#561 Knick Knacks have a place and purpose in your life








We all have many Knick knacks in our house. What I don’t look forward to each year is spring cleaning.  Spring organizing and Knick knacks go hand in hand.  It’s all well and good to have your gorgeous Knick Knacks, but Spring Cleaning means it is time to reorganize yourself, to give your home a thorough scrub and to clear up the clutter.  
I was reading an article the other day that people guard their Knicks knacks like Gollum with the damn ring. and unfortunately that is me.  My Knick knacks are stored in cupboards or some high up so the cat won’t knock it down.  Items like figurines, miniature tea sets, furniture, mechanisms, and wood carvings.  If it can fit in a shelf, I’m sold.


Even though my mother and some family members dislike knickknacks because of the potential clutter and dust (but we won’t hold it against them), I didn’t grow up having any about the house, and just love them.  I’ve somehow managed to slake my little obsession by having a little piece here and there and they are remnants of my travels, my life and some are sentimental to me.  


What I love the most and treasure immensely are my items from Indonesia and from my travels.  I love African timber knickknacks. The figurines are representative of their culture, and are masterfully done. From beautiful carved timber bowls to tiny huts to fishermen in a boat, crafts and delicate embroidery the possibilities are endless. Most of my Knick knacks were affordable, are locally-made ornaments and most from Indonesia, they are special.
I love the fact that someone has spent so much time crafting and designing the delicate features and the hours spent on making that little Knick knack to be perfect and ready for buying.


One of our second life designers have been carefully crafting their way towards some gorgeous items called “Paint your Life” which are available now at Shiny Shabby, this being our own Natacha Haroldsen from her store “Knick Knacks”.
