"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

As I've said: love those teeny houses, buuuuut...

A house I'd love to fit in!
Actually, the laundry of Withy Mills Farm!!!

To see to what heights, or smalls, an itsy-ibtsy-teensy-weensy cottage/house obsession can take you!
(There's always the addendum: just make it a little larger and...)

I do believe I'm going rather gaga, as I'm finding the ads on tv much more entertaining than the programs, and (this the gaga part) actually talk about them to my friends!
