* Cleaning supplies by Murchinson Hume

The winner of the cleaning supplies:

I love that I have finally found my own personal style which has taken me years. It’s a gift to have your home express your creativity and represent you and your family and your interests. I love the memories we have made in this house, and I love that it is comforting and welcoming to our family and friends. But most of all, I love the people in it. I’ve been thinking about everything that people have lost in the Butte fires (not far from me here in N. California) and I realize that the most important “things” are your loved ones and the memories you have made together. It’s given me a new perspective on my home and I am grateful. Even if my house is not perfect, it’s amazing to have a home and family. <3

* Amber & Moss Candle

The winner of the candle:

AND, of course, I already follow all the Art of Home gals except Kennesha, who I added the first day of class! <3 Loving the videos and getting to know you and your families all more. . .

* Boos Blocks

The winner of the Boos Block:

I love how my son is so excited that Saturday and Sunday are stay at home days. He comes into our room in the morning, climbs into bed with us, and says, “Do we get to stay home today?” And I am currently loving the way the light is changing as we enter fall and the windows are open to let the breeze in-it is my FAVORITE time of year-especially the light of fall.

* Cup Rack

The winner of the cup rack:

Mikal McPherson commented:

I love that home is where my true loves (husband and kids) gather. It doesn’t matter if we are eating beans and cornbread or the fanciest holiday dinner. It doesn’t matter if we are playing Monopoly or planting the garden. It doesn’t matter if we are laughing until we cry, or crying our eyes out in pain. We are together and I feel the greatest love imaginable.

* Immersion Blender

The winner of the immersion blender:

My favorite thing about being home is the way it feels when all my people are here together…with praise music playing, a candle burning, and something baking in the oven :)

* Rustic Joyful Foods Cookbook

The winner of the cookbook:

Home–where I can curl up in my jammies with a hot mug of something and sit by the fire–any time of day or night! Home–where the whole realm of emotions can be expressed safely, and we love and support each other no matter what the circumstances. Home–where tears and laughter are shared, multiplying joys and dividing sorrows!

* Staub Pot

The winner of the Staub Pot:

Christine G. commented:

I love that my home is a happy, loving, comfortable place to be. Although we have 5 kids living under our roof and our home is busy, it’s a peaceful place to be. I cherish the memories we’ve made in our home.

* Iron and Wine CD

The winner of the CD:

I love the peace and comfort home provides.

    right now my favorite thing about decorating my home for fall is the tree out my window that is full of gorgeous bright orange persimmons. (i am enjoying the art of home, jeanne. there is so much about it to love. one of my favorite things so far is the excitement in kennesha’s voice when she talks about different things and people she loves. i love forward to enjoying the rest of the course. thank you.)

  2. Leilani

    One thing I love about my home are the personal touches we’ve added gradually through the years. Some touches may be our hall wall consisting of old maps just pinned to it, or a bathroom wall where I made a stencil and just penciled it on there and painted over it – luckily it turned out great, or the estate-sale huge, tin spoon & fork set hanging in the kitchen… other touches like where the kids have run into the wall or pencil marks have strayed make me smile understanding that one day they won’t be so little. These are some things I love about my home.

  3. Katie Rowley

    Home is wherever my family is – where we can be ourselves, create, and mostly laugh. My husband and my girls are my everything and we spend so much time in our home. It isn’t anything large or fancy but it is comfortable and it is SO US!

  4. Jen Gay

    I love my fireplace and my dining room table where meals are shared, art is made and homework is finished.

  5. Peggy

    I love that no matter where we live it can be home!!! We are a military family so this is extremely important as we rarely live close to family. We have special memories involving food, games, and traditions which helped make each house a home.

  6. Anna

    I love making my house feel like a home and adding personal touches that really make it only our home. I love The Art of Home series and can’t wait to learn more. Jeanne, I follow you on Instagram and I’m sharing your course as well.

  7. shepea154

    i love that our home is open and accessible to our friends and family and that they seem to feel welcome and cherished here. I love it when my 2 year old granddaughter knows just where to look for her toys and treats when she comes over. She knows just where to sit when she wants to color. She knows where I keep the bath toys and bubble bath for when she sleeps over and she needs a bath. I know she feels at home here. I wish for everyone who enters to feel special and welcome and at home.

  8. Judy Holland

    I love the way home is like a warm hug. It reminds me of the story about Mary and Martha when Jesus came to visit. Mary chose the one thing, savoring the very words that He shared with the company present. That feeling of peace and joy He left for me to have. That is what home is to me.

  9. Dawn Dutton

    I live in my dream farmhouse. We have lived here close to 20 years now. I have everything I have ever wanted here. Vegetable and flower Gardens, Chickens, Llamas,
    Alpaca’s, fruit orchard. I adore keeping house and welcoming guests into our home. I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be.
    I will be following on Instagram and Facebook. I Think your class offerings inspire as well as educate us to become the women God meant us to be. Loving
    our homes, Taking care of our families, and making our creative mark on the world…..

