What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

all i can say is that i look forward to the day my decorating choices are not limited by what my son can break/pull down/rearrange/shove into his nose.

your home is lovely joanne!

I am glad you did this. I know (hope) this move is just temporary, but for now it is home. Having been in your home here, I noticed a stark contrast in the pictures of your home there. Now it shows your personality!! Now, about your screen door... (just teasing!)
I remember when I packed up to live in China for a year by myself. Space was so limited and precious, but I made sure to tuck in some doilies and lace and little pictures I loved. The others laughed at first when they saw them, but it was my space. I saw so glad to have those touches of home. And it just so happened that my room seemed to be where people would gravitate to just hang out. Well, and eat whatever I had concocted. :)

Where did you get the little metal rack to hold the books and what is it? I love how youdecorate and was wondering if I could possible find something like that somewhere. Thanks! Jennifer

I know stuff is stuff, but after Hurricane Katrina destroyed everything we had below 6 ft., everything above 6 ft (including the attic) was spared. And all that I had left was so precious to me! Going through the attic boxes just brought tears to my eyes - it was all I had.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what you've done to the place. You have exquisite tastes.

The last picture looks similar to something I have that came from my grandpa's old grocery store called "Barney's Food Market." So fun! It was a baby food jar display. Each section was labeled with the different kinds of baby food. Maybe it is from an old grocery?

Andrea, The day will come. Promise!

Kimberly, Oh the screen door. I think "UGH" every time I see that sad little Indian and his pony.

Jennifer, It's a vintage find from the Paris Street Market in Denver a couple of summers ago. They are kind of hard to find--you may have to go on a treasure hunt through a bunch of antique stores. Which sounds like a lot of fun!
