On the Bookshelf



I am ready to to throw off the winter doldrums and bask in all that is bright and happy and green. Hello Spring. Just in time for the change of seasons, the lovely people at DwellStudios have released a new decorating tome aptly entitled, Undecorate. As in, throw off all those tedious rules, cliches, and perhaps even trends and let your home be a shining proclamation of you. I've yet to flip through the lovely pages of this sure to be great read, but I'm already fully wrapping my arms around the concept. So if you find me scarce in blogland this week, you know who to blame. My closets are calling, the fridge needs a good scrubbing, and the yard is looking mighty sad. I fully intend to undecorate and rediscover my home-sweet-home.

Girl, you and me both! We started with the yard a couple weeks ago, but the fridge is sad and I really want to clean out my closets.

I'm pretty sure that less stuff = happier me.

You found the great photos, and LAT featured some truly hideous ones.
