Jenny’s Home Made Lovely

Welcome to Home Made Lovely, a special home tour series.
Hey there! My name is Jenny! I’m a wife to my awesome husband, John and a mama to my two sweet boys, Levi and Elliot. You may have seen my face in the past few months as I advertise my little Etsy shop, Free Spirit Jenny, on Life Made Lovely. I’m also a brand new baby blogger at Made To Live Free. I have loved following Heather’s blog for a long time, and have been a HUGE fan of her Home Made Lovely series. I am beyond excited to be a part of it today!

I may look like your typical American girl, but I actually grew up overseas as a missionary kid. I was raised in Hong Kong and started going to boarding school in Malaysia when I was just 10 years old! Since then, I lived in Europe for a while doing missions work, and my husband and I spent four years working at a missionary school in West Africa, where our oldest son was born. I’ve lived in a ton of different places and a ton of different houses, but no matter where we were growing up, my Mom always made our house a home. She always decorated so beautifully and no matter what ugly, cold building we lived in, the inside always felt so warm and cozy and wonderful! I guess it just rubbed off on me, because it is so important to me to make our home, wherever it is, a warm, lovely, cozy, vibrant, creative place to be! Come on in and take a peek!

 

I’m a sucker for thrifty art and flowers! The two combined equal my entryway. Bright, happy, eclectic- this is what you get when you first walk into our home.

 

The living room for me, has always been the heart of the home. I put the most effort into this space. It’s where we spend time learning, laughing, talking, entertaining…just living! It’s where we spend most of our time and I wanted it to be cozy, but reflect my style…which is vintage meets modern meets eclectic…something like that!
When I shop for items and furniture to fill our home, I really don’t over think it. I just buy things that I like and that make me happy and find a place for it! I don’t worry too much about color schemes and matching. Although, there are certain colors I’m definitely drawn to: can you see all the mustard?

 

We thrifted these vintage lamps  for a few bucks when we first got married, and I love them!

 

The mantle is kind of the focal point of the room, and I’m always changing it up depending on the season or holiday or whatever. It’s so important to me to surround our home with pictures of loved ones- it just makes it personal.

 

 I have to give a shout out to my sweet hubby for sanding and painting this dresser for me! So many people ask me about it, and I have to give him all the credit because there is no way I could have done it this nicely. He’s pretty proud of it, too =0)
I decided when we moved into this home (our first purchased home), that I wanted to surround us with truth. That’s why I love my chalkboards! I am constantly writing Bible verses and inspirational quotes that breath truth into our home and encourage us.
I collecting unusual, quirky, fun, and inexpensive items to fill my home, which is why a lot of the decor and furniture is thrifted or handmade. We got this awesome hutch for $125 at a little antique store in our town, and I think it was a steal!

 

 

 

We obviously spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so I wanted it to be cheerful, fun, and fresh feeling. We just re-did our backsplash and countertops, and we love how they turned out.

As in all of my decorating, I love mixing vintage and modern patterns. I thrift almost all of the material I use in my projects.

 

 

I’m always trying to find the balance of making the downstairs bathroom functional for my boys, and pretty for my guests!

 

My oldest son, Levi, has a room downstairs. We moved him down after our other son was born to give them each some space. It’s worked out so well, because it functions as a play room for both of them throughout the day. I love all the pops of bright colors- it’s just a happy room =0)

 

I get a lot of ideas from Pinterest, and this ABC wall was super fun to put together. I bought every letter on sale, so it took a few months to gather and paint them all!

 

I scored these vintage flash cards at the Charlotte flea market. They are one of my favorite things, for sure.

 

My husband recently built this book box because we were so tired of all the books sliding off and falling onto each other. Plus, they are (mostly) out of little brother.

 

I kept the stairway simple, because it’s right across from crazyland: i.e. the wall of flower pictures in the entryway.

We really wanted to make our room a peaceful retreat, and I actually focused on sticking to just a few colors (for me, this is just a few colors). I love the mint walls and pops of mustard. And of course, I still have to have my fun vintage mixed with modern- like the Chevron rug and big lamps.

 

 

Our youngest son, Elliot sleeps is this cozy, little space. We don’t spend a lot of time up here, so really all he does is sleep here. I really wanted it to have a vintage feel and I believe almost everything in here is second hand.

 

 

My home is such an expression of the creativity inside me. As cheesy as it sounds, sometimes I feel like I’m going to burst if I don’t have a project to work on, or something to make. I just LOVE decorating and making our home unique and warm and us. I hope I’ve been able to inspire some of you to do the same with your homes- to make them expressions of you!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

Thanks so much for sharing your happy home with us Jenny! I think my favorite is the A-B-C wall in your son’s bedroom. What a fantastic idea.

