I believe I may have figured out what my "problem" is.
One of my favorite quotes of all time is this, from
" If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
I, quite simply, find beauty in far too many things. What other eyes may perceive as clutter, rather I opine are little bits of beauty all around me.
The little vintage sculpture of a dancer (shown above backed by a lovely paper based on a William Morris design) recently came loose from it's little wooden base. I can find no markings on it of any kind, therefore I know nothing about it whatsoever.
Except that I believe it to be beautiful. Hmmm.....
