Comfy spaces.

Autumn is my favorite season and when I began decorating my front room, I envisioned a comfy space where I could curl up with a book and a cat and a cup of tea as the days got darker earlier.  Unfortunately, life is busy and I don’t get to relax as much as I would like to and my special little nook is used more often by the cats than by me.

Although we are still in the middle of summer, last evening was cool and rainy and it felt like autumn to me, so I decided to settle into my second favorite spot in the house (the first being the kitchen).  I lit some incense, plugged in the Christmas lights, and put my feet up.  Ox joined me for a little while too.  It was splendid!

Here’s a daytime shot from a couple of years ago, complete with our beloved kitty Aleister, who passed away in February.

Here’s a challenge for you, dear readers!  Would you snap a photo of your favorite comfy space in your dwelling and share it on your blog?  I am nosy and I would love to see where you relax!

Also, now that I am using Bloglovin’ to follow some of you, do you have any suggestions of blogs I should follow? My interests are cooking, cats, vegetarianisn/veganism, rummage sales, thrift shops, second hand shopping, music, entertaining, Halloween, making jewelery and collages, home decor, nature, reading, taking photos, walking, vodka with lime, and laughing.  Oh!  I also like you, my blog readers!

Have a great day everyone!  I will snap a photo of today’s outfit and put it up later on tonight or tomorrow.  Keep cooking!

  1. What a gorgeous room!
    I’m with Christine, I’d have to clean up first but I promise to and post soon! Aleister was a beautiful cat, it’s heart breaking to lose one.
    Lots of the blogs in my sidebar are fellow like-minded girls, check out Krista at Peetee’s Palace and Curtise at The Secondhand Years, they are a couple of my real-life friends! xxx

  4. Thank you, Sarah! I have the matching table lamps too! They were a gift from my dad because when he saw what color we painted the walls, he thought we should have ’em.
