Around the Home Wednesday!

Hello friends. I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite spots around my home this week. Spots that speak beauty to me. In the grit and grind of the day we need little pockets of beauty. I have little areas that really always refresh me when I look in that direction. Here is some of my favorite beauty spots around the home this Wednesday.


I have been wanting an orchid for a long while. I finally found one that was in good condition and one that I just fell in love with. It is perfect for my bathroom around my garden tub. I get a lot pure sunlight in this room.  I just love this little nook by my bathtub.


I have been trying shampoo bars by Sudsy Soapery. Handmade and natural products. I am not an affiliate or anything. Just thought I would share that they are very neat, smell good, work well and look so beautiful on this tray in my bathroom.


This little frame is a craft we made at Ladies Book Study I host on Thursday's. We are reading Loving God With All Your Mind by Elizabeth George. It is so good. I love seeing this every morning in my room while I am getting ready for the day.


This cute little table has some Springy/Easter signs I love for this time of year to display.


My one and only plant I have purchased this year. I will not be purchasing anymore that I know of besides lavender and a fern for the front porch. I do not have the time to maintain them and do not want to waste money. I have done so many pots of plants in the past when my life is in a busy season  as it is now and only for them to die or not be kept up.

My dear friends....my home isn't perfect. As we speak I am stuck in bed with a physical issue and see some little messes here and there and much needed cleaned baseboards. But I forced myself to get up and snap some pictures of things that did make me smile or feel refreshed around my home. I feel much better just by doing this task.

So, maybe you need a little "Home Beauty" pick me up. Go around and find something that refreshes you when you see it. If you don't have that... create a spot. I don't mean go out and buy something. Use what you have, rearrange something, or declutter an area and add some flowers.

~Beauty is really in the Eye of the Beholder!~

    1. Actually, it is still with blogger. I just purchased a domain that blogger offers. I also paid $15 for the blog template by Designer Blogs. It was so simple. So, I am still with blogger just updated it all to make it more polished.

  5. What lovely, tranquil spots. My home is small and cozily cluttered...not many spaces for that kind of serenity. When our bathroom remodel is finished I hope it will be the exception. My office with all my books and the little desk I bought at an auction for $5 is my happy place.

    1. I understand. I lived in a super tiny home a few years ago. Three children to a bedroom...tiny. Just a bouquet of flowers was about all I could do. I also had a desk as well in a small corner. That was my spot as well. Thanks for visiting .

  6. YES!!! I am working on my spot as well. It got overwhelmed with JUNK & I need my spot back where I can go in & just relax & breath.
    Love your frame & that you did crafts with your bible study group!
    I've never been brave enough to take on an orchid - but they are so beautiful!

  8. So sorry that you are under the weather... but oh my what sweet vignettes of joy your snapped and shared with us all today ...I've never had any luck with orchids .. so I often choose ' no fuss ' plants like Easter and Christmas cactus... They don't need alot of care and keep giving back blossom after blossom. Your bathroom soaps look fabulous and I bet that you are really enjoying them ... My daughter and I make our own using essential oils... They smell wonderful. Your framed craft is so pretty and meaningful...Nice work...My " Pick Me Up" today is looking out of my studio winder in awe of God humor... It's April and we're having a snow blizzard.( ha ha) ..I have to laugh ...because these days as I stuggle to walk awaiting a knee replacement ... I know that God is telling me that it's warmer inside than out .. "so ENJOY the scenery" ... Incidently ... I did take a few picturesof the snow and posted them....ENJOY your week-end..sweet girl...Get well soon...Hugs

  9. I received an orchid like that once for my birthday. I left it like it was for two years and then thought of re potting it. But the directions said to just throw it and get a new one. I went to the store and found orchid potting soil and re potted and it grew for two more years then I had to re-pot again. This time it cost me over $50.00 for the large pot and the orchid mix and the orchid stones, so Hubby said that is the last time you try to prove you can do something to the tune of $50.00. Poor orchid. I love your soap arrangement.
