There’s no place like home.

I love my home. I would rather be here than most anywhere. It is a place of love. I guess when I think of my home that is what comes to my heart first, that I am loved and accepted and can just be myself.



It is also a place where I can freely be creative and work on whatever I feel like doing at the time.



My home isn’t fancy or a showplace, but it is warm and comfortable and I am happy here.



This is the week we celebrate love. That is the sweetest thing about Valentine’s day. That you let someone know you love them.


I love sharing these vintage valentine’s because it brings back memories of much more innocent times.



I have been working on something new for our shops. These are baby booties that I will be listing later this week, but here is a sneak peak for you.



May your week be filled with love. Embrace those around you who mean the most to you. I am extending a "Happy Valentine's Day"to each and every one of you.

Twyla, Late at night I post my blog story before going to bed. I always check your blog before heading off. This post really touched my heart. My home also is very simple. It is where I most want to be. I don't like to be away for long. I am also most loved here. In your home with your loved ones, I wish you the happiest of Valentine's Days. Elizabeth

Hi Twyla
I love my home too. I just could not ever imagine living anywhere else. At the weekend we never went out of the house mainly due to the weather. I loved every minute in my cosy warm house and even managed a little crafting.
Thanks for showing your new line of baby booties. They are so gorgeous.
Happy Valentines Day to you and Lindsey.

Yup! There's no place like home! The older I get the more I want to be here! (Glad I got a little peek of you in your mirror!) ☺

Your baby booties are very sweet, Twyla- love those little pom poms. And I love that puppy giving the ♥ a little puppy lick!

Thanks again for your contribution to my swap package! You must tell me more about those quilt scraps!

What a wonderful way to share about HOME-I love my home too! It has evolved over the years to more of what I dream of but it not perfect, never clean, but it is warm and welcoming and a place of safety and love! Happy Valentines Day!

P.S. Love the baby booties-wish I had a grandchild to give them too----someday!!
