Blue is such a soothing color.

The red section is a little misfit, but see those tiny boxes? They're match boxes and they both come from places in my D.C. and conjure up vivid and wonderful memories, so I adore this corner as well. Beneath these two shelves (the gold section is opposite and adjacent the red), I keep a portion of my sizable teacup collection. The rest have been stuffed in the cabinets downstairs for frequent use. I probably have more dishes to my credit than is perfectly reasonable in a person who still lives at home, but what can I say? I love pretty things. I'm a bit of a magpie. A simplified magpie, but a magpie all the same.
How have you simplified your life recently?
