Sleeping with the enemy

I like Finnish blogs.
Mostly I read Varpunen and Weekday Carnival.
They both show nice, white, very clean stylish home environment. Maybe this is the attraction for me.
It’s funny how you relate to other bloggers without knowing them, a little like with celebrities. They are like long lost friends.
When I was jamming this wardrobe full I was thinking about this Varpunen post. Mumbling to my self over Varpunen,
I mean i like the blog but this made me kind of sick. Nauseous like watching Julia Roberts opening the kitchen cabinets in Sleeping With the Enemy, sick of my own disorganized home and kind of jealous of someone so in control over the chaos in life ( I know I read a lot into this but just let me- ok).

Then today Weekday Carnival showed her messy home and it felt good. I totally recognize myself in her saying ” This is reality. I just happen to be person who likes nice things, but truth is, that sometimes I just can´t do everything. ”

I totally believe in having a nice looking, cool home but still make use of  it. A home is not a museum and life is too short to be cleaning all the time.

You can show your messy photos of your home at her blog.

Hahaha! I totally see myself too! Two things: It’s amazing what you can do with macro while taking pics for your blog, and, at least it’s a mess filled with beautiful things, it looks better, doesn’t it?

HA HA!!!! You should send some messy pics to that reality site what I made:)) Looking good. And always when I clean I just throw everything into cabins and afterwords I feel a bit quilty, but it still takes about six months when i clean my wardrobe or kitchen cabins or ….. I could go forever:))

Mamma sa att hon trodde först att det var min garderob, sen läst att det var din.
“Precis samma typ av röra!” sa mamma.

Men varför ser andra människors oreda ändå lite mysig och härlig ut på bild?

Jenny svarar: Ja men eller hur!!! så känner jag med.

Isabelle, I really love you for this one. This is EXACTLY how I feel about the issue. The clean/messy house issue, I mean. With three little kids and quite a busy professional life I simply have to get to like chaos, though I truely hate it.
