The delightful Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage has started a meme which grabbed my attention.
On Thursdays you can forget about cleaning house, straightening up, dusting and polishing, organizing 'stuff', pulling weeds, mowing lawns, fixing things............just to shoot a photo for your blog of something perfectly IMPERFECT around your house or garden.
Claudia wants us to be brave and take a photo of something messy, broken, disorganized, even downright ugly. In other words, she wants us to show the REAL, the IMPERFECT in our homes, not just the pretty parts.
So here to help kick off this fun meme, is my current untidy, waiting to be fixed, new but very old chandelier. It has been in the middle of the living room for well over a week now ~ and I will stick back the bits which broke off in the trunk of my car while bringing it home, just give me a little more time. To me this isn't too ugly, after all if one has a pile of
junk antique beauty awaiting a little fix to make it operable and usable, enjoy looking at it no matter what.
In coming weeks I may be a little braver when it comes to showing you reality around the cottage...........the really messy bits are waiting in the wings!
Do stop over to visit Claudia and join in on Thursdays - after all you don't even have to pick up or dust!!
