Homes and Holidays

The well-dressed home is always one that makes one's heart go pitter- patter..Your home should shout, " Please come... You'll be glad you did"... When nurtured with love there will be natural beauty and charm that surrounds you... Celebrating holidays and everyday life in our homes is a wonderful thing that happens to us in life... As we are entering into the weeks of the Easter celebrating our homes become special places no matter where we reside, from New Orleans, Key West, a mansion in Charleston, or my modest little ranch in Ohio... Easter should mean the celebration of Jesus rising to new life and Easter baskets filled with treats for young and old... The egg shape helps us to think of the stone that was place over the entrance of the tomb. Using fresh flowers and plants in your home is a sign of celebration... Yes, Easter is waiting right around the corner.. thoughts of Spring, candy and bunnies with eggs all come to mind.. As we enter this holiday , we find baskets, candy, and sugary eggs instead of a cross and empty tomb... A bunny that brings eggs instead of a savior who brings life... It is rewarding to also add richness with spiritual meaning along with the melting chocolates... Spreading the joy of home as many are unemployed or worried about job loss, concerns with family and economic difficulties, we can spread our faith, hope, and love in our surroundings and sharing.. The family and the home is our foundation.....
