4 Some of the Positives in Life

Happy Happy Happy New Year!  It's going to be a great year... right?!!  I tend to be a very positive person, so I like to think it will be.  Last year we were in the midst of major home renovations at this time, so it's definitely going to be less stressful this year!  Although stressful, (and I had to keep telling my husband - "it's going to be great") we have enjoyed updating our home and getting it to the casual, rustic style we like and are comfortable with.  We're getting there!

One of my favorite pictures from the holidays of our (newly bricked) double-sided fireplace (kitchen side) with newly painted mantle.  The new stone facade now matches the other (living room) side as well.

Being the positive person I am (or try to be!), I LOVE decor with inspirational or positive words and statements.  I'll be honest though, I was probably a little bit too obsessed with it this past Christmas and bought a few too many "making spirits bright" and "joy" word blocks and pictures ~ but I found a place for them (of course) and they looked great! :)  When you think about it, I guess it's not a bad thing to have too many positive statements around.

Diana and I both like to have encouraging and inspirational items available at the shop as well. You'll be able to find them throughout the entire store ~ on wood blocks, plaques, hooks, stitchery, and even jewelry. Uplifting home decor and jewelry just feels good (and they make wonderful gifts too).  A simple quote can give you a new outlook on any given day!

Nice reminders to see, read, and ponder (love the word ponder). :)  Think about a place in your home that you would like to see/read something positive each day. 

Enjoy your home, your life and promote happiness!

With Joy & Bright Spirits, Donna (& Diana)
