I have been doing some gentle sorting in my studio, continuing on from last week - just a little bit here and there in the hot weather - and believe it or not this cupboard has been completely sorted and is looking a whole lot tidier! When I sit at my desk this is on the far side of the room to my left.
In the cupboard are treasures such as old bones, dead insects, half a crab, surplus teacups and milk jugs, antique baby shoes and many other precious bits that can't possibly be thrown away. To the right of the cupboard you can just see my Grandma's carpet beater and some sewing machine drawers stuffed behind a pile of old suitcases (I'm a sucker for a vintage suitcase!)
At right angles to the cupboard I have three small shelves with lots more little precious bits and pieces including my collection of old teacups and saucers. The individual shelves are generally grouped in colour order and my justification for collecting more treasures is that I often use them in photography!
As you can see I have a strong hoarding instinct but it's coupled with a strong desire to live with no clutter - it's a constant battle!!
I'm linking up with Julia over at What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday. Why not pop over there and have a nosey around other people's work spaces!
