Home Sweet Home...


I found this quote in a magazine recently, and I love, love, LOVE it! It made me feel so much better about my house, about me -- and just happy in general! I'm so glad I'm providing my children with such a warm, loving environment, with plenty of poetry!

"Clutter is the poetry of our homes. It is an intimate view that is not always perfect -- a few dishes in the sink, books piled next to the bed. Everything in its place may give a certain satisfaction, but a lived-in room exudes comfort and warmth." 

~ Mary Randolph Carter, author of A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign of a Misspent Life
