We finally got around to hanging the “Rendre grĂ¢ce” sign.

It’s centered in our dining space for a daily reminder to give thanks.

What feelings or words does this room conjure up for you? 

Peacefulness?

Rest for the weary? 

Calm serenity?

Well…….. at present, it’s screaming CHAOS! MESS!

Just when one project is done, another begins.  Always!

The only thing that keeps me sane amidst it all is the anticipation of the next thing coming.  Like this 8 ft. hardwood door we found for a steal at Habitat’s Restore.   It’s gonna be good!

    By the way, I just have to let you know your house is at the top of my "all time favorites"...so cozy and warm yet simple and classic. All the things I love. So glad to have a peek inside! ;o)
