A President of first's

Stephen Grover Cleveland was an American politician and lawyer who was the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, the only president in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office and the only President to marry in the White House in 1886.

Cleveland entered the White House as a bachelor and left a married man and father of two. His new wife was a beautiful young woman 27 years his junior named Frances Folsom. Frances was the daughter of a former law partner and Cleveland’s legal ward; Cleveland had literally known her since she was born. When she was 11, Frances’ father died and Cleveland became her legal guardian, remaining close friends with her mother. His pet name for Frances was Frank. Observers thought Cleveland would marry his friend’s widow and were completely surprised when, instead, he married Frances as soon as she turned 21.
In another White House first, Frances and Cleveland’s second daughter Esther became the first child born to a president in a White House bedroom.

Everyone's home becomes personal because of the individual likes and talents and history of  those that live there. That is why I like to have the antiques I have but I also have made a few items of decor.
This is a little embroidered piece I did many years ago and these two pictures are crocheted pieces then arranged into a picture

So what is in your home that makes it yours?

Hubby I normally only eat home once a week but we were both sick last night with colds and didn't want to venture out so I threw together this for us for dinner...
Pkg. of macaroni and cheese and a can of tuna and frozen peas and thawed blueberries with a little sweetener and ate on paper plates so no dishes:)
