Welcome Home....

Is it wrong to just feel so warmly welcomed when you pull up to your own home?

One of my favorite things about Sweet Bee Cottage is how inviting it looks as I drive up after work.  

Our kitchen is on the front of our house and it's where everyone always hangs out.
One day I'd like to have a little bit of a front porch on Sweet Bee Cottage, but for now, my cherry plates on the wall will have to impart that front porch cottage feel.
And there's always a little something to the left of the front door to welcome me home.
And then I glance at our address plaque that we bought at the Judy Buswell Studio in Willamina, Oregon on a trip Worker Bee and I took shortly before I got pregnant with Baby Bee.

I love it when a story goes with the things you own.

(By the way - we adored Portland!  I seriously could move there.  My favorite part of Portland you ask?   Why Java Man espresso joints!  First place I ever had a Mexican Mocha!  YUMMMMM!)

But I digress, as usual.....
And then there's Sam (the cat who thinks I belong to him) waiting and trying to break in.  
He's a sneaky one, that rascal Sam.

Waiting on the other side of the door?

 Why it's Worker Bee and Baby Bee all snug as bugs in rugs
•••••••and Worker Bee greets me at the door with a fresh latte•••••••
and we all snuggle into our evening at Sweet Bee Cottage.

Oh yeah!  Truth in advertising and all....Worker Bee DOES NOT greet me at the door with a fresh latte, but a girl can dream, right???

Thanks for buzzing by for a visit!
I hope one day, you too can stop for a visit and I won't let you down.  I'll have that latte waiting for you when you come in the door!

  8. It is a blessing indeed to feel that way, I agree!
    Love the plates on the wall out front. What a great idea!
    Thanks for the reminder to finish my coffee. It's in the kitchen...better run and get it now!

  9. Our little cottage is a cozy little haven for us, too. And I'm drinking coffee at this moment. You really had me a little jealous when you said Worker Bee greeted you at the door with a latte.

  10. I love the cozy look of your house! I like for mine to be cozy and welcoming all the time. It just feels cozy when I have the things I love around me :) I just don't drink coffee!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
