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!

Playing at The Old Parsonage
We love to play scrabble. Well, when I say we, it doesn't include DH, he's doesn't like to play games (except horseshoes). But the rest of us really enjoy it. We break it out at picnics and take it on vacation. There's just something about seeing those wooden letters sitting there waiting to become a word that excites me.
I recently bought this game at Jake's flea market for $5. Not all of the pieces are there, so this one will be delegated to craft projects and decorating. I love to use the tiles on scrapbook pages, cards or just to spell out messages and have them sitting around the house.
Speaking of things just sitting around the house... I buy old books to use the same way. They give added height to things that you are displaying and they are terrific to use in craft projects. These books are from the same junking trip to Jake's - 25 cents each and the sweet doll - just another quarter! I love those kind of days!
