Our room


Today I am tackling our bedroom.  I am cleaning it and rearranged a little bit.  When Tim gets home he is going to help me hang 2 wall mounted reading lights that we got a long time ago from Ikea.  We’ve used them above our bed in the past and they worked out great so I know we will like them. 

I am borrowing Timmy’s new camera so I can take some pictures to share with you!  I’ll post them a few at a time.  Today and tomorrow I will share parts of our room.

This is a little silver lamb that Tim bought me recently when we were out and about in Phoenix.  It is a music box (it doesn’t open though) that plays Mary had a Little Lamb.  I am keeping it on my makeup table to I can see it all the time.  I really like it a lot.  It has a sweet sound too.

This is where my love of lambs comes from:

Bellybutton (T’s) , Lambie (mine) and one of T2’s puppy stuffed animals.  Thanks for running back in the store to get that for me, Mom!  Love you!

Our dressers are pushed together. We got the framed photo at an art show in Indiana.  The photographer’s name is James Allen French.  He does a lot of macro shots.  He asked us if we wanted to know what it was and I said “No!  Don’t tell me!” because I think it makes it that much more interesting.   On the left is a silver bowl with my new “nature collection” in it (pine cones, sea pods, feathers, leaves, rocks, etc) that I’ve been picking up on our walks.

This is a Ganesha statue that we got in Scottsdale at an Indian-owned store called Tara Home that ended up going out of business.  (There is still one more shop open in California) I found the store due to reading a book authored by the store’s owner that I really liked called “Altar Your Space.”  Below is the Ganesha symbolism chart and the link to the store and book.  I later found out that with Ganesha, the more arms the better!

Go to the “Collections” section and look at their beautiful interiors!  I’ll probably do a whole post on it sometime because I love the  vibrantly colorful, yet peaceful style so much!

Still to come…my makeup table, the TV area, bathroom and closet. 

 

Some quotes for today:

Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.  It is the place of confidence.  It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts.  It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule.  ~Frederick W. Robertson

It’s not about finding a home so much as finding yourself.

Where thou art – that – is Home.  ~Emily Dickinson

We spend a lot of time at home so I make an effort to make it a place we want to be and feel comfortable.  Nothing in this house is as special to me as my family though.  I cannot think of home without thinking of my Tim’s. 

I wish my family would be able to visit us though.  We love Arizona but I’m missing everyone a lot and missing the “home” that is Indiana.  Especially today. 

I can’t wait to spend some time with my sister Angie and my nieces Alyssa and Aubrey and nephew Rocco.   Alyssa’s high school graduation is coming up but I hope to see them before that. 

Hope you are all having a wonderful evening in your homes!

Don’t forget to post comments!

Thinking of you,
