This is the place where I make my nest.
In this cozy corner I can spend
hours and hours
reading or knitting~ ~or just dreaming.
My angel watching over me.
this spot is to pretty to be a cave.
It's soft and warm and cozy.
Lit by an antique lamp that I love.
The lace curtains and a bit of lace over the
lamp shade create a soft glow at night.
Also on the shade are antique lace collars,
old millinery flowers and a fleur de lay pin.
A string of twinkling lights across the window
add to the romantic mood of the room
Hidden behind the sofa is a table and the stereo
playing soft jazz or Celtic favorites.
the lace and falls on my nest warming it
for the first cup of coffee for the day.
knit as I have my coffee.
Other projects are stored in the old brown
suitcases that create a table by the sofa.
Stacked on the floor and tables.
For all of you friends with kitty's
this is a great hint for you.
My kitty loved the bullion fringe on the
sofa almost to ruin till I discovered
Double Sided Tape.
See it here on the corner of the sofa?
I stick long strips where he likes to
work on the fabric and his little paws
stick to the tape and frustrates the
heck out of him and off he goes.
I love opulence and deep rich colors and some
creams to lighten it up a bit. I like to feel like
the room is circling me with arms of warmth
and comfort and I want my guests to feel it too.
I love feminine curves everywhere.
As for what I would like to add to this room with my winnings, how about a warm throw. It looks like Home Goods has a few that I could use. When I'm sitting quietly its nice to snuggle under for warmth.
This cream colored chair would give me the extra seating I need when friends stop by.
Some pretty glass objects on my new coffee table would be so nice.
What coffee table you say. How about this ottoman and tray from Home Goods.
I have finally decided on this combo for a coffee table so I can also prop my feet
up for comfort.
I would love some pretty boxes to store my knitting odds and ends in.
A beautiful picture frame would be so pretty too.
I do believe that I can easily spend the winnings of this contest to
further feather my nest!
I want to thank Susan of Between Naps On The Porch
and Home Goods for sponsoring this contest.
Be sure to stop over at Susan's and see
everyone who is participating.
If you have not been to Home Goods
be sure to check them out.
My thanks to both of you.
I am also linking to Cindy at My Romantic Home for
Show And Tell Friday.
