The Comforts of Home

                                                                     Sunday Blessings
                                                    On this bright sunny but cold Sunday I
                                                    am enjoying the comforts of home.

                                                         Snuggling in by the fire in a comfy
                                                          chair with a handmade throw.

                                                               And a cup of hot tea in a
                                                               black transferware teacup.
                                                   Yes,I do have a collection of black and white
                                                   transferware too.
                                                  Hope you have a peaceful Sunday!

                                                                           Thank you for visiting,

I would love to be sitting in that chair and reading a book. It is so cold here and getting colder.

I always enjoy your images, Carolyn. Thank you so much for posting quite often. You are an inspiration.

Question: Is Aiken House a B&B or is this all your personal living space? I've enjoyed all the photos of your home, the garden tours, the tea parties, and the boat/guest house.

I, too, live where it gets cold. Wish I had a fireplace like yours. They are can be so comforting during these wintery days and nights.

Take care, Marrianna

Carolyn said...

Hi Marrianna,
Thank you for your kind words.

This is just our home not a B&B.

Thanks everyone for your visit and sweet notes.