Carissa - February 14, 2014 - 1:13 am

Katie - February 14, 2014 - 7:51 am

What a cozy home! I love your painted hutch in your dining room, and your simply updated backsplash and butcherblock counters add so much personality to the kitchen. The little bible verses and quotes are a special touch, too. Beautiful!

melodee - February 14, 2014 - 9:23 pm

This is a lovely home indeed. You’re not afraid to mix vintage and new, colors, and textures. It’s obvious you decorate with what you love. And it looks fantastic. I’m inspired.

Love at the chairs in the living room!

Ellen’s Home Made Lovely

Welcome to Home Made Lovely, a special home tour series.

Hello there! My name is Ellen and I blog over at sweetwater. I love this tradition Heather has created and I’m so thankful she asked me to share my home today!

I live in South Carolina with my husband,Tom. Together we have three children: two boys and a girl, ranging from 11 to 6.

The truth is that I didn’t really understand how to make home stick. God has been so faithful to show me that all good things begin in Him and that He has a good plan for my family and where we rest our heads. Just like any other person, I still feel insecure about our home from time to time. But! God has truly shown me what makes a home really lovely. I breathe it in when I first walk in the door after a long day away. It’s the smell of my people: cut grass, lavender soap, peanut butter and apple pie. I see it stretched out from bottom to top of our two-storied cottage. It’s the little reminders of my people strewn about: paper clippings, milk mustaches and animals with antlers. This is a lovely home to me: my heart-houses and everything they love and our story together.

Our foyer is small but packed with my favorite table and our reading bookshelf.

Over the summer I got to share with the women at my church about a beloved passage in God’s Word: Psalm 16. I was sent home with this sweet little print all framed up.

Our family room is front and center, and we put it to good use with lots of living. This room gets the absolute best morning light.

The black armoire holds winter coats, hats, gloves, ball caps and baseball paraphernalia.

The dining room is just through the den. I have the privilege of using the dining table and buffet my grandmother used. My mama grew up eating at this table and I did, too!

Just on the other side of the dining room is our bedroom. We moved our room downstairs this fall. So far, we’re really happy! This little study was never really well used and I love giving it the chance to reach its full potential (Bonus! As a book lover, I am so happy waking up to a wall full of books!). My daddy built the awesome headboard for me.

There is a small full bathroom attached to our bedroom. It got a little overhaul when we moved everything downstairs. A few years ago, I promised myself that I would hang real and meaningful art any way I could. One thing I love to do is elevate my childrens’ artwork to the level it deserves by framing it, hanging it, enjoying it. My girlie made the animal triptych in art class.

I went back and forth about whether to include our kitchen in this little tour. In the end, it seemed like the best way to honor what God has done in my heart. There are several things that I would change about our kitchen if I could. It isn’t perfect. The cabinets don’t close all of the way. Each of my appliances is a different finish. I have peacock greenish-blue tiled countertops. But. I don’t want to waste my time in this house avoiding things that aren’t perfect. God promises that He meets us in imperfection and I want to live that out with every ounce of my being.

This kitchen is truly the heart of our home and it rivals the den’s morning light with it’s beautiful afternoon sunlight spilling in. I love to think of all the afternoons my husband has spent sitting on a stool and detailing his day while I cooked and cleaned. I love to think of all the things that have been created at our old table. I’ve tried to pour my heart out all over this room and that is what I see most when I walk in over and over again, day after day.

Thank you, Heather, for inviting me to share my home with your readers!

Kristin - February 7, 2014 - 12:12 am

Ellen, I think your home is very lovely, imperfection and all! It has character and emotion and all things that a home should be. Most importantly, it holds the ones you love. This resonated with me so MUCH: “Just like any other person, I still feel insecure about our home from time to time. But! God has truly shown me what makes a home really lovely.” I feel the same way, thank you for sharing!

[…] I have the sweet privilege of sharing my home (or at least the downstairs portion) at Life Made Lovely. Heather is one of my favorite bloggers. Her faith story is truly a miraculous telling of how God […]

Erin @ Blue-Eyed Bride - February 7, 2014 - 5:33 am

I love this house. It looks warm and inviting in photos and it feels that way in person. I love all of the character and thoughtfulness that went into every room.

