Cozy Up With Some Cocoa


I am starting to decorate my front porch for Christmas.  I have 
gathered up a few things to use, but baby, it's cold out here.
So ...  I think it's time for a bit of hot cocoa to take off the chill.



Notice how I misspelled chocolate.  Every time I write the word chocolate,
I leave off the "e" so it comes out "chocolat".  But it's not my fault ~
it's genetic.  My great grandmother was born in France!  



Some people have dyslexia.  I have a genetic affliction that 
causes me to revert to the French spelling. Silly girl!




I have warmed up enough to take off my jacket and gloves
and am about to get to work.  As you may have guessed, I am 
going for a lodge look on the porch.  I'll be showing you more later.

Until then I am joining ~


Tell everyone to have a bonne nuit Bentley!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. The porch is turning out gorgeous! But with yummy looking hot "chocolat" like that,
    I think lots of breaks are in order! Can't wait to see.
    Hugs to you and Bentley!

  3. Oh Susan I love the French way of spelling chocolat! I decorated my porch the other day and it was so warm that I had to change to a short sleeve shirt. Crazy! I usually do a lodge look out there but this year decided to bring it into the entry. Have gone with a garden/bird theme for a change. Can't wait to see when you are all finished! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
    Hugs,
    Jann
    p.s. Hug Bentley for me!

  4. The hot "chocolat" looks outstanding. It will warm the hands, the tummy, and the soul on a chilly day. Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

  5. I spelled my daughters name with the French spelling "Madeleine" No one knows how to spell it or pronounce it. They call her Madeline. My mother's side of the family is French. What a cozy scene. You have such a way of cozying up a scene. How is the cabin going?

  6. It is definitely not hot cocoa weather here, but I still enjoy a cup. It turned a little cooler, but far from winter. Mowed the yard today.

  10. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! Looking good! We have had some cold nights in the 20's and it's suppose to be in the high 60's this weekend! Crazy Oklahoma weather!

    Your cocoa looks fantastic too.

    Stay warm.

  14. This makes me wish to decorate our porch too - but that may be just one thing too many! I haven't put a single decoration out yet.

  15. Love all your holiday porch decorating, adore the pop of the red. And I must go get some hot chocolate now, one of my absolute favorite things. It's a rainy day in L.A. today, with more forecast. Better stock up!

    Happy VTT and warm and cozy days to you and Bentley!

  17. Gorgeous photos Susan. I just found your blog and am now following on networked blogs.
    Here in Australia it is summer and very hot and humid, but I'll still be drinking hot cocoa for Christmas :)
    I'd love it if you'd consider Sharing at Shabbilicious Friday - http://shabbyartboutique.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/shabbilicious-friday-link-party_30.html
