When a House becomes a Home.......


...........alot of things go into making a house a home.......and really just our love for each other goes a long way to making a house a home.  But other things are creeping in too......Our family portraits are on the wall..................


.............the smell of supper cooking when hubby walks thru the front door after the horrendous commute....Me ...knee deep in projects in my craft room..........hubby working on a project in his garage (I'll show you soon).......Just life.....life goes on ...life finds a way.........and then.....

.........we found this brave lady.......she is so tiny......I don't think i've ever seen such a tiny bird that was not a hummingbird....but as you can see she took up residence right by our walkway...and she really is so brave......I can mill around out there watering my plants and pulling a few weeds...carry in groceries and she does not flinch. The other day we had a chance to peek in her nest with her gone as it is at eye level and she has one teeny tiny egg in there. Hubby came home one day a week or so ago and pointed the nest out to me. I hadn't even noticed it and he said 'Now our house is a home.......What makes your house a home? Hugs! deb

Love always makes a house a home.

The robins are building their nest in our carport now and the house sparrows are raiding it instead of finding their own material to build a nest. They ignore us too when we go out to the car.

Awww ... how sweet. And you have a tree in the front yard - yay!

What makes a house a home to me? Getting everything sorted and put into place; then hanging the artwork we've collected from our travels the past 30 years,

What makes a home mine is getting all my art and craft supplies in place and computer set up so I can play!
