My discovery of Apartment Therapy this year has amplified my "home ec itis," and about half way through our home in it, was prime motivator for this blog. The other motivator was to try and figure out why I like what I like..."Mom did you actually frame an IKEA napkin?"
'Be it ever so humble, there is no place like home.'
"This is my daughter's winning entry in a Peace not war competition, on the Isle of Man. We decided to use the candles peace symbol for some more effect. We believe this is the extreme of contrasts which the split in the collage indicates quite clearly. At Christmas many people really want peace not war." Thanks "Daughter" and Ray for sharing this special message!
Santa and pinetree4 invite you to enjoy some old time holiday magic. Pinetree4 contributes to the tea towel group and has lots of retro pics to enjoy on her flickr. Via pinetree4 I found suzysputnik and her Woolies treat to whip up some holiday nostalgia! Thanks for the memories...
What I love about these American vintage tea towels is that the images are mirrored so you can see the entire image when it is hung over the oven rail. If one side becomes stained then there is always the other side to display.
Our first morning at home for a long time began with my daughter popping in Little Women. A great classic to remind all of us what the holiday season should be about. We decorated the tree, I made Christmas cards, and, I made steel cut oatmeal with golden raisins, apple, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel. Yum! Yum!
