Collection Day

My sister came into my room a few months ago and told me she'd read an interesting quote on her drink bottle that day. "The less you own, the less that owns you". I'm in the process of moving out of a house I've lived in for the past four years-- and that quote is constantly in my head.  I'm moving into a much smaller house -- and I can't wait to get rid of the unnecessary clutter that has become my belongings.  For most items, when you don't have it, you don't need it. I'm looking forward to testing my theory -- so it's yard sale time!
Speaking of stuff... My mom just sent me a link to this cool blog, A Collection A Day, 2010. It's a collection a day for 365 days -- and the kicker is -- the woman already has these collections in her house.  I can't say I'm jealous of the quantity of stuffshe has -- but I love the idea and the collages of her collections are fun to peruse. Check out Day 100 -- it is my favorite...