  10. Katie Hanchinamani

    I love that my home is a work in progress! not all the time …. But I am learning to love it!! if I keep repeating that I’m sure my attitude will change too! and I love that it is where my boys will have their memories!!

  11. Kari Payne

    And of course I follow you on IG. I think this might be the most fabulous giveaway I’ve ever seen, so thank you all!

  13. Elizabeth

    I love the feeling that washes over me when I walk in my door! Relief, relaxed and rejuvenated! My happy place…my refuge…my heartstrings!

  14. Katy

    I love my over-sized kitchen island. Meals, homework, card games, epic Settler of Catan marathon games all take place there.

  15. Brendt Blanks

    What I love about home…It’s where everyday memories are made and shared with the ones I love most! I am a follower of you on IG already–love your IG! Thanks for the chance to win, this is an INCREDIBLE giveway!!! 🙂

  16. Amy Jupin

    what i love about my home is the way it makes me feel. there’s an easiness here that i don’t feel anywhere else. it’s comfortable, loved, lived in. and it’s my most favorite place to be.

  17. hollyjanecreative

    Hmm, one thing I love about home… the peace and safety of knowing it is where you belong.

  18. Kelly Webb

    Once a week I feed my teenage son and 5+ friends a hot homemade lunch. I love doing this for them and getting to know them and they love the food. Home is comfort and I hope they always feel welcome here.

  19. L. Bratton

    I love that home is a safe place where dreams can be nurtured, grow wings & fly; but if they break a wing in the process, return, heal & try again.

  20. Mikal McPherson

    I love that home is where my true loves (husband and kids) gather. It doesn’t matter if we are eating beans and cornbread or the fanciest holiday dinner. It doesn’t matter if we are playing Monopoly or planting the garden. It doesn’t matter if we are laughing until we cry, or crying our eyes out in pain. We are together and I feel the greatest love imaginable.

  21. Pam Ballard

    We bought our home last January. It has so much potential. Built in the 70’s. We are awaiting our french doors being built as we speak. One thing I love about our home as we took the downstairs bedroom and turned into a t.v. room which allows the living room as our sitting room. It houses our piano and a settee and two chairs. A place to sit at night and talk about our day before retiring to the tv. room.

  22. Candace Dallas

    After a long chaotic day at work, I savor that first moment of “Ahhhhh, home at last”. It is a moment filled with the possibilities that exist between the walking in and the next leaving.

  23. Barbara

    Our deck early in the morning when it’s still chilly and quiet or at dusk when everything is once again quiet and calm.

  24. kelynnma

    I love coming home and lighting candles and relaxing on the couch, I’m all about comfort!

  25. Becky

    My favorite thing about being home is the way it feels when all my people are here together…with praise music playing, a candle burning, and something baking in the oven 🙂

  26. Robin Muik

    Home–where I can curl up in my jammies with a hot mug of something and sit by the fire–any time of day or night! Home–where the whole realm of emotions can be expressed safely, and we love and support each other no matter what the circumstances. Home–where tears and laughter are shared, multiplying joys and dividing sorrows!

  27. Veronica Roth

    I have two homes in opposite corners of the world and the one thing which unites them for me and means my space, my home, are my studios. I usually travel with my essential art supplies bringing them form one country across the Atlantic to the second country, and the minute I lay them out on my art table, in either studio, it’s home, it’s familiar, it’s mine.

  28. Chris

    The best thing about home is coming home, no matter where you have been, or how fun it was, the familiarity of home can not be beat! That and spending time with loved ones, creating memories, in a cozy environment!

  29. Lori

    Know that my kids are adults, and have their own homes, having grandkids come to our home and making it be a special place for them too! They love to help in the kitchen, making special cookies, I’ve started showing my grand-daughter how to sew. Their Papa help them build a bird house to take to their home. How to care for the garden. Things that make a home special with fun memories.

  30. tania

    Home is where it is quiet and cozy and peaceful. Home is where I create and grow. Oh and home is where I make the best coffee :”)

  31. kampysgirl

    Hi Jeanne,
    such a generous giveaway! thank you!
    It really is difficult to pick one thing that I love most about my home. I will say that I love the peaceful serenity of it and that I know it is filled with love!
    Good luck to everyone!
    Peace & blessings, Jackie

  32. Lynda W.

    One thing I love about my home is how it creates a feeling of comfort and relaxation for my family.

