Warm & Cozy Christmas

 Hello everyone,

           I hope you had a lovely weekend.
         We got a couple of cm. of snow
here overnight last night.
It started while we were at
              a little country church for a candlelit
              Advent celebration.It was the perfect
           touch...gently falling snow on the
drive home.

       I took a couple of shots today of
              our library. It needs a bit of tweaking
         and our tree isn't up in here yet but
     still I am enjoying the cozy look.
    The tablecloth is leftover fabric
         from the curtains that I was happy
      to get at a thrift shop last year.

       Another angle of the room.

Our tree in the library last year.
We always put a real tree in here
    so it can't go up for week or so yet.

Tea by the fire is always
a nice winter treat.

   Get warm and cozy while
you enjoy a cup of tea
by the wood burning

The boathouse last year
      far this year it is still in summer
mode....slow I know!

                                               So, what about you are you all
                                                         decorated for Christmas?

                                                            Thank you for visiting!

Definitely warm and cozy looking...and very inviting. When you get your tree up it will be the "icing on the cake". Looks fabulous! All the halls are decked here!

Your Library does indeed look warm and cozy. Here in N FL we had highs in the upper 80's today but we are having evenings around 58*. That feels near perfect but at Christmas I would love to be having those warm and cozy fires in the fireplace. Your warm and cozy Library looks so very charming. I have all the collections out and am decorated for Christmas with the exception of our tree. We plan to decorate it over the coming weekend, it will be delivered on Wed. and we expect cooler temps by the weekend but we won't have snow, I wish. I can enjoy your beautiful snowy bliss through cyber space and I thank you for that.

All so lovely, Carolyn! Your library is warm and cozy and I love the pretty curtains and table cloth. The reds in the boathouse are pretty too. I'm very slow getting my decorating done this year. The tree is up and the lights are on it but I have to decorate it yet. Wish I had some little elves to help me! Enjoy your week.

Yes, I have started, but won't finish until the tree is up in the next week. It is such a festive time of year.

Your library looks so cozy with the fire burning Carolyn. I just finished decorating the tree tonight after fighting with lights. :) Do you think we'll get that snow on Thursday/Friday? Enjoy.

It is March, and Christmas is long over, but these photos made my heart smile today...Is it wrong to say I wish it was Christmas now? Spring is just around the corner, but there's something about the winter holidays that's so comforting and wonderful that no other season of the year offers. What kind of tea do you usually serve when it's cold outside?
