I hope you’re all enjoying the changes here in my blog space. I wanted a simpler look. I’m sure it’s been a shock for some of you, as so many of you have said you liked my purply-gray background. But change is good, even if it’s only for a season.
I took some interior photos yesterday. These are my favorite kinds of photos, but first I would like to share this:
The arrangement of the rooms in our home is strange because space is at a premium. When our home didn’t sell in this horrible economy, we had to rethink what we were going to do. Our home is tiny! The truth of the matter is that we moved our bedroom into the front living room right after we took our home off the market. Strange, huh? Most people who have come over have loved it. I’ve draped the entire bedroom in white and it feels ethereal, but some people have said they couldn’t live like this. I understand their response. I don’t know how I feel about it myself. It’s brought a wonderful solution to our space issues, but it’s (really!!) different. I have days where it feels romantic and lovely, and other days when I’m not loving it. I’ve tried my best to make our house a home.
In my bedroom . . .
If you peek through this lace curtain past the chair you can see our white wall of curtains shielding the bedroom area.
We were even able to include this small sitting area in our living bedroom room. I’ve posted this photo before.
Here is a table that I found in my MIL’s garage. I asked for it and she generously said yes.
This table was going to originally hold a small stereo system, but after I painted it gray and gold leafed the crevices, I put it to better use, holding flowers.
The phrase, “I got lemons so I made lemonade,” has been my mantra for the past few years. I’ve come to realize that our happiness is based on our perception and willingness to accept a situation.
Why am I sharing this? Because I wanted to send a little encouragement out into blogland where it may be needed.
Have a great weekend!
