The photo for this blog is so special to me because it shows one of my favorite “vintage” books…and the simple Christmas ornament always keeps me reminded of the real meaning of why we decorate and celebrate this time of year – the beautiful Reason of the Season – the birth of Jesus! The nail? Well, I see that and can’t thank Him enough for what He did..what He took so that I can be with Him forever. I never want to overlook His sacrifice again in my life. I actually keep that nail in our family room on a table next to a framed reminder of the power of prayer, too.
And that is why I created this one blog post…keep reading…more to come!
It’s Friday and Rip and I are working in a home together, getting it all “redone!”
This “new-u-fied home” (as Rip would say), is for a single mama and her 5 children, ages 12, twins age 8, 10 and 2.
While we have been working in her home, we’ve been reminded of our own home 2 years ago. We had purchased a 38 year old home that needed to be new-u-fied! So, … we got busy! One room at a time, and providing all the elbow grease and love needed to literally transform the new house into our new home!
Well, we were in the house 2 years ago and had not gotten to the kitchen yet, (and a few other rooms) but we were having SUCH FUN enjoying all the sights, sounds, and special touches of our new little home that we made this new video series. What was the goal? TO INSPIRE!
Bookmark this page – come back later and it’s our hope that even those this are all archived from 2 years ago, that we may all be reminded of the simplicity in homemaking that makes sense, especially now at Christmas time! So if you post photos of what YOU do this time of year in your home, then be sure to include the #CHRISTMASTIME and #myinteriorinspirations.
