Less is More....

Today I planned on doing laundry, finishing up some projects, and cleaning the house.  Well, um... I did some of it. lol.  I started my laundry and as that was running I sewed up a few things in order to be able to coffee stain them.   I painted the picture frame I needed.  I picked out the fabric I wanted to use with my newest punchneedle piece.  Priorities people!!!!  Projects before housework!!! At least that is my motto. LOL.  Then I poured my second cup of java sat down in my messy dining room and decided to heck with cleaning let's rearrange.  I have been informed by some of my like minded friends that this is OK because I dust things off as I move them.  That's cleaning right?  So, I went through my dining room and moved things around a bit.  I took some things out to try once again to simplify.  It is so hard because I have so many collections.  I actually thought about needing more crocks, but looked around and geez I have more than I thought. LOL. I can't help it.  I just LOVE them as well as my wood bowl collection.  ughhh.... it's a curse I tell you!!! I can't have just 2 or 3 of something. Oh no!!! It has to be a ton.  And that my dear friends is why I am running out of room to put stuff here at the homestead.

WARNING: Picture heavy!!!  This is as far as I got today in the dining room.  Still sort of Springy in here don't you think?

















Hopefully tomorrow I can finish up all my unfinished projects and then stitch on my newest cross stitch pattern I started yesterday at work.

I agree, moving things around is still cleaning cause like you said you dust as you go! We sold our sofa and matching chair over the weekend in our yard sale. Oh and hubby's recliner too! He is now sitting on the patio furniture :) till we go shopping.....I should be cleaning today but I started on a new "punch needle" piece and ran errands. Did get some laundry done though!
Always love to see photos of your lovely home Mary.
