Today's prompt is home.  What does home mean to me?  A place of refuge and a retreat, where I am accepted for who I am. 

It is my domain, a place where I get to make the rules. 

It means safety and security, a place to lay my head and to snuggle up, reading a book with a glass of wine nearby. 

A softly glowing candle smelling of freshly baked oatmeal cookies. 

Tidy and uncluttered. 

Shades of green and brown, taupe and ivory.  The juxtaposition of a sheer, swirly valance and a beaded, glittering ornament.

Framed photographs of my kids.

The coolness of shiny, metal appliances and slabs of deeply colored granite.  The warmth of an ivory, fringed throw and the sheen of satin pillows.
