Little by little....
each day a little more...
things are shaping up.
It is HOME.
Every single day I am humbled
that I have a new (old) home.
Every single day in my prayers I say
"Make this house a home...
a place where everyone is welcome...
a place of joy..."
These are pictures of the
(not-so-formal) living room.
I like to call it the "Room-without-a-TV".
I am not a formal person,
so this room will never be
I bought the new couch for the den...
but decided for the time being to keep the
ratty-old couch in the den.
It looks ugly, but feels wonderful.
So I put the nice-new-couch in here.
|My son Fielding and daughter-in-law Kelly gave me the PB clock platter for my birthday. ....And there are those little urns that I use EVERYWHERE and have blogged about many times.|
It is a huge room and one that we plan to
"find" things for.
There will be no great shopping trips to
fill it with furniture,
but we know we will "know" a piece
for the room
when we see it.
|The armoire is filled with sentimental pieces from lots of people and places. The bulls-eye and half bulls-eye are from our great old house in Kansas.|
In the meantime, it looks nice as-is...
especially with the newly furbished
dark hardwood floors!
I do not care for the blue paint,
but repainting this room is on the
"yellow" priority sheet.
(We have divided up our 'wants and needs'
into three categories:
red-needs done a/s/a/p
yellow-when we get around to it.)
In the meantime I will continue
working on the red's on that list....
