Series help me focus. I’m a pretty scatterbrained person, so it’s good for me to have something that helps me focus. So today we’re starting a new series for Thursdays. No longer will I wake up on Thursday mornings and wonder what in the world to post about. I’ll wake up instead, look at my messy home and wonder who in the world I think I am trying to write something about homemaking! But, alas… I’ll have a focus.
I read some great blogs about homemaking periodically. Their authors are some of my homemaker heroines. These ladies post beautiful tutorials about cooking, decorating, cleaning, etc. They post lovely pictures of tablescapes, delicious recipes, and reviews of cleaning products. And they show you how to restore old furniture, turn vintage linens into curtains, and decorate with twigs from your shrubbery. One of my very favorites is Yvonne at StoneGable. So if you’re looking for that kind of post on homemaking, I suggest you head on over there. It will be well worth the visit. Yvonne is a lovely, godly woman who happens to also know how to set a beautiful table, clean your fine linens, and cook up a crock of French onion soup. I adore her and her stunning blog!
But that’s not what you’ll get here. I make no pretense about being a talented decorator, a great cook, or the crafty type. Yes, I can sew and cook and decorate pretty well, but only because I follow the directions and inspirations of people like Yvonne. And my cleaning skills are not the most desirable either. I haven’t gone green yet (gasp!) and my favorite cleaning method is the shove-everything-into-a-closet-and-make-things-look-tidy method. This is a cleaning tactic that buys you a great deal of time until the closet virtually explodes and then you simply take an hour or two to clean it out. I personally think it works.
So if I’m not offering cooking tutorials, tablescapes, pointers for cleaning green, or photos of my latest decorating venture, what exactly am I inviting you to each Thursday?
If you join me for Build My House Thursdays, you’ll get my take on building a Psalm 127 house.
