And this, exhibit A, is my own quiet work/typing space. Not always spic and span, but at the end of a purging cycle and vacay, we're ready for the (too soon to imagine) September freak out! In regard to ones' own work space, or desk, I can only say….don't let anybody else near it. For those of you with younger kids and cats, good luck. If it's clean, I want it to stay that way, and if it's a mess, I don't want someone else to see that errant bill/ticket/note that is not meant for their eyes. I've strategically placed my random pile of papers on the antique sewing machine right outside of the viewfinder. Have faith, it's a pretty tiny stack, because I sift through the whole thing almost regularly (two days ago).
|Exhibit A: Heywood Wakefield desk, clean and beautiful.|
|Exhibit B: even photos, letters, cards need to be curated periodically.|
|Exhibit C: Gotz dolls in their finery on a daybed.|
