It’s that time of year here in Michigan when the night comes early and we make our homes warm and cozy to fend against those cool stiff breezes bringing in giant dark gray clouds to remind us that winter is coming way too soon.

I want to hang on to the best fall has to offer and warm my home with rich textures and accent it with all of autumn’s offerings.  It’s sort of like turning up the heat, even if the furnace hasn’t been turned on yet. (Though this year… it went on very early.)

    Oh my, how sweet and charming this all looks!
    I have never been to Michigan but I have heard it can be super dilly cold. But looking at the warm and inviting home and ideas you create it looks like a lovely place to be.
    What a wonderful place to come home to after a blustery day.
    Cuddle up in that cozy blanket, turn on the classical music, hot cup of tea in one hand and a good book in the other.
    Comfort to look at and feel! Beautiful.
    Blessings to you!
    P.S. Any news on replacement bikes?

    • I LOVE Michigan, Minnie… but it’s been so cold for fall. We went from the mid to high 70’s to the high 40’s. It’s like summer to winter. LOL We are getting a FREEZE tonight and hopefully 50ish tomorrow. I would love a couple weeks of 60 degree weather. But… that’s the beauty of our seasons… always changing.
      Amen to cozy blankets, classical music and a hot cup of tea. In fact… that’s next on my evening agenda!!
      No news on the bikes. 🙁
      Have a blessed day tomorrow, my friend!! xo
