What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

An Itch at The Old Parsonage
I get an itch every year at this time. The house looks so bare once all of the Christmas decorations are down and packed away. I do still have lights and wreaths on the porch, but plan on taking them down this week.
I've been cleaning and fluffing to make the house feel cozy this winter. I'm itchin' to move some furniture. Although, because our home was built in 1916 we have those old fashioned radiators which can't be blocked during the winter months.
I did move a chair into the foyer draping it with a warm throw and decided on a new vignette for the spinet desk. I started this amaryllis later this season with the hopes that it'll bloom by Valentine's Day.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll be by to visit soon!
