  1. I love all the layering and the coziness of your home. I’ve been following you for years and have gotten a lot of decorating ideas from you. I love your style! We’ve been iced in several days in Alabama so I’m taying indoors catching, relaxing and catching up on what I’ve missed on your blog

    You have a lovely home and I admire your eye for what goes together to create your vignettes.
    Having said that the clutter would drive me nuts! I tend to go towards minimalism and I enjoy cleaning and dusting, weird I know.
    Have a good weekend, stay warmđź’—

  3. I love how you decorate and change things, too. You sweet little home has personality! You have a great knack for creating lovely vignettes.

  4. For some reason, it struck my funny bone to think of your milk glass being displayed with your cow. Milk cow… milk glass… cows make milk… get it? lol, I don’t know why I find that so funny. It seems a perfect pairing in my silly brain. It makes me smile. So does Eileen’s description of her living room lights and cozy candles. I can totally picture that, and I love her choice of words… the warmth of all the lights is an absolute gift to herself. I love that!

  5. Everything looks sooooo nice ! I love the milk glass , I think I’d like to collecting some . I live in an older condo about 50 years old . All my rooms are small, so I don’t rearrange the furniture much. Either a window or heat registers seem to be in the way . So I like to switch up what’s on the flat surfaces . I love the stacking idea , I think I’ll try that .

    You have such a style of decorating. I always enjoy your new posts about what you have done to this room or that room. This is such a cozy room for you and Ivy.

  7. I love that red geranium painting with all your red items. I would love that look on my mantle for Valentine’s Day. Thanks for the inspiration. I have a read and white early 20th century quilt topper that I am going to use for a tablecloth. Here in Michigan, the snow has arrived. So I am going to decorate with red and white and ignore it.

  8. I loved all your ideas. I got a kick out of your comment “the cow doesn’t mind” about the milk glass collection! The little chickadee print is adorable, too.

    I have a hen on the nest just like yours. I have had it for at least 40 years.

  10. What a wonderful post and I plan on having fun trying some of your advice. Wintertime is a perfect time to redecorate! Thank you so much for your continued posts. I can’t seem to start the day until I have read the current one!

  11. We should decorate our homes to please ourselves, not cater to “trends” or what other people think is “in” or “not in” or whatever. I don’t listen to “influencers” who dictate “do this, do that.” It’s my home, I’ll do whatever I want in it, including loading my bookcases and shelves with books, framed photos and souvenirs. We’re in a snow storm at present, it started about 4 a.m. on top of 2-3 days previous slush and snow, and may not move out of here until mid-afternoon tomorrow. It’s a mess outside, 12 to 15″ predicted, and then an “Arctic blast” will hit us on Sunday for several days. Sigh.

  12. Because you decorate with what you love is probably why most of us are drawn to your blog. Winter really has its own kind of beauty and gives us an opportunity to make our homes extra cozy.

  13. Brenda, how cute. I love your milk glass collection. Those pieces are so easy to incorporate into decor, I have a few, they hold makeup brushes, tv remotes, so many uses..My Mom had a huge collection, I guess it’s time to go shopping at her home…….

  14. I agree completely. I am always arranging, re-arranging. My eyes enjoying resting on a new view. I have left up up strings of clear little light that go all around the livingroom, over the curtains and across my fireplace mantle and across the bookcases….as well as my battery operated candles, my one big indulgence. The warmth of all the lights is an absolute gift to myself.
