Years ago my friend Jana came up with the concept of “the one thing.” Let me explain. Let’s say that you needed to fix an easy and inexpensive meal for your family, but wanted to make it seem a little more special. For instance, spaghetti. No meatballs, no fancy ingredients, just boiled noodles and a jar of sauce. Not very special, right? Enter “the one thing.” Freshly grated parmesan cheese all over the top. BAM! Suddenly the simple became a little more special.
That concept has helped me through many a boring meal, but applies to so much more. Namely, home decor. Our master bedroom is far from perfect. Nor is it close to complete, but I do love the wall color, the crisp molding and woodwork, and the copious amounts of light that pour in. Oh, and the views. Check this out.
A lovely view of downtown and sunrise over Cedar Creek. Not a bad way to wake up. Anyway, I didn’t want to feel like I had to rush to get the master just so. I want to enjoy nesting, not get in a hurry, and make hurried purchases without giving them a good deal of thought. That’s where “the one thing” comes in. Something that is lovely, special, that I will love for a long time, and keeps me from rushing to “finish” the room. So what is my “one thing” in the master?

Do you have a bed, sofa, or chair that just needs a little something? A beautiful monogrammed pillow just may be your “one thing.”
Oh, and Number Four Eleven has no idea who I am. I’m just over the moon about my pillow! Happy Friday, friends!
