Calm and Cozy January

I hope y'all had a great Christmas and New Year. 

It's getting cold here in Georgia, and I know it's even colder where a lot of you are. Are you ready for for it? Let's hope this winter's weather will be better than last year.

Well, I'm in my usual January "mode", wearing a polar fleece top, drinking a cup of tea, and feeling very cozy. 

A few things that give me that calm and cozy feeling are...winter landscape colors.

I love using the gray, blue-green and cream tones of my old hydrangeas, old books, and vintage seascape. 

A little winter landscape painting is on the living room book case, and...

...the hallway going downstairs has a little cabin in the snow, with ski tracks. I like to imagine I'm warm and cozy in the little cabin.

OK, this isn't gray, blue or cream, but my new...monogrammed throw from Pottery Barn. Love it! 
It was a Christmas gift from my son. He knows me well. :) 

Hope y'all are staying warm and cozy at your house.

It's 4 degrees here with a wind chill in the minus zone. We've been running the fireplace a lot lately. Your mantel looks great- love the pictures and the new throw!

Yep, our wind chill in MO will be 10-20 below zero today. Usually, I'm snug in the house quilting but this week, we have several activities planned. (Not my choice!!) I'll get through it, though.

I love your winterscapes. Enjoy those cups of warm tea and that snuggly wrap. It's gorgeous!!
