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.

Pretty Poinsettias



I love so many things about Christmas.

Poinsettias are just one of those things.

Every year the Mister and I visit a local nursery just to
look at this beautiful Christmas treasure.  Well, and
to buy a couple to bring home.

This year I remembered to bring my camera.

AND I remembered to take a few pictures!

(A Christmas Miracle)




One greenhouse for the red...


One for the pink...


Gorgeous symbol of  the Star of Bethlehem.
