THE COMFORTS OF HOME

Welcome friends to another themed shopping Friday, brought to you by Make Mine Pink. This is the time when each week the boutiques of MMP offer treasures for your shopping pleasure. Today's theme is "The Comforts of Home" You are welcome to visit my shop HERE for hand painted treasures and HERE for more shops from MMP.

While preparing for shopping with a twist, I thought of all the comforts in my own home and thought I would share with you a few pics of those treasures that bring The Comforts of Home to me and my family!

My wall of ivory crosses, with the word Faith, it is always illuminated and brings dear comfort when I see it everyday.

Favorite magazines with tea from a dear loved vintage tea set.

A cozy throw from years ago brings cozy comforts.

Comforts of home wrapped in an old quilt.

A home filled with music and enjoyed from my beloved piano.

The comfort and blessing of enough food.

The table set for a cozy dinner for two. This is the comfort of home.

Using a vintage bowl that belonged to my grandmother to hold lots of pink roses.

Or red roses filled in a gorgeous vase, brings dear comforts of home.

Having a cozy sofa and throw to curl up with a good book is pure comfort of home.

Shelves filled with books, fill a room with comfort.


And favorites always handy.

The comforts of an old vintage chair with cushions I made with grandma's handmade lace.

Seeing the world through lace filled windows is purely comfort.

The comfort of home knowing the one you love is always there.

Miss B always ready to greet with her pretty doggy smile. Ah this is the comfort of home.

The blessing of working from home. This is a true comfort.

All these comforts bring joy untold, and for this, I count my blessings.

As promised, I would like to introduce you to "Miss Corie" who I brought back home from Evelyn's Antiques in Schulenberg, Texas.

Miss Corie, being a corset stand, will certainly add to the comforts of home in my shabby rose guest room. I do not think she is truly an antique, but she looks the part with her distress and gorgeous ivory iron.

I am not sure I will outfit her since the iron is so nice to see. So for now, she wears some pearls and a hat. What do you think?

All these treasure around me, bring, "The Comfort of Home" and all that make our Home Sweet Home!

Have a wonderful Autumn Day.
Blessings to you and your comforts of home.

Good Morning Celeste Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful stroll this morning through your gorgeous home. I so love it. Each little corner has something so beautiful tucked neatly for all to see.

Now Miss Corie has stolen my heart. Antique or not she is gorgeous. I love the simplicity of her pearls and her hat. I think she is just exquisite and she definitely adorns the corner she stands in so proudly. I think she needs no more, as her elegance speaks for itself. I thank you so much for sharing her with me.

Please thank Miss B with a little scratch on her head and thank her for the warm welcome she gave me. I love her happy face. She would make a wonderful critter for the Happy Hound Dog Food, she just has such a happy face. Her little heart shines through.

Hope you have a gorgeous weekend sweetie, and may you be showered with as much love, as you shower each of us with, each and every day. You are SO loved. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Celestina Marie,

Love everything about your beautiful home and many thanks for showing us.
They say that home is where the heart is, and really feel how much you love your home and all the wonderful treasures there.
Miss Corie, is so gorgeous and all she needs is her pearls and hat, as you would not want to cover up the pretty iron work.
Hope that you are having a beautiful weekend and wish you a great week ahead.

Hugs
Carolyn
