I got to the mowing late today. I finished up as the sun was setting.
You can see the reflection of a tree that's changing color - the one on the left
It's this same tree behind Sandi. She is eating her evening hay.
The chickens go out for a bit in the early evening.
As the evening comes on I like to light candles and make our cottage cozy and inviting.
There is a string of lights up on top of the kitchen cupboards
That's where this plate lives
But this one is on the piano
The girls like to color coordinate the books to the season, and decor. You can see the lights here and some grapevine garland and autumn leaves. They give a beautiful glow at night, and help to make our home welcoming even if it is only for us.
Do you make your home cozy just for your own pleasure? I've always decorated for myself first and have found that others feel welcome as well.
