When it comes to decorating an outfit with extra little accessories here and there, I am awesome. When it comes to putting decorative detail work onto garments I am creating, still awesome. But when it comes to incorporating decorative touches around my house, I’m not so awesome.
I am awful at having knick knacks. Either I have every surface covered in projects, piles of stuff to sort through, supplies, functional items, etc or I have completely bare surfaces (RARE!). I’ve never been good at strategically placing decorative items in my living space. Maybe it’s because I always have limited space and money, so I think “Why would I spend money on something that has a sole purpose of TAKING UP SPACE?!?!” But, I am trying. My partner and I have been slowly working knick knacks into our home and it’s kind of exciting. Okay, mostly it’s tough, but it’s also exciting. Here’s a little snippet of part of our house that has been “accessorized.” (Maybe using this terminology will help me gain knick knack skills.)
