My friend K always impresses me with her energy and passion for new ideas.
Recently, she had a stack of books about decluttering your house and simplifying your life through decorating.
We took the books with us when we went out to have tea and read through them. I was very inspired! After a very large glass of a highly caffeinated black tea, I went home and cleared off my mantle, eager to make my house a haven of peace and serenity.
When I was done, I sent her a picture on my cell phone of the finished product.
"Congratulations," she wrote back. “You’ve made your fireplace into Cookie Monster.”
