what makes your house a home...

via Rummage
(if you have not checked out this blog, you must...)

Last Monday I posted an image of our son's growth chart on our hall wall. It's one of the things that truly makes our house special. It seems to have touched a chord with a lot of readers. This Monday, one of my very favs, Blue Hydrangea, gave us a lovely look into the heart of her home.  That got me thinking. Perhaps some of you would like to share the spaces and objects that make your house a home... 

Whatever the space or item is, the more imperfect the better. The more personal and loved, the better. How about next Monday? Is it a date? If you have a blog, and would like to participate, post under "What Makes a House a Home..." and leave me a comment by Friday that you plan to participate. I will do my best to post a list of links. If you do not have a blog and want to send a photo, please e-mail me at aperfectgray at yahoo dot com.

Is there really anything more beautiful than the heart of a home....?

Hmmm...how much clutter to reveal?! I do love not quite perfect. We have a "primitive" growth chart in our kitchen...even visiting nephews have penned their height achievements on it. Couldn't bear to paint it when we redid our kitchen. XO Trish
