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

When I first started my little blog my focus was going to be on the finishing, or at least the projects relating to finishing Mimi's Cottage. Somehow, lately, it's turned into Mimi Sue's shopping blog. I've been in California for the last two weeks, so no progress on the cottage, but some really fun shopping instead. You know I'm trying to keep the economy going. While in Temecula I had to visit Home Goods. I've visited a couple of Home Goods stores and this one is my favorite. I bought a toile ironing board cover and a quilt for the day bed in the craft room. I'll show you them later. They had cute sparkly Easter buildings and lots of spring stuff.
On Saturday we went to Old Town Temecula. They have a wonderful farmer's market there.
While in Old Town, we stopped by the Quilter's Coop on Front St. Gorgeous quilts, patterns, and fabrics
Loved that little pink stove.
he next stop was a place called Rooster Creek on Main St. in Old Town. Beautiful displays, pretty good prices.
Love the blooming flowers in February in southern California. When I lived in California, I took them for granted. Here in the frozen north, not a bloom in sight.
