I Hear It's Almost Winter

Wintertime is right around the corner. It (FINALLY) feels cold in Houston.  Today I wore a thick sweater and still got the chills- that doesn't happen often down here. With the cooler months comes a few things I just love.

Sipping hot tea and primping for holiday soirees...

Faux furs, darkly-rimmed eyelids and tossled hair...

All-black ensembles with more fur...

Staying in bed too long on weekend mornings while lazily reading...

And beautiful Christmas tablescapes, of course...

Finally, another reason I love the winter months is because of the eclectic decor I seem to accumulate.  I have less of a tendency to keep my tabletops and counters tidy- with Christmas cards, holiday party invitations, small trinkets,wreaths, etc- my decor takes on an even more collected look, which I love.  


As I type this I'm sitting with a cup of hot chocolate wrapped up in a scarf.  Even though the sun's going down at 5 pm these days, I'm not complaining about it just yet. :)  I hope you're embracing the changing season along with me!

  8. I'm not ready! I think it's going to be a cold one up here. But I do love the fall. Cold Houston sounds lovely though!

  9. This post made me feel all warm and cozy. I just love a cup of something hot late afternoon/early evening. I'm also loving that it's finally getting a little cooler here on the west coast. I'm pretty sure we all but missed Fall this year. The leaves on our Maple are still mostly green!

  10. I must say, as a girl from Georgia who lives in Chicago, I hate hate hate winter weather. But this post made me actually want to embrace it :) any excuse to stay in bed under the warm covers in good for me. I do getting out of the shower on a daily basis though because I know the second the water goes off the next 5 minutes will be a chilly hell!
