Scrapping Everyday Miracles – February Main Challenge #25- Home

COLLEEN’S POST

 

So here is my project for the SEM February Challenge which makes me ask, ya, where do I feel most at home (aside from home)?

It was simple for me to answer this – where I grew up, where the phone number is still the same and there are still some citrus trees near the ranch despite all the development… My journal tag reads: “Home to me is where I grew up in the farming and citrus town of Santa Paula, CA. The old style Ranch house was built by my great, great, great grandfather. My mom decorates the dining room table for the holidays with a mix of family heirlooms, curious finds and more. It’s always a treat to visit, especially when he house is festive and reflective our heritage of hardworking Americans enjoying life’s simple pleasures.”

Paper collection – Prima’s Meadow Lark (thanks Kathy)

Clay flowers – Kathy’s Stash from her new molds she’s been experimenting with.

Photo – a little hard to see the whole picture, so I’m adding full pics
