This is what happens when one season melts into another. Today we are having snow which is unusual for us in November.
While we were still in the throws of autumn, the winter has appeared and the Snow Queen has placed her white cloak over our garden.
To me, autumn and winter are times to make a home cozy and with our new furniture, I find myself moving things around trying to find the best way to use things now.
And with this, last week I moved one of my sideboards out of the room as it was just too full. I then moved the sideboard I normally use behind the couch to the wall near our woodstove.
A winter roses tapestry tablerunner, chocolate colored lampshades and a floral arrangement with red carnations, branches and berries give a cozy and warm glow to the living room.
A piece of my handmade bobbin lace works well with one of the miniature portraits in my collection.
A magnifying glass for examining things just that little bit closer.
For years, I have had this sideboard set up to look like a writing desk. I have always enjoyed the look of it like this so was a little weary to change it. Now I am pleased with how this corner of my living room has turned out so I am glad I did change it.
Still not wanting to rush the season, regardless of the snow, our autumn tree is in a new corner of the dining area of the room. It lights up a very dark spot and makes it nice to sit there for our dinners. I am not going to start any holiday decorating until December has come but this creates a festive mood for the current season.
