A Thankful Spirit: Beds, Clothing, and Memories


With the arrival of November also comes the arrival of a thankful spirit.  November (and the holidays) are a time to reflect on all that we have and to give to those that are less fortunate.  In light of this this, I want to start the month by reflecting on a few things that we have to be thankful for...

1. Warm Bed

Beds are wonderful.  They offer a cozy place to rest our heads each night.  Beds come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can even be dressed up with the right headboard.  

Here are unique headboards to consider for your sleepy retreat.

2. Clothing

Clothing is definitely a reason to be thankful.  Aside from providing warmth and protection, it also is an avenue to show the unique personality of each individual.  With this in mind, be sure to take good care of what clothing you do have.  

Closets provide space to keep your clothing from getting squished, damaged, or dirty.

3. Memories

This day and age we have the opportunity to travel.  We are able to visit with loved ones and explore new places.  Our experiences mold us.  Usually, all we are left with are memories, pictures, and souvenirs.

Be sure to display those memories!!  

Built-Ins, even in the bedroom, can be a wonderful way to remind us not to forget our pasts.  Use built-ins for books, souvenirs, pictures, or any other trinket or treasure.
