"People like us are always looking for the next thing to do to our homes. We just can't help ourselves. I once met a reader who told me she'd just "upgraded" every wastebasket in her house. In one day, all the utilitarian ones she'd bought over the years on the cheap were gone, replaced by pretty but not expensive ones. Her husband looked on, not sure why wastebaskets mattered so much, but to her, the whole house instantly felt much fresher and more together. I totally get it. I have no idea where this impulse to improve the nest comes from, but it's an important part of who we are. If I could play the violin, I would. If I could paint a picture, I would. My canvas is my home, and a brushstroke here and there is how I express myself."
