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.

Look what came in the mail a few days ago...
My nest banner from ML at the House of Whimsy. Can you see the cute tissue paper it was wrapped in? I love it. Isn't the banner cute?

I'm working on a shelf that will hang in my room and will be the new home for the nest banner. I'll show it to you when I'm finished.
Until then, thank you so much ML. I LOVE it! The colors in the paper cone are perfect for my room. It couldn't have been better if I'd picked it out myself.

I also need to tell you that when I was fooling around with my blog a couple of weeks ago I accidently deleted my blog list. I'm so computer savvy it scares me. I hadn't backed it up anywhere so I've had to try to figure out who was on the list. So if you were on there and aren't now, please don't get your feelings hurt. I'm working on getting it put back like it was. Mimi

The banner is beautiful and Mary Lou at the House of Whimsy is a sweetheart and talented like you are!
I am so sorry about your deleted list..arrrgggg. I did it too and still haven't found everyone! I was heart sick when it happened.
I am ready to have a separate blog like 'Pickett' on my blog list for my special blog names as a back up. This makes me want to do it soon!
(while in those woods I couldn't help but think of an other more sacred grove I want to visit someday! I can see why it was the beautiful woods he went to for inspiration.)

Sorry about your bloglist! I'm thinking of doing a seperate blog with my list or maybe just the tumblr page.

That banner is so darn cute. I really like it.
I would like to do something fancier with my blog, but I am afraid to mess with it for fear of deleting it. I'm not that great with computers.
