"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." ~~ Edith Sitwell

  All Done!! The house is clean, comfy, cozy and all decorated for Winter. This round of decorating is, actually, enjoyable.....not NEARLY as huge a job as decorating for Halloween and Christmas!! It only took about 4 hours....not including the cleaning!! I feel like I am all ready for Nesting Season....all I need now is a good book and a quilt to cuddle under...and I am set!!! We have been getting all ready for Nesting Season at the shop, too. New candles, new cookbooks, new nightlights, new cookie cutters, new gourmet foods.....can you see where my head is, right now???? The candles make the house (that is shut up tight against the Winter winds...) smell good, the cookbooks, gourmet foods and cookie cutters are because it's cooking time (or as a friend of mine called it "weight gaining season"....) the nightlights are because it gets dark so early.....you get the idea!!! I have a lots more new and wonderful merchandise on it's way, too.....just because you make your home all cozy doesn't mean you can't leave it, once in awhile, for a little retail therapy.....making your house a home is an ongoing project, after all, and NEW things bring great joy!!!!! Happy Monday everyone!!! :):):)
