Kathleen @ Faded Charm
is the wonderful hostess for this White Party!
Recently I had a dear friend visit who is amazing at decorating...I moan and groan when I walk through her home. It is just plain lovely...things match, put together like a professional decorator would put things together. Furniture that is just lovely...not over the top...just lovely.
Nothing matches...or rarely does in my home. And I seem to like the mismatched look.
I think God must have made me that way too. He gifted me with a musical gift...writing music...playing the piano at church and I love it. I also love to decorate, sew....plant flowers...getting my hands filthy dirty with mud! But when people come over to visit they are surprised to see me muddy and dirty...a little sweaty...compared to what I look like at church.
But haven't you found that most things that you love come with hard work? A little sweat? And flowers come after you have dug around in the dirt...pulling weeds...getting rid of rocks.
My life seems to be a like a garden at present....
Lots of hard work....
weed pulling(getting rid of bad attitudes)
watering (replenishing my soul with good things)
and then waiting(for God to answer my prayers)
And ....slowly I see little flowers come forth
The harvest...finally shows up
And it is beautiful...
... the things I bring into my home are for the most part...mismatched...some old...some new...
All cherished and loved....
I love pies...real ones...fake ones....and I LOVE little play stoves! hahahaha....I'm not sure why...my heart swoons at a toy stove!
I love stitched things and I usually have a stitching project going....
I found these little plates at Salvation army with the sweetest little kitchen items imprinted on them.
Everything here from thrifted stores....my little treasures....that I love. My home has been put together lovingly...mismatched..but lovingly!
I'm glad you came by for a visit to my farmhouse
