Warm Woolens in the Garden Room

It's November; mostly cold and rainy, with gray days and a multitude of Brown. Most of the leaves have come down and been mulched by our trusty yard guy with his mower. The beautiful Maple trees with their oranges and reds are long gone, as are the lovely golds of the Hickories that cover our front yard. It seems like overnight we are on the road to winter. 

This is a view from the front door back on November 4.
As you can see things are looking bare.
Our subdivision is "mid-century" built,
with a lot of homes having undergone major remodels and renovations.
The trees and yards are large and well established; just beautiful in autumn.

The mums and pumpkins on the front porch are ready for recycle 
and I'm waiting for a time to take out a few Christmas topiaries 
and some Christmas color.

On the inside I've been hanging on to my warm
 late Fall plaid woolens in the Garden Room.
I love Tartan plaids, and the winter months 
are my favorite time to indulge in them.

I only have a few wool blankets in Fall colors of browns, greens, and rusts. They come out in late Fall when the temps start getting a little cooler and you aren't sweating when the sun comes through the windows in the Garden Room. I have a few wool punched one-of-a-kind pillows too. This one is of a fluffy gray sheep hanging out on the wicker settee. This is a favorite cat perch, especially nice with a cozy warm blanket.

This is an interesting tray that I found years ago. 
At some point someone used an old frame and added primitive handles
and a remnant of tapestry for the base.

My rusty brown metal lantern and turkey tureen have a spot on it.

Last year I couldn't locate my painted cornucopia but it surfaced this year,
so it's setting here on the old bench, too.

If you missed my post on the Thanksgiving Baker's Rack you can see it HERE.

A few chipmunks are hanging out here on the bottom shelf.

And you can peek inside the Holiday Cupboard for Thanksgiving HERE.

I love this short window of time for these cozy comfy Fall hued blankets.
I've found most of these at Vintage Markets or Fleas.
I have a lot more that I use for Christmas,
that are coming up next week.

You can check out my Pinterest page;
 Plaid, Tartan, and Tweed for a lot more cozy 
Tartan blankets and clothing.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.
There are a still a few pumpkins around 
but Christmas decor is creeping in.
Hope you're having a wonderful cozy Fall weekend.

Hope to see you Monday evening!

  1. It looks so nice Debra. Nice to see someone in blogland with Thanksgiving still up and going lol! Have a good week leading up to Thanksgiving. xoxo Kris

  2. Beautiful! You are season appropriate while so many of us have jumped on the Christmas train. But, believe it or not, I saw forsythia and iris blooming in the neighborhood yesterday! Now how weird is that?

  3. One of my favorite spaces in all of blogland dresses up with one of my favorite patterns, it's all so pretty, Debra. I just want to snugggle up in here with a big cup of coffee and hang out. Love the way you're kicking off a season of Thanksgiving. Big hugs, CoCo

  4. Your garden room looks very inviting! I love your vintage blankets... I can feel that Pendleton wool right now.
