An Inn At Home


Someone asked me today to tell them what I would like to do in this season that would be restful. I would like to go to take tea at an inn somewhere One evening.

Since I could not go to an inn, I decided to create a few elements of an Inn, here at home.

In my mail box was this velvet heart that someone sent men there was no letter and no explanation, but I sure liked the way this ornament looked on one of my plates.

This card had such a homey scene I want to share it. There is no artist mentioned. It tells a story of home traditions.
Here is another house tour scene. Above you see part of a room which is a cozy seating area, with the little skates on the wall that I made from felt and metallic paper,

...and here is close view of ornaments on a gold and white tree.

I finished two of the dresses made from that good-quality blue fabric with snowflake print and will try to post pictures soon.

I just love the picture of your sitting room with the decorated mantle-piece. It looks so cosy and inviting - beautiful

Merry Christmas

"An inn at home"
That is how I have been thinking of our home. As much I appreciate the privacy our home gives, I have always loved to think home as an inn. Making beds can be dull, but if you have an inn it is a totally different case! You want it to be beautiful, at it's best :-)
I love to browse websites of hotels - no, I do not seek a destination for a vacation, but just for pure inspiration. And of course there is a lovely site at!

Thank you for sharing your inn! Have the most joyous Holidays!

Thank you. I hope to make some more dolls today, a
As I decided I need to see more smiles. I also have a couple of paper projects. My house is still not in the best order. The day after christmas I took extra care to clean the kitchen, going i to more detail, and it took five hours
So I think I will take a break today and do some more relaxing things.
