Home Sweet Home

Well, for the long Labor Day holiday weekend, Lloyd and I didn't do anything "special".  After a busy week of applications and interviews, I was definitely ready to just kick back and be HOME.  I guess it's a good thing that HOME is the place I'd most like to be the majority of the time.  We create our homes to be just such havens, do we not?

Here's a beautiful home I always loved in my hometown of Springfield, Missouri:  
The Fellows Home

The thing I love most about my HOME is that my husband is here with me.  I know, it's cheesy, but it's true.  We just like to be around each other, even if we don't speak for hours at a time.  I can be in my craft room or on my computer, and he can be playing video games or on his computer, and that's fine.  But we just like to have the other's presence nearby.

The other thing I especially like about my HOME is that it has all my favorite things to DO so I never get bored.  I love having a computer at hand for anything I can conceive of doing:  surfing, shopping, designing, emailing, chatting, etc.  When we travel away (I don't have a laptop yet), I miss my computer more than anything.  What's your favorite part about being HOME?  What makes your home special to you?


  1. Cheryl ~
    That is so very sweet and you and your
    hubby sound so much like us ~
    I love just being home with him ~
    We are empty nesters and it is
    a sweet time of life ~


  2. Hi there Cheryl, First, I have to say I love your Fall blog re-do! Fantastic! Did you do it? I was just thinking yesterday I need to think of a Fall blog makeover too! I agree, I too love home. I agree also it's just having the companionship of just being together in the home you share that is special. I love most of all when it's clean, there's dinner cooking in the oven, and I have several hours to devote to my craft room! Suzie

  3. I agree with Suzie... love the new banner!

    You know I'm a homebody. What I love most is, it just feels RIGHT.

  4. I'm so glad I read up on your blog tonight! We have so much in common! I'm so lucky to have the excuse to call on you as your visiting teacher! LOVE the cottage crafts and links and esp. the way you write and think!

  5. What a sweet post!!!! LONG time no see. I don't think I've seen you since Paper Cowgirls. How the heck are you?

    Home... I love my "stuff"!!! You know... my magazines & books, my craft supplies, my beads & vintage jewels, my beautiful lace & buttons... but, most of all my Hubby & all the memories we've made here. But, remember Home is where your heart is so, I guess it could be anywhere. HUGS! Charlene

  6. Hi Cheryl! Nice to meet you. I just discovered your blog. We live in Springfield! Small world, isn't it? Have a nice day! Twyla

  7. Yep, I'm pretty much a home body too! Hubby and furry kids are here. That makes it the destination for me! :D


  8. I agree with you and what you like about home. I just have to say that I putter around my home from my sewing room, my craft studio, and the family room, where my computer is. (I don't have a laptop either) I love to create here!
