Christmas cozy.




 This year we had snow BEFORE Thanksgiving!
The frosty trees are breathtaking.
I am in awe of them.
And it makes the house feel even more Christmas cozy inside!
Don't you love that word . . . cozy.
I do.  
Cozy. . .

Thought I'd give you a tiny tour.
This is my home at Christmas time.  At least some of it.
Welcome.
Trev made that bed with his own two hands.
It was his wedding gift to me 17 yrs ago.
I refuse to buy a new one.

 I love this old hutch.
I imagine it was in some farm kitchen long ago,
made lovingly by a farmer for his wife.
I don't know, I just imagine it.


 Just a chair in the entry.


Decorating the sideboard.
I always find it hard to decorate this piece in the entry.
Maybe because I think it is so pretty without anything on it.


My entry bench, an old church pew.
I love old wood, yes I do.


 Dine!



Did you spot Cotton?
He blends so well with the sofa.

I told you it was just a tiny tour.
Thanks for coming along.
Hope you are enjoying your own cozy home!
Especially if you have breathtaking frosty trees.

Can't wait to see it in person, Shell. Your home is always warm and welcoming. Dad and I loved our stay with you last Christmas after our fire. Miss our "secret pixies" this year!

I love your home, Shell. It's beautiful, and the feeling is always warm. I was just thinking the other day that I'll miss seeing it during the holidays, so thanks for posting these!
Oh, and I miss you guys, too! ;D

Beautiful! Looks like you must be feeling a little bit better to get all the decorating done. Sorry I missed seeing it in person this year!
