Old Camera Love... Among Other Things

Our Home is an Eclectic Mix of so many of the things I Love.  Old Cameras... Old Books... Old Suitcases & Bags... Natural Elements... Uniquely Created Art & Fashion... etc... etc... etc...  Because the Love of Old has been something I've always had... as well as the Quirky Elements & Oddities that I find Interesting, Unique, Inspirational, Visually Appealing or just plain Weird enough that I connect with them in some mysterious way!  *LOL*  And when it comes to Art & Fashion, well, the more Unique and Creative, the bretter.

Something doesn't have to have Function for me to cherish it and find Value in it or a use for it... many of the Found Treasures we have are simply Display quality only... or are perfectly charming in their Imperfections in fact or have been Upcycled into new uses they were never Designed nor intended for.

And I will Drape and Layer anything and everything... Simplicity isn't one of my strong points... though I'm trying to get better at it.  *Winks*  I am attempting to declutter and simplify as the years progress... but only because it is a lot of upkeep... to whom much is given, much is required.  Though I seriously doubt I would be content in a sparsely decorated Home with little to look at... I can be intrigued by short periods of time spent in a Zen-like Minamalistic setting... and I might try some Minimalist Space just to see if it will grow on me?  *Smiles*   

My list of Loves is so vast that it seems as though it would be difficult to do away with so much of it that only a precious few remained... but I am learning to Let Go of so much more than I expected that I would or could... and knowing that it will end up being Loved somewhere else by somebody else gives me great Joy.

  1. It sounds to me like you're growing up!
    Personally, I could live in an empty room forever. But that will never happen since I can't let go some things.
    I love that jar full of pool balls! I need to do that.

  2. LOL!!! At first, I thought that was your booth and and thought when did you bring that awesome stuff in that I missed seeing! I didn't realize that was your home! Love it!!! xo

  3. It is hard to let go of some of our treasures. I'm in the process myself. I figure if I let go of some I'm perhaps not as much in love with hopefully I can see better the one's that I am. All the items are beautiful that you surround yourself with. It's that dang Spring Fever!

  4. Old cameras! I don't even know how to use cameras anymore. I let my daughters take all the photos in the family! Great pics, as always.
