H is for Hobbit House, our Happy Home


Home is a hobbit house half hidden every spring when our ornamental crabapple tree is heavy with blossom.


H is for huge trees hovering over our hobbit house and hot tub.


H is for haphazard color scheme when I re-did in my bathroom, with help from my friends. But hey, I think it works!


H is for husband and his (our) happy dog when we adopted her from SOS Pet Rescue in Redcliff, Alberta.

Your bathroom is full of Happy color and what a glorious Crabapple tree so full of Heavenly blossoms.

EG Wow said...

That sure is a colourful crab apple tree! I like the reflection in the bathroom mirror. :)

aka Penelope said...

Hi Kay, If I were a hobbit or NOT I would definitely love this house!

noel said...

aloha,

i've never played this meme, its fun and colorful like your place, thanks for sharing your world

mrsnesbitt said...

Loved the bathroom - quite HIPPY ! lol!

Kay L. Davies said...

Dear Penelope, I love you for saying that, and you would have loved the house indeed before we bought it. It had been tidied and prettied within an inch of its life (what they now call "staging") and it was adorable. Of course, now it's littered by two paper-packrats to the extent that it makes me scream, so it would make a minimalist like you faint from horror. But thanks!!

More than a Handful of Happy Hs here, Kay. Your Hobbit House is fit for a Handsome Couple!

Leo said...

I like that bathroom, very colourful. If that doesn't wake you up in the morning, nothing will.

Kay L. Davies said...

You're absolutely right, Mara, and I need all the help I can get. LOL

Reader Wil said...

Thank you for sharing these photos! I love crabapple trees when they are in bloom! I've got one in my frontgarden and a Japanese Cherry! Your dog is adorable and looks happy!

Rumya said...

Oh, that looks like a fun bathroom!! It surely works for me!!
Have a great week...

Riet said...

Hi Kay. Mid April will be nice to visit Holland again. There will be tulips in the glass houses and you will be able to visit the windmills if you want that. Be sure to contact me again when you are coming to this country. I could give you some hints then.
Hsve a nice day!

Nanka said...

Love the crabapple tree. Looks beautiful and I can imagine the pleasure it gives you when it is in full bloom!!

Gramma Ann said...

What a great post for H day. I love the many colorful pictures, but, I think I like your bathroom best, full of color.

Julie said...

Hah! Even your font is an H word.

I had never thought of the 'husband' word, but then again, I have not had one of those for many a long year now.

Wendy said...

Your post matches mine perfectly as my "H" if for "Hobbits"! And I know Hobbits would love your house, I do :)

Hildred and Charles said...

Love your house and your beautiful blossoms. You have a great collection of H's here, Kay.

Cheryl said...

I love that you call your home a hobbit house. Your friends took great photos for you to share on ABC H.

Mama Ko said...

I love your bathroom and the spacious outside.

Kay L. Davies said...

Thanks, Mama Ko. You're right about the space outside: we have a little house on a large lot in a small town in a big country. ;~)
I'm glad you like my bathroom. I like it, too.

Hi Kay, thanks for dropping by Petty Things In Life

wow, the cherry blossom is awesome, so sad it won't thrive in the phils... sigh!

My abc wed is up.

Carol said...

Things that appeal to my Heart: flowering trees, Hobbit Houses, color in the bathroom and wonderful puppies! Oh yes, and husbands.

Kay L. Davies said...

Oh yes, Carol, husbands too, somewhere after puppies! LOL

Wonderful photos and words for the letter H. The tree is so beautiful in bloom.

Leslie: said...

I think your bathroom works very well, colourful to wake you up in the morning! Love your dog! :D

Paula Scott said...

That is a wild and crazy, but happy, bathroom! It's nice to have help. Wish I could see more of that Hobbit House! Guess I'll have to wait for some other time!

RuneE said...

I'm all for Hobbits. The Lord of the Rings is my favourite book - ever. I first read it 30 years ago. I envy you living in a Hobbit's Garden

PS Thank you for the comment. Helios in this case was the Greek personification of the sun - giving me another H for the title :-)

Marina said...

Your WORLD seems to me really...blue this week! Ow, I love sea!!!! And I miss it a lot!Imagine that I was near it for the last 30 years of my life!
I like the happiness and love that comes from your family and house! I wish you're always this way!

Willa said...

Nice looking bathroom, so colorful!

Dimple said...

Love your hobbit house, including the colorful bathroom and happy dog! Thanks for the visit, your comment made me laugh! I used to want an earth-sheltered house, but i settled for a mobile with expando!

Dave said...

what a wonderful find for letter H.

thanks for viewing my blog and for your comments.

VioletSky said...
