If you’ve seen my daughter’s room before then you know I’m making changes at a snail’s pace. I’m doing one thing at a time, slowly because I have a lot of other things going on in my life. I’d love to get it all done in one weekend, but so far, that just isn’t happening. One daughter just graduated, and the other one just moved out. We took a celebratory trip to Austin, and my mom came for a visit. I’ve also been spending a lot of time trying to eat more healthy and working out 4 days a week. I’m also trying to get to bed much earlier. In a word, I’m trying to take better care of myself. I don’t have any major health issues, and I want to keep it that way. I am also trying to live very intentionally, enjoying each day God gives me. That means that I don’t get as much done every day, but I’m okay with that.
Today’s post is a part of our French Country Friday series. There are some great blog posts linked at the bottom, so be sure to read all the way down to the bottom of the post.
Here’s what it looked like yesterday, below. I had too many chairs, so I moved some chairs out. I am purging some things because I felt like my house was getting cluttered again. (How does that happen?)
If you want to see how to make the curtains, CLICK HERE. The very next thing on my list is to paint the chests beside the bed. Last night I started painting the chests. Hopefully I’ll have a blog post on the chests soon.
I guess my takeaway for today is that it’s okay to take your time. Life happens. I know bloggers seem to magically get things done all the time. But they probably stay up all night to do it, and I don’t do that any more.
Today’s podcast episode is titled ‘Why you should rearrange furniture’.
If you’ve been following along, we created an online store for our podcast Decorating Tips and Tricks. That’s one of the things that has kept me super busy. We’re designing products that are sewn in the US. We have 3 sales a week, and the special pricing only lasts for a week. Yvonne of Stone Gable created the most adorable placemats for Independence Day entertaining. Check out how adorable they are when rolled with the navy ribbon.Then when you have them on the table, each one has a pocket for your flatware. I can tell Yvonne knows her way around a picnic table.
