A Delightful Home

Spring Patio II

I was out shopping last night with Matthew (18). He brought me to a place right nearby, in town. It had discount goods that were great for decorating the home. I found pretty bath mats with a matching shower curtain. I also bought a couple of small lamps. I even bought a $2 wall plaque that was so pretty! It is burgundy and has artwork on it that says, "Laundry Gathers Here." Can you guess where that will go? In my laundry room! I will look at it as I hang clothes on the line, out our second floor window. I can just imagine the warm spring days and the pleasant morning work of doing laundry while enjoying the fresh, clean air.

When we got home, I offered to pay John (13) to help me with some work. He was looking for ways to earn money and was eager to help. I had him throw out all clutter, empty shampoo bottles, etc in our bathroom. Then we set up the shower curtain and mats and made it look lovely!

Next, I took the new lamps and put them downstairs in the large playroom. They look so pretty. Each lamp only cost $6. I was thrilled.

When you buy a couple of simple, new things and bring them home, there is a tremendous motivation to clean and organize and make everything at home look delightful!

That is so bringing in something ever so small and simple can make such a difference in how we see our home. So glad the Lord blessed your home with some wonderful items (and at great prices...I LOVE THAT!). Blessings to you!
