The Small Things Make A house A home

What Makes A House A Home

 

Whenever I have a new home in second life I always think about a line from one of Robert Forsts First poems…

 

“First there’s the children’s house of make-believe, Some shattered dishes underneath a pine, The playthings in the playhouse of the children. Weep for what little things could make them glad.”
[Rober Frost – Directive (1947)]

I think all to often we overlook the little things that enrich our lives, and second life is no exception. We get excited over big releases and tend to overlook the small things that create the whole. My creative style leans more towards those small things, and I always find myself meshing things to set in little cubbies and hang in the odd spaces, the forgotten places that make a house a home. So  I tend to get very tickled when I see friends who release adorable trinkets to set around the house, that make it feel lived in and real. So today I raise my glass to those of you who, like me, remember and enjoy the little things that make a house a home.
