Three Muses - Challenge #30 = Home Sweet Home

The aboriginals in Australia call the place of their birth their "belonging place". I've always liked that term. No matter how far we stray, there is a place in our hearts reserved for our belonging place...for home. I've tried to depict the excitement of a young couple, ready to establish a home of their own. (For more about their choice, see my blog). I hope you are all snug in your homes this holiday season, filled with the peace and content that is the spirit of Christmas. You have all enriched my life in many ways. Thank you.


  1. Bev, I was so relieved to see the post come up just now. I was going to send in the posse - not because of any perceived tardiness but because I thought you might have been ill. Your sample picture is exquisite and I love the thoughts behind it.
    My picture is on my blog.


    Such beautiful sentiments Bev- wonderful theme and a stunning piece to start us off! My thoughts of home are on my blog.

  3. It doesn't matter that you where late Bev !!
    I'm just happy that i could participate again.
    If I have time tomorrow...I wil visit your blog and "chat" a little. Oké ?
    Hearty greetings my friends !!
    my entry is on my blog.
