Sometimes I think of this weblog as a record of the things I allow myself to give up. I was a packrat as a kid, and still am in some ways, although the pending trans-Atlantic move is helping me give things away. These are the last two of a set of four bowls my mom gave me when I first moved out of the house--I've had them for 8 years! My friend is coming over today and I know she likes these bowls. You can't take it with you is my motto of the hour.

More "color week" here and here.

Such pretty bowls, and such a nice gesture to give them to your friend.

I know exactly what you mean. The record keeping aspect of blogging has made it much easier to cut up fabric I love, give things away, etc. Clearing the clutter feels good right now to me, I'm doing more than ever. I've always been a packrat.

What a lovely picture. You said it just right - the fact that it exists on my blog is enough for me to give it away or cut it up or sell it.
