Welcome To My Home

Todays the day. It's Marina @ Only cute Things, Virtual Party.' What do you love about your home?'
You can show all of your home, one room, or something special in your home that means alot to you.

Like most of us, theres a million things i love about my home and a million things i hate as well. But what i love most are the people in it. So im going to show you parts of my home that are close to my heart because of the people in it and the people i know and love..

Sams bedroom is my favourite room. Its where he tells me the news every day (sometimes about 20 times a day)while he sits at his desk..and where we snuggle up at night while i read to him. Then we turn the light out and lay down and i sing him 'our songs'. You Are My Sunshine' and 'Close To You' by The Carpenters. I've sung these to him since he was a baby.

People always say that the hub of the home is the kitchen. For me this is probably very true. Especially when mum pops in on her way home from work. This is where we end up chatting...mum on one of the chairs and me standing by the sink there...its just always been that way.....its our
chit chat spot.

My bed. Its where i can finally collapse at the end of the day and snuggle with my man *wink*

Oh and usually the 4 cats who are asleep on there too...LOL.
Like this one. My Scampy cat :)

I also love the Star i bought for Shane and I from the International Star Registry as a surprise Wedding Present.

Im also loving this fabric from Urban Gardens and have covered some favourite chairs/footstools with it for my home.
PLUS im totally LOVING the gorgeous rug they are on! Given to me by my Mummsy and Stepdad just coz they love me! I know i know, how awesome and gorgeous are they!

Last but not least.....
My phones...where i catch up on the lives of everyone i love so much. If you look closely at my mobile you can see a message from my sweet friend Mandii telling me last week to put 60 Minutes on, on my TV (Shannon Noll was on) ahh she knows me so well :)

And then theres my computer...without it i wouldnt have met you all. And for that i am truly greatful and feel truly blessed.

Yes it's nice to have beautiful things in your home but what makes a house a home is the people (and furry babies) in it....the love, laughter and memories they create.
If all my posessions were gone tomorrow i would still have the things that are most important in my home and my heart...the people i love :)

Now go get your tissues, wipe your eyes, and then hop on by and visit some more gorgeous gals and their homes!

Thanks Marina for hosting this. Ive had a ball !

Lots of Pink Kisses being blown your way....

I agree with you, it is the people that make a house a home. My kiddies are grown and have homes of their own now. But I still find them in each room. So maybe memories make a house a home also.

Thanks for the tour in pink. My favorite color is red.

Mya said...

Hi Shann,
Oh I have never seen your kitchen before, it's adorable, makes me want to sit down and catch up on the latest with a cup of coffee. I am so bummed that your shelf sold before I had a chance to buy it. It was beautiful but I am glad you sold it so quickly, good for you!!

I loved your post today.
