Home…

our happy place.  Traditions, warmth and welcome.

Home is a feeling. It radiates fond memories of countless holidays, birthdays, milestone celebrations and after school projects.  It’s also simply seeing the beauty in the everyday.  It’s where your stories are written, the place where you belong.

Each season brings with it celebrations, holidays, weather – all playing a vital role as to how we live and play.  So many can relate to the feeling of cold weather coming upon us in Autumn.  Long cooked winter meals, football and a crackling hearth.  Shortened days, the rustle of leaves, the scent of candles burning inside a jack-o-lantern.  The sounds, smells and tastes that all come together to create a feeling.  This is your home, your good life.

I would like to share with you my ways to make each day a celebration, make the ordinary extraordinary, and how to be organized and efficient and enjoy living for the moment.

I extend my invitation to you to come inside and experience home…Welcome!


Month to Month Inspiration

May 2020

I found these beautiful Ranunculus flowers at the local grocery!

Well we’ve made it through probably one of the most unusual April’s any of us have ever known. Corona virus has changed all of our lives in one way or another, some perhaps permanently and hopefully, most of it, temporarily. Through it all, however, I’ve tried to stay positive and look at the upside of the situation. Staying home has never been a problem for me, hence the birth of this blog. I see this time as the ultimate gift with my young adult children who are all home at a time when they would not be, and even more special is how happy my youngest one is (still in 7th grade and was so missing her college-aged siblings). Just a few months ago, after I tucked her in, I remembered thinking of how quiet my house was. I remind myself that I may never have this much time again with everyone together, under the same roof. What I have missed is being able to just venture out casually, to see friends, entertain, shop, etc. As we enter May, my hope is that some sort of normalcy returns for all of us. It is a changed world for certain, but at least we can get outside and start to enjoy the warmer days ahead. Happy May my friends.

Beautiful Chinoiserie

I have always had a soft spot for chinoiserie. Something about the curvy shape of a well proportioned ginger jar and the elegant pointy corners of pagodas always appealed to me.
