All Snuggled Up With A Good Book....

I am really enjoying my new book.

I find myself drawn to the bedroom earlier and earlier what with these cold nights.
Maybe it is the grey skies, I never embarked on the grey fashion that was once very popular, apologies to you lovers of grey, but I find it such a dreary colour.
Yes I know we have much to do to decorate my ooops our bedroom, but we are getting there, and so it is with a smile when I snuggle up in my cheery bed to read a book.

Once Darling husband has greeted us with lovely kisses and cuddles, I make my way here.

I so enjoy my little books all stacked up and love being taken to another pretty world when I read them, I am sure my dreams are happier when I have read one of my charming books.

I am loving my pretty and sweet little £2.49 treasure, it shall look adorable on Big Sister's bed when she is in her new attic bedroom.

And what fun we shall have playing her Little Grey Rabbit Card Games in her new den.

Thank you for the Tags and Awards, I shall thank you properly.
And thank you Blogging friends for taking the time to say hello, if you are anything like me wonder where the time goes. Too busy making pretty cushions from dusters :)

Righteo a book is calling.

  16. Mary, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my sewing post. Your bed looks so cosy - I love a good snuggle up with a good book as well, and I've been wanting to get the thrifting book. I love the eiderdown on your bed - which I could find one which was reasonably priced! x

    I have used my CK dusters, sadly I cannot make them into cushion covers now.
    Have lovely weekend,
    Carol xxx
