come in...

If you are a dreamer, come in,

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

A hope-er, and pray-er, a magic bean buyer...

If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire.

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin,

Come in!

Come in!
-Shel Silverstein
 This banner makes me smile every time I see it..hanging in the entry way for visitors to see...encouraging them to feel at home...
It's made up of some of my favourite things to play with lately.. sweet smelling burlap..beautiful lace from my aunt- which I didn't want to give up; so I created something for myself to keep.. drop pearls and clear beads..chippy white jingle bells.. wonderful bits of trims(again, too lovely to give up) big ole buttons..its love; pure and simple. I have some pretty mini doilies to add to it..a little bit more bling for the buttons..but for now it hangs with its sweet shabby goodness brightening up my days at home.
Hope you are having a lovely day!
