|One of the girls is bringing a couch from their family basement, and I am in charge of bringing pillows for it.|
|The smaller pillow was simply made from two home décor swatches from JoAnn's that were on sale for $1 a piece, and then I got 20% off that with my student discount this month. Yay for cheap prices!|
With each of us needing our own personal space to study and/or practice music, we are all each so thankful that we'll have our own bedrooms! Whether it was out of the goodness of their hearts or it being the last bedroom available, they've given me the master bedroom and bathroom. I won't pretend to lie that it has been great fun looking in thrift stores or the clearance racks for items to bring. While I was never one of those girl's who collected everything but the four walls of a house, I have tucked away a few things for "someday" that now will make themselves useful. Though some things will remain behind at my parents house, such as the paper-thin dessert glasses from Grandma, my antique silver plated tea service and serving dishes, or my collection of antique and modern books.
|I saw this picture on Pinterest a few weeks ago and it's my inspiration for my bathroom.|
|Grey washcloths in an antique silver-plated wire basket is a start.|
|I picked up this antique mason jar at the thrift store the other day for my cotton balls|
Many years ago a friend once told me after she had gotten married and was setting up housekeeping, "I feel like a child playing house!" It has somewhat felt that way, though thankfully I'm not on my own with having to set up the house. We're all bringing what we can, and it has been neat to see how we all have things that no one else has. God is at work, even in these small details, and we're so thankful!
