This week has been a very busy week filled with fun and celebrations of love.
We had a wonderful time at church this morning and came home to a yummy lunch. Now I am ready to get sentimental with you lovelies.
This week I am going to share with you something that was made by my great grandmother, LuLu Bell, to serve a very utilitarian purpose. Even though it was used for the practical in life she still made it beautiful and with great care.
This pretty little door stop is made from cardboard and fabric. My dad remembers watching her make them, without a pattern. I love the detail and time that went into it. Inside there is a rock to give it weight. She could have just used the rock to hold the door open,
but instead she wanted this doorstop to show the love she had for her home and those in it.
That is the way I feel about making my home beautiful.....
It is a reflection of my thankfulness for it and for the people who live in it.
You can tell that it has served it's purpose for a long time and is well worn.
I do not remember a time in my life when I haven't seen this doorstop around and am thankful that it is at my house now.
I am using what I love.
So what are you sentimental about today?
