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.
