What Makes Me Smile

My first ever Linky party! Woo hoo! The other day I was inspired to look through my home to see what made me smile. I had no idea it would go any further. But when Kat suggested I turn it into a Linky party, I mulled that thought over all day and decided that I very much wanted to see the same thing from y'all. If you haven't read about What Makes Me Smile, head back over there to see what started this idea.

Now, I want to see what in your home you love. What can make you smile out of the blue by just looking at it and thinking about the person behind it, or the memory it invokes. I can't wait to read your stories.



Remember, when you link up, make sure you are linking your post address, not your blog address. If you'd like the button, here's the code.

Make me smile by telling me What Makes You Smile!

I'm really impressed that you're hosting a linky party! Good for you!

I'm linking a post about my wall of crosses. They're in my living room, and they're all special to me. Looking at them always makes me smile for many reasons. But it also makes me smile just that I have something so meaningful to me right out there in the middle of my house. Years ago, I would have shied away from doing this, thinking that something so personal shouldn't be so "front and center." But it's my house, so it's okay for me to have these "front and center!" So it makes me smile to look at my crosses, and it makes me smile to have the freedom to have them on display. Thank you for letting me share them!

Oops! That first link of mine is broken. I'm such a rookie.

You can delete if you want.

Hi Heather, sorry I missed linking to your party. There are so many parties these days, mine included. But, what makes me smile is my swing.
