    Awww, it’s so wonderful how you’ve already turned your new house into a lovely, warm and inviting home. It just shows that it doesn’t take very much at all…just a few touches here and there.

      You are so right, it doesn’t take much! I believe a home should represent the people that live there. It should be cozy and full of things that make you happy. The pictures of interiors in catalogues and magazines are pretty, but for most of us they aren’t attainable, or comfortable for actually LIVING in.

    Your home looks like such a cozy place to be. Looks like Poppy agrees. 🙂
