The Comforts of Home!

Grandma G's and MMP present our Friday Shopping Event,

October 29th....."The Comforts of Home"!

When I think of the comforts of home, I think of old worn sweaters, soft and faded with time. Sitting by the fire, wrapped in a beautifully pieced quilt that my mother made so many years ago. On the sofa beside me, the colors of the quilt I’m stitching, bright in comparison. A pot of tea, steeping in a favorite tea pot, sitting on a table nearby.

Throughout my home there are many framed photographs on the wall, and placed casually among my belongings. Many of family and friends that are a part of my present, others of family no longer with us, but never forgotten.

In my home, I’m surrounded by glimpses of my past as I sip my tea from the antique cup and saucer that once belonged to my grandmother. The fragrance of the potpourri simmering on the stove, reminiscent of a holiday get-together, and mingling with memories of my mother’s kitchen during the holidays. The lit candles, with their rich and spicy fragrance, cast soft shadows around the room, lighting up corners with memories of familiar voices and laughter.

The comforts of home reach out from the past and wind their way into those of the present. They are our own distinct style, with a touch of nostalgia mixed in. A place we create for ourselves that is warm and inviting and will one day become a comforting memory for our loved ones.

Come visit the boutiques at Make Mine Pink for all the “comforts of home.”

What a delightful visit I just had to your blog, after a long exhausting weekend Antiques and Collectibles Sale at our local Woman's Club! I am just learning to use the computer and planning to sell online, you are such an inspiration to me. I sell(or tried to) similar items, and have registered on Etsy as "Grandmalay" but haven't uploaded photos or anything yet. Love your music and everything! What a joy to "meet" you! <3 Grandmalay, fb: Linda Anne Layton Young
