No Place Like Home

~~ This beautifully-decorated house makes me think of home, family, & friends. ~~

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home! 
 
 ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836

    1. I just love this house. Had somehow never seen it before the day I took this photo.

  3. That is just stunning, Adele. I could stand outside that home for hours enjoying the view you are sharing here. And, yes, there is no place like home...always a bit of a muddled subject for me because my home is here but my heart won't forget Pasadena and regards it home too.

  4. Mmm, super cozy and Christmas-y. I love the look of this place, and your photo caught it perfectly! Dickens knew what he was about.
