Today we received some gorgeous new books. One I have been waiting for for ages, "A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign Of A Misspent Life" - love it. I think it could become my new motto! It's full of photos of "lived in" homes, which I personally find much more interesting than boring bland perfect spaces. The homes are filled with collections, memories, children, pets, clutter, work, and lots of creativity.
Which brings me to this photo of home, living with four males has its challenges, I gave up trying to have a perfectly kept home years ago, can't even photograph my own home without capturing a collection of ties and clothes hanging off the dining room chairs! Then when I looked closer at the photo (which was taken about 4 years ago) on the blackboard is the "Tidy Bedroom Competition" one of my many strategies for trying to encourage the boys to keep their rooms tidy. I don't think anyone has any points!!!
