Between Friends

"Between loving friends
there need be no secrets. . .
the trusting heart is always safe
with another who truly cares."

~ Anglund~

This little tea house is part of a scene on my back porch.  It greets guests and family as they enter our home.  Do you know the saying "Back door friends are best"?  That's how it is at our house.  The front door greeting is a simple porch light.


  1. That's a beautiful little house...part of a collection? And such a nice quote. I'm much in need of tea just now so off I go to read a magazine and have some. Your blog post just popped up so I had to run in to see it. I'm crazy curious that way.

  2. That's a nice way to welcome guests. Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan from

  3. what a lovely way to greet your guests!!! I have a collection of porcelain houses/buildings but only leave them out during the holidays...I may have to rethink that!

  4. What a great welcome! Our back door ends up being the deck door and people that come in that way are the best :0)

  5. What a sweet way to welcome your heart-guests. Is it candle lit?
    It is so cute!

  7. Back porch entrances are extra special. It is so much more intimate.
