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.

Holiday Home Tour Part I

We had such a good time on our home tour last night. The weather was good, cold but not snowing and the homes were so charming. Every one of them different but beautiful in their own way. It was so fun to meet a couple of blogging friends, Nicole and Aubrey. Nicole even brought her mom and sis. They were all as cute as could be. This is the darling Tif's house. She has a Christmas colored house to begin with so everything looks so festive. I wish the pictures turned out better but here it is... See that sofa over on the right? Tif and her MIL made a slipcover for a couch she got at the thrift store. I don't know why I didn't get a better picture.Isn't that the cutest grinch tree?Her family room, see the glisten banner? Target $2.50 trees in red.More family room. LOVE the scrapbook paper covered letters on the tree. She made one for each of the members of her family. She has twins and another baby due in July.She even let us look in her bedroom. I just noticed no lampshade on that lamp. Did I mention she has 3 year old twins? Her cute kitchen.

More cute homes tomorrow.
OK, I'm a dork. I can't figure out how to delete this extra picture. Please just ignore....Mimi

How cute! I see she has several little sayings printed/painted on the walls, but I can't enlarge the photos. Do you know if they are stenciled on or painted? They look adorable.

This house is so adorable! I love the collections of S's on the wall and the window frame! Everything is so cute!

You're good--I haven't even downloaded my pictures. Mr Destructo's been too busy.

When I have extra pictures to delete, I just click on them (like I'm going to drag them) and then hit "delete" on the keyboard.

So far your house tour looks wonderful. Tif's house is adorable!! I love that little grinch tree and that sweet little table it sits on. What a fun evening you must have had. Can't wait to see more..

What an adorable home! Three year old twins and another baby on the way? Goodness, she gets a lot done making her home beautiful. It puts me to shame. I have 2 adult children and I can't seem to get a thing done:>)

Everything is darling but that red spotted plate I covet!
