Simplicity

2.19.2010

Another busy week wrapping up. I told myself that I wasn't allowed to do anything today until the house was cleaned and the laundry put away. Amazing how things pile up so quickly into those dreaded piles around your house when the week gets busy. I'm going to tackle mine this morning with hopes that it will be a nice way to start out the weekend.

I've been trying to clean out and simplify for the past few weeks but don't feel like I am getting very far.

A few months ago I was introduced to this blog by Jennifer (Happy Birthday, by the way). I spent hours looking around at their beautiful home. Where is her junk? Jennifer said it best when she responded to me with "Her junk is pretty." Ha. It's true....

Trina's house makes me want to clean out the stuff that I haven't used in months and to just freshen some things up.
.
Here are some photos of her beautiful home that she and her husband have worked so hard on. If aren't a regular reader of her blog- I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

her "junk" is so pretty... We have been simplifying too. I still need to get the clothes actually out of the house that cleaned out. This will be the week, I hope.

I LOVE HER BLOG. I think I have every picture of her home saved to a special folder on my computer. I always think the same thing too...where is all their stuff? Haha. :-) I also need to clean the house...I like the, "You are not allowed to do anything until these things are cleaned" motivation.

I just did that on Tuesday...turns out once you get started it's so much easier/quicker than just making it a big deal in the first place. Who knew? :) Also, get a good itunes playlist going...you'll be unstoppable! Love the farmhouse!

I love her home too. It's beautiful, but liveable, and just plain gorgeous. I live in an old house too, so her blog gives me so much inspiration.

I love Trina's blog.... I yearn for her "pretty junk". Every item in her home is thoughtfully placed. Nothing unnecessary.

Trina said...

Hi! That is so funny about the junk! We have junk! Some is pretty, some is not. The not so pretty junk goes in places we don't see often - like um, our downstairs closets and oh, the basement where it's so dark you can hardly see anything!! xoTrina

Her home is gorgeous! I definitely have a little cleaning up to do this weekend myself...

Haven and Home said...

Seriously where is it? I know there is a closet lurking somewhere that resembles all the closets in my home....

I think it's a talented person who can balance simplicity and homey-ness and beauty - it looks like this lady certainly has it down...

And an encouragement for you - don't give up the simplifying process... it may be tough and you may not feel like you're making progress, but in the end it's worth it. So keep it up!

If I could only read one blog a day it would be Trina's. She definitely has a very special touch that few have.
