making home {photo project} 5

I can see how, as time goes on, it's going to get a lot tougher to find "encouraging" shots for my Making Home project. I wonder if I'm going to run out of lovely spots to capture. What then? Will it just be extra incentive to create more lovely in our home... something new to photograph, but also something new to bless my home and family?

I wandered around for a moment before I got the photos I wanted for this week. As I walked from room to room, I began to doubt... everything needed dusted. Half a dozen things were left unfinished. Could I find enough? I really wasn't sure at first, but they eventually came. Often made extra beautiful by the children.

All but one were taken on the same day... slacker.

Here's where I found beauty quietly waiting around me.

In the end, this turned out to be one of my favorite weeks of the project so far. Funny how that happens, isn't it?

Can't see a spec of dust in these photos. They'd be beautiful even if I could. Thanks for sharing.

So sweet. I love the kiddos in the background :)

Lovely. I didn't see any dust either!

Thanks, guys! :)

Well, I admit, I bypassed the dusty spots and tried to look for (relatively) tidier options. So, these don't show the dust that was on pretty much everything else!
