"Your Interior Decoration... Today" ~ Housecleaning Inspiration

The Open Window by Walter Gay

“Interior decoration is not just one's artistic efforts,
but it is that which your home (even if it is just a room) is.

The Interior by Helen Galloway McNicoll

If you are 'decorating' with clothes draped on every chair,
with scratched and broken furniture- it is still your interior decoration!

Blue and White by Walter Gay

Your home expresses you to other people, and they cannot see or feel your daydreams of what you expect to make in that misty future, when all the circumstances are what you think they must be before you will find it worthwhile to start.

The Artists Study by Walter Gay

You have started, whether you recognize that fact or not!

The Commode by Walter Gay

We foolish mortals sometimes live through years not realizing how short life is,

and that TODAY is your life.”

~ Edith Schaeffer, The Hidden Art of Homemaking

The Bedroom by Walter Gay

“The life of faith is lived one day at a time, and it has to be lived - not always looked forward to as though the "real" living were around the next corner. It is TODAY for which we are responsible. God still owns tomorrow.”
~ Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman

"This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it."
~Psalm 118:24


  1. JES,

    I love these reminders!!! It is true that today is our life. How important that we remember that and live every day as Jesus would have us to.

  4. Just wanted to let you know that today I was having trouble gathering my motivation to get away from the computer (while the children were quiet) and get down to some nitty gritty cleaning that has been on my list for awhile. I remembered I was encouraged a few days ago by this post and so came back to read it today. It worked! My stove looks so happy right now (especially the floor beneath it that is now sparkling!). Thank you :)

    1. Oh, thanks for sharing that! It made my day that this inspired someone else too :) because it worked for me :)