  33. sweetrelishstyle

    Home for me is a dwelling place, a retreat from the everyday craziness. It a place where my domestic creations are centered. Where I can share and care for others. A place that everyone feel comfortable, non pretentious and cozy. That’s what home is to me.
    Lori

  35. Kelly Gray

    My home may not be perfect or spotless, but it is where beautiful memories are made. It is where I am creative. It is a reflection of me. It is a place everyone is welcome.

  36. Laurie

    My home is a refuge, a place where we can relax, re-charge, be nurtured and nourished in order to go out and make a difference in our world. We also enjoy providing hospitality and “loving-on” others, enabling them to take away a little bit of what we experience on a daily basis.

  37. Sheila

    One thing I love about home….for me, and my home, I love the fact that both daughters, their husbands, and 3 of my grandbabies now all live in this culdesac. I look outside, and see grandchildren playing in my yard, just like I used to see my children playing. Inexpressible blessing.

  38. Anne :Pik

    I love my home because it is filled with my childrens memories, I can be creative, I can garden, I can paint where I want and I can leave dust balls for another day. It’s the place I look forward to going at the end of each day 🙂

  39. Melissa Ellen's Loft

    One thing I love about home… It is a canvas for creativity and I love to make our home cozy, but even more, I love that home is an opportunity to invite others in… to love on them. I think that is such a gift of home… that it is really about relationship!

  40. Christine G.

    I love that my home is a happy, loving, comfortable place to be. Although we have 5 kids living under our roof and our home is busy, it’s a peaceful place to be. I cherish the memories we’ve made in our home.

  41. Christine Frandsen

    Wow, just found your blog through Rooms for Rent – love your style! Can’t wait to poke around! My favorite thing about home is the ones I share it with.

  42. Kim Caldwell

    AND, of course, I already follow all the Art of Home gals except Kennesha, who I added the first day of class! <3 Loving the videos and getting to know you and your families all more. . .

  43. Kimberly Jones

    I love that the things in our home have been gathered over the years and that they reflect the quirky, individual personalities of each member of our family! We use lockers for bookcases, a vintage industrial cart for our coffee table. Our dining room has flat files for large papers and art supplies, and a rolling library cart for current reads. My husband loves to cook so there’s always something delicious simmering on the stove, my daughter’s music playing in the background, and plenty of cozy places to snuggle up with a good book. Our home is small and humble, but it’s filled with love, laughter, and sweet memories of of the many years we’ve shared it as a family.

  44. Tori

    Well it is Friday night, so what i love about my home right now is that everyone gets to sleep in on Saturday. It happens rarily so Hooray!

  45. Tori

    Oh, and I signed up forever ago for the Art of Home course and have been eagerly awaiting its start. Loving it it so far.

  46. Stacey

    The thing I love most about home is the peace and safety that our home provides for our family as well as others.

  47. Tere

    I love the memories my home evokes. I can touch any small rememberance and instantly be taken back to that time and place and realize the joy I felt that day, when shopping or being gifted by and small item in my home. As I age, I realize it is about the memories and not the stuff. Stuff is stuff. Memories are treasures. And the small treasures make up my home………..be it a stone I picked up………..or an item.

  48. Kelly

    I love home because it’s where all my best things in life happen and it’s where all my favorite people live and gather.

  49. Cassandra E

    I love that I share my home with someone who gets my style. (Mostly.) that iron and wine cd is the dreamiest!

  50. Teddee Grace

    The antique porcelain I’ve collected over the years, each piece a miniature work of art. I would love to be able to meet the artists, artisans and the original owners of these oh so fragile but amazingly strong cups, saucers, plates of various sizes, tureens and platters. To know their history, the occasions for which they were used and how they finally made their way to me would be an amazing gift.

  51. Julia Molewyk

    I love the people in my home, the everyday ones and those who come and go. I also love that we use every inch of our home. Sure, there are times when some extra room would be nice, but we fit very comfortably here. Thanks for the chance to win!

  52. Becky J

    Oh Jeanne, I can relate to Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz- there’s no place like HOME!! My kiddos are 23, 20 and 16- we have homeschooled for 9 years now and I LOVE BEING HOME!! It is a comfort apart from the crazy schedules, hurtful situations and hopelessness we so often find outside of home! I am so blessed to have the humble home I have that is extravagant in LOVE!! Blessings to you!

  53. Sarah C.

    I love how my son is so excited that Saturday and Sunday are stay at home days. He comes into our room in the morning, climbs into bed with us, and says, “Do we get to stay home today?” And I am currently loving the way the light is changing as we enter fall and the windows are open to let the breeze in-it is my FAVORITE time of year-especially the light of fall.

  54. Shannon

    I love that my home is filled with people I love and memories in the form of pictures and found objects collected from traveling.

  55. Suzen

    I love restoring and decorating my new Victorian home that has been neglected for so long!

  56. Colleen long

    What I love about home is that it is something my boyfriend and I have created together.
