"I can't imagine a house without books." Well said, Mardel.

We, too, are drowning in books, yarn, fabric and toys at Chez Badmom. The worse part is, Iris and I are allergic to dust and mold. We live by the beach. The beach is damp. Dust mites and mold spores abound. The stuff diet is an ongoing project at our house.

I fantasize about living in a minimalist Asian home. Or, like my cousin in Sapporo, I can let the stuff pile up everywhere except in the tatami room. She slept in it and piled stuff on her western bed in her western bedroom. ;-)

Please do not think you are alone ~ fabric and books are me! You can tell what I love the minute you walk up the steps into my apartment...there are two huge bins of fabric sitting outside the fabric closet, a wall of books, and a mess of magazines on the coffe table. Not sorted and placed neatly for me, no just the way they were dropped - isn't that a homey touch! *LOL* And then there is the sewing memorabilia and the sewing machines that I have used as tables. Personally I don't believe that there is a right or wrong way to decorate your abode but that whatever it contains should reflect you!

Like Linda, I thought I could have written this post. The competing piles (of COURSE mine are more important ;)!), the yarn, the fabric, and books in every room ... except for the minimalist furnishings, this is my house too! Interesting to find one common thread between us, and see it split into more ...

I am glad to hear that some order has been restored to the files! I know you were nearly insane from the disorder and the boxes. I will say that I am like you on this matter -- I could quite happily live in a library or bookstore, provided there is adequate storage for my yarn and clothing. Nevermind the kitchen! Have a wonderful visit with DSD, and I will see you next week.

Yarn, books, and fabric!!! Wow does that sound familiar. I did a double take when I read your post because most of it could have been written by me. My house is old and filled with antiques, so there are no minimalist delusions, but my vices are definitely yarn, books, and fabric.
