Today and tomorrow I’m going to share some pictures of our home in the country. This is in no way a post to brag about us or what we have. This is to the glory of a great God who answered my ten-year prayer for a place we could call “ours” with enough room to entertain family, friends, strangers and God’s servants. In the nearly four months that we’ve lived here, we’ve already gotten to serve all of the aforementioned. It’s been so wonderful. This house is the Lord’s, and we desire to use it for His honor and glory, and it is with that heart that I share these photos with you today.
I placed these luminaries at the front walk…
|I placed about a cup of Epsom Salts in the jars, then added a tea light. The salts sparkle like snow.|
Step up to the front door…
|I love this doorbell ringer I found on clearance at Gracious Designs.
My sweet husband got it wired in before our open house!
I LOVE my rooster stained glass in the dining room window. My dad made it for me a good number of years ago. It gets the afternoon sun and is so pretty with the light pouring through it. It’s so cheerful and adds such a colorful spot in that room!
The Christmas touches I added in this room were in this corner – the wreath on the pantry door, the gingerbread garland in the window, and the greenery and “Merry Christmas” sign on top of the cabinetry. There’s a strand of battery operated lights up there, too (I failed to turn them on for the picture!).
Come back tomorrow for the rest of the “tour.” Thanks for stopping by!
I pray you’ll have a wonderful Christmas Eve preparing to celebrate our Savior’s birth!
