Less is More

Hello Guys and Gals…
I have been pondering lately…you know me! forever the procrastinator!
I want my house to be less cluttery and more light! Now i am not sure how i am to achieve this, because i am already a busy lass! But I do feel our house is a little tired of the things that I have in it….some things need to go and some will have to stay…I have finally decided all of this because I read this article by my lovely blogging friend Natasha from Candy Pop.

I have had a little go at it….I totally cleared out my garage and a lot of things in my cupboards and took them all to a boot sale near me and what I didn’t sell I donated to a lady that was selling opposite me (you can read about that here) therefore i returned home clutter free yay!

I love the picture above to decorate my caravan inside…Freddy can’t get in there anymore…and the decor is so much different to what it was like before!,,,he had collected a lot of dollies heads lol…and right at this moment they are in there in all their glory lol!…so it is now up to me to make it into a little haven for myself instead!…

These pictures that you see before you are pictures that seem to be inspiring me lately…I think I have done with the kitsch element in my decoration and want to go back to how we used to decorate a few years ago now, with perhaps more pastely colours and more French Shabby Chic…

I also love this pale blue…I have this in the bathroom, but the floor boards really do set this picture off lovely…and there is not much going on in this little corner…that’s something i am going to have to get to grips with…LESS IS MORE!

I wonder…I wonder if I can actually remember this when I am sorting out all my JUNK clutter Antiques!

I have always been a red, white and blue gal, but I feel I would like to add a few more pastels into the mix and really pull back on the 1970’s kitsch patterns…

Ideas have been going round and round in my head…I think I have got to go with the less is more theme…otherwise one day I will be trapped under a landslide of clutter haha!

I love the photography of Fiona Murray {pic below} and looking at her work got my heart beating…also I love Jenny and Aaron from Everyday is a Holiday they create cake shop masterpieces in pastels like no other…just reading her blog has made me fall in love with candy colours all over again!

The darker evenings will be drawing in soon, but lets not think that we can not declutter and that that kind of job is just for the spring! I plan (hopefully) to have a less cluttery space by Christmas!…and if I am not pulling my socks up and getting on with it!

You have permission to nag tell me *wink*

Speak soon my lovelies xxx

    this is an on going thing with me. I constantly find things I can do without. I would move out my Madame Alexander dolls too if I could find a good place to sell them. This week I tackled my linen closet, why did I have 25 sheets, and 25 towels I really didn't use? Gave them all away!

    Love your blog! … and I am on the same path, trying to declutter this year. I am using the Simplify word for the year… so hopefully by Christmas I too will have less. I have already gotten rid on some furniture, clothes, bathroom stuff… working my way! … and I too soon will be quitting candy crush LOL
