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!

You Gotta' Have Friends...
I've been wanting to show you the wonderful birthday gifts from a few of my friends at work. They are such stinkers - as soon as I was how everything was wrapped, I guessed where the presents came from. Gifts were individually wrapped in old sheet music, book pages and seam binding.
Look at the beautiful vintage wallpaper border - those roses are soo dreamy. There were several old paying cards as well as a bridge score pad too.
This bag was full of all kinds of ephemera. There was also a bunch of paper milk caps, a small reader dated 1907 and some fun bling. Did you guess where they got everything from yet? Karla's Cottage that's where! I love her blog and her shop is chock full of vintage goodness!
Speaking of friends, our neighbor Maryanne popped over tonight with this gorgeous wreath. Isn't it beautiful? Her niece sent it to her and it was supposed to have a candle in it, but the candle wasn't included. so they sent her another one instead of just sending her the candle. She decided that she didn't need both and gave us the original one.
I plopped it on the corner of this chair in the foyer and think it looks fab so that's where it's gonna stay:)
Wishing all of you MY FRIENDS a wonderful weekend!
