A Review of The Christmas Boathouse

                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                    I am back again with a review of the
                                                   Christmas Boathouse.
                                                        A porch vignette to start off with.

                                                                 The Boathouse decked for Christmas ~although
                                                                  this was taken a couple of years ago,it looked
                                                                  very similar this morning as we had a good
                                                                  snowfall overnight.
                                                 Although some of you have seen these photos in
                                                 the past I wanted to share a quick overview today.
                                                                    Bella making herself comfortable ~
                                                                    she is our grandchildren's new puppy.
                                                              On the opposite side of the room ~
                                                              a comfy bed to curl up in.
                                                                      The conservatory on the back
                                                                      has a cozy English look.

Looking down from the loft.

                                                Today, I went up to the loft that is our grandchildren's favorite
                                                spot in the boathouse.
                                           A tea time all ready for a visitor.                            
                                                         A red and white toile quilt ties in with the
                                                         look of the rest of the boathouse.
                                                           I love mixing in some tartans.
                                                                 A tea time for you before you leave.

A review of your gorgeous spaces all decked in its holiday splendor is a real treat, Carolyn! Going to be watching for those holiday tours. Sure gets me in the spirit to get my decorating done. I have our house in a real messy uproar right now, one step at a time, yes?

Carolyn I so enjoyed my tour of the Boathouse this morning, such a delight. I could easily snuggle down in there for the winter.

Sandi said...

I just clicked on the news and was hit in the face with a feeling of yuckiness. Clicked off that real quick and came here instead. Ahhh! Bliss!

Sarah said...

Carolyn, I could see your images again and again and always want to come back for more. Your boathouse is so charming. I'd love to snuggle in by that pretty tree or spend the night in one of your comfy beds.
Thanks for sharing.

Lori @ Dining Delight said...

Aaahh, so beautiful! Love your pictures and your décor in your boathouse. Maybe I've missed it in the past, but how do you use your boathouse? Is it for guests, do you stay there or is it just a lovely "play house" for you to pretty up for your garden tours? You've done such a marvelous job with this fantastic space! I'd love to curl up with one of your cups of tea and a book there!
