This describes it.
I am so tired of "stuff".
I'm drowning in it.

Maybe my stuff should meet your stuff, and they could runaway together. I wonder if there is a match dot com for stuff. A place where all the stuff in the world could gather (dust) and hang out (to dry). I am sure I would like some of your stuff, and you would like some of mine.......then your little boat (duckie) would float and be upright again. I made my husband happy, because just now I proved him right......I can talk, or write about nothing, to nobody in sight, for...... forever. Bon Yoyage.....duckie hope to see you riding the big waves soon.

How fun to stumble across your name, (then this blog) while checking the spelling of someone else's name on! So cool to see what you and your hubby are up to. Looks as if life is spiffy and blessed. I'm at, among many other places. Say "hey" if and when you have the time :)

In know the feeling.. every now and then I try to weed out and not have so much "stuff" around.. but then I aquire new "stuff". I think the truth of the matter is .. I just really like stuff!! or ... I have an addiction to it. I think the joy of nesting has the perfect solution.. vacation on the beach!!
have a sweet weekend!

the secret to 'stuff' is to keep it all in the open - as soon as you put it away in a dark place it breeds...

Stuff as in fabric, art supplies, various and sundry stuff??? or that AND household bric a brac and general "stuff".????
OMG, if you could see my garage you'd gasp for air!!
How DO we all manage to accumulate so much of it!!!
I think when it gets bad the oxygen mask should drop like in a plane...the alert we need to declutter immediately!

Hi Terisa...thank you for your sweet and thoughtful post on my blog and for taking the time to swing by! Monica is so fun and she has such a huge heart!!!

I couldn't help but smile about being so tired of *stuff* that you are drowning in it!!! Oh, I know this feeling...if it is just general life *stuff* or even accumulated *stuff*!!! I agree with Pattie, sometimes a little getaway does wonders!

Your aprons are beautiful and your husband's paintings are too! You are both SO talented!!!

Oregon is beautiful and so is Napa Valley!!! Oh, what I wouldn't give for a bit more of your sunshine!!! ~wink~

Have a nice weekend...~Lisa ;-)

Sounds like it's time to shovel out from under to get a new perspective. I did it last year - got rid of a bunch of "stuff" I thought I'd never use again. It's so freeing!

Good luck trying to right yourself...

We have too much don't we? That is why spring cleaning can be therapeutic/garage sales are a good thing....whatever I don't to the junk yard....well maybe I will keep just that one thing...ok this other thing too....heehee
