SHALL WE RETIRE TO THE LOUNGE?

I love the warmth of all the Autumn colours but my main colour throughout the cottage is blue so have to be careful which shades of Fall I use. I tend to favour oranges and browns rather than red so we don't have too much colour clashing going on!

A cozy corner! A much cherished cross-stitch picture of all the seasons made by my dear friend Sue. The little Fenton glass basket holds dried rosehips and to add a little  Halloween to the mix, tiny witches brooms! The tiny Fortnum & Mason basket contained Halloween choccies (long gone!). I adore the figurine of the Grandmother and Grandchild called 'The Quilt', reminds me of Soraya and me(or I)!
 My dresser which I promise will one day have a paint treatment! Our lounge is very long(33ft) so I tend to keep this end the cozy end. I can snuggle up on the huge squidgy chair and read(or fall asleep!).
 Danish Pixie children, this one is Winter.
And this one is Autumn! Aren't they adorable? Loving the clogs!



                                                                THE FIREPLACE


One of our three large windows. As I have mentioned before, our cottage was formerly the village stores so I have these three huge windows to play with!
     The wooden dough bowl was bought at a local antiques fair and restored for me by my lovely brother!                                                  

Next week I will be doing the Halloween decorations, yippee! Bring on the witches, wizards and pumpkins!
