"Comforts of Home" & "Seaside Fairy House"

Closing your eyes to imagine a place where:
pening the door you are greeted by your sweet furry pet's unconditional love;
aking apple, cinnamon muffins is top priority to start the day;
lowers placed in the Limogues vase graces the breakfast table;
range tablecloth and rust linen napkins set the tone for Fall;
elaxing around the oak farm table with family and friends; the laughter is so refreshing;
eacups brimming with hot chocolate and shortbread cookies on Haviland dishes;
ugar bowl and creamer from Bavaria placed near the silver spoons will greet us when we return.

October's bounty beckons us to get out into the brisk autumn air to explore the country lanes;
Finally home with a car full of apples, pumpkins, smiley faces and our antique stash of a pink pedestal dish, antique picture frames and brass candlesticks;

Home is where your soul rests and your spirit restores on
Overstuffed bed pillows, vintage chenille bedspreads and comforting multi-colored quilts;
agazines; a good book and a bone china English floral dish filled with chocolates on your bed side table;
veryone now off to dreamland after enjoying all the comforts of home and looking forward to a new day tomorrow.

Thanks to Susie Durrschmidt for this months Write up for our themed Shopping Events every Friday at Make Mine Pink!!

Now, to share another little Home of Comfort for a Little Seaside Fairy, this is my Little Fairy House for a Swap I am participating in at the "Once Upon a Dream" Art Event in Asheville, NC next week. We had such a variety of Swaps to choose from, I think their were 8 or 9 total. I chose 3. I hope tomorrow night to show you the results of another Swap I am in.

Shells that we collected here on our Beach, I Glittered then glued them on to this little house with all kinds of Baubles, Flowers, Tulle, Sea Glass, Lace, Pearls, Twinkle Ribbon, etc. I really had a great time putting this all together. I think a little Little Fairy would like to live here, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Huggs, Nancy
