This is a weekly feature where readers share photos and words about their favourite place at home. This week our two readers are Kirsti in Canberra, Australia and Deb in Ontario, Canada. Again these ladies are showing just how diverse and interesting we all are.

I’m in Canberra and have five kids half time. Big busy household, with two working parents and we are looking to slow down substantially (www.iheartsimpleliving.com). We are at the very beginning of our family journey, and are nearly mortgage free.
My favourite spot is our two new veggie beds – seen here when we built them over Christmas. They are now full of brassicas and broad beans and are providing yummy organic sustenance to our large family. Makes me very proud to bring to the dinner table home grown fruit and veg.
My second favourite spot is my bedroom and I’ve included two photos. One – very messy spot after I had a little op a few years ago. The room was a working room where clean, worn clothes were dumped, unread books stored and cords haphazardly strewn on top. It was far from the peaceful haven that I wanted it to be.
With a lick of fresh white paint and some new linen, as well as a bit of decluttering and organising, my bedroom is the peaceful haven that I have craved and provides a piece of peace in our otherwise busy lives.

Every-time I look out my kitchen window I see this old maple tree shading a corner of our property. It's one of those trees that draws you over and invites you to relax, take a load off and enjoy all the comfort it provides.
This gigantic maple, that was a smaller tree when I was a youngster visiting my gran, even then looked tall to me. And here I am sitting under it now, a grand-mother myself, having a cup of the finest beverage on earth and enjoying it's shade.
I will never take these big 'ol trees for granted. I love the grand old maples that circle our little spot here. This is the best time to enjoy them although the vibrant Fall colours are always admired.
With that, though, comes raking of the leaves 'til the cows come home. You can find Deb at her blog Just Cats Deb by clicking here.
