Random Thoughts on a Rainy Day!

Today has been one of those dark, pouring down rain all day, kinda' days!  The kind of day where you slow down a bit and, maybe, take some time to reflect on your surroundings.  I did a bit of that today.

I don't know if you have favorite objects or spots in a room, but I do.  A place that when you look at it, it just make you feel good, in a warm fuzzy, satisfying sort of a way.  I, also, have plenty of place that are "off", just not warm, fuzzy or very satisfying!

But, I want to address a couple places that I like to look at in our living room.

They may not resonate with everyone, but for me, it's this IKEA chair with the quilt throw over it and the baking soda can and bird nest accessories on the table.....just make me smile. Normally, I don't even like throws over chairs but this was a happy accident.

or dim,

it just feels cozy and comfortable to me.

My favorite place to sit is on the sofa, the photo above is on one end of the sofa and on the other end is another table with this sitting on it..............

two black metal document boxes but, it's what is on the other side of the boxes, that I love looking at....it is the cover of a book about the Civil War with lavender blooms sprouting above from a pot sitting on the other side of the book.

It's the colors that I love.

This was another happy accident, that I discovered one day, when I just looked over my shoulder and noticed the book jacket colors with the "not so real" lavender on the other side complimented each other. It was another feel good moment for me. 

I love the fact that we are all have such different taste. What is one person's pleasure might be difficult for another person to appreciate but isn't it fun!

I try to surround myself with the things I love which are usually, pretty simple and worn objects and furniture.....texture and color are what make my world spin!

I loved this post, because it's obvious that you are happy in your home! That throw looks like it belongs on that chair. So cozy looking. It's been snowing here all day, but it's so windy that it's not sticking to the ground. A good day to stay inside, turn on the Christmas lights and blog away!
Happy REDnesday!

Isn't it wonderful to have little things around that make you smile? I do like the throw you have on the chair. The pillow adds more whimsy. Very nice and inviting!
