A Cosy Winter Nook in the Boathouse

Hello everyone,

On this first day on winter and
our winter solstice I have a
cosy little winter retreat
for you.

It is nice to know that our days here
are now starting to get longer.

You can curl up with a warm furry throw
and a hot cup of cocoa in my
new copper mug from Homesense.

We have a good dusting of snow 
here and our pond has a thin
coat of ice....not enough for
ice skating yet though.

Cocoa and whipped cream
with a sprinkle of cinnamon
is a favorite winter treat.

A broader view

Christmas touches add some
charm to our little nook.


       Happy Winter Solstice!
                                            I wanted to include a snowy winter
                                            shot of our little Boathouse from a
                                            previous winter when we had a lovely
                                            coat of snow. We are expecting some
                                            snow tomorrow but alas, it will be
                                            followed by rain.
                                               I am looking forward to going for
                                            a drive this evening to see the Christmas
                                            lights.....it seems every year there are
                                            more and more to see.

                                              I will be back tomorrow with some indoor
                                             shots of our home but now I better get
                                             some baking done!

                                                                           Thanks for visiting,

So welcoming, the idea of a reading nook is right up on my to-do list! Such a sweet little place, may I ask, How do you heat it in Winter? I am cold by nature and often wonder about such things! Thanks for sharing!

Oh definitely very cozy! I just love that little boathouse.. every time I see it, I want to live there! I guess I need to make a cozy corner like that in my house. Those copper mugs are so pretty, and hot cocoa with cinnamon would just be perfect, with snow falling outside. We have a frosting of snow here in central Oregon, just enough for me! xoxo Marilyn

I really enjoy your little boat house and all of the tea parties and other activities you show from there. I just wish it could be moved 'down south'.
For instance USA Texas. Here is wishing you a Happy New Year 2022
