:: bits of our home ::

Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of confidence. It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts. It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule. ~Frederick W. Robertson

Our home is not big nor fancy but just cozy enough for our lil family. So grateful that we did not get affected by hurricane Sandy and prayers to anyone north of us that was affected.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween! Taking Kaylee trick or treating tonight!


  1. I love the cute little details that you have. It doesn't matter how big a house is, all that matters are the people in it :)
    Hope you're well and glad that you weren't affected by Sandy...My town did alright compared to others on the coast.

  2. Your home is very stylish and beautiful Yvonne. I have always adored your sense and style for decorations. My house is a mess. The egg crate jewelry holder is awesome. Perhaps i can recreate using real egg crate :D

  3. I love your home! It's so pretty.

  4. I love the idea of the egg crates for storing jewellery :-)

  6. Love these posts about your home!

  7. I'm so relieved to hear that y'all are safe & sound!!

    I love these snippets of your home, so much like pages from vignettes from Domino Mag! I appreciate cozy homes w/ so much character--would rather have that than a mcmansion beige box!! We have the smallest house of all our friends & I wouldn't have it any other way.

  8. Love the bits of your home. :)

    So glad to hear you and your family are safe from Sandy! Hope your daughter had fun trick or treating.
