I think that I spelled those wrong but you get the idea!
So is your house filled with nick nacks or do you like things streamlined and clean looking?

I used to have a ton of nick nacks and I got sick of looking at the 'clutter'. I have gotten rid of tons of things. I figure the less to dust the better! I don't have much nick nacks now but I have soooooo many pictures everywhere! I just can't bear to take them down. I was thinking of making an entire wall in my living room FILLED with pictures (got the idea from that commercial for sticky back photo paper). What do you think? Weird or interesting? Ok, that is off topic-sorry!LOL!

I have a few nick naks but I like to keep it pretty simple and uncluttered.

I like my stuff as long as it is classy and matches the rest of the decor. I definitely don't like a room to look bare but I prefer to do my space filling with pictures, candles, and plants.

I love knick knacks. I used to have collectiosn of collections. I've gotten rid of a lot since I got married, but I still have all my Precious Moments and my cocker spaniel Stone Critters. They're in the extra room. My new thing is Willow Tree. But I only have 5 of those, so it's not too bad. I'm trying to un-junk the living room.

I have made a bunch of my knick knacks. I loved having them out, but I didn't want them to get broken, so now they are not.

I'm getting to be more minimalistic. Even the things I paint myself end up in boxes because even though I like making them they don't really go with anything.

We're really into Asian and modern stuff right now though and that's pretty minimalistic.

I'm trying to keep my nick-nacks at a minimum...the more I have the more I'd have to dust.

I don't like a lot of clutter. I like Boyd's Bears and have a few to go with my patriotic thingies.

I have a few things out that go with my theme but not over the top knick knacks. Just like to keep it simple.

I put most of my knick knacks away. Too much clutter -- too much dusting, I agree. I do have a box that has some of my favorites packed up, but for the most part, I try to keep it simple. Easier to slide around a few things on dusting day.
