the fun stuff

tomorrow is our 5 month anniversary since closing on the house and at times i want to tear my hair out because i still feel so unsettled. but then i remember that i have two young kids (usually cause i hear them screaming) and that we have a life outside our house (work, ministry, friends, etc.). so then i just say, we'll have to get it all done before the baby comes. :)

but i want to share some of the things that keep me going when i am tired and ready to throw out my unpacked boxes. i love to make my house beautiful. it helps me feel in touch with my Creator. the beginning of "the hidden art of homemaking" by edith schaeffer gives a wonderful description of God as the first artist. i highly recommend it.

so the above photo is a shot of one of my dining room chairs, newly recovered with a beautiful rose fabric, up against the yellow wall of my dining room, framed by the red and white damask curtains we just hung this week. i adore this combination.

below is a shot of the chandelier hung above the landing on our stairs. it is visible from the downstairs hallway and basically everywhere on the second floor. i feel like it is the jewelery to finish an outfit. but the outfit is really still getting pulled together. i love the way the crystals cast a rainbow of colors and sparkle on the walls.

i'll be sure to share more of the fun stuff for inspiration to myself and others. love you all!
