Embracing her inner Phoenix, she meticulously collected the fragments scattered around, discovering the resilience that intricately wove them together.

Eclectic ~ E-clek-tick

Eclectic. Don't you just love the sound it makes as it rides the windy waves, leaving your face? E-clek-tick. Say it fast. Say it slow. No matter how you say it, it to me means: "freedom". 

Freedom? But from what? You are wondering too, aren't you? Well, let me explain. 

As a woman in this American society there are a mountain of rules. Oh, I understand that all people, men and women are bound by these societal restraints, but no one does social quite like women. Everything, and I mean everything, is riding on how well we perform when it comes to our turn to be inspected. 

I'm sure the woman reading this are nodding their head's already getting my point. Let me dive a bit further into this "secret of society" for those still not quite catching my drift. 

Picture this: it's a beautiful spring Sunday, church is ending, everyone is all smiles as they shake hands and smile at the babies as everyone pours out through the doors of the sanctuary. It was to be true one of Pastor's best sermons yet! You're on cloud nine, as they say when you're shaken back to earth by a shrill voice. Ms. Barbera Ann. 

"Oh, sister Barbera, don't you look lovely today." 

"Thank you, thank Mrs. Woods, Mrs. Woods! I was just speaking with Pastor, and we have a situation! It seems that I will not be able to host the afternoon lunch at my place, my dog is ill, but I suggested that you wouldn't mind. You don't mind, do you dear? I will of course, make it up to you." 

Suddenly you feel the heat from all the eyes gazing upon you, and here on center stage you can't possibly give but one answer. "Of course, I don't mind. Come on over everyone." 

Quicker than a slinder dog chasing a rabbit on a dirt track you dash your way home.  Let me ask you, if it were you this week, unexpected host, would you be delighted or doomed? Shhh. I won't tell anyone. Your secret is safe with me. 

There are three types of homemakers, the ones who have it all together, the ones who don't, and the ones sort of in the middle who choose a very neat decorating style described as "eclectic". See? If you're of the eclectic variety no one expects your stuff to match. Things don't have to look like they are placed in a museum. Just as long as somehow, somewhere, there is a story, feeling, memory, tied to belongs. And you're practically a genius for having it there. Wherever there is. 

Eclectic releases the binding requirements of being a perfect decorator. Poof! The chains are off....and you are free to decorate however your little heart desires. 

Welcome to my portfolio-journal-blog-website. Here everything is carefully chosen based on a feeling, a story, a memory, or just because it sparkles or is neon. I really like sparkles and neon. And tree frogs. Such cute little sucker toes! I welcome you to pull up a chair, here's a cup of tea. Sit down for a bit and let just visit. Take a look around, if you like. As you can tell my decorating style is Eclectic in nature. 

I hope you enjoy your visit and why yes, I am always open to feedback from those willing to share. I'm sure glad you're here.
