Commitment to Loveliness: Week of March 27th...

Jessie Wilcox Smith

1. Repair the chain for my Cross and put Sugar Plum's Cross back onto her chain... this will be easy, now that I have some needle-nose pliers to use.

2. Tend to some beauty needs that I have been neglecting: Get bangs trimmed, groom eyebrows, and give myself a pedicure.

3. Find some window treatments for the front door and sidelight. This has been a very frustrating item on my to-do list for awhile now... I cannot find what I am looking for and everything seems to cost a bit too much for my pocketbook. Your ideas would be most welcome!

4. Streamline the children's play area/learning room downstairs. Father John really abhors clutter (as do I) and that has become the main description of that area of our house. I am thinking about moving our learning things upstairs to the loft and then transforming the space into more of a reading nook. It is going to take some creativity, since I don't have the budget for new furniture (like a comfy chair or two). We'll see what we can work out.

5. A new centerpiece for our dining room table. The tulips from Father John's birthday have reached the end of their life. I am hoping that some pretty little violas might like to try life indoors for awhile.


Please join me in making a Commitment to Loveliness! This is a fun way to increase femininity and beauty in one's life each week without much effort! All you have to do is choose five things that you would like to work on or do during the week that will increase the loveliness in your life!
Once you have chosen five simple things, post them on your blog and let us know in the comments section. If you do not have a blog, but have a commitment to share, please post them in the comments section.

Have you looked at the Nester's window mistreatments? She's big on (1) do it yourself (2) don't spend a lot and (3) it doesn't have to be perfect.

Can you post pictures of the area so we can better offer suggestions? I like the idea of the Nester too. We used to glean ideas from her all the time!
