Elizabeth and others are hosting Loveliness Fairs this year.
The current fair is titled Elegant Simplicity in Learning Spaces.
Now, I'll be frank.
We don't have a Learning Space per se.
We tend to view the whole house as a Learning Space - just as we view the whole of our lives as Learning Time.
However, over the years of babies and toddlers and older children, I have learned a few tricks about keeping clutter at bay. And about strewing.
One way I de-clutter is by having shelves and nooks and containers.
You can see our family room stationery and art nook above.
And our sitting room coffee table/camphor wood chest is currently one of our strewing tables - we saw a python show on the weekend ( before the Big Bike Accident) and so I have placed a book on snakes on the chest for possible perusal.
Simple ~ yes. Elegant ~ well, I am not so sure.
