They say a picture is worth a thousand words... and I think this picture says it all!

When I think of a cozy home... a shelter from howling winds, falling snow and dropping temperatures I think of warm and wonderful ways to chase away winter's chill.

Here at StoneGable, this is my cozy spot...

Today, I'm part of the...

Make sure you visit all the creative blogs in the tour! See all the details at the bottom of the post! Make sure you enter a great giveaway!

For me, this is what I think of when I think of a cozy home...

1. A leather club chair and ottoman

2. Cuddly pillows

3. Lots of throws

4. Soup

5. Some great magazines

6. A roaring fire

The club chair and ottoman are pulled close to the fireplace. We can get some very frigid north winds and weather at StoneGable! 

This is the best spot in the house on a blustery cold  day...

Gotta  pile the chair with pillows and a couple of throws for extra comfort. We are never at a loss for lots of pillows at my house!

The blue and white pillow is really a bed pillow sham with a feather pillow in it. Who says you can't use it downstairs! We love the pair! 

I've been cooking homemade Chicken Noodle Soup since late this morning... the house smells so YUMMY!

I could eat soup all winter!

A late lunch is served on a sturdy wooden tray. 

Chilly Day Menu...

Crusty French Bread Sticks
Chocolate Macadamia Chunk Cookies
Flavored Water 

For me, nothing is better than sitting by the fire reading a pile of magazines... I must have dozens of them spread all throughout the house.

I find so much inspiration from mags and catalogs. What a great way to spend an hour or so while staying cozy!

Did you notice the white tulips?  They are a little bit of just-around-the-corner spring cheer!

Now that I am snugly and warm... well fed and read... the only thing left to do is take a little afternoon nap!

Sweet dreams!
