This is my favorite cozy corner. It's a corner in the master bedroom
right next to a little vintage bookshelf filled with books and behind the
chair is a floor to almost ceiling window that over looks the back
This little chair is just my size ~ not too big and not too small.
I love it's white pique slip cover and the cozy quilt on it's back that's
so handy to wrap myself up when I get a bit chilly. David likes
to keep the thermostat set on freezing lol :-) The light that comes in
behind me is perfect for reading, but when the skies darken as they
often do here close to the Gulf, there is a little vintage lamp right
next to me to brighten the page. The little footstool belonged to my
Grandfather and I painted it white and covered it in a shabby rose
patterned fabric. It's just the perfect spot for a little alone time
with a cup of tea and a good book.
See that patchwork pillow on the right? It was one of my first quilting
projects. I made it for my Mom to use in her sewing room. I purchased
the quilt at one of my favorite shops back in Idaho. Although I miss my
Idaho friends, I am so thankful for Facebook and texting because I
hear from many of them all the time. My Mom's best friend back there
calls me all the time to see how I am. She was worried about me during
all the flooding in Texas. And another friend of mine texted me at
4:00 am (3:00 am Mountain time) to see if we were okay. She couldn't
sleep and happened to see the massive storms over Texas on the weather
Isn't technology wonderful in an age where we are spread out
all over the place? Love it!
This is the book I have just started reading. It's been on my bookshelf
for quite a few years ~ sadly unread. I have only finished one chapter
and am already hooked. I am sad that I never read it before, but now
delighted that I saved it for just such a time in my life.
One of my blog readers suggested I start a list of my favorite books.
That's a great suggestion and I will do it and more. I am going to
start reviewing some of my favorites that you might enjoy too.
Although I love novels, I am a big fan of non~fiction, so expect
to see several non~fiction titles on my list.
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope y'all have a cozy little
corner in your cottage too that is just perfect for you!
BTW ~ while I am in my cozy comfy reading chair, Bentley is
curled up in another comfy chair nearby. He is always
close by and has his own favorite spots too.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
