Home is Where the Art Is

Porcelain shells
Porcelain shells made by the very talented Paula Valentim.
Filled with little bits from the ocean.
With my beautiful collection of crochet covered stones by my dear friend Margie
She's coming to visit all the way from snowy Canada next month & I'm so excited to finally meet her in person! One of the highlights of 2011 for sure.
Chubby Bonsai
This lovely 15 year old chubby bonsai is the newest member of our family.

What a great title, It is so true, what warm and welcoming photographs, I LOVE that plant you have. You should see my room, it has about 11 potted plants in a room the size of a walk in closet, lol.
