31 Days of Creative Homemaking :: Day 7--A Pretty Little Corner

My husband recently spotted this glorious chair on the side of the road for free.  I have always wanted a pretty little sitting chair and this one was just perfect.  It took me awhile to settle on a place for it because this pretty little chair is actually quite gigantic.  But I finally found a place.

Please excuse my "sexy" book.  It is actually The Science of Sexy, a very good book that I love, on dressing for your body type but I realize in this photo it could look a little sketchy! 

I think that it is important to the heart of the home to have pretty little spaces.  It does not need to be magazine worthy but I think it is valuable to find joy in the beauty of your home.  Places to sit and read or journal so that your heart has a place to breathe.  

I have more of a tendency to be too concerned about the prettynness of my home to take care of other things but perhaps you are the opposite.  You might struggle with being consumed with the "must-do" of the home that you do not take the time to make it a pretty place for you and your family to enjoy.

And once you make that pretty little corner.  Enjoy it.  Do not just look at it.  Live in it.  Be home.  Spend time with your family.  Invite people in.
