"Dear Husband, I feel as if I need to spend some more money on our little home. What? Oh, no, it's not anything we need. Just, you know, cute stuff for our walls. What? Oh, yes, I like the stuff already on our walls, I just want different stuff."Now, even I know that it is a little unreasonable. Just because I feel like nesting does not mean that my house is undecorated... I just want to change it all! Obviously, that's not happening anytime soon, because last time I checked, our budget does not have an unlimited "Nesting" category.
In an effort to recognize this and, in a sense, "count my blessings," I planned to do a post with pictures of the little things in my house that I already love and where I've already nested. You know, because I'm always doing posts about what others need and that really is how we try to live our lives--recognizing how blessed we are and how much we can give.
I found TWO WHOLE THINGS to take pictures of! That's good, right? I mean, we are incredibly blessed, but my house is kind of messy (in my opinion), and so there wasn't much to photograph for today.
However, to stay true to my efforts, here are two small things that I do like in my little abode:
These are hanging over my kitchen sink (which I could not get a picture of due to the dirty dishes). And yes, they're fake plants. So many people want to touch them to check. Sorry that you must resist that urge.
The nightstand in the guest bedroom. It's nothing special, but I love Paris and hydrangeas. So, just kidding, it is something special.
Hey, I never said that this was a decorating blog. It clearly is not! But "nesting" has been SO overwhelming my thought life lately, and I thought it might be something you guys think about, too! If it is, how do you control the URGE?
Tomorrow, we're back to the new blog series on My Journey.
