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.

Sunday Sayings

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather recognizing and appreciating what we do have."

Very very true.

My dad had cousins everywhere.....lots of Hunsakers and they say somewhere we're all related. :-D Abraham Hunsaker and his many wives!

Enjoy this new week

Love this one. Like my son's piece of crap car. Once he realized a new sports car wasn't in his stars, he became thrilled to deck out his POS and has found great joy giving it a custom paint job, putting a ski spoiler on the back and an "Aoooga!" horn. See? Happiness with what you have. :)

Hello Mimi~I've a deep passion for pink!! So, your pretty flower "tickles me pink!":-)
We were graced with sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest over the weekend. It made our Dogwoods so happy...they produced the most luscious pink blooms.
I'm truly appreciative of the simpler things in life....a single bud blooming.
I think I've got a Tutorial you'd like. stroll on by for a visit and take a peek.

Sweet wishes,
