I read this quote and I can't remember where so I apologise for not giving credit to it's finder to whom I am very grateful. I hope they will excuse me for being so bold. So thank you.
"Clutter is the poetry of our homes. It is an intimate view that is not always perfect..... dishes in the sink, books piled next to the bed (half stitched projects everywhere or is that just me?). Everything in it's place may give a certain satisfaction but a lived in room exudes comfort and warmth"
Mary Randolph Carter - author of "A perfectly kept house is a misspent life".
Being quite the clutterbug this little quote spoke to my heart.
