Hi there! Thank you for visiting Comfy House. I'm Melanie ~ wife, mama, friend, child of God.
The name of this blog was inspired by my youngest son. He said to me, "You know what I love most about our house? That it's so comfy." That really touched my heart and when I started this blog in June 2010, I knew the name Comfy House was perfect.
Here at Comfy House that I share with my husband of 31+ years and three fur babies, you won't find palatial rooms with the latest design trend, nor will you find me weaving my own cloth, building furniture, or retiling a bathroom. Instead, you will find my latest whimsies on using-what-you-have decor, healthy homemade cooking (and sometimes some naughty, fattening recipes, too...I mean, a girl has to live, right?), gardening, thrifting, and sharing my outings with friends and family. Sometimes I'll throw in some personal musings for good measure.
I actually started blogging in May 2007 under the blog name of Mel at Home. My last post on that blog was October 3, 2009 right after my oldest son, Philip passed away. You can read more about Phil on my Dedication to Phil tab underneath the header of this blog.
I'm passionate about decorating, design, wellness and healthy living. I love to read, cook and bake, go thrifting and antiquing with friends and family, practice yoga, play in my gardens, drink coffee, and dote on my three cats - Zippo, Clementine, and Monkey. I'm an introvert and dreamer and need a lot of alone time, though I love spending quality time with my friends and family and am very chatty one-on-one or with a small group of friends. So, welcome to Comfy House! Come on in and make yourself at home. Just don't mind the cat hair on the couch.
