And when is enough just plain too much?
That is the burning life question with which I am grappling as I finish up my "settling in" process.
I KNOW I already promised I was FINISHED with my moving posts - - - but I tell myself this is not REALLY a moving post. This is a BURNING LIFE QUESTION post.
It is not MERELY my blog which is eclectic - - - I am quite eclectic myself. DUH, as if I needed to tell you that!
As I have been settling into our little nest, I have wanted to keep mementos of all the eclecticity that has been my life around me.
And so, I have placed family heirlooms next to school teacher memorabilia next to family keep sakes next to Burr Camp nostalgia all over my abode.
These cherished items are literally sitting next to and on top of each other in every nook and cranny of our small duplex.
I could point them out to you and tell you the significance of each - - - but that should really be another post, no?
In fact, it is somewhat of a miracle that all of my boxes are now unpacked and everything has found its place and is in its place.
Which brings me back to my original question - - - When is enough enough and not just plain too much?
I can live with not having any style whatsoever except eclecticity - - - I've known that about myself for years. I have made no claim to being a decorator.
And I am enjoying having all my little treasures out and about where they can be seen and not heard.
But today as I walk about the rooms, looking here and looking there, I am forced to ask myself that aforementioned burning life question: "Is this enough enough or is it just plain too much??? Should I box some of this back up and store it away for another day?
Oh no - - - please say it isn't so - - - please say I don't have to do ANY more boxing!!!
I'm NOT Manny Pacquiao, you know!!
