I was reading Brenda's Sunday Afternoon Tea post, and it made me want to write this post. You see Brenda, and I have a lot of the same beliefs about our homes being havens for our families, our guests, and ourselves!
I believe that while we should not be obsessed with our homes, we should make our homes as special and wonderful as we can. I like to use thrifted silver, flowers, tea cups....
I also love to use old birdhouses and inexpensive plates like this red checked one.
This photo of the light over the sink in the kitchen was taken tonight. I love the ivy, the name photo, the beautiful wood trim that my husband put up.
Our home makes us happy. The things we have in our home, the photos, the books, the china, all work together to remind us of wonderful times together, and they continue to help us make new memories, to help us to reach out and welcome others into our home and into our family life.
I believe that as a believer our homes should be places of beauty and creativity, after all we are made in His image and He is the Creator of Beauty!
My home will not look like yours, and it shouldn't. Your home should reflect the interests and items that your family finds beautiful, fun, and that you want to share with others.
Isn't that great?
So what kinds of things do you like to surround yourself with?
