We spent most of Friday, tidying, sorting and throwing out stuff...i love throwing out stuff - when i say 'throwing out', i mean - donating. Its a cleansing thing.. its about renewal. Keeping the things that we use and actually like!! So I created a new corner - my nature corner - with all my collected pieces of nature (which actually excite me!!!) I love the different shapes and textures and colours - so organic and inspirational.
Looks a little like a corner from a primary school classroom!!!
Next to the nature shelf is my converted drawer, where i keep other treasures.

    i love the idea of a nature corner! i have various seeds and shells and other such lovelies spread around my apt. what a great thing to gather them all together. and it does feel good to unload some of the unused stuff we've collected...i always like to think about who may pick up my stuff at the thrift store...
