The winner of the CD from the last challenge is Julie of Rats in Lab Cancer!
Some of you have been following Sandy from Momisodes and the journey to owning a home – this is their moving weekend! HOORAY!
Lou and Lotus got together and organized a huge toast to Sandy and her family’s new adventure and this got me thinking about getting settled in a new home and what makes a home feel like a home to me and to you.
This week’s challenge is to share what makes your home feel like home to you, what makes you feel peaceful and settled?
Lets open our homes to Sandy, as she opened hers to us today. Post on your blog between now and next Sunday and sign Mr. Linky here.
This week’s prize is a wine rack – I’ll be back later with a photo and to edit this post with what makes my home feel like home – right now I’m anxiously awaiting Scout’s arrival after being gone all week – and what makes him love his home is not tripping on things as he comes in the door in the dark – so I need to make sure that happens for him. (I mean, uh, no, clearly, I NEVER clean like a fiend in the hour before he walks in the door.)
Ahhhhhhhh….now this is a topic I am all too familiar with!
I’ll get to work.
Mary Alice’s last blog post..For Me?
I honestly have no idea. I have been bouncing from house to house since I was 14, and never really stayed in one for any amount of time.
I will maybe have an idea in a month when we are settled in our new place.
Veronica’s last blog post..Questions and Small Annoyances
i haven’t really gotten used to having my own house yet. still trying to figure it all out.
Hmm, difficult one! I think the things that make my home “home” are actually my boys! lol
also… my own bed and cosey covers 🙂
I’ll take on this challenge – sometime this week.
Ree’s last blog post..What Not To Do In An Interview
Your cleaning before Scout comes home reminds me of the time J was TDY and came home a week early. I seriously told him to come back in an hour. Yes I missed him, yes I was surprised. So surprised in fact I couldn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t allow him to see what had happened to the house over the 6 weeks he was away.
I love this ?¢‚Ç¨?ìhouse a home?¢‚Ç¨¬ù idea and will (fingers crossed) participate in this weeks Showin Off Saturday. Maybe it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s the wine rack calling my name.
SJSFalter’s last blog post..Ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity
I still don’t know either. We’ve moved across the country twice, and each time had to get rid of all of our worldly posessions, as they’re cheaper to replace than to move 3,000 miles. So we’ve gotten used to a very zen existence, having very few things and nearly empty rooms. We prefer it that way now, and other people’s houses look so cluttered to us. But making it a home? I dunno. The defining moment for us is probably getting the computers set up.
Marie’s last blog post..The Path to Natural Beauty
And this challenge may be impossible for me, since man, life is unsettled and not so peaceful right now. I am going to have to think about this one…huh.
