Musing on Collecting X

April 27, 2013

Back home and catching up on the magazines that arrived while I was in Chicago, I was struck by a quote from Erin Flett in Country Living.  Erin believes that life and decorating, is “like weaving a tapestry. You don’t buy a bunch of stuff at once. Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.”

That reminded me of the night I came home. I was sitting in my usual place on the couch looking around my living room, when I noticed that my husband was smiling affectionately at me.  I realized that he had observed me appreciating my stuff – the tapestry of our lives.
