Simplicity

 I love simple days.  I love not having a to-do list looming over my head.  I love being able to sit on the floor and play with my kids without the tugging of chores pulling me away.  There will always be something that needs to be tended to.


There will always be piles waiting to be put away.


I have been working on bringing color into my house.  My house is full of beautiful earth tones.  The issue is that my taste is moving towards cool and bright tones.  I am in need of mish-mashing patterns, vintage fabrics and colors.  I found this pretty floral print at the thrift store last week.  I made it into a pillow and I love the feeling I get when I look at it sitting there with my twig pillows.  


Before I had kids, I would walk into friends' homes who had kids and cringe at all the baby stuff they had in their living rooms.  We have a living room outfitted with baby stuff now.  Periodically I get to put it away and have a tidy, pulled-together living room, but then another blessing arrives and out it comes again.  I don't mind it so much anymore.  So many smiles happen in this area.  


Simple words on paper.  They can make such a statement.

  1. I agree, there is always something to do around the house. I simply forget my list, and go take my kids on a picnic or something.

  2. I am right with you about cringing at houses of people with kids. Now I've had three kids in four and a half years, and my house is the worst of all! I'm learning to view it as signs of living and fun but sometimes I miss the order and organization.

    1. drea, you should! i bought a (white) foam wreath form and an old book from the thrift store and started gluing. It took a few hours, but I did it while I watched a lifetime movie. ;)

  4. They are the best - confess I find it easier if we have a simple day in the park as there is then no way to get distracted by house stuff, Alice @ Mums Make Lists
