I believe that the difference between . . .
A House & A Home
are the little details, collections, mementos
and favorite objects that we scatter about us.
The things that tell our story . . .
handmade quilts, pillows, and afghans.
A headboard created from left over
pickets from our fence.
A 43 year old sea shell windchime,
purchased on our honeymoon.
(A weekend in Seattle)
A antique clothes hanger,
a gift from a dear friend.
And a small collection of
vintage hand embroidered pillowcases.
Shelves of old photographs
and little things that mean nothing
to anyone but me :)
An old garden rake repurposed.
A necklace given to me by our daughter
and a cowgirl boot corsage,
a fun craft made one afternoon
with a dear friend.
I love hats, especially cowboy hats.
This is my favorite, a crush-able Stetson
with a chin strap.
You can sit on it or roll it up in
a suitcase and it springs back into shape :)
This little glass piano jewelry box
belonged to my husband's grandmother.
These little hearts were a sewing craft . . .
one of those you do just for fun :)
Another heart and a yard sale chair
that I distressed and gave a shabby feel.
Yep, it's the little things.
They tell our story and they make
our homes unique and personal.
Things that mean nothing to anyone else,
but bring back happy moments in time
That's my post for today,
thanks for visiting.
I hope you enjoyed yourself.
