Unrestrained And Often Silly

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Santa, Frosty & Nutcracker @ Hawaii Yacht Club

Nothing ever seems too bad,
too hard, or too sad when
you've got a Christmas tree
in the living room.
Nora Roberts

Clearing away clutter is
good for the soul, because
it allows your surroundings to be a
reflection of the person you are today,
not the person you were yesterday.
       Eleanor Brownn

 Clutter is anything that
does not support
your better self. Eleanor Brownn

Probably the reason we all
go so haywire at Christmas time
with the endless unrestrained and
often silly buying of gifts is that
we don’t quite know how
to put our love into words.
Harlan Miller

Love You,
   Pixie & Cloudia

I like that quote about clutter. And now I'm looking around and wondering what else I can toss or donate. Hmmm...

Mike said...

"Clutter is anything that does not support your better self."
Sooooooooo, all my "stuff" has a purpose!

Cloudia said...

Perhaps it does Mike. Perhaps it does! Thanks, Kay.
Deepak always my pleasure sir 🙏🏽

Pixie is saying that she doesn't allow any clutter on her bed (or in her apartment). If anyone says otherwise, she will sick her falcon friend on you.

Elephant's Child said...

That final quote is food for thought...

Adam Jones said...

That's a very cool looking Hawk.

Great quote, I am not a fan of kind of clutter! Cute shot of Pixie and I love the Raptor photo. Pretty sky and flower images. Santa and friends is cute!
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

I'm with Mike! :-)
Seriously, I just might need it!

William Kendall said...

Pixie thinks that is one big bird.

What wonderful quotes today. Although I do have a lot of stuff - it feeds my soul at times.

I'm spending more time putting my love into words. Thanks for the beautiful quotes. Hugs to you and Pixie!

Cloudia said...

Each of your comments is like a visit between us. So appreciated! Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend

I’m constantly trying to convince myself that my clutter is somehow necessary. And that it’s harmless since my chairs are all free of clutter and welcome one to sit in them, and my dining table is always free for placing a meal, and my kitchen counters … well, never mind.

best….mae at

The Santa pose looks feminine! The hawk or falcon looks so gorgeous!

Lovely at christmas time, love to Pixie and Cloudia.

Lovely images again! Decluttering is a difficult task but very satisfying once done.

Anni said...

Beautiful hawk!! Impressive image.
Have a terrific week ahead and thanks for linking up.

Joining you from Saturday's Critters! I think the quote about haywire at Christmas is spot on!
