I'm working with what I got and that can be a very positive thing. How? Some days that's harder to answer than others. It can be really frustrating. Some days I struggle. But contentment is important. And it's especially important if you want to welcome people into your home.
I want people to come into my house and feel loved. I want them to be comfortable enough to let down their hair and be who they really are. I want them to feel content but I have to set that atmosphere myself.
It forces me to be resourceful. To think of old things in new ways. That's a good exercise for any artist. And saving money is good. I'm even starting a garden.
I want to be thankful for all I have. I want to teach my son to be thankful. As little as I may have, there are others with much less. I have a lot to be thankful for.
So this will be our gathering place for sharing and inspiration. Whether you have a small fortune to spend on your home endeavors, or just enough to buy a few things at the thrift store, I hope you will find something that inspires and encourages you. If I post something that is not my original idea, I'll post a link to the site where I found it.
And I'll let you know how that garden goes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to kill it.
