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.

Parties and House of Whimsy

First of all, I'd like to say how much fun I had at the porch parties. There is so much decorating, gardening, thrifting, and cooking, inspiration out there! Loved it all. Plus I got to meet lots of new people and see lots of gorgeous blogs. How can you have more fun than that? Thank you Rhondi for hosting such a fun party.

Today I want to tell you about a darling girl that has been such an inspiration to me in so many ways. ML has a wonderful blog called House of Whimsy. She has an adorable Mom, cute children and grandchildren, a gorgeous home, and now she has an Etsy shop. Which was full of cute stuff but things seem to be flying out of there at an alarming rate. So you'd better hurry on over and take a look. She's also having a giveaway and she's giving away three awesome things she's made. (Separately so you have three chances to win).

This was in her shop but I just bought it. Sorry.

Thank you so much Mimi-Sue.

Your porch is absolutely adorable and so full of the same wonderful & magical whimsy as ML loving puts into all she does. I enjoy her Wednesdays with mom!
Thanks for the visit. The wedding reception took place in your neck of the woods by Lagoon. I wondered if you would recgognize the mountains!
Thanks for sharing! I love what you bought from her etsy shop!
