{cozy comforts...}



We are coping {ever so slowly} to life here without our precious house guest- Cooner! She swooped in & tempted us with life's pleasures that we became accustomed to. Did y'all know that homemade bread can be made DAILY? Or that desserts should be made {from scratch} DAILY? Or that Spa days can happen outside of the Pinehurst Spa DAILY? We now know that they can.... and we want MORE!!!!!


*****



Our house was so cozy with her here...
We got use to the wonderful smell of bread raising by the fire!!


*****



And she helped me with SO many things that I cannot begin to tell you. She does little things like: clean my earrings that I never take out & baseboards & windows & deep tissue massages to my neck- she has always known right where I need it. I guess that's what makes her mine!! And did I mention she can sew? She can- and OH how she did!!!!!!!!!


*****



We gave the guest room/office bed a little makeover. I wanted to incorporate some grey into it- so she did. She made this patchwork duvet cover that makes me want to spend the night here too!!!


*****



... and a bed skirt to boot. Are we the only 2 women that believe that you MUST have one? Please tell me the bed skirt is NOT dead?


*****



I love it so much more that anything we saw in the stores, in the magazine, or on-line!!!


*****



I know our future guests will too! THANK YOU sweet Cooner!!!

And I found this old map while we were treasure hunting. It had been pretty neglected with water damage to the matte & in a yucky gold gilded frame. But, it was on canvas & I had never seen one this big on canvas for less than $50. It was $10- So I rescued her!


*****



Cooner cleaned her, I painted the matte & frame, then Joey distressed her. She resided in the hallway for now, until Catherine comes & advises me..... I love the colors.... & she might be my favorite 10 bucks that I've ever spent!!


*****



But... as much as we hate to admit it.... We have NO pride & are counting down the days until she comes again... And makes icing & lets A-man lick the mixer whisk or takes naps with the A-man or plays Legos with the A-man or .... does anything else that the Prince asks of her!!!
