I've always been a nester. Home couldn't be more important to me and the things I create and where I make life happen. But this being my first home owner experience has made the transition a much deeper one. It's only a few weeks in but I'm already revelling in the feeling that this one's permanent (or at least personal). All the things I've been collecting over the years finally have a resting place and the ones that don't finally can move on. A huge relief for a collector of too many treasures. I Also have been experimenting with restraint of all things. Something that's farly unfamiliar territory for me. I've been playing with color, texture and inspiration in a thematic way. And sticking to it.
That's been a great process for me. I've been longing for a more soothing atmosphere and the processs of editing my life and my things has helped.
I'm still chipping away at studio, office and closets but the longer it lasts perhaps the better. It feels good that I know I have as long as I want to savor the projects around here.
But even better is the feeling of sunlight, windows, white walls and a place to share with friends and loved ones. I couldn't be more grateful for this change in my life. A home...for real. xoxoxo...
