Mary Randolph Cater

I have been really inspired by her books lately. I call it, the art of not housekeeping and it is my new philosophy...

For the Love of Old: Living with Chipped, Frayed, Tarnished, Faded, Tattered, Worn and Weathered Things that Bring Comfort, Character and Joy to the Places We Call Home


A Perfectly Kept House is the Sign of A Misspent Life: How to live creatively with collections, clutter, work, kids, pets, art, etc... and stop worrying about everything being perfectly in its place.  


  1. This is interesting, as I'm often accused (correctly) of being somewhat of a neat-freak.

    You know, maybe I could lighten up on that, assuming it's just force of habit, and not actually OCD, giving myself time to do more things in a day than readjusting the arrangement of my desktop when I'm not at the library.

    ...Food for thought, and that's always a good thing.

  2. I LOVE neat freaks! That's the problem. If I don't learn to embrace the messiness I'll never get out alive - lol :)
