What’s in your Stash?

I know I’ve said it myself….

And I’ve read other bloggers who talk about their “stash”….

But, I realized, that maybe, just maybe….

Not everyone has a stash.

Being a border-line hoarder, and interior designer, and someone who loves furniture, has left me with a stash.

So, when I talk about decorating from your “stash”, you may be wondering how you are going to do that when your stash consists of crocheted doilies, or used bicycle parts, or vintage postcards? hats, shoes, teacups! Oh My!!!

Well, I say that’s the best place to start!


Those collections are “signs”of what you love, or are drawn to.


So, if you are thinking about decorating that room…

Pull out your “stash”, take a good long look at it…

pick your 3 favorite items…

And maybe, just maybe, you will get a cue of where to begin….

Maybe you’ll see a color scheme emerge…. or a shape…a pattern…

a snapshot of an era or style…

That can be your starting point…

So, tell me, What’s In Your Stash?  Do you see what’s in mine?

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.
