I will admit, I used to be the random knick-knack queen. It all started with my grandma getting me a small bear figurine when I was about 6 for my birthday…then after that, every year someone would get me a random figurine for my birthday. (I honestly didn’t really enjoy them, but I was a kid, and didn’t have a lot of control over my stuff). Years later, I had accumulated picture frames of all shapes and sizes, lots and LOTS of figurines, and just random decorations that would sit on my bookshelves and get dusty. A few months ago I decided enough is enough, I hate dusting all of that stuff, and they just took up space.
I went through and Marie Kondo’ed it all. I put them all together and only picked out the ones that I truly enjoyed. Out of maybe 50-60 pieces, I kept less than 10. It is such a breath of fresh air to not have to dust so many tchotchkes. And I kept the ones made out of glass or wood, that way when they finish their lives with me, they will eventually be recycled.
Check out what I have left:
A reading figurine (so cute, and I am a book enthusiast, so it totally fits me)
3 tall blue glass jars
1 glass figurine
A glass tiger head
How many figurines/decorations have you kept?
