The family and I recently had a discussion about our house...should it be decorated for 'company' or should it be arranged for how we live in it? For example...I do my sewing in the living room while we are all watching our shows together - on a card table with TV trays and such around me to hold the things I need....well if that is where I am going to sew all the time then maybe it should be a little prettier and a little more permanent!
Well that is my new space...just the beginning of changes around here - this weekend we tackled the family room and it looks great too! The family room is where all my flamingos are and I really want to show them to you - but the room is very dark and so far my photos haven't turned out well. I think I may have to enlist Madison and her new camera to do the job for me!
The consensus on decorating for us is - a little of both - pretty for company (and us!) and practical for how we live also.
Next we will deal with our classroom which, because Lane graduates from 8th grade this year, will become our studio - a place for all our combined art supplies. I'll let you know how that goes!
