My living room is my favorite spot-
For years, I've had a wooden bookcase in one corner-
It's been fine and I've tried many vignettes
to add warmth to the space-
I even attempted a big makeover with mirrors at one point-
a little reflection never hurt anyone!
But, the time has come to say goodbye bookcase-
Yesterday, we moved a small china cabinet from
my mom's house into the space-
It's got a light and no china will grace it's shelves-
Of course, I have already set it up-
what's a girl to do with a "new" piece of furniture!
Make it feel welcome of course-
I may change it up down the road-
a little paint never hurt anything, right?
But, for now, it sits proudly in a coveted spot-
all I can think of is my mom when I look at it-
she didn't love it but it worked in her home for 45 years-
so, it will now work in mine!
Over the next few weeks I will be adding more of "mom's things" to our home- little pieces that warm my heart and remind me of her beauty and spirit-
It's all about the sentiment...
Take care, gotta fly-
