I am linking up to Thrifty Chicks “SHOW US YOUR BATHROOMS”
How can such a small space take so long to tweak lol! I think the older I get I’m loving the quote “less is more” lol! I’ve been wanting one of these sweet t.paper holders for a while & 5o% off was a good time to act on it lol!
this old oil can came out of my husbands granddads old barn,I love it filled with the multicolored eucalyptus
I can not tell you how I love this picture,when I first saw it at an antique shop I fell in love with it, the dog brings back fond memories of my dads coon hunting days & the book touched my love for reading& can you believe the vender let me have it for less than ten dollars!
off & on we’d come across antique band aid boxes, perfect for my primitive little shelve I’ve had my eye on this valance seems like forever, finally one day while in Lowes I said today you go home with me lol!
I picked up this little braided rug while visiting my brother-n-law this past Thanksgiving , adds a sweet touch to the bathroom, who can remember beating a big ole braided rug with a boat paddle or a broom? lol! we did! mom would throw it across the cloths line & have us beat the dust out of it lol! so here’s my little bathroom, there’s still a few little tweaks to be done but I like what I’ve gotten done so far
I’m too busy to keep getting into things but I do anyway lol! so I’m behind in posting pictures as I’m out the door again to take my van to be checked as the hood keeps popping up & it still leaks from when the tornado took it’s toil on it, so be sure to come back for the reveal of this great mystery post

when I read this it makes me think of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31
we can live in a house but a home is what we make it,I can remember when in the beginning when we’d rent a place,I could never make it my own because first of all it wasn’t my own & limited to what all you can do & knowing that you’d be leaving one day, but when we bought that first house & it began to become home, there was a sense of belonging, the overwhelming joy of knowing we could paint, hammer, anything we wanted to make it our own
the virtuous woman is a good example of loving our home & making it our own
Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies.
Proverbs 31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
Proverbs 31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Proverbs 31:13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
Proverbs 31:14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
Proverbs 31:15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
Proverbs 31:16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
Proverbs 31:17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
Proverbs 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise [is] good: her candle goeth not out by night.
Proverbs 31:19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
Proverbs 31:20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Proverbs 31:21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household [are] clothed with scarlet.
Proverbs 31:22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing [is] silk and purple.
Proverbs 31:23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
Proverbs 31:24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth [it]; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Proverbs 31:25 Strength and honour [are] her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
Proverbs 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.
Proverbs 31:27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her.
Proverbs 31:29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Proverbs 31:30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Proverbs 31:31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
-she loves her husband, she loves cleaning her home, cooking, she sews, she blesses people with the works of her hands, she is always available for advice,she is a caregiver, she is a prayer warrior, she’s a gardener,notice in these scriptures how she blesses others as she is blessed
whatever stage we are in,renting or buying,we can strive to be like the Virtuous woman for as long as Jesus abides there ,call it home
