A Favorite Quote

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
~ William Morris

I love the quote above. It is a wonderfully simple way to say "have no clutter" because I don't know of anyone who thinks that clutter is beautiful.

  1. I try to keep that quote in mind when I'm going through my house. It sums up exactly what we should have.

  2. Interesting to know.

  3. I love the principle, I just wish it was easy for me to put in practice.

    I have many decorative "pretties" that I think are lovely in and of themselves; the question is, do I want to share space with them every day. This is where I dither, and hold onto things that it wouldn't kill me to let go of.
