Baby it's cold outside....

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's unseasonably cold here on the coast.  Burrrrrrrrrrrr!  Hope you are staying toasty warm.

Which brings me to this spot in my livingroom by the fire.  Cozy and warm and oh so white!    Also I'm showing off a new ruffled pillow that I just finished.

Just grab a cup of tea, plop down in this cozy chair and wrap up in the snuggly throw.  Prop your feet up and start blog hopping....pure bliss!

Dining room chairs have been painted white.  Um, now I'm wondering about the table!

Here's a look at the chalkboard I created for my booth....

and a desk that I found and painted...

That's about it for now.  I forgot to remind you to get out there and make, sew, paint, photograph, write, repupose or find something wonderful and share it with us.  So be sure that you do.

It's mighty nippy here too. I'm loving all of your white, and I think the table would look great painted!

Happy New Year!

Sissie your dining room chairs look beautiful white and I love the dark table with them. I have that same wire cloche, I just found it at Home Goods the other day.

It's been really cold here too. I'm always cold, so I've been freezing.

Love your dining room chairs.......AND your darling ruffled pillow. I see some ruffles in my future too. As soon as I thaw out and fire up the sewing machine.

Happy New Year!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Love your diningroom chairs Sissie, the ruffle pillows are so pretty on your chair...great pictures!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I was thinking the same thing about a white tablecloth...but maybe an antique crocheted version or a cotton lace, perhaps a small square on the diagonal so some of the table still shows!! Glad you are at Betsy's party too!

Shabbyfufu said...

Brrrr, 43 degrees here in Miami this morning.....and love all the white Sissie! ♡♡

Linda said...

Sissie, your whites are gorgeous. Yes stay by the fire and keep warm. We are also in the deep freeze here. 5 degrees here.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love both those ruffley pillows, Sissie! Your chairs turned out great! Love the chalkboard. I have a framed print here that I've been holding onto {for the frame} that I'm thinking chalkboard. Especially since I already have chalkboard spray paint. It's definitely on the list of projects to do!

Bente said...

The pillows are gorgeous. Must be a lot of work, doing them? I LOVE THE CHAIRS

Always so pretty! Your decorating is so uplifting...bright and cheery! I kind of like that contrast between the white chairs and the dark wood in the table since your rooms is predominately light in color. ~Hugs, Patti

Oh Sissy, everything you share with us is totally exquisite! By the way, your ears should have been burning yesterday! We were talking about your awesome and incredibly wonderful blog!

Cindy said...
