Home is Where the Heart is.. #Handmade #Folksy

I was having a look around on Folksy and looked under kitchen and dining. There were so many gorgeous creations that I kept looking and the more I saw the bigger the idea grew.
So many crafts for the home were featuring hearts that the phrase `Home is where the Heart is` kept popping into my head. So there was nothing for it but to have that as the title and have an array of homeware crafts on here for you today.
Any of these fabulous creations would make a wonderful gift or better still a treat for yourself. Go on, you know you want to..
Yesterday I went into the city. I had a couple of things that had to be done but the main reason was to get some yarn to finish off something I was making. Well I confess that was a very bad move. I didn`t just get the one I needed.... yes I know you will be shocked... as if I could possibly buy more yarn. Hmmm...
At this point I have a bigger confession... I`m not even sorry or the slightest bit penitent. But that`s mainly because I have been busy inventing a new stitch. Well it`s new to me. I had one of those, well what if I do this moments... I practised a bit and was delighted with the effect. So with some of the new yarn I decided to try a large crochet hook and do the same pattern. And lo and behold, it looked great, well I thought so anyway.
I had to go into the bank to sort something out and the young lady was very apologetic as she tried to get the relevant person on the line. So I got out my crochet and she was fascinated. We had a lovely conversation about what I do and what I make and how I do it. She thought the yarn was beautiful, which was a great justification for having bought it. Tee Hee!
I came out feeling as though I had made a friend.
Okay enough waffle, time to get on.

Love is what makes a home
brings you back wherever you roam.
A house is just a place
made home by a loved ones face.
Beautiful things bought together
make it warm whatever the weather.
or bought for each other as a gift
will give you both and your home, a lift.
A home is where you sit your bum
and if you like you can hum.
You can walk about completely bare
do what you like when you are there.
Stay silent, it is your choice
or shout at the top of your voice.
Lay on the sofa and sleep
or watch a movie and weep.
Do lot`s of baking, if that`s how you feel
prepare a banquet or intimate meal.
Do whatever you like or should
do that makes you feel good.
A home wraps you in it`s arms
enfolding you with all it`s charms.
A home is a place to call your own
where you need never be alone!
