When I think of my home I hear myself say ” this needs to be done, that needs fixing!! grrrrrr!”
When I was growing up I lived with a uniquely odd and artistic woman named -MOM.
My grandparents Grammy and Poppy were two of the most artistic people I knew. I always enjoyed going to my grandparents house. Every where you went there was something interesting to look at and discover. Grammy called it FOO FOO.
“Foo Foo” is the stuff that you put in your house that makes it sing your souls tune. It calls to you…come look at me, be inspired, enjoy me!
What’s in your house that is your FOO FOO ??
I have artwork my Poppy created. I have pillows and blankets my Grammy made. I have her bead work. I have my daughters paintings.
I want my home to sing to me like this…
My home – poem
Full of light
From place to place
An odd face in the corner
A wonder land and a hide away
Over there photos of interest
Angles and sights
Up close and personal
Off to the side
In a cockeyed way
A little thing over there
Wow, what is that
I bet a treasure
Its somewhere untouched
Lets look and see
What’s around that bend
Its where I send
Your heart when you look into it
Do you have the things you need to make your home come alive? Think about what makes you happy and begin to remove the things that dont or do something to make it enjoyable!
Ps…same goes for the soul !! :0)
