Hello! I'm Grace and welcome to My Spare Oom.
The name of my blog comes from a passage in C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, where Mr. Tumnus, a faun misunderstands Lucy, the young human girl he finds in the woods.
"This is the land of Narnia," said the Faun, "....And you - you have come from the wild woods of the west?"
"I - I got in through the wardrobe in the spare room," said Lucy.
"Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?"
I've always been like Lucy, eager to look in wardrobes and search out the adventures and joys of life. I've always had a love for other worlds...for magic and wonder. I'm a storyteller and writer. It's extremely fitting then, that my little corner of the blogworld should be named after a story.
I'm a Roman Catholic girl born and raised in the heart of Texas, where I now attend college. I'm a junior journalism + photography major and creative writing minor, as well as studying literature, art, and philosophy. I love Christ, color, coffee, and a really good concealer.
Here in my Spare Oom, I share snippets of my life, writing, living a joyful life, and God's grace. So join me for some heart-to-heart chatting, modest + stylish fashion, and a cup of grace.
