A Cozy Table

Cozy is the way to create a private dinner for two in November. 

A quilt by the fire with some golden accents creates a warm setting.  A fire is one of my favorite accessories for the home in fall and winter.



When you have a table sitting by the fire, the fire and the mantle top become an extended part of the centerpiece.

Here is wishing you a warm and cozy November.

 I will join Joni at Red Couch Recipes for the Thanksgiving Challenge.  I will put at the end of every post till Thanksgiving what I am thankful for.  I am thankful for all of you blogging friends who come to comment or read my blog.  I started this blog to explore the creativity that I had ignored to serve my family for the last twenty years.  It is a wonderful thing to have an outlet for who you really are, when your putting  it aside each day to be who everybody needs you to be.  I appreciate all the comments and views.  I have been very in awe and inspired by you blogging friends who have such creativity and talent that it challenges me to try things I haven't tried in 20 years.  Thanks a lot for that!  
 Stay true to who you are even if it is in your dreams or just through blogging.

Oh, so adorable! I love pictures like this.

Love the salad plates, everything is so warm and welcoming. The gold tones make it so rich and wonderful. I love the fireplace too. I had to build a fire in the pizza oven tonight just for ambiance since it turned cold yesterday.

Sherry, that picture of you is so absolutely adorable! I love it. I am smiling about your salad plates. I have them too and was waiting to use them for fall and I had forgotten all about them! I am so glad to see them here to remind me. They look absolutely lovely with the cream and gold accents. Everything looks just lovely.

Marlis said...

Great picture! I love your table. The poire and pomme plates are so beautiful. I too love gold in the cooler weather. Maybe it's because the warm coloring makes us feel warmer. Beautiful fire place too.
