The William Morris project

” HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR HOUSE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW TO BE USEFUL,OR BELIEVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL” this blog is form http://www.pancakesandfrenchfries.com .Okay, it has been a wild day.(yesterday)!! Starting at 6:50 walking, Sacramento by 9, winco, lunch at the new black bear diner,r in Auburn, home, get S to go transfer title ( finally ) on her VW,plus check on AAA insurance in her own name, staples for school supplies and …. Ta da…. My new Brother label maker.

so where does that fit in to William Morris.? Well, everywhere I can make a neat label I will.imageIm going to make labels so my bins and files look neater.I think it’s going to be fun once I get the hang of it. It took me an hour to get the tape in right to work….?ok , I’m a little(a lot) technically challenged.

I think it will make what I label more uniform,and pretty. It seems like a useful thing to have. I did have a staples coupon for $20 off ,so I suppose that helped me decide.Well, it’s off to work and write that incident t report:(

So, I love this quote. I try to live by it and all my decluttering has been based on this. When I decided to get rid of the MIL Navajo rugs, it was because they were not useful and I didn’t love them . So many examples of this. But , there isn’t a lot left to make this decision on. But I’d still like to get rid of 50 % more. So far some things I’ve accomplished are: all Life magazines bins except 10. I’d like to get this to 5. Then my kids art work from school. One bin each. That’s down from about 8 total . So, I got rid of half my dishes. The closet and pantry looks good. I’m still working on it for now , happy decluttering.

So, I love mid century furniture ,specifically Heywood Wakefield. Here’s ( I hope) a picture of our table. I love this table, but am going to be selling it. why? Because , even though its called a double wishbone, there was a flaw in the design and the table wiggles unless it is against a wall, as shown. So it’s  a difficult decision, but I’ve tried everything, so I think I’m going to get a farm type table. I’d love a midcentury teak Danish one but they are very hard to find and expensive. So , what do you think? Danish, farm type? Ideas?
