Well, this isn't seasonal. Spring cleaning-- dusting and window wiping-- that's seasonal. Ripping things off the walls, that isn't so much a requirement of the season.
I am free-- free of the ugly chintz swag drapes in the living room. I may not love my Contemporary California architecture, but I no longer have to balefully notice those pastel pink and green things in the living room. I know they were expensive, and at some point in time, even tasteful. But they have never been, in this world, reflective of the tastes of my husband or myself. And now, despite having purchased adequate replacements, they are gone.
And I am fine with that!
If you also felt the anti-love for the swags, gimme a comment!
