A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

I found these polka dot cups at Homegoods the other day.
I love Homegoods.
I really love polka dots. Especially red and white polka dots.
They're big. Perfect for holding soup or hot chocolate on a cold winter morning.
Plenty of room for lots of whipped cream or a giant marshmallow.
But most importantly they look so good in my kitchen cupboard.
Don't they just make you happy?

Last week we visited our local garden center and
saw this adorable idea.
Painted pallets and big metal flowers.
Just perfect for the first day of May.
Kind of cute.
I'm trying to figure out where I could put one.

The robins are back! Which means spring is here!
Soooo happy about that.
It's been an extra long winter here in northern Utah.
I decided the birds needed a little help with their nests with some pretty nesting material.
So I gathered up some yarn scraps and a wire heart thing.
Cut the yarn in 4ish inch pieces and stuffed it in the wire heart thing.
And hung it in the garden.
Not an original idea, of course. Saw this on Pinterest.
I hope the birds can find it.
If they do we'll have the most colorful nests in the county.
