If these walls were words:

Here's a little spotlight on one more creative element in our nest.

A post showing something I've actually made/stitched/painted... (for those who may fear this blog has lost all creative inspiration and plunged deep into pregnancy/motherhood posts)!

See, up there... that simple tapestry above the door in our entryway.
A quick project I did in the past - a theme, a prayer, for our home.

 An excerpt from a beautiful book of prayers called The Valley of Vision:

"Fill the garden of my soul with the wind of love, that the aroma of the Christian life may be wafted to others; then come and gather fruits to thy glory.
So shall I fulfil the great end of my being - to glorify Thee and be a blessing to man." 

This prayer sums up the desire of our hearts.
It also makes a great theme for our home... we want to use our home, our hearts, and our hands to glorify God and to bless others.

Just a few scraps of stitched fabric.
An assortment of buttons and strokes of paint.
A tattered canvas.

But if these walls were words, I hope they would sing a sweet and simple song of love to all who enter.

Do you like posting themes/verses/inspirations?
For readers who have been around here a long time.. you may recall the other tapestry I made for the three goals/rhythms of our nest.

I enjoy simple, creative ways to reflect our heart in our home.
I'd love to hear what you hang your heart on too...

Creatively yours,
Mel ;o)


  1. Really love this Mel- beautiful artwork and I love the prayer/goal of your home. Very nice!

  2. I love this! I think it's hard to find ways to express Christianity in home decor because so much of commercial product is cheesy. Thanks for sharing!

  3. thanks bunches Cristi... you getting any moment to craft yet?? Origami diapers... ;o) xx


Thanks for dropping by our nest, I love to hear from you!
