Ribbons and Lace And Natural Decor...
Edmund Blair Leighton, Ribbons and Lace
Those little extra touches...
Homemakers and Home keepers have really been given
The secret touch for creating a cozy home!
It is found in those little touches we add to each room.
A lovely picture centered on the wall can pull a room together!
A mirror placed on a short wall can make the room appear larger.
A pretty green plant looks alive,
A vase of dried flowers can perk up a corner.
Window coverings make a room feel safe and cozy.
Now, Some ladies enjoy frills and ribbons
Others enjoy a more natural setting.
I have used pine cones in a basket with a candle in the center.
Natural earth colors to match wood floors.
We can use things we find in nature to make a centerpiece
for a table or on our mantels.
We do not have to spend a ton of money to find lovely
treasures that can make your home special.
Do you think of your HOME as your haven?
Is it the place where your heart takes great pleasure,
loving and taking care of those you love?
I urge you to make the time to change things around,
in your home and to decorate it in a way that brings an
atmosphere of comfort and peace.
We can never underestimate the benefits of
keeping your home clean,
And free from clutter.
We always think of Spring cleaning;
But I have always tried to incorporate a fall cleaning also!
We are all about to get busy with fall and winter holidays.
And during the winter months our windows are closed up tight!
So before the real cold weather sets in,
Let the fall crisp air come in and freshen the air.
And maybe try to change your rooms around,
Try changing a picture on a wall.
Wash your throw blankets!
Purchase a new throw rug for a room.
Try to spray paint something to give it a refreshed finish.
Enjoy your home and let it be a place of pleasure,
To your senses and to your eyes.
Home is where your heart is...