Maria - February 7, 2014 - 6:04 am

What a lovely and meaningful home! I love all the artwork and that you showed us your kitchen. I have lots of imperfection in my home too and love to see how others make lemonade from lemons. Ellen, we are “neighbors” as I live in Lexington, SC. :)

Amy Woods - February 7, 2014 - 7:19 am

Your home is lovely! Thank you for sharing. I have many things that I’d like to upgrade in my home, but the Lord has blessed my family to own our home and His love fills it! That is what is most important afterall. God Bless you and yours!

Sarah May{Handbags*and*Pigtails} - February 7, 2014 - 7:21 am

You do it right, Ellen- all of it.
Love,
Me

stephanie - February 7, 2014 - 7:28 am

This home is so lovely! I am going to be late because i keep going through the photos:) so much beauty to see! I feel like this home has so many personal details/belongings. I don’t know if this sounds weird, but its almost like it home has a heart and a soul. I will be back many times to look at each detail again:) Thanks for sharing!

Rebecca M. - February 7, 2014 - 8:19 am

Having seen this home in person many times, I can only state how much more beautiful it is in person! The photos show the heart well. :-)

creole wisdom - February 7, 2014 - 8:45 am

I love this home! The pleated ottoman in the living room is darling, and I love how you’ve incorporated older art pieces with new.

melony - February 7, 2014 - 9:41 am

Wow, this post has me really contemplating. Our house is very old and very small (820 sq.ft, 1903, 5 of us) and i rarely talk about it on my blog as well. Your home looks lovely to me. I feel like we could sit at each other’s kitchen table and share how God is growing us in relation to our home. I am so thankful that you shared your kitchen. I am struck by the beauty of design in each space. I am encouraged in my own struggles with my home….encouraged to see the beauty that is here …and the beauty that is possible here.

Theresa - February 7, 2014 - 12:48 pm

Your home is so sweet – beautiful – and filled with creativity!
It looks as if it’s truly a home and well loved. Thank you for being brave to show the real thing. Such a great metaphor for what God calls us to be as His children. So lovely!

Lindsey @ Piecefully Home - February 7, 2014 - 1:02 pm

I adore the chandelier in the dining room!! and your living room is so inviting, i love how you strung the twinkly lights. :)

and this is so true: “But I don’t want to waste my time in this house avoiding things that aren’t perfect. God promises that He meets us in imperfection and I want to live that out with every ounce of my being.”

Ellen S. - February 7, 2014 - 4:23 pm

Ellen (what a nice name!) your house is wonderfully happy. Thanks for letting us peek in!

stephanie - February 7, 2014 - 4:50 pm

I had to come back and look at these photos again! I have another comment:) Please, do not EVER feel insecure about your home. I live in a new build in Phoenix and as much as i have tried to make it my own, it will never have a fraction of the character that your home has. This home is so full of character and i absolutely adore it!

Heather - February 8, 2014 - 11:30 am

This is probably my favorite home that I have ever seen on this blog. Real and beautiful.

melodee - February 8, 2014 - 12:01 pm

wow! I just love your whole house, even (especially) your darling kitchen! love your cheerful heart, as well!

Susan - February 8, 2014 - 3:01 pm

What a sweet home! Love it.

Katie - February 8, 2014 - 5:46 pm

Thanks for sharing your home! It looks like a wonderful place to raise a family, and I love all of the little personalized touches. The amount of sunlight pouring through your windows feels so homey and welcoming. The living room’s layout looks perfect for socializing, and that mantel vignette? Perfection.

Christen - February 9, 2014 - 4:27 pm

Sweet Ellen, your home is one of my favorite places. It’s cozy and so full of warmth! But mostly it’s filled with Jesus’ love…love you dear one!

Gary Etheridge - February 10, 2014 - 6:24 am

Love this blog, especially the beautiful tables. Thanks for sharing a window into your world.

Rachel - February 10, 2014 - 8:53 pm

vicki - February 25, 2014 - 5:21 pm

The way you talk about your home and the way you live in it is so loving and down right touching. This was such and enjoyable read, so lovely on the eye. Your home is more than beautiful, it has heart.

Mary - March 3, 2014 - 12:37 pm

This has been my favorite home tour. A home tour has never made be get teary eyed, but this one did twice! I love the verse you have framed. I cherish that verse as I think on God’s perfect work in my very imperfect life. I also appreciate your desire to have peace in imperfection. Lovely home indeed!

Flower Patch Farmgirl - March 15, 2014 - 7:26 pm

I love every single thing about this post (esp your heart). And I think those countertops are seriously RAD.

Jane - March 16, 2014 - 10:50 am

Your home is so charming, it looks well loved and lived in. Just perfect.

