Space

Our home is little with a HUGE beating heart!

I know I complain about how small our place is and how cramped I feel- not too mention it's dry as dirt and the heat comes and goes as it pleases----Rob will kill me for saying that.  BUT I do love it.  It's cozy~ it's us.  I have always been a person who could live happily in clutter.  It's just comfy- it makes me feel good.

I realize my son has gotten that from me :(

As I've gotten older and have so much to do- organized and no clutter makes life so much easier!

I love to see other people's places - especially small places.

I recently see an article about a couple living in 500 square feet and it was nice- I loved their place.





Erin and Danny even manage to entertain in there home



I honestly don't know how I would feel in a larger space.  Well I'm sure I could find to love it and fill it......wink wink Rob!

Anyways here's the article over at Apartment Therapy.    

I also stumbled on a little movie over at Zara about Lucy Chadwick and Duffy and there little project away from the city.  There are so many living space options out there.  Here is the clip- I love there loft in the city as well as there place in the woods.



Oh and they have a place in London check it out over at the Selby

I must say decorating our home is fairly easy  ~I will have to post my Christmas pictures.
We are off tomorrow to visit one of my best friends~ I'm so excited to see her and her family.

Wonderful Boy~ Wonderful Message

This story touched my heart - I haven't had a near death experience, but what he describes is very similar to a dream I had when I was sick.  The feeling of "God" is so hard to describe, but you don't want it to end.  I long for that feeling again.  I really wish I could describe it, but when he spoke of it I knew he felt it too.  It's just the most beautiful feeling ever!

He's such an inspiration:

Kid Gifts

Every year I try to buy one special gift that Lucas didn't ask for.....but it would be something special that he could always have.  As he has gotten older it is much more of a challenge. 

I stumbled on this store and they have real special items you don't find too often.

Acorn Toy Shop

I LOVE this!

Cute Edible Gift


I'm digging Country Living lately 
and I love this cookie gift.......

You really have to be on the look out for the cute little bits
We don't have any real good speciality shops for that  
Sometimes HomeGoods has them


Country living even gives you some tips:
 

Wax-coated tissue paper and metallic wrapping papers are ideal for packaging baked gifts; papermart.com. Before using decorative papers, wrap cooled cookies in a layer of waxed or parchment paper to maintain flavor.
