my cosy haven of a home ...

The nights are drawing in and what better time to make your home a cosy haven, perfect for chilling out and relaxing. You really don't need to spend a lot, accessories go a long way to transforming a room. Above, you can see my lovely salt lamp which J discovered for me in Lidl, I have had it a few years now and it has started to split down the middle, hardly surprising as formed from a natural substance. I will be upset when it has to go, but hopefully we will discover another one to replace it.



You can't tell by this picture, but these battery operated blossoms from M&S, a present from my mother-in-law, give off a blue twinkly glow in the dark, so pretty.



And last but not least, these lovely twig lights, bought from Tchibo a few weeks back, for under £10, run off the mains, and they make the corner by the fireplace give off a nice warm glow.

Feeling toasty yet?

Hi Louise,
Love the items you've posted about, especially the twig lights!

Thank you for visiting me and for your sweet comments about my roasting pan and my bathroom decorating...I really appreciate it!

Love, Kim

Cosy and warm as toast. Is there a log fire and a sheep pile rug in front of it? :-)

I love those twigs , they're so pretty. I must say I\ve never heard of a salt lamp and am now intrigued! I've been through your posts and found the one with the photo of Lancing beach - it's great. I think I know the area too.

I love these dark evenings for being so warm and cosy snuggled in front of the fire. Your twigs are lovely

aww I love the twig lights!! so Christmassy!

Thankyou for your messages on my blog, you are very kind, although there are many more much more talented bakers than me! If I can do it anyone can, I go for easy every time. x

Hi Louise, what a sweet poem you left me, no cup of tea yet though, we've run out of tea bags and Mr. Bloom won't go out in the rain to get any! Love your spotty things, I have a little blue spotty eggcup similar to yours but that's about it. I'd love to find some red spotty stuff. Have a good weekend.

Lovely lighting! The twig lights are very pretty. Would be interested in seeing the blossom lights lit up.
