When I got up this morning, it was just starting to get light outside
and there was a fresh coat of snow on the ground.
It really put me in the mood for something like this.

A little getaway in a cozy cabin.
Something to chase away the winter doldrums.
Especially if it looked like this.

The kitchen is so pretty.
We just need a big pot of soup on the stove, right?

Just one more big, fluffy comforter on the bed and it would be perfect 
for our 10 degree morning.

I think this sweet puppy dog has the best spot in the house, don't you?

You're welcome to join me ~
I'll have the hot chocolate ready!

Thanks A Bunch For Visiting!



  1. That's a beautiful cabin. It's the perfect combination of masculine and feminine. I wouldn't want to live there because I'll pass on all that snow. Looks like a wonderful vacation spot though! :)

  2. Yes! That's perfect! I'd love to live there all the time. Thank you for sharing this lovely cabin. What a place to relax and dream and enjoy the warmth inside.

  3. Lovely cabin! i think it balances perfectly rustic wood and white.

  4. Hi JoAnne,
    What a great cabin. I was swooning over this sweet place.

  5. Beautiful cabin!! We rented a cabin in the mountains of Tennessee a couple of years ago in November and loved it.

  6. Love the cabin. We have a doggy that looks just like that. Our guy is a bit on the skinny side though.
    It has been a winter wonderland for sure this year, hasn't it. Have a good week-end.

  7. Oh my, what a snugly elegant cabin! It looks so pretty with the windows glowing in the snow.

  8. Lovely! Oh to sit by that fire and watch the snow fall. I'd better go put another log on my own fire.

  9. A very lovely cabin! I LOVE that kitchen so much. I'm so swooning too!

Family Room Reveal

Hello Everyone!
I've been meaning to post about our updated family room for a very long time and I'm
 finally doing it - yeah!!
I had been ready to replace our brown leather furniture for a while and when a new Ikea opened very close to us last summer, I jumped at the chance to take a good look at their slipcovered furniture. Originally the plan was to buy another sofa and loveseat like we had but when I  saw the Ektorp sectional on the showroom floor at Ikea, I was sold.   It just seemed so cozy and I could really envision it in our family room.

As you can see, we purchased the sectional with the white slipcover. You just can't beat the prices at Ikea and the quality is definitely good enough for us.
I'm at a point where I don't want to buy expensive furniture that I feel like I
have to keep forever.   We even had the sofa delivered and they took away the old sofa and loveseat  for a very small fee.

We purchased this dresser from Wayfair to use as a TV console an…


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.



A Sweet and Inspiring Kitchen

I happened upon this kitchen recently on the blog, Natural Calico. This adorable and charming space resides in Ireland and it's owners refer to it as their "economical hand painted bespoke kitchen".

So many cute details like this chalkboard used as part of a coffee station. 

And this retro fridge! Who wouldn't love that?

I think the soft, muted colors of the cabinetry and the butcher block countertops are really pretty. (Not to mention that amazing dutch door!)

There's a lovely dining area at one end of the kitchen  with a beautiful chandy that reflects in the large mirror.

At the other end is a comfy sitting area - love that!

I found this kitchen to be sweet and inspiring. I hope you liked it too!
Have a wonderful day!!
