1. My last house was 1000 sq ft and it was all about survival with 5 people. Decorations might have gotten in the way of us making it to the bathroom or being able to lay down on a bed. Looking back---I probably could have done...something!
2. I hate spending money on decorations or decorating my house. I like the final results, but I just cry over the money spent. Any one else? Hence, why my new house is going for more of that "on purpose" simple look. i.e. I haven't really decorated or *gasp* even hung one thing on the wall in 5 months.
3. I don't know how. I don't think I'm naturally gifted at decorating or have quick good natural taste or an "eye" for seeing how something will look in a room. I am thankful for Pinterest though---It's really helped me--- like I suppose a cooking show helps a not so good cooker. Although, they still haven't helped me, but then again I don't watch them, maybe that's why? *Note to self...start watching cooking shows*
I "went crazy" by Candra's standards and hit up the local Target and a little of Ross for a few fall things and smells. Pretty happy. My husband was like wowzers about it---totally shocked me---I guess he's so use to no decorations, the few I did really made him feel like his house was a home. Hey---if he likes it---permission to spend more in this department I guess?
