I wrote this post in June 2010. A post about how we surround ourselves with too many possessions, so many things we don’t need, so many things that hold us in one place. Cupboards and boxes full of things I love but have no immediate use for. I was carefully considering, if I could only keep twelve items from my home to start over again, which twelve would I take? I’m talking personal possessions not clothes, people, pets (they are a given) just the useful, decorative and treasured.
With a house move definitely on the horizon this year, we are wondering, what do we really need? Special memories, warming cosy light, something to keep hands busy, family heirlooms. Things that mean something, things with a past life and a secret story. If I chose again now I would pick the same collection?
Could you keep just twelve items? If you would like to play along for 2013 send me a link to your 12 things blog post, or if you are interested to see some past collections from my Lobster and Swan friends, (click the link scroll down the linked page to see some lovely treasures).
