Progress, at times, seems to be slow going. I just want it done. I want to go from before to after with no in between. It is always the middle that is the hardest. It is usually filled with emotions of frustration, pain, discouragement and sometimes tears. I am learning that it is in those middle moments where the miracles begin to take place, where transformation occurs, and growth happens. It is in the middle where character is developed, strength is made stronger and faith is deepened. It is in the middle that God does his best work. Yet, we want to rush the process instead of allowing Him to complete the vision HE has for us. I am learning that the middle is often times more beautiful than the after. Dear friends, if you find yourself in the middle embrace it because God is doing an amazing work and creating a beautiful and better you. Love and prayers! . . . . . #thecottonmillhouse #encourageoneanother #living511 #modernfarmhouse #kitchenupdate #oldhomelove #historichome #renovation #farmhousestyle
At the beginning of 2016, I chose the word COURAGE as my word of the year. I am sharing on our blog exactly what that word meant for me last year and how it involved the courage of letting go....link in profile.
Simple shelf styling at #thecottonmillhouse. We found these Rubbermaid shelf brackets at Home Depot for less than $10 each. They come in a few different styles and can also be found on Amazon. #farmhouseshelfiesunday #farmhouselovesunday #calmsimplesunday #myscenewithgreen #sundaysimpleliving #whitefarmhousedecor #thedetailedhome #mydecoratedspaces #myneutralspace #myneutralmonday #mydecorhaven #simplefarmhousetouches #iadorefarmhousedecor #modernfarmhousemonday #mondaymetaldecor #yourdecorstyle #woodnessgracious #countrylivingmagazine #mybhg
Hello friends! I spent a few days in Edenton this week. I wished it was relaxing walks and rocking chairs but it was all work. One day, the relaxing walks and rocking chairs will be the only thing on our agenda.😂 Until then, we will be chipping away at our to do list. Here is a view of the Edenton Cotton Mill condos just across the street. I am so thankful that the decision was made to preserve and save this beautiful structure. It is an Ednenton must see. Have a wonderful evening.❤ #edentonnc #visitedenton #edentoncottonmill #cottonmill
I went looking for subway tile and instead I found this beautiful and affordable pattern tile for our second bathroom at #thecottonmillhouse. I wanted to use a decorative tile but the patterns were large and overwhelming for such a small space. I decided to go with a plain white hexagon until I saw this patterned porcelain tile at Best Tile in Raleigh. 😍😍😍It matches our color scheme and farmhouse style perfectly...Yeah!! There were so many gorgeous tile selections to chose from but this won my ❤.
