Home Sweet Home

Having someplace to go is home.
Having someone to love is family.
Having both is a blessing.

I have been truly blessed by both a loving family and a place of my own to call home. My home is not one of grand stature, but it is one full of love and wonderful memories. It is the place where we started our family, it is the place where our family has gathered for many picnics, a place where many a holiday and birthday have been celebrated, a place where our friends are always welcome, a place where we feel safe and comfortable.
Each room in my home is special to me, each in it's own way. I look at my son's room once a room decorated in the soft colors of a baby's nursery now filled with things belonging to a 17 year old young man. Wrestling trophy's, an electric guitar, an x box, and Cd's have long replaced teddy bears, Lego's and matchbox cars.
As I look at my kitchen, I am reminded of how when I decided to redecorate, my family and friends chipped right in to help out. Never complaining when the cabinets needed just one more coat of paint then we had originally thought. My best friend's husband took so much time and care to hang wainscoting giving the room that cottage look that I love.

Our game room filled with vintage signs and framed sports jerseys--the place my son and husband "hang out" with each other. I love the sound of their laughter as they watch a goofy movie that only
they would enjoy.

My craft room that has allowed me so much happiness as I create. Someday I will show you pictures when it is just a little more tidy (lol)

Then there is my living room. The one place in my house that I can retreat to when there is craziness everywhere else. The room with no TV where I can just sit and think. The place where I have decorated with my true personality. This is the room that I sit and visit with special friends and the room I would love to share with you.

This sweet pillow was made for me by my mom. She is such a talented sewer and quilter. I plan on sharing more of her work with you in my mother's day post. I can't wait to show you her amazing quilts--I know you will love them.

I guess the line from one of my favorite movies is true----There really is no place like HOME!
