Loving Our Calling

Finding joy in the little things of life. I found this little creamer at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago for 39 cents!!! It just love it! It is cold and raining here in Alabama this week, which means lots of mud...no snow to cover the yuck! During the winter most things here are several shades of brown mixed in with the evergreens. BUT...we can make our homes full of sunshine by doing simple little things, having a good attitude and SMILING!!! Olivia picked some herbs and these paper whites (the only ones in bloom) form her little garden. Then we added a few greens and pansies in a juice glass to brighten the living room a bit. I love making my house a home. The atmosphere can be nasty outside, but it can be a beautiful, sunny day inside when we are homemakers that love our calling.

I love using different things for vases. It is so much fun. I never thought of a creamer though. Thank you for the idea!

Thanks Mrs. Taylor. We have a small house so finding little things to add a little life helps!
