Feathering

Isn't it amazing how God created women to "nest"? It's been said that only a woman understands the difference between off-white and ecru. As a rule, women need to feather their nest - so to speak - to make the home warm and inviting - beautiful in their own estimation. Well, this weekend, I've been "feathering"! I have had several projects I've been wanting to do. Plus a friend and I went to an auction today. I bid and got my first auction item, ever! I was the high bidder for a card table. LOL! Then we went to T.J. Maxx and Tuesday Morning, my two favorite places to find bargains. You can't see it, but this flower container has roosters on it, which goes with my rooster kitchen - and the red geraniums go with the red in my kitchen! Friday, I went to Wal-Mart and got supplies to make a wreath for my front door. I love hydrangeas - and here it is! I got one new pillow and recycled an old into leopard!

My son, Cary, recently finished framing a painting Sara made for me. It is the scripture of one generation sharing with the next. I recovered pillows to go with the purple scheme.

On the adjoining wall, I have pictures of the next generation - mychildren.

I feel very good about my "nest" at the moment, very fulfilled.

Maybe you will be inspired to do a little "feathering" of your own!
