What Houzz contributors are saying:

I was recently at an estate sale, walking around a lovely home. I thought, “Wow, you really can’t take it with you.” Part of me was sad to see these beautiful pieces left behind … and for a moment I wondered why one should even have them in the first place. But at the same time, I could see that this family had surrounded themselves with beauty and comfort. They had filled their lives with beautiful memories, and they had the things to prove it. At that moment I saw both sides of the issue clearly — the need to hold on to the past and the need to release it.
