I am a huge fan of Miss Mustard Seed. She offers so much inspiration and hope to those of us desiring to start a business! Watching how her business has taken off with a 'mustard seed' of faith has been incredible! I didn't make anything for this post and feel a bit inadequate that I even got the feature, because there were girls who really put some sweat into refurbishing some great furniture pieces! I am currently doing two, so I know how much goes into these submissions for Furniture Feature Friday! That said, I am so, so grateful! Click here to check out some great makeovers of furniture pieces! You will be inspired! Thanks Marian!
I was looking through all of the amazing furniture posts from last week and I found something unexpected. A furniture post that touched me...and made me teary eyed. So, while I generally highlight Frenchy buffets, frilly slipcovers and cool paint jobs, tonight, I am going to share a piece that spoke to me.
Christie from Three Pixie Lane shared a stunning secretary that she purchased to use as a space just for her to display pretty things.
...that of war letters written by our grandfathers. She has over 100 letters her grandfather wrote to his wife during WWII. When I saw the pictures of her letters, neatly stacked on this gorgeous piece of furniture, it reminded me of the time I spent reading, scanning, and carefully sorting my grandfather's WWII letters he wrote to his mother. He died last fall and I miss him dearly.
I love displaying family history in my own home and it is one of my favorite "tricks" to add richness to a space. People want to lean in and look at things that are old, personal and have lasted through generations.
Thanks, Christie, for letting us lean in and enjoy your history.
Thank you for being a keeper of that history.
