useful or beautiful

“Have nothing in your house that
you do not know to be useful,
or believe to be beautiful.”
– William Morris

  1. I say leave out the beautiful part, and have only that which is useful, but only if it is also beautiful.

    Tina: on another note: The 82st Garage that had all the fantastic posters… has remodeled. I was in the city last week, and alas. It was being painted. Green. The historic posters – gone, without a trace. :-(

  2. thought that was a no-brainer!

  3. hi tina
    so true. yet that leaves us with the question of what to do with things that are given to us as, e.g. as presents, that we neither believe to be beautiful nor useful .. ;-)
