The Pretty Room

I have a love of old, worn, pretty things. I like to think about where these things might have come from and the people that had these items. We have a room in our house called "The Pretty Room" it's really for us girls. The boys have their man-cave that reflects their love of baseball, and we have The Pretty Room. This week while I'm working on a new sewing project, and before I can show it to you, I thought I'd show you some fun things in this room. One of my favorite things is the verse on the beam it is Isaiah 40:8, "The grass withers and the flowers fade but the Word of our God stands forever." When I am in there, it reminds me of what's important in life. I love old screen doors. I wish we would still use them. We had a metal screen door when I was growing up. I can remember summers and the sound that door made when my brothers ran in and out to play. I like the sound the door made, a happy sound announcing the arrival of someone. I daydream about this screen door. Was it on a farm house? Or an old victorian with a wrap-around porch? Wherever it stood, I hope it made that happy sound for someone. I hope too, that they enjoyed Isaiah 40:8 as much as I do.


  1. Hi Renee,
    I found your blog through Dawn's blog. . . & I just wanted to stop & welcome you to blogging!
    I love your screen door! (That kind are hard to come by here in the Southwest!) I also love Isaiah 40:8. . . & I have wanted to have it painted over the windows in my studio. . . (after I get around to painting the studio. . .that is!)
    I'll be adding you to my blogroll - if you don't mind!. . . & I'm looking to your posts!
    xo, Bren

  2. Hi Brenda!
    Thank you for your encouraging words. Your blog is one I go to everyday! I recently ordered your Celebration fabric from Shabby Fabrics, before I saw your sale. I just love the patterns and colors you chose. How fun to design your own line! I hope we can see pics of your studio in transformation. I would feel blessed to be on your blogroll. Have a blessed day!
    Joyfully, Renee

I enjoy reading everything! hehe, I bet you never knew that, did you?
