At this time of year there is much focus on the giving of gifts. It’s a wonderful, fuzzy feeling you get when you see someone you care about opens a gift you put time or thought into. However, I honestly, wish people would be in this mindset all year through, don’t you? Just think of what a better world it would be if we did. Today, we’re having a Christmas Finding Home celebration to keep that spirit alive.
A month has flown by since my family and I launched our Finding Home program and we couldn’t be more excited to be back at it with two new chapters. In my last post about this program, I shared we did a triple gift delivery of three furniture pieces to three different deserving families. This time, I’m not only sharing the happy ending of two more of those three stories, but inviting you to the beginning of Finding Home Episode 2.
In my last update, I shared the story of the blue chest of drawers delivered to one deserving couple. Today, I’m proud to share with you the other two stories from our program beginning.
Today’s the day! I feel like a kid that’s been waiting to open a BIG birthday present, but instead I’m getting the sheer joy of giving presents to others. My family and I launched our Finding Home program a just over a week ago on my birthday with the intent of doing more for others. Join with us as we share our triple gift for the wrap up of our program launch.
In case you missed the original post about the Finding Home program, head over to catch up and even nominate someone you think is a fit. This chest of drawers above as originally seen in this post, was one of my favorite hand-painted pieces. It was chosen to be the first of, hopefully, many gifts to those who
“‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” – the words of Jesus from Acts 20:35 that I have heard throughout my life and wholeheartedly agree with. Nothing can compare to the joy that can be found in seeing someone delight in sacrificial love. Have you ever had that blessing bestowed upon you? I may not have been blessed with riches, and that is beyond fine with me. However, one thing I’ve always asked God that I have enough that I can share with others. My friends, today is all about Finding Home.
Have you ever had a longing in your heart to do something to make a difference in a BIG way. I kind of eluded to my desire in my New Beginnings post I did a few weeks back. I have other dreams that can not be acted on as of yet as I see God still working things out. However, one heart-felt leading that I did get was to
You gotta love the times when you can get together with your friends and do the things you love. Today is that day for my Trash to Treasure gals and me. We adore creating projects to inspire you and are eager to share our handiwork for this month’s fun. While you will see their work in a bit, today I’m sharing the second table from my curbside haul. This rusty gem is about to become an upcycled farmhouse tray. Oh yeah!
How often do you find yourself in a position to do an amazing thing for someone else? Maybe it’s just sharing a meal, or carrying groceries, or even taking care of a bill for someone. Whether BIG or small, all you do to show love to someone else really matters. Countless times I’ve been the recipient of someone else making time for me. It doesn’t go unnoticed and I yearn to pay it forward and go as BIG as I can. Daring to be different and showing love pays back tenfold. I’m sharing from the heart today of God’s grace in recent days.
Do you ever make a mistake with a project and want to just throw it out the door? Well, I do make mistakes and this time, particularly, I couldn’t throw it out. It’s wood! So instead of burning this wood round that gave me fits, I decided to turn it into something new. Check out how I created a DIY harvest time sign for the beginning of our autumn season.
Truth be told, I broke this thing when I was building a pedestal table out of a broken hall tree. You can read all about that HERE. What happened was when I was tapping the top on, I
It’s that time again! The second Tuesday of each month some of my blogger friends and I get together to present to you our latest Trash to Treasure makeovers. It’s certainly one of my favorite times and hope it is for you too! Today’s project is this handmade luggage I found during our spring city cleanup. I’ve been aching to turn it into the vision I had of a Mid Century nightstand. I can’t wait!!
Oh what fun it is to be with friends! Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday where my blogger gals and I get together to share our latest makeovers and creations with you to INSPIRE. What you see below is my focus of today’s post – you will see my friends’ posts in a bit. My good friend, Mandy, spotted this entire set on the curb and claimed them for me. Woot! Therefore, you are in for a dining set makeover.
I will be honest that when Mandy sent me the picture of the chairs that she had found asking me if I wanted them…I hesitated. Why? Well, if you’ve followed me for long, you know that I have undoubtedly sworn off
