Remember this post? Well, it is finally here! I am so excited to welcome you to my new blog home! This really suits me and I hope you will find that it is a relaxing and peaceful place to be as well!
Thank you, Susie ~ you did a great job honoring my requests and even my style! What a great experience you've made this.
Thank you, Mom ~ for the fun gift! I am giddy with excitement and open my blog often just to look at how pretty and inviting it is!
So, let me tell you more about why I chose what I did. First of all, you can read here and here about why the name Homespun Heart fits me.
I wanted the feel of my blog to be refreshing and relaxing, inviting and peaceful, calming and warm. I chose the photos because I like them, but also because they communicate things I wanted to communicate.
Mason Jar and Candle - does everyone remember how much I love canning jars?! But, I love what this picture says to me - it says welcome and is inviting, it looks peaceful and invites reflection and most of all - it says that there is a friend there who took the time to set it out. I am the friend who has set it out for each of you and I hope you feel welcomed and cared for. More thoughts on this here.
Rocking Chairs - I love this photo too! It looks aged, simple, pure. I wanted this to communicate the feel of sitting in a rocking chair and having a lovely chat between friends. In a peaceful place. Won't you pull up a chair and visit?
Hydrangeas - I admit that I love hydrangeas! They are one wonderful thing I've discovered about gardening in the south! See some of my hydrangeas here, here, and here. This just represents a simple pleasure that I enjoy.
The colors were chosen not only because I liked them but because I felt they would continue my desire of a theme that was warm and yet relaxing.
I wanted to include my photo to enhance the personal connection with each of you and make it seem more like a visit with a friend.
I love the vintage postcard which is a button for you to e-mail me. I've heard from lots of you over the past months and I love getting your e-mails! Thank you so much for keeping in touch!
The Inspiration verse can be changed periodically - but I wanted to start with this verse because I love the picture of God leading us to a peaceful place that is restoring and refreshing. I sincerely hope you will find that kind of place here.
I wanted to make my blog easier to read and more fun to visit - so I hope you will enjoy it! I know I will enjoy my visits with each of you and I'm thankful for your friendships! I desire for this to be a place of mutual encouragement and giving glory to God and I thank you for joining me in the journey! Enjoy!
