Warming Up The Family Room

Cold January days have inspired me to add lots
 of warmth to our family room.


~ snuggly pillows and warm throws ~


❄   ❄   ❄   ❄   ❄ 


~ lots of texture ~


❄   ❄   ❄   ❄   ❄ 


~ blankets and wood for the fireplace ~


~ candles, too ~


And I will be right here, cozy on the sofa with my ipad,
decorating books and a warm drink. 


It's a nice idea anyway, right?

I'm so very thankful that I have a warm home and
warm blankets and a warm drink!

~ I hope you are staying warm too ~

  2. Love all your cozy touches, JoAnne! I'm also thankful for things to warm me. I saw on the news tonight that there are still people on Staten Island without shelter or heat and they're living in heated tents with others to stay warm. Love your throws! I've been having a tough time finding ones I like that don't cost an arm and a leg. I've gotten one so far ...

  8. I love the touches of blue you have added to your blue family room. It's a favorite of mine and I am adding more to our room since we have a new to us blue chair. Stay warm!

  9. I love how you've "winterized" your room. It looks so cozy and warm. We are snuggling in here too. It's just so cold outside it takes your breath away - not fun at all.

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!
JoAnne

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
