That's a very nice entry; I like all the flowers and plants :) I always enjoy getting home, you know the saying "there's no place but home"betty
Aw, Betty, you are so right. I enjoy being home. I spent this weekend working on my favorite 'entrance,' the side patio. When it's done, if ever, I'll post a photo. Maybe it'll be as pretty as that one above.Side note: I loved your a-z post today, and the recipe is great!!
Returning home is usually a downer for me. I much rather being out and accomplishing things.
Michael, I don'y know anything about your situation, but I can offer that, it doesn't have to be that way forever.I think I had to define, for myself, what I wanted 'home' to be. I started out simply defining one room I really felt comfy in - my studio, or maybe it was the kitchen - where I painted a three foot mural of the ocean and three sailing ships!Then again - some people never really 'need' a home - "home is where the heart is..." find that Michael, and be happy!!! (smile)
Thanks Dixie, I love your encouragement :)
A welcoming entrance Dixie shows a house with love and feelings.
I wonder, Yvonne, how many people really want a welcomed sight when they arrive home? Does it dispel the day's 'boo-boos'?Thank you - will see you soon (smile).
Nothing like the feeling of getting home after a hard day. Though I work at home, so it doesn't apply too much to me!
I do too, but I want an outside that lets me get away, if only momentarily, to a different mood. I like taking my small tape recorder and speaking freely while looking at a freshness that has no roof or walls. Just me, ha!
Very cute... and yes. Once you are home, you completely feel free:)
I so agree, Tania, and I love your post at Untethered Realms today!
is that your entrance?
No - the camera is broken, and the God-daughter's camera needs recharging. But I would love to have some of those plants.
An entrance a welcome treatfor the folks you meeta place of sweet retreatto kick your shoes off your feetbreathing a sigh of reliefHome Sweet Home repeatsOkay, I'm not a poetic, as you know, but I just couldn't resist. This fell off my lips. lol
Oh, my, Miss Cathy - you may wax poetic any time here! I love your poem :)
my entrance would look crappy, so all would leave me be and then on the inside, fun and fancy free
Hahaha, PatI hear that!
Dixie, a beautiful entry way. Love all the flowers and vines.
Linda Kay - it's not mine but I would like to emulate some of it for my side entrance patio.
Delightful looking entrance. I just read your egg comment on Elizabeth's blog. I was interested in your diabetes comment. Could you email me about this. My addy is Prideth at rogers.com
Sure Jo, I'll look to see what information I have stored on this laptop. Most everything was on my computer that crashed.
Since I just moved, I'm working on making an entrance I can be proud of. :)
I think that's wonderful news. I hope you like colors. Some choose a variety and others go monochromatic.
our home has a lovely entry way- we moved here 3 years ago and my sweetie has done ALOT of improvements! Cheers! I am enjoying your theme!
Hi Kathe! Sounds like you've got this one covered. Maybe you're ready for the next letter in the challenge!
Very beautiful and very envious!
Don't be envious - this is one has elements I like, but it's not my entrance. I would love to have the electric pink Geraniums!!
Love the entryway, Dixie! Yes...Free....Home is definitely my refuge :)
Me too Sharon! My picnic table is the easy go to, just a few feet from the door, but breakfast in the Gazebo is a lot of fun. Crazy squirrels, chipmunks, and rabbits out in the early morning.
What a lovely way to be welcomed home! Love the flowers.
I saw some electric pink Geraniums I want. We'll see... Thank you.
Hi Dixie. It often occurs to me that the way a person presents the entrance to their home is a kind of statement that they make to the world about how they see themselves or wish to be seen. There's nothing wrong with that of course but its interesting....Listening to the eccentric, unstable, late English singer Kevin Coyne's Marlene CLICK HERE for Bazza’s fabulous Blog ‘To Discover Ice’
Oh, Bazza, I'm think I'm too selfish to care what some may think. I want to pull the driveway and see my hard work, smiling back at me. I want to small animals scurrying around the block walls I've laid. I want to sees and butterflies flitting from one plant to another. I want to be in life.Not sure why, but in this song of Kevin's, I hear Rod Stewart. Thank you for the music link (smile).
I want to be able to type faster than I think. Haha!
I definitely feel free at home :) Love the inviting pic...wish my entrance looked as good!TheCyborgMom
Me too. This is not my entrance but I did find some flowers I want at mine.
Sweeeet...love the poem and the entrance.
Thank you, Cathrina!
Beautiful image and poem. I definitely feel free at home, but my entrance doesn't look that spiffy at the moment.
Mine either yet, but I'm making headway. I just wondered what people like. My home is a beach theme inside and out. I have seashells, driftwood, and have a couple of flower selections to blend in.
We actually have a plan to work on the entrance to our house this summer. We live in LA where the water shortage will start to cut down on lawn watering. We're looking at turf, drip irrigation and drought tolerant plants. Coming home is such an important part of my day, I don't want dirt and dead bushes leading me to the front door :) You can find me here:ClarabelleRant
I found you - just left there!
This entryway is so inviting! I do feel free at home, especially when my hubby lets me out on weekends! Great choice for "E!"Julie
Julie, you are too funny (smile).
Thank you for visiting me. Want to add your thoughts?
