Family & Home

March 19, 2010

Do you like my new header? My sister took some photos of a house my mom made out clay several years ago. She then fiddled with the colors and added a fabric textured background, some flowers and some text, and voila! A new header!  I love it – the colors and textures, the fact that it’s a product of Mom’s and Abi’s creativity.  I hope that it feels welcoming, as home always should.

I chose the name for this blog because I like the idea of returning home safely after an adventure or an outing. For me it’s important to have that feeling of comfort, and the knowledge that I have a home base from which to explore the world. Yes, this means in part the physical building I live in, but it also means the place where my family is, where I feel comfortable and relaxed, and where my stuff is.

That’s what I want to talk about here. For me this means everything stereotypically “homey” – decorating, cleaning, cooking, crafting, gardening and entertaining. Also family, both past and present, blood relatives, furry and friends who’ve been adopted. Comfort, love, and – yes – stuff.  And of course, the adventures out in the world that make coming home so great!

    It is so, so cute. Perfect for your blog. And the fact that your Mom made it and sister photographed it, perfect even more so!
