If you have quilts in a linen closet or blanket chest somewhere, I say bring them out. Throw them over a table or fold at the end of the bed. Or, like me, hang it on the wall. I’ve made many quilts over the years. I like to look at them. They aren’t perfect. They wouldn’t win any prizes for design. But I put love in every stitch.
What you see in my house is not out of a magazine. This house is very much lived in. I surround myself with things that make me smile. For instance, this plate I bought off eBay for a few dollars. I have it hanging in this room where I type because I simply love to look at it.
Cozy is a mood. It is candlelight and lamps and trickling water fountains. It is old jars and buttons and things you pick up because something about it speaks to you. And you take it home and find a place for it.
Yes, I have another blog, View From The Pines, where I primarily talk about gardening and nature. But that’s not all I’m about. I also love to dabble in the house, rearranging and fiddling with doodads. So I thought I’d bring that part of me over here to Cozy Little House. This way, if you aren’t interesting in decorating, you won’t find me mixing it all up. I’ll try and take my creative urges to reuse old dish drainers and such over here! I’ll bring you “decoupage days” when I walk around with glue all over my hands. When I just feel the need to snip out old images or decorate the lampshades with my glue gun. And of course I’m bound to bring you a blossom or two!
