Granting a Pardon from Guilt!
I know this is a major emotion for women, so let me help you with one area of guilt, as it relates to your home décor…..gifts.
Countless times over the years I have heard from customers that they have something they “really should keep because I got that from (fill in the blank).” I want to let you know…..it’s okay to put it away.
In 1987 I gave my brothers and sisters Victorian doll Christmas tree toppers that I had made; it was a big trend at the time. Over 20 years later I was at my brother’s house and there was that doll on their tree. I said, “What the heck is that doll doing on your tree?” You see, my motive in giving it was just for a fun day opening gifts, not to shackle them to it for two decades after it was out of style!
It is safe to say, that is the motive for many of gifts you receive. Decor items you receive as shower and wedding gifts are meant to help out in what could be an otherwise empty first home. If your style evolves or the trend has passed, it is perfectly okay to move on. Of course, there will always be a home for a special piece that really ties to a great person or memory.
In no way do I recommend that you sanitize your home from the past…..just liberate yourself for the future.
