Therefore...and other wordy words
I have been told I can be a bit wordy. I have even noticed it myself. It was brought to my attention again after I read the proof of the JB Knacker ad I sent to our local paper. I quickly whisked an email off to said local paper, hoping they would remove all the wordy words I had plunked into our ad before going to print...especially the word "therefore!"
Speaking of getting rid of the not-so-necessary, I believe Julie & I have truly edited the shop as we ready for this Saturday in our "Saturdays only January." JB Knacker looks like a wintry Scandinavian home w/ all its whites, neutrals and textures. We like it! But I must admit...I'm itching to get the shop a little more "wordy." I need more words like concrete birdbath and metal-topped work table and maybe some ironstone platter or butter pat verbiage as well as small painted table and chunky cake plate words. Oh yes, a noun like cupboard and an adjective like primitive would fit nicely in the front room as would ticking feather pillow. Did I tell you I love adjectives like funky, old, white, painted, chippy, retro, metal, rusted and vintage to name a few. Therefore, being wordy is a good thing, right?!
