So have you noticed my pretty new button on my side bar.
I am so excited to tell you about it.
As many of you know I am a big softy and love all things sentimental.
So starting this Sunday
I will be hosting a Sentimental link party.
My hope is it will give us a chance to show off the things we decorate with that are meaningful to us in our homes.
One of the things I have notice since starting to blog is that there seems to be an importance on the latest trend, the great deal, and the amazing makeover. But my question in all of this is are you decorating with the things that matter to you. Will you care if you only paid $45 for something if next year you hate it, would it have been money better spent if you saved and bought the thing that you really loved the thing that your children will one day want. Or would it have made more sense to use your grandmothers table even though it wasn't the "in" thing at the time, it will always be special no matter what the trend.
Please don't get me wrong, I love restyling my home to reflect some of the latest trends, I get giddy when I score a good deal, and I have dreams about making things over.
What I am asking us to do is put equal importance on the things of SENTIMENTAL value in our homes.
It doesn't have to be a great deal, it does have to be made over and it doesn't even have to be perfect but it should be meaningful.
So on this Sunday I am asking you to link up a post about something in your home that you decorate with that is meaningful.
Share the stories behind the piece.
Will you be Sentimental on Sunday with me.
My plan is to host a party each Sunday
so if you can't make it this week mark your calendars for the following week
