Hoarders Rejoice: Clutter can be Pretty

I like clutter.  Pretty clutter.  Lovely things to look at everywhere I look.

For me, aesthetically pleasing clutter is visual stimulation.  And it inspires me creatively.

this dizzy dance
I hate empty walls, barren dresser tops, empty desks.   It's so sad to look at.

a punch of color design
Maybe it's the Victorian/artist/creative-chaos/collector/hoarder/packrat in me.

Maybe I just find everything to be useful or beautiful. ;)

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
