Tipsy Tuesday: A Place of Honor

I absolutely love Peter Walsh from TLC's Clean Sweep.  He totally speaks my language.  One day I saw him on Oprah, and he said something that has so stuck with me.  He said if something has sentimental value to you, then give it a place of honor.  Don't let your sentimental items become clutter because then they become a burden to you instead of a joy.  (Dang, that's good, isn't it?!)
So this is a Barbie dress that my great-grandmother had made for my mom when she was a kid.  I always loved it, but I had it packed into my jewelry box for some reason.  I ran across it one day, and Peter's words chimed in my head: "Give it a place of honor."  So I went out an bought a shadow box.  I'm so glad I did, too, because I just love looking at it everyday, something I wasn't able to do with it packed away.

Do you have anything that you need to give a place of honor to?  Need some display ideas?   Weekend Bloggy Reading

  1. I do I have a figurine that belonged to my great grandma the only thing that keeps me from putting it out is my three little boys and my fear that they will break it.

  2. That is gorgeous, and such good advice. I need to just go ahead and donate or sell my wedding dress. It's been packed into one of those dry cleaner's boxes for a couple of years now. It wasn't my "first choice" for a gown, anyways, and I don't think either of my girls will want to wear it. I will keep my veil, b/c I loved it. Thanks for the motivation!
