  1. I think our furry friends bring us more happiness than we realise. Here i am browsing tinternet with my dogs at my feet, and a one of my cats on my lap, it’s battering down with rain and wind, true contentmnt 🙂

    Off now to read the linkys…

    P.s those hand towells are lovely colours…

  2. I have seen the website of the Burning house before, and I like the thought behind it. (I just don’t follow it, because I find that a waste of my time).

    I also like the “Anti-consumerism is the new democrazy” post. Although I’m not participating in “Buy nothing new in October” (probably will try it in february), I still enjoy reading about it. Buying nothing new will probably cause some downfall for some companies, but they could be creative and make themself “pop” out of the crowd so they will survive.

    • Hi Nurchamiel,
      I often wonder what the new financial landscape would look like with a reduction of the production of stuff that the world really doesn’t need. I think that is is possible to change and I am sure it will be a slow transition if it does happen so there will be time to adjust. I think services and experience will become the new taget for out space cash. Lets hope there is a way to change the world before it is too late.

  3. Hi Colleen,
    I really enjoyed reading through the entries in BurningHouse. The photos were beautifully done. I look forward to the websites you share on Fridays. Thanks.

    • Hi Di,
      that Burning House web site is interesting isn’t it. It is funny the things that people find important while others just wish the house would burn down while they are out and then they won’t need to deal with the clutter.

  4. I’m happy you felt that comment of mine was worth highlighting because I feel your balanced approach is a voice of reason in a sea of blogs where one is often advised to get rid of everything except the exact things we are using 🙂

    Update on my latest efforts: I’ve just gotten rid of two boxes and one bag of books; off to the annual used book sale for charity. Even the hubby was able to let a few go! I find that getting older helps me with choosing what to keep – how do I want to spend my remaining reading time? Could apply to many things – how do I want to spend my remaining relationship time, mothering time, work time, hobby time, etc.
