So, it’s time to decorate this Shoebox a bit. Young Life has made me into a large vintage item person… you know, the house that hangs a wagon from the ceiling or multiple chairs or old hay forks. I love that look… but it takes awhile to accumulate things. Here’s the awkward space above my kitchen cabinets:
my Great Gramma Sebeck’s wash tub, drive in and closed signs from the red barn project, my Grandpa Sebeck’s fan from the 40s, a pound scale, and old crock, an old chicken feeder, an old egg scale from my parents, a vintage set of mini wooden bowling pins and ball, my old Fisher Price giraffe that’s too fragile to be ridden anymore even though Ry asks every blessed day, a red lantern from Target, a silver lantern that was a wedding present
Curt is much more of an art/picture person; I’m a quote person… I love words on paper, but that’s not always Hang It In Your House type of art, ya know? I spent some hard-earned money on etsy the other day and am waiting for these prints to arrive:
The Joy 8×10 will go in Ry’s room. Is it not the most perfect thing you’ve ever seen? The Texas print and Michigan print (not pictured) will go above our bed… on appropriate sides. And the home print will go next to our wood stove in the living room/kitchen/dining room. [clicking on the photos will take you to the shops that carry them]
I’m so ridiculously excited for this place to start taking on its own personality. Not that it doesn’t already have one… I mean, there are chickens running rampant outside and a cat sitting on top of the fence. But inside, the walls are a little bare. There’s a deer here, a deer there, and a few family photos in our bedroom. Not much else. Time for CHANGE!
What’s on your walls?