Jane

Kristine - March 16, 2014 - 11:14 am

I love your beautiful home, and I cannot stop thinking in my head as I look at the beautiful pictures that I love the imperfection, which reminds me of how God can take us, imperfect as we are and that we are made beautiful through the gift of His Son! When I look through pages of magazines at the “perfect” homes, I get a feeling that I don’t measure up and my heart feels weighed down. When I look at the pictures of your home, I can almost hear the laughter around the table as your family comes together and makes memories- I feel happy and lighthearted “walking through” your house! Thank you for sharing!
-Kristine

Deana - March 16, 2014 - 7:04 pm

I think your mix of vintage and modern is lovely. And best of all you reminded me of heist really matters – the people inside. God bless.

Pam - March 17, 2014 - 10:09 am

I am here from Nesting Place. Hi Heather. I think this might be my first time on your blog. Ellen you have inspired me on this day. I am always critiquing or comparing my home and I need to stop. Thank you for your encouragement. I have that same sink and so many days I want to rip it out and install a farmhouse sink! I am trying, with God’s help, to love my house right where it’s at because truth be told, we’re not in a position to renovate but that shouldn’t stop me from respecting my home and the shelter it provides us. I love your family room.

danielle - March 17, 2014 - 10:31 am

I also have a house that is not exactly what I would like it to be…yet. I also have cabinets that won’t close in my kitchen. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It’s not only beautiful because of the careful way you have decorated it, but also because of your beautiful heart that is thankful. You inspire me to love all of my imperfect home as well.

tara - March 17, 2014 - 2:31 pm

seriously beautiful home.

Hannah Beth Reid - March 18, 2014 - 3:07 pm

I really appreciate your attitude about not worrying over little things about our homes and just enjoy it as it is, loved and lived in…thank you!

Be Encouraged

Family Portrait via My Little Buffalo

If you had asked me, before Samuel died, what would happen to me if I were to loose one of my children, I would have definitely told you that I’d die from a broken heart.  I think that’s the answer every mother that hasn’t lost a child would say.  The truth is, even after surviving the loss of my boy, I am still inclined to think I’d succumb to the same fate.  I mean, how could I possibly survive?!  It’s just too much for my logical mind to wrap itself around.

The thing is though…I did survive and there is only one reason for that.  Jesus.

When my broken heart had rendered me too weak to reason why He couldn’t love me, He came right in and picked me up.  It defies all logic, and yet somehow, it doesn’t at all.

It can be so hard to live in a world that doesn’t understand that, but I know the truth.  He is the reason I’m able to get up every morning and the reason I’m able to keep going all day long.  Embracing Jesus means I have to embrace my broken heart and my loss so that He can heal me.  And He does, a little more every single day.  I will always have a scar, but He is making me well.

“Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.”  Matthew 9:22

Emily Fridenmaker - February 5, 2014 - 11:25 am

I just read about Samuel…so heartbreaking. I’m in the middle of trying to embrace my own broken heart and loss, so that Jesus can heal. Thank you for this encouragement today…I have desperately needed it. May he continue to make you well!

Erin - February 5, 2014 - 12:00 pm

Where did you get the animal rug the picture is sitting on? I’m looking for something like that
Thank you.

Jaime - February 5, 2014 - 12:04 pm

Thank you for sharing this. It encouraged me today. Esp the part where you said ” embracing Jesus means I have to embrace my broken heart and my loss so that He can heal me.” So often I want to push my brokenness away, scared that if I embrace it, I will drown in it. But your words are so true. He meets us there in our brokenness and brings healing. He never just leaves us there. I’m learning to trust Him more in this. Thankful for your heart and openness to share.

Teri - February 5, 2014 - 12:21 pm

I think this is why Romans 5:3 sticks so prominently in my head. “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame…”

That is one of the most beautiful and truthful posts. Thank you for letting us rejoice with you.

Ferial - February 5, 2014 - 2:14 pm

I really needed to read this today. Thank you, Heather.

kim - February 5, 2014 - 5:05 pm

this is beautiful, heather.

Lisa - February 5, 2014 - 5:58 pm

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I lost my daughter at 17 months. Recently my baby was sick and I thought “if he dies I just won’t survive.” Then I thought that was a stupid thing to think because I’m still alive after losing my daughter. It’s not easy but God is faithful! And look how He is blessing others through your Samuel’s life – your Joyful Life Library is a beautiful idea!

