Home Sweet Home

In hopes that our two months here would not feel entirely like summer camp, I brought a little decor from our shut-down apartment prior to its thrift store retirement. In the end, our kitchen has become the perfect re-grouping place after a long day of meetings.



Please note the curtains. These, dear friends, are made from a $10 sheet I purchased when we moved into our apartment in Louisville. As it turned out, the windows here were far to big for them. So, I turned them longways, wrapped them around a tension rod (no holes rule) and tied them up with ribbon. For 20 minutes with cut up sheets, they definitely add a little home-yness (or homeliness?) to our view.



The camp-style twin beds refurbished into king size:



And my favorite household adornment? Always the little man.



Home Sweet Home...for a few weeks anyways!

It looks beautiful, Laura! We are glad to be coming before the Father for you during this time!

Love it, Laura! It always helps when temporary homes actually feel -- well, somewhat -- like home. :)

I've never seen a quad look so quaint in all my life. You could make a hut in the middle of the desert be an oasis of comfort. :)

Wow...doesn't look anything like I remember...from June 1993! You did a great job making it feel more homey.

It's awesome! I really love the dining area and the table cloth. I agree, you can and have made all of your spaces beautiful. Maybe you can do interior decorating in S Asia?! :)

Laura, apparently your've picked up some tips from Mom. She could always make anyplace look unique and like home with her on special touch. You will have many more opportunities the next few years and I believe it will help David and Jude feel more like they have a home or special place to come home to.

Love the quad! You certainly have a gift for decorating and hospitality, Laura. Something that will definitely be helpful in your life as a "nomad". Praying for you guys!
