It usually happens to me this time of year, I get the urge to purge. It's a post Christmas ritual. But this year I was "more than encouraged" my Mr Roboto. After months of ribbing me about how "dense" my accessorizing is getting, with not so subtle jibs and jabs, it finally all came to a head earlier this week. I guess I just couldn't get it all purged fast enough, or was not quite purging "enough".
So now the Super Purge has begun in earnest.
I don't really have any good pics to share because, frankly I'm not feeling it. I've removed everything and then one item at a time, I'm bringing a few things back. A fraction of what I had before. And with each item, I think to myself "will he hate this?" "Will this be one item too many?" He swears it's not my style that was bothering him, but the shear "volume" of stuff."
So starting with an empty hutch I began to ask him." How much is too much", I tried to pull up blog pics of decorated hutches, and to him it was ALL too much. This from my Chrome and Glass, Decorating Husband. AGGGGGG!! So that is where I've been this week, completely re-setting my entire home. Trying find that common ground that we can both live with.
On the other side of the coin, I've got lots of stuff!!! (above is only 1 wagon load) and it's all stacking up in the barn and will be trickling into my etsy store and booths over the next few months. I don't think I need to go junking for a long long time (no not really).
How about you, how does your" significant other" deal with your "junk"?
