In the stillness of the winter, our little heart patters for peace after the excess pleasure of the holidays. The winter months following Christmas bow humbly beneath other celebrated months and breathe quiet simplicity and fresh starts into our lives.
We all organize, set goals, and create a fresh canvas to create another masterpiece new year. It's an opportunity for each of us to make our house that winter snow painting of a cozy home of comfort!
Time is reset to a refreshing word: BEGINNING.
passions of making a house a home rest around these walls
Wintertime is the season of baking in a toasty kitchen
with the oven heat and sugar smells warming little spirits
White chili, traditional chili, hot chili, mild chili...
just please pass the chili and a square of cornbread too!
Paperwhites standing in full bloom
in the breakfast sunshine
And new paperwhite bulbs peeking out,
ready for their waltz with winter.
My sweet best friend surprised me
with this candle with a wick made of wood!
It crackles as it burns, sounding like a real deal fire.
Ice skates and felted snowballs
This mild winter has me
wishing for sparkling snow
and a winter wonderland.
A giant pinecone plays peek a boo
A huddle of live greens stand out
during the months of brown landscapes
A jar of fresh handmade soaps by Sarah on the bathtub
ready for a fresh new year!
Fun, bold striped mittens tied around a lamp
And what really matters...
anthropologie sweater pattern candles
(just like they deserve!) ;)
And one of my very favorite things!
...you all know it by now!
please fill my arms with lots of
Because soft cozies rates almost as high as diamonds.
My always showcased UGG pillow!
Double love it.
Titus working hard on a table full of home school stuff
teaches take pictures for her blog.
My Pottery Barn heaven cloud that my parents spoiled me with for Christmas!
Currently reading on this heaven cloud...
And with this
cartful of winter snuggles,
we are ready for sledding days
and fireside game nights!
Pier 1 sweater pillows stuffed in a cart...
My newest pastime is knitting.
I keep my knitting supplies in an
antique water bucket
right next to my heaven cloud bean bag.
This is just SO perfection. ;)
However, instead of knitting or other cool stuff,
I spend so much time...being Facebook crazy
(and blogs and pinterest and...everything else online).
Go ahead, say I have no life.
Say it's a useless waste of time.
I still love it.
That's a wrap on winter in our
home sweet home.
and be blessed!
