Since joining this blogging family I have noted how so many people love collecting and making things to display in their beautiful homes and I have been struck by the difference in style between here, in the UK and the USA. That is a sweeping generalisation I know but most of my friends and neighbours have followed the trend to de – clutter ( at the expense of bulging attics and garages!)
Now retired my aim is to minimise all unnecessary housework, which I hate, and to have more time to do what I enjoy such as painting, my grand children, photography, gardening, reading, trips out to the countryside, etc.etc. and I thought you might like to see some photos of our sitting room having recently redecorated.
I am not entirely happy with it yet, my pictures are still in a pile in my office waiting for Mike to get his drill out ( more mess) and for hard decisions to be made as to what is going back on the walls.
