There are many recipes, patterns, and a multitude of other things to make our homes cosy and welcoming. This is my cosy corner of good things to eat and other "creature comforts"; things just to make our families, and ourselves, feel good.
It's amazing how a little colour improves things. If this little creature was black I just know I could hardly bring myself to pick it up. But I have no issue with extending a helpful finger to the wildly flailing feet of an overturned ladybug.
