I admit it. I'm no minimalist. I love being surrounded by old treasures that evoke good memories, new treasures that enchant me with their beauty or whimsy and ......... books, books, books!
The current trend is to reduce clutter. While I feel it is very beneficial to reduce items in our lives that we no longer need, use or love, I find that I am very grateful for the honour of possessing heirlooms or simply sentimental items. They give me great pleasure and enhance the contentment I feel in my home.
I also believe strongly, in 'Reduce, Re-use, Recycle" and purchasing vintage or used items satisfies all three!
Creating a home for yourself and the ones you love should reflect the people within it, and as taste is very personal, each home should be very different. I hope you will find some things on my site that create those good feelings in your home.
I welcome you to visit Meadow Sweet Grove often for a little bit of folklore, comfy home cooking recipes and a look at the vintage treasures I have rescued and now offer to you in my store.
