Cozy Corner & some down-time!

 A cozy corner of our living room. A great place to flip through a book or magazine. My thrift store wingback chair is slipcovered in white linen.
Unfortunately, this spot is often already occupied!

Here is another corner in our home-this time in the kitchen-it may not be cozy but it is cute!

and another corner- full of stuff-cant wait till spring! bring in some fresh colorful flowers!

I would like to thank  you all for being patient with me. I swear I am not in the witness protection program(LOL)  I have been taking a little time to myself for reflection, health issues, then my back was out for 10 days, and we lost 3 family members within 2 weeks- brutal! I am on the mend physically and still trying emotionally! I know we all have times like this and all we can do is support eachother.  I have received so many warm messages that really boost my spirits! Take great care all! ~Mel


  1. Beautiful photos! Hope you continue to heal!

  2. Your home is cozy and liveable...not just for show and I love that. My heart goes out to you -- it seems like when bad things happen, they really issues and too many deaths too close together. That can really wipe you out emotionally and physically. Sending warm thought and comfort to you at a very difficult time. xo

  3. I'm so sorry for all of your loses and then your health issues. I hope you are on the mend. It's hard to post happy thoughts when they are the farthest from your mind.

    Your little corner looks super comfy, I can see why your kitty likes to curl up there, I would, too! Did you make the slipcover? I love it. And I really want that kitchen scale! I have been looking for just the right one, hopefully I'll find it soon.

    Hope you're having a great weekend, Melanie!

  6. Oh dear, sorry to hear you've been going through such a rough time. Hopefully the spring sun will help clear your head and your heart.

  7. I'm sorry you've been going through such a rough time. I hope things are looking up soon! Thanks for saying "hello" and sharing photos of your beautiful home with us!

  8. A beautiful place to rest your heart, take care my sweet friend, trust that God heals hearts and your health. Many prayers to you and your family loss.
    I feel that your French farmhouse will greet and welcome all, sending you possative thoughts for your health, rest and pamper yourself inspiring your soul.
