Home Is Where The Heart Is

The theme on InchybyInchy this week has been Home is Where the Heart Is.  I made my inchie a few days ago - then promptly lost it!  Well they are tiny!  I luckily found it this morning under a pile of stuff, just in time for the challenge!  I used an image by HOTP as usual.
