Home Sweet Hope

Hi Everyone.
Happy Monday.

I am taking a minute to post about something heartwarming I read on a  fellow sweet blogger's Facebook page.

Susan Taggart had a blog called Must Love Junk. This is where I first met Susan.  If you remember Susan and I shared a joint feature on our blogs some time ago called Spotlight.  We would both feature a new blogger and give you a peek into the personal side of the blogger,  and also introduce you to their blog.  It was a fun adventure for both of us.  I know many of you got to know each other through this venture.

   I know many of you  follow Susan on her Facebook page Home Sweet Home Decor and also on Instagram.

Susan and her mom have been running a shop in North Canton Ohio for many years.  Now their giving hearts have started on a brand new journey.

Here is Susan's sweet words on their new adventure.

"As many of you know my mom and I have stepped back from running the shop (it's in the capable hands of Metal & Moss!) and we're on to new adventures! We are passionate about decorating and believe that everyone deserves a beautiful, comfortable, and safe place to call home. 

So combining our love of decorating and our desire to help others, we've recently partnered with the Domestic Violence Shelter to start 'HOME SWEET HOPE'! We are furnishing and decorating for those women and children who are transitioning into their new homes. As you can imagine, they are starting over with nothing and lack even the basic necessities.

That's where YOU come in! We're asking our wonderful friends and customers for help...by donating household items or money, you will be making a huge difference in the lives of these special people! Please message us if you are interested in donating any of these immediately needed items:

Gently used or new: vacuum cleaners, toasters, microwaves, coffee pots, sheets (queen or twin), towels, blankets, dishes/silverware, neutral-colored rugs, dressers/chests
If you feel led, please share this and/or pass on this info...Thank you in advance for your support!!"

If you live in the North Canton Ohio area please help these two kind and caring angels help so many women and children in need.

If you do not live in the Ohio area you can also help by donating money to this worthy cause.

I wanted to share this on my FB page and also here on my blog. 

So please open up your hearts and help these two beautiful angels help so many others.

You can get in touch with Susan through her FB Page.

I hope to have a post up in a few days on the new island for my kitchen and also the re love of this piece shown in the article below.


Vintage Goods is one of the shops I stopped at on our trip to Michigan last weekend.  Diane the sweet owner of this shop I use to sell in one of my favorite shops called Vintage in Morris Illinois. 

I share her love of chippy whites and have bought beautiful treasures in the past from her.

 It was a fun pleasure to visit her shop on our trip to Michigan. 

Their was this beautiful article written on the grand opening of her shop in Three Oaks Michigan and guess what?!!!!! That sweet chippy Garden piece pictured in this article is now in my possession!!!
Yep!!  Loved it the minute I walked into the shop. 

I had a vision for this piece in my home.  Terry with his handy tools did some adjustments and added some chippy and fun pieces I already had.  They just added a little more charm to this new piece. 
 I will have the reveal on the re love of this beautiful piece in the next few days.

Stay tuned!

Thank you again if you can help Susan and her mom's beautiful cause.  I know they will truly appreciate any and all help.

Have a great start to the new week.
xoxo
Kris

  1. That social enterprise does sound worthy and a use of ones talents, some people can look at junk and see something and others have no imagination until it's done and then they love it.

  2. Kris, That is a wonderful thing Susan and her mother are doing. Good of you to help get the word out too. I remember Susan and have missed her. I guess I need to get one instra-gram and Facebook… I am missing out on many things. Can't wait to see your new piece. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. I still follow Susan on FB and saw the Metal & Moss transition, but somehow missed the announcement of this next leg of her journey. Love it.
    Love your new treasure, looking forward to all the recent indoor activity revealed. Have a good Monday!

    1. Oh Susan this is so sweet.  I wish we had a shelter close to me so I could do this near me.  Since I do not I will send you some things.  I will order them off Amazon and send them to you to help and I have a fund raiser coming up on my blog that I will then send you proceeds from my sale to help these women and children too.  I love that you are doing this sweet friend.  You and your mom's hearts are so big and you are such a blessing to these women and their children.  God bless you.  This makes my heart sing and feel so good in a world where there is so much bad things happening.  This is so refreshing that two beautiful souls like you and your mom can make a big difference.  Life can be so rewarding and help us remember why we are all here.  Thank you for sharing your venture.  I hope you get lots of response to help out.

      Love you,

      Kris

  7. Good morning Kris! What a great idea. I don't have any of the above items or else I'd help out. This is what we need to be doing, isn't it? I wonder, I need to find out about any nearby shelters or organizations that are similar. Too many people without a roof over there heads, and yes, EVERYONE has the right to be safe, warm and dry and a place to call home. Thank you my friend!

  8. God bless them both in this new passion to make a beautiful home for women to stay in at one of the most difficult times in their lives. And of course it may inspire others in cities across the country to do the same. Hope is what women and their kids need and beauty around them and just knowing that someone cared enough to make it pleasant for them will foster that hope.

    You're an angel to help spread the word, Kris!

  9. Love how they are taking their talents and helping those in need! How awesome. It's very inspiring. We don't have to do a lot to help, do we? It can be as simple as passing on wonderful information on how to help!

    Looking forward to seeing your reveal!

  12. SHOOT! I wish I had known about this as we just got rid of a LOT from my parents house after my my passed away. Canton is just half an hour from their home and I never knew about their shop or believe me, I would have been there because there ain't a lot in that area that's cute lol. Thanks for the information and putting it out there - what an amazing team they are!

  15. I was surprised to see Three Oaks mentioned. It is just down the highway from me (US 12) I live in Niles. I don't get there much but maybe can check it out sometime. Niles also has multiple antique shops.

  22. What a wonderful thing to do. A nicely decorated place will feel more like home. Having a home will go a long way in helping these families get on their feet more quickly.
