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.

Home Tour II

The next house we visited is a new house, only a couple of years old. I wish I'd gotten better pictures but I was talking and looking and before I knew it I was out the door on the way to the next house. But here's a few...

The powder room, I loved that stitchery over the potty. She had a huge collection of all kinds of hand work, a lot of cross stitch and embroidery, framed and hung on her walls.

These yo-yos were made by her grandmother. She had them framed and they were hung in her craft room.

Some cute projects she's working on.

Now for the sad part. This was the last house I got any pictures because my camera's battery would not hold a charge. It's been giving me headaches but I've been babying it along. I was so annoyed. The mister took pity on me and took me to Costco the next day and here's my Christmas present a little early. Thank you honey. Now I can no longer blame poor picture quality on the camera. Oh, the pressure.

Awesome--that you got a new camera--and a Nikon! I think I'm too lazy to blog about the home tour, so maybe if I get my act together, I'll email my pictures to you. Just be warned--I took a lot of beadboard and molding pictures (which included a lot of bathrooms) to get ideas for our house.

The framed stitchery and yo-yos look really cute.

Oooh, Merry Christmas to you Mimi Sue. How exciting about the new camera.
I've been so out of the loop lately, but wanted to thank you for taking photos on your big House Tour night. It was very nice to come along. : )
Merry Christmas.
