Some of my clients, who have abundant lives, have homes they find distressing because there's just too much stuff. I've often asked people, "Do you love that thing, or is it just OK? And do you have room for things that are just OK?"
So I was delighted when We Covet pointed me to this wonderful print from Amanda Atkins: Be Among the Things You Love.
For more reading on this theme, you could turn to Small Notebook, where Rachel writes about having a "home free of clutter, with just the things that make you smile." She notes there will be exceptions - "a few things that are good to own even if they don’t make you happy to look at them (the toilet plunger, for instance)" - but you could even get a toilet plunger that makes you smile, if you really wanted to.
