Ah clutter! Aren’t you just the bane of all our lives?
Though Vintage Housekeeping as a way of life is abundant with blessings, one really mustn’t make the mistake of confusing blessings with clutter because there is nothing quite so ugly or draining on the soul as drowning in a sea of all that you imagine might come in useful one day.
You see, I am here to tell you, my Darling, that having a stash of used carrier bags won’t save your life. Starting, but never finishing many a journal before moving on to the next for a “fresh start” won’t keep divorce or disaster from your door. Hoarding clothes that fitted you when you were sixteen won’t mean you will find the incentive to slim back into them before you are sixty and owning thirty three bottles of shampoo won’t turn a bird’s nest into a bouffant.
I’m sorry, but there it is. Life is cruel and cluttering up your brain with all this nonsense isn’t helping a jot…
