Everyone has clutter, I don’t care what ya say. Some people are just better at disguising it.
I love the clutter in one corner of my kitchen because it reminds me of my wonderful trip to my BFF Tracy’s house in PA this past year. We did some antique shopping and I brought back the scale (OMG! you should have seen the lady at the airport security when I had that packed in my luggage…."ma’am, we’re gonna have to look in your bag" I can just imagine what all the innards of the scale looked like to them on the x-ray machine – but all was fine when she saw what it was – I explained where it was gonna go in my kitchen, and how I was gonna fill it with fruit, and after her eyes glazed over from boredom, she let me go) and the awesome metal strainer and the fake fruit. I can still see Tracy’s sweetie pie hubby (who will remain nameless to protect the innocent) carrying around our purchases while we shopped….he acts like a tough guy, but he does not fool me….XXOO!
At Christmas time I just change out the flowers and fruit and put in Christmas ornaments, fake snow, and pine cones, and change around the foliage and knick knacks.
This, unfortunately for anyone wanting to visit at my house and expecting to sleep here for the next week or so, is the guest bedroom. It has swaps that I am hosting in it, Long Distance packages that need to be finished and mailed out from SSU, class supplies, orders to be picked up or delivered, and anything else that I am working on that I can’t have all over the tables in my stamp room because I have a class this weekend.
This would be what I mentioned earlier about the disguise of clutter, I just shut the bedroom door and everyone thinks I have a clean non-clutter house…ha!!!!
So, just enjoy your clutter everyone. Flaunt it! Show it off! It’s nothing to be embarrassed of…..hey shut that door!
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping in!

Well when you come in March for Cruise we HAVE to hit the Antique Shops again. BUT because Jeff will be with us aka Sweetie Pie can still hold your purchases and it can simply look like he's holding mine!!
Oh My Land!!!! That Bedroom was so neat and tidy when I slept in it. But I bet you'd clean it in a split second if I said I was on my way!!!!
Ya know I do need one of those AWESOME AZ. pedicures!!
