The Mister has been really busy with work so I told him I would step in and handle the post for him. Below are images of his “sacred room”. He took the closet in this room and made it his own with every piece of memory that he had from his childhood, his mother, and family. Usually when people come over they end up in that room, and are in amazement at what he has “collected” and put up. It really speaks to the man he is, and what is important to him in my opinion. To be honest, I still go in there and marvel at the images, and pick up pieces of character that he has planted in the space. The smell is even old. In his mind he says he has the scent of his Paw Paws smoking tobacco (Mr. Styles doesn’t smoke). He went to the local tobacco shop, and actually sniffed every tobacco until he found the familiar scent from his childhood. So there are mason jars filled with tobacco, that he sometimes burns for a heavier smell.
The door to the space originally was a basic door, and he has now changed it out to an older door, which he painted, and had glass inserted.
There is one piece of me that he allowed on the door. The knobs. I grew up with those crystal knobs in my Granny's house, and just looking at them everyday takes me back.
And here are a few images of what is behind the door. Trust me. Every item has a meaning. From the dried leaf in the cup, to the Sega machine that sits up proudly.
My favorite photo. Disney World 2005. I was actually pregnant here.
Now..he doesn’t even eat candy. BUT…They remind him of his childhood. Did I mention he is number 7 of 10 kids. Yep, lucky number 7. I have a special guy. Can you spy my 16 year old self on the drivers license?
He made this for his Mom when he was a kid. After she passed, he brought it home.
I told you guys he is a SOONER FAN. HUGE.
His Mom adorns this mirror along with us. I am excited to see what he changes in here myself during the process of changing the entire room.
He found these receipts, along with some stamps and old photos as well after his Mom passed. They date back to 1965. It looks like the house payment was $15.00 --- Things that most would throw away. He would keep.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It really does offer a peak inside of who he is. He reads all the comments that you guys leave on his posts, and I think he is liking this blogging thing.
High Fives & Hugs,
Tam(on behalf of Mr. Styles)
