Home making is serious business. We are wives, we are mothers we bring home the low fat, low calorie turkey bacon and cook it to perfection in our microwave crisper. Ain’t nobody gonna tell us that Cometing the shower isn’t a sacred act because it is. We have purpose, we have passion, we have 10 episodes of The Middle recorded and no time to watch them.
Our home is our office, our haven, our ministry, our base camp, and anyone entering can tell. But sometimes, something is missing in our home decor.
Does your home reflect the fun, the quirky, the “I did it just because I liked it and it works for me and I don’t care if you think it’s wrong”? Because dressing your home is one of the few places where you can break any rule and do whatever you want. Making your home beautiful for your family is NOT something to stress over.
Do you allow your home to reflect the fun in your life?
You will think my ideas for funning up the house are lame because you are not me. And others might think your fun things are lame, but that’s the beauty of making your home lighthearted and fun, you get to do what is fun to you and your family. So think of that thing you’ve always wanted to do in your home but thought your mother in law would laugh–got it yet? Now, go do that thing.

Maybe for your family, it means proudly displaying the huge animal heads that your husband brought home from Africa, right Lysa?

Maybe it means painting your chandelier your favorite shade of blue and not caring that you didn’t use HGTV approved and certified chandelier paint. One hour, one entirely too small kid’s paint brush, one fun chandelier. I have no idea if my mother-in-law likes it. If she does, I might change it because that would mean it’s not fun enough.
Maybe it means letting surfboards live in the family room, or framing and displaying to kooky imperfect family photo instead of the stiff posed one.
