Day 114 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project was full of creativity and cleaning. After hearing a message about how “God’s Got This”, I felt encouraged about some relationships struggles and remembered haters hate because that’s what they do. If I’m their target, or you are, we’re probably doing something right that drew their attention to us in the first place. So rather than letting it stop us, if we let Him, God will use it to jump start us to do even greater things. He really does have this – our hopes, dreams, fears, families and careers.
Bolstered by hearing this simple but profound truth, I set about taking pictures to post this week and showed my home some TLC, inside and out, during the process. Since my home is my sanctuary and takes such good care of me, I love doing things for it to make it feel pretty and cared for as well. Often, the purchase of a new item or reimagining of one, causes me to have to rearrange some things to find a place for it.
That was the case today with a tulip lamp I purchased for another purpose (my She Storage Space, but that’s another post). When my attempts to make the lamp fit the space I’d intended it for fell flat, I thought of moving it to the dining room, which doubles as my office. And while the lamp didn’t work on the dining room table, a little artful rearranging of my small buffet table created a lot of magic.
I was so pleased with the results of my rearranging that I spend the rest of my Sunday tweaking nearly every room in the house, including putting all the furniture, plants and decor back on the front deck (our Jack of All Trades removed everything to re-stain the front yesterday but neglected to put anything back…). Most spaces got cleaning and camera love too.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick who works hard enough that you wouldn’t think I’d enjoy spending all day Sunday tweaking my home, I loved it. As much as I love blogging about a gooseneck tulip lamp, tweaks to spaces and sprucing up the place…My home is a place of beauty, comfort and function, and just as I want it to inspire those who reside here, I want to do the same with those of you who read about it here. I hope you enjoy what I share as you stop by to visit. Come again soon!
What piece, new or old, has inspired you to tweak, spruce up or both at home or in your office? Which one can?
Be savvy & chic,
