It must be my old age! I'm getting daring. Well, for me anyway.
After seeing so many gorgeous pictures of white drapes, white towels, white napkins, and white furniture, I've left my comfort zone and branched out.
My back porch now has a white drape. Dirt? Who cares. I can bleach that puppy every time it gets dirty, and the sun will bleach out anything I might miss anyway. It cost .75 cents, so it's not like I'm loosing a forture if it is ruined. I'll just go to a yardsale and find another!
White cloth napkins are now for everyday. I didn't make mine, though. I found them at a yard sale, 24 vintage white cloth napkins. .20 cents! If they get a spot, I just won't let it bother me. I'm sure I can find more.
And, if I don't, I can always make some of these beauties, like the Lazy Organizer did. I love the simple look.
No, white doesn't scare me. And, change doesn't scare me either. I'm learning to do what I want when it comes to decorating and life. Not what's practical, or inexpensive, just for the sake of being practical or thrifty. But to really find what I like and use what I like.
Posts like this inspire me to be more observant of myself, to discover what really brings joy to my everyday life. Like the arbor, and the order of the closet. Little reflections of design that mirror the creativity of my Heavenly Father, brought into the mundane parts of my everyday life.
That keeps my heart turned to Him. My thoughts always circling back to the way He would do things. That's what I want my house to be. That's what I want my life to be.
That's what brings me joy.