Lisa Nelson - February 6, 2014 - 4:51 am

Oh, I had never heard of the story of Samuel, it breaks my heart. I’m so glad that you thought to put him in your portrait and I am so glad that I could help in a small way to keep his memory alive for you. xo

Susan - February 6, 2014 - 9:40 am

I can so relate to this post Heather. My grief for my girls is so fresh but Jesus is there for me every moment of every single day. I was told by our amazing counselor that we will not be able to ever wrap our minds around our reality and what happened to our girls….it would have to be Divine. The trust I have in the Lord and the comfort and peace he has given us is unbelievable. I too, would have never thought I would survive the loss of my children but I am through his Grace. I am living each day in honor of God and in honor of my girls till we all meet in eternity. Beautiful Post!

Chrissy Stratton - February 6, 2014 - 9:48 am

Your faith is so inspiring! I’m so sorry for your loss. Through your loss you have no idea how much you strengthen others you’ve never met & to me that is God too! So thank you for sharing & through your words, pictures & blog- encouraging me through some tough times.

Erin - February 6, 2014 - 9:59 am

Thank you for sharing your heart. Mathew 9:22 is something I want to always carry with me.

Andrea Thomason - February 9, 2014 - 10:19 pm

You are all a beautiful testament to the faithful care of ou Great God of hope. Just beautiful. God be praised.

Lemonade Makin' Mama - February 12, 2014 - 9:49 am

I love your heart. Last month I had a breast cancer scare and I didn’t tell anyone about it. I told my husband the day before I went in for the apt but I still haven’t shared it with anyone but my mother… for some reason cancer was always one of my big fears, of course along with losing a loved one which is probably the top of every mother’s list- for some reason cancer was the one that I thought just the knowledge of what those words would bring would cripple me because the idea of dying and leaving my kids… well it makes me shudder. I remember the morning of the apt I stood in my hallway and told the Lord, “OKay. If this is the journey you’ve got for me, I will walk it…” and I might have had clenched teeth when I said it but I knew that HIS strength was going to be my lifeline. So far everything looks fine but it startled me that His strength is so mighty that it could help me say “yes” to something I’d feared my whole life. Anyway… I just wanted to say that you encourage so many of us and you are precious. Wrote ya a book here to just say that.. LOL Much love to you Heather.

Our Little Labor of Love

photo

One of the other things I want to do in this new year is share more about my little home.  I’m certainly not a professional decorator, but I do have a method to my madness, so I thought I’d share more of it with you.

After losing Samuel it became a necessity to have a haven at home.  We needed our space to be a safe place we could come back to, in order to regain our footing and fill our hearts back up.  As time went on our grief changed, but the need for our sanctuary stayed the same, so that’s when I decided to make it my mission to make our space lovely.  I set out to define our style as a family, to ensure that each one of us will continue to feel inspired by our home.  And because we are constantly growing and changing, so is our home.  Not in dramatic ways, but in ways that make it possible for our space to keep filling us up.

Let’s start right now with a snapshot of our weekend…

We spent it painting the entire exterior of our house.  It wasn’t easy, but then again the good stuff never is.  We decided to go with a dark based grey called Anonymous from HGTV by Sherwin Williams.  Since our house doesn’t really have any interesting architectural details, this deep neutral color will help the house recede a bit, and become a backdrop for our plants!

I can’t tell you how exciting it was to wake up this morning, completely sore from all the labor we put in over the long weekend, to see that the outside of the house finally reflects the people that live in it.  We still have some cleaning and touch ups to do, plus finding a pretty accent color for the front and back doors, but that can all wait until the next weekend.  For now I’m going to enjoy sitting outside, staring at our little labor of love.

Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your home project! it IS rewarding to tackle these kinds of things isn’t it? Someone commented to me this week that I spend a lot of time in my home…and I answered yes, that I do. My home is my hobby. It is joy to create a haven for our families and friends…anyone needing a place to weather the storm.

XO.

Leanne - January 21, 2014 - 1:55 pm

I love the colour that you chose Heather. I really like grey’s they are calming for me. I completely understand what you are saying about making your home your sanctuary and having it comfortable and making it your own. I am thinking about this at the moment and trying to think of “frugal” ways to make the changes I’d like. Painting is so refreshing, it lifts your surroundings immediately.

I love it when you say “but in ways that make it possible for our space to keep filling us up”.

Jackie - January 21, 2014 - 4:04 pm

Looking great! You are such an inspiration and awesome testimony to others. Looking forward to seeing more pictures. Have a blessed evening.

Amber Z - January 21, 2014 - 6:33 pm

I always love to see sneaks of your home! I think you have great style. I get a lot of ideas for my home from your home tours. Thanks for sharing! :)

tara - January 26, 2014 - 11:19 am

dying to see the before shots….wanna know what the color was before it became this AWESOME new color!!!
