Though The Man once told me that even if that Dream came True... we'd probably eventually change it back again gradually, until it was totally us again and no hint of the outside Styling was evident... he was probably right. But I like to Imagine at least a room at Home done up by someone whose Style and way of Feathering a Nest I just Adore and Admire. For some it appears so effortless to make everything look Amazing and more importantly, keep it in Order and looking that way.
Because therein lies my Personal Challenge... I can Style and Create Vignettes I'm Delighted with at Home... but keeping it all in Order and looking that way... not so much. In fact, Housekeeping is not at all my Special Gift and I'm too prone to excess to have Order for long in any particular room. There will usually be piles of stuff that need to find their own place and space sitting around waiting for that opportunity! *Le Sigh*
And it's ridiculous because I'll work very hard to get a room just the way I want it, sit back and bask in the accomplishment... only to have it slowly evolve back to needing a major intervention again... and think to myself, how and why did that happen?! I usually cannot place all the blame on the other occupants of our Home, though they certainly contribute and do their part, I'm often the guiltiest party of the mess!
I think I need a Personal Assistant behind me at all times either reminding me NOT to do that... or running damage control in my wake, I'm not sure there's any other way to 'fix' me 'cause Lord knows I've tried! Others have too, they've failed miserably, so this has to be a really Awesome Personal Assistant who doesn't give up on me too easily. One who gets paid in Praise of how Awesome and Priceless they are, 'cause though they're worth their weight in Gold, we ain't got any! *LOL* So, if you feel so Led, sign up for the Position right here in the Land of Blog, I'm taking all Applications and you'll definitely Feel Needed. *Winks*
Be prepared that these 'Hallowed Haven' Posts will seem to go on for an Eternity my Friends... I fully intend to go Long to cram all my Images into Posts since this is my Favorite Event Theme Annually... and I don't get out much anymore, so when I do Escape, I'm Photographing everything in sight that makes great Blog Fodder! *Smiles*
And since this was a Creepy Doll Haven for sure this Year, I HAD to Photograph all of the ones I couldn't Adopt personally, as a Service to them of coarse, so that you could and so that I'd feel Justified Photographing a Hoard of Creepy Doll Parts! *LOL*
Because, remember how we JUST talked about my chaotic piles of great stuff all over Bohemian Valhalla? Yep, there would have been piles of creepy doll parts if I'd brought Home every one I fell in Love with and was Jonesin' to have in my Personal Space. Which is already at Critical Mass even though the Great Edit and Purge seems to have gone on forever and a day so we ARE making Progress in the direction I want to go and one day arrive at in Minimalizing and Simplifying my Life!
