Hello Friends! Happy Wednesday!
It’s a chilly, rainy day here in SF, and I’m drinking tea and Baby and I are staying cozy in our cozy sitting spot. I’m a firm believer that every home should have one. Everybody should have one. A favorite place to sit and ponder, read, de-stress, snuggle up into. Everyone needs a cozy sitting spot, preferably one that is both comfortable and lovely to look at, or if not exactly lovely, then at least makes us happy to see.
Essential ingredients for a cozy sitting spot are: 1) a comfy chair, 2) nice light for reading, 3) some pretty artwork, textiles, or artifacts, and 4) a cuppa tea and 5) a soft blanket never hurt.
My current favorite cozy sitting spot in my home is in the nursery. It’s where Baby and I sit and rock, nurse, cuddle, and read books. Have a look.
Here I have one of a pair of super-comfy petite swivel-rocking-chairs that I own. The nearby table usually has everything I might need at the ready: a book, a toy, a burp cloth, a q-tip (the only time I ever think to clean Baby’s ears is when she’s nursing), a kleenex, etc. The window and lantern provide nice light. And my grandmother’s needlepoint ottoman gives me a place to prop up my feet. The colorful and cheerful nursery has become our favorite room in the house.
