    Recently, I have been reading about very early american lifestyle and home decor. It has inspired me to try and see if I can embrace a more simple approach. I am especially drawn to the cabin, prairie farm style where every item had a use and purpose. Like the photo above, there is true beauty in something that is not competing with surrounding knick-knacks that are never used or even authentic. sigh. I have a lot of learning and clearing out to do! But the idea of embracing what had been the rule of thumb for households has me intrigued and inspired. I am curious to see what I end up actually doing. Stay tuned!

      Purging stuff and simplifying one’s home décor is like cleansing your palate. The little things get tastier, you see more, your senses become more rested, less overwhelmed. It’ll be a fun journey, Winnie.

    Solitude, is what this reminds me of. Back to the day when some things were simpler and at the end of very long day you could just sit for a minute in front of the fire and say life is hard but good!

  3. Reminds me of a house I lived in In Vermont many years ago. I’m not good at a simple ethic for decor, I like to see my pretty things about me , especially ones that touch my heart, like ones passed down to me. My books, paintings done by loved ones, hand made quilts and so on.I live a simple lifestyle, but just not a simple home.
