1st place goes to: Kathy - My life and other beads. Your home sounds just like ours.
Home, the place where sometimes it's calm, sometimes it's noisy (ok rather a lot), sometimes it's fraught, sometimes it's lonely (1st day back at school especially) but most of all it's just lovely. (and full of dust and washing)
2nd place: Shabby Shac with Home is where I feel safe with my family, and safe in the fact everyone is at home safe together. I feel relaxed at home and find it really relaxing knowing that I can walk round and do what I want when I want, like eat a whole packet of biscuits! if I feel sad then I can feel sad and pick myself up again. When I am really happy I can jump up and down on my own bed and no one knows. (we do now hehe!)
3rd place: Kitty - Kitty's Bloggy Bits with Home is where it's ok to be 'me' all the time. Where my kids can be 'them', where 'we' can be 'us'.
Well done to the 3 winners please send me your addresses and your prizes will be on there way to you very soon. Email is email@example.com I look forward to hearing from you. x
I thought I'd just share this photo with you all it's the first thing I see every time I walk through our front door. And what ever the weather outside the warm soft lilac colour on the walls (not shown very well in this photo) and these my favourite pictures, just makes me smile. I can close the door behind me and feel safe and warm at home.
And here is a beautiful twig heart I got from our local florist with some birthday money. I just can't resist a heart. It now hangs on our front door inside but I couldn't get a good photo of it hanging there. I have now spotted it has it's own little occupant a cute little spider. He can stay maybe he's a money spider and will bring us some luck in 2008 lol
Today Home means warm and cosy cuddles on the sofa, hot coffee and a very small gypsy tart, the girls laughing and playing (and a bit of screaming and fighting lol) some crafting, a look through the new Country Living mag, and the cats snuggled up in their own special spots happy to be indoors safe and dry away from the pouring rain and gusty winds outside.
And lastly looking forward to the first kiss from Ben as he gets in from work and the girls jumping up for their cuddles and shouting "Daddy" daddy daddy!
The best place in the world HOME x
