My Cozy Boathouse Nook

                                                                      Happy Weekend!

                                                     Now that autumn is in full swing I decided
                                                     to give my favorite little reading nook in the
                                                     Boathouse a warm and cozy look and feel for
                                                    these cooler days.
                                                 So I dug out my muted brown curtains and
                                                 lined the side panel with cream crochet lace curtain
                                                 panel. I love the wool blanket so warm and cozy.
                                                   My autumn teacup with a honey crisp apple
                                                   and a good book is all I need to relax and
                                                  enjoy a relaxing afternoon.
I picked a lovely autumn bouquet
from the garden to admire.

                                                          An Autumn wreath on the window
                                                          and some lighted candles.
                                                            The antique needlework pillow
                                                           was a yard sale find.
                                                         The lace bed skirt was also a curtain panel.
    When the sun isn't shining to warm it
     up a little a small heater does the job.

                                                  Well,now you know where I will
                                                           be relaxing on these lovely autumn days.

                                                           I am joining The Rose Garden in Malevik
                                                           for Show off Saturday.

                                                            I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Just lovely. I'm glad this is at your house and not mine because if it was mine I would be fired from my job. It's so beautiful I'd never leave.

How beautiful this spot looks, Carolyn! I would really enjoy laying here reading with that cozy throw on top of me. I could also see taking a quick doze while reading. : ) Those curtains are beautiful. I know you find such wonderful curtains at thrift stores and I wouldn't be surprised if you told us these came from one, too.

How would one ever get out of that cozy nook area to do anything else? I think I could read an entire series of books and be perfectly happy - long as someone brought me a hot cuppa now and then. : - )

Warm and wonderful, Carolyn - love your flowers too for that fresh burst of colour!
