Just about every room in our house has a nook for the little ones. This nook sits diagonally across from our fireplace. The front parlor is our music room, our dance room, reading room - anything you want it to be room.
I took a few snapshots after tiding up the girls Little House in the Corner. I love all these little do-dads that I have gathered along the way - five years of setting up house for the little ones. Lucky girls, I'd say.
I was inspired to freshen their corner a bit from this cool Mama - she wrote a great post about toys and I love her corner. And oh how I drool when I read this blog - her little nooks in her house are gorgeous. She has two very lucky girls too! It is ok for me to want and own pretty things - that is part of the beauty of life - but it is even more beautiful to love what you have.
My new mantra has progressed from "I am enough" to "We have enough - and it is beautiful.
I been also thinking about this too; My rich is your poor, my poor is your rich. After learning that there is 44,000 children in Philadelphia living in poverty - my material wants have waned quite a bit.
So as we start to settle into winter in our new home (We have only been here four months) I feel less pressure to have the house tied up in a little red bow and be our perfect little home. Perfection takes time - gathering is much more rewarding than filling up a home. Donnie wrote a good post about this subject - except for her is about a Christmas tree.
I am grateful for all the bloggers who inspire me. Life would be so different without you all.
