Less is More...

For sometime I have been trying to pull together the Master Bedroom.  I finally found a quilt I like and I have painted my headboard, and made curtains.  I have not been overly thrilled with the results.  In fact I have wanted to scrap the whole thing and start over.  Despite the fact that I can't do that do to budgeting, I also feel completely sick about the possibility that I wasted money on something I did not love.  I could not justify buying a new bedroom even if I had the cash to do so.  Determined to find contentment I prayed for a little help to know how to tweak things enough so I would feel welcome in my space.  I began pulling pillows from room to room and decided to just make the bed and live with it.  My littlest one came in and got up on my bed and knocked down a throw pillow or two.  I came back in and was amazed.  Apparently the unrest I was feeling about my room was that it was over accessorized with too many pillow patterns which resulted in chaos.  By leaving on a simple grey pillow brought in from the living room my eyes can now focus.  The room still needs a lot of help mind you, but just seeing how taking something out can add a new look to the room has inspired me to give this space another chance.  I'm also feeling blessed that right when I was praying for help,  E was in there tossing those pillows on the ground.  Who says He doesn't care about the little things.

  1. I have a friend who wants to make twin bedspreads with painters drop cloths, and personalize them for her grandchildren? But she is looking for dimensions and perhaps a pattern to work wit. Any suggestions? Thanks, Marnie
