Vintage and Cozy

Decorating trends come and go, and that's fine, but I'm sticking with
my own version of vintage and cozy.  Particularly since I can't get
out a lot because my cancer makes me immune compromised, it's
comforting to live in a cozy house filled with things we love.

Things I love like the color red.  Red just makes me happy, although
I will also say that I have become increasingly fond of sage green, and
the shade of green that one finds on vintage kitchen cookware.  I think
of that color as "grandma green".  It's super cozy too.

Our breakfast room has lots of touches of red with black accents.
I always gravitate towards red gingham. 

I really should fill this cookie jar with some freshly baked cookies.
I wonder how long it would take my hubby to find them there.  He
usually expects to find them in a vintage tin in the pantry, lol.

Happy Monday morning every one.  Oliver and I have a big day 
planned.  He was up with the chickens at 6:00 AM this morning,
full of kisses and cuddles.  He brightens up any morning and 
certainly mine!

Susan and Oliver


  1. I used to blog but don't know. However I have been reading your blog for a while and have been enjoying it very have been in my prayers since your blog post in December...and then I read about dear, I'm so very sorry...

    My Dad's dog was named Oliver...laying bring many years to your new baby....our Oliver lived for 19 years.

    Like you In too have cancer (2 leukemias) I understand about staying in now....

    I hope you have a blessed day.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope that your cancer is treatable and that you will be cancer free soon. May God protect you and bless you.

  2. Susan,
    I am so glad that little Oliver is giving you so much love. Glad you are staying and and safe. Get lots of cuddle and hugs with little Oliver.

  3. Love your new header! And I agree with you about just wanting to surround yourself with things you love... trendy is not my style either... unless you consider vintage or traditional trendy... lol. I hope you had a wonderful day with sweet Oliver!

  4. I love your new header. Everything is lovely.

  5. Susan, I have always loved your style! Most trends leave me cold, as if the person doesn't know what she likes or how to express her personal style. Oliver is a doll baby! There's no companion more dear than a sweet pet. Take care...I pray for you daily (hubby also) and now Oliver.

  6. Oh, he is so cute! I am so happy for you to find such a source of joy. I hope that your illness is under control and you will be completely well soon, certainly this little guy will help lift your spirits.

    1. Oliver has completely lifted my spirits! Dogs have such a calming and cheerful effect.

  7. How precious.....he looks like he would fit in a tea cup !!! So glad to see you posting again, and hope you recover quickly and stay safe.

    Love the new header, we have always had our own style.....xoxoxo

  8. Susan, the new header looks great! Love you new little sidekick. I look forwad to following along with you and Oliver.

  9. Trends come and go, but what makes us feel comfortable and cozy is what is most important. Oliver is precious. Stay safe. xo Laura

  10. Beautiful blog! Lovely photos! Have a wonderful day!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
    Email him at:
    Call or Whats-app him: +2347012841542


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
