Collection of stuff on my shelves

I’ve recently started going through all my belongings and getting rid of items that don’t have meaning or don’t make me happy. This seems like an obvious thing to do, but I was surprised to learn how many of my possessions just didn’t have a place or meaning in my life but still took up space in my home. I’m slowly culling through everything, and the result has been incredibly satisfying: shelves full of pretty, fun things that make me happy.

For example, the shelf above, which contains the following:

  • A mounted photo from the ’80s of my mom, my dad and me.
  • Two glass dishes from my grandma, which I use to hold jewelry.
  • Two random gnomes, given to me as gifts years ago. (I love gnomes. Not ironically.)
  • My first Christmas ornament — Snow White — which sits out all year.
  • A wooden jewelry box brought back from Syria by my friend Raja.
  • An empty bottle of Crystal Skull Vodka, which I obsessed over for so long and finally received as a Christmas present this year. I’m going to fill it with glitter.
  • A birthday flower lei.
