I have been busy, busy the past couple of weeks. I love the start of a new year, as it is a great excuse to clean, organize & purge! How many things do we hang on to for reasons even beyond just being sentimental? I am trying to be "less is more" around the cottage, which isn't always easy when you are from a family of collectors! I find myself inspired by so many blogs, showcasing beautiful, open spaces. So, I have been carefully sorting through...
I have also gotten around to several painting projects but there is still more! I am in love with Annie Sloan Chalk paint & highly recommend it!
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week! Less is more!
