Hello my friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday.
What a weekend. Our family went to Atlanta to meet up with our Buckets of Burlap friends for a couple of fun days and then to the funeral of a forty four year old friend.
Have you ever been to a funeral that caused you to look inwardly and do a heart and life check? This sweet friend’s funeral felt like a call to action. It felt like a time where we were being called to make sure to keep the things of God as our priority. We are to be about Kingdom business!! This lady was 100% about serving others and telling anyone she could about Jesus Christ.
On a much less important but still a fun note…I saw that there are some Christmas parties going on around here and wanted to join in.
I know a lot of us keep talking about keeping things simple, but I have to tell you that I truly have kept things simple in my home this year compared to years past.
I am always trying to soften and lighten my oak fireplace and thought the fabric garland might help.
I cut and strung scraps of burlap, white and lace and ended up with something that I really like.
Disclaimer…yes, I know the pillows are a fire hazard as is the wooden bench. It will all be moved before we start a fire.
I am really enjoying my much less busy Christmas décor this year. It is so much easier to look at and will be so much easier to put away when Christmas is over.
I also love, like I told you the other day, that a lot of my Christmas decorations will actually carry me into the winter months.
I am headed to some parties and cannot wait to see what all you guys are doing around your beautiful homes.
