In the winter I was experimenting with how to set up our new house. An art and writing area, a music and reading area, and a sitting area took up separate sections of the old living room. Then my classes started and I needed to be able to seat ten people comfortably and have a bigger conversation area. The living room was rearranged again. Now I am looking at having my family over for Thanksgiving dinner and entertaining for the holidays. I will need a place for the Christmas tree (I know, I know, it’s not even Halloween…) and I wanted the seating area to surround the wood stove for cozy nights with a delicious book and a cup of hot chocolate. Add to that I wanted to display my medicines for when customers come by, and have a place for all of my plants so I tapped into my inner Martha Stewart and spent the day redecorating!
I didn’t spend a penny on this redecorating day and it only took a few hours. The house feels cozy and the pumpkins and colors add an autumnal spirit. Twinkly lights are always in order for a charming home. Wishing you a beautiful season filled with warmth and family and home.
