foot inside a Walmart, a mall or big box store (except Staples - business stuff) for AT LEAST 4 months. I feel cleansed.
