A different life this year

Hello Dear friends,

I apologize for neglecting my blog and hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this fabulous fall weather!

For someone that has retired I am forever in a day busy. I like being a productive person as it makes me feel as though I have accomplished something!

I can hardly believe we have been in the condo almost a year now! In the house it took me 2 weeks to weed thru my fall things and decorate but now that we are here I was done in 2 hrs. I have not put hardly any Halloweenish stuff out but due to the boys will be adding some lighted pumpkins to the mix.I sold the biggest majority of it and feels so good.My daughter took quite a bit also.

I have an overall urge to take control of my life and have an essence of who I am. Not controlled by THINGS!!

Now don't get me wrong I have my things I love. My samplers, pewter, bowls, coverlets, crocks and tinware.But in the past I have allowed my things to control my life. Prim lovers know how easy this is to do.

Defining oneself with things is an all controlling venue that makes you irrational and selfish. Start letting things go one at a time if you want less and you might just be surprised.

I feel more power. Don't pay attention to the crazy red head because I still love my Prims. I own them. They no longer own me. Does this make sense to anyone out there???

I will share a few photo's before I leave/

Prim Blessings.



  1. Hi Candilou,yes.....sometimes the prims get the better of us. Your home looks cozy and warm , ready for Fall. Loooove your header picture, real prim perfect, Blessings Francine.

  2. Candi~I so get what you are saying.I have been slowly letting go and after a while you stop missing "it"..It's a relief to pull one box down to decorate rather than 5.So much easier to keep after the cleaning too.Yes it stops owning you.Gotta say though occasionally I do miss something I let go like when I see some of my dolls at a friends but I think it's more the memory than the item.Warm Blessings!~Amy
