Not In The Magazines -- Or Pinterest
Mismatched. colorful. Artwork hung here and there and musical instruments here and there and the old table that was my sisters and then mine and it is too small and covered in paint and scratches and old. And the chairs are old school school chairs that my dad found in a shed. And bouquets of bird feathers and dried lavender and lamps not really in the right place and a record player on an old dresser. I'm not in a hurry to change it -- any of it. The pew on the front porch. The old hutch. A gathering.
And that is what we are. A place for gathering. Music now while children sleep and pumpkin bread bakes. There will be musicians always and friends and food and children running in and out -- always.
I don't get Pottery Barn magazines in the mail anymore.
