I find myself saving more & more things lately. I have convinced myself at this point that I don’t have a problem, but that remains to be seen. As the weather warms up I have been spending more time out doors with my 18 month old son, and as we are exploring this new world together I have been gathering stones, lumber & nuts. I don’t really have any idea what I want to do with these items, or whether I will even use them, but I set them aside just in case new perspectives & experiences bring inspiration for creativity.
Old lamps, hardware, & miscellaneous components, that by themselves have no charm, can be disassembled and paired with organic elements like stone or wood to create new décor that have hints of a past life. Some of the most attractive elements inside or outside the home can be the right pairing of seemingly simple and common items.
