March has been about a renewal of our decluttering efforts, and about finishing off all those snagging tasks to make the house finally feel more finished and a whole lot calmer. As I’ve cleared out the clutter, I’ve been able to give the things I really love more space to be displayed. Whilst tackling the mammoth job of clearing our garage, we discovered a collection of pots made by Ben’s gran, that were carefully wrapped up and stored away in a box buried deep in all our accumulated junk. I can only think that they hadn’t gone out on show when we first got them because I just couldn’t find any free space on all the already jam-packed surfaces in our home. And so they got packed away into the garage and forgotten about.
I decided to display all these beautiful ceramic pots together on my bedroom shelves. Not only does this allow us to really appreciate them (Ben’s gran had such a talent, and each piece is really stunning), but they also serves as a little reminder of how much I’ve achieved with decluttering this month. Plus they’re a great source of motivation to keep going, and to make sure our hoarding tendencies are kept in check.
