Things I Love...

Seven things that I love about this time of year:

:: Lighting candles and getting a warm glow

:: Getting cosy indoors while its cold and rainy outside

:: Layering up thick pyjamas, socks, duvets , blankets and quilts and snuggling up

:: The colours outside : oranges, reds, yellows and browns

:: Drinking cups of tea and mugs of warming hot chocolate

:: Preparing for Christmas, yes! Its that time of year to get planning!

:: Yummy casseroles, soups and winter food...

What do you love about this time of year? I'd love to know as I'm sure I've forgotten some!

  6. IT is quite strange visiting you when you are getting into winter while here the heat is getting worse.

    I thin k every season has its charm I enjoy winder cold and food, as well the feeling of a wrm home...But I have to admit I enjoy so much the longer days and more natural light into the house.
    Love all your accesories Gemma!

  9. Love all those things too!...and getting all my twinkly fairy lights out. That's a lovely idea for my cracked teapot,I think I will put it on the kitchen windowsill with one of those little cyclamen in. :0)

  10. What a lovely blog! I like just everything you enumerated and can add that I love walking around outside hiding my hands in mittens and looking pretty when the cold wind gives my nose and cheeks a delicate pink colour. What I love whem I'm back home is reading blogs and enjoying the shared ideas and warm atmosphere, just like I do right here! Greetings from the Netherlands, Nova
