As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

{31 Days to Make a House a Home} Day 9 ~ "Throw" Out Some Warmth

Keep a variety of blankets and throws handy. 
They provide visual warmth to a room, and...well...actual warmth to a body!

We add throws to most of our seating (three seasons of the year).

I keep a big basket in the living room with extra blankets and throws...

and even the ubiquitous Snuggie®

Because everyone appreciates a little extra warmth. 

Comfy and cozy is the name of the game when you want to make your house a home

Tomorrow, I will be sharing one of the most important elements of making your house a home!  Do you have any guesses?


  1. Great idea, Cheryl! We keep one throw in each room... but end up trying to share it when it's chilly! Love the idea of a basket of them!

    I've got a guess or two about tomorrow's post! Can't wait to see what it is!

  2. I am so enjoying your "making a house a home".
    Enjoy your day.

  3. Great idea! We always pull out the throws here at our house. They just make us feel good.
