Mimi Sue's Cottage

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. Thomas S Monson

Sunday Sayings


Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses. Alphonse Karr

I loved your apron collection in the previous post. I have a red toile apron and I love it! Thanks for mentioning me!

Hi Mimi Sue,
Just wandering over from Creative Bteathing's Bog. I noticed that we had the same name and just thought I would say Hello. My real name is Maureen but when I was born my best friend, who is 10 months older than I, could not say Maureen. She said Mimi--and that has been my name ever since. So nice to meet another Mimi---your blog is lovely.

Hi Mimi Sue,
I'll bet you are having so much fun with your little cupcakes in town. I hope you're taking lots of photos to share later.
You asked if my Santa's legs were scewers...yes they are and so is one arm. Under the other arm is a pipecleaner. If you make one, you must either send me a photo by email or post about it.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
Mary Lou
