Snow Day Relaxation

Well hello girlies! It is a bit early in the day for me to be posting, but we got sent home from work around noon today because there's another bad snow storm going on. So here I sit, wrapped in a snuggly blanket, sipping tea, watching the snow fall and browsing one of my favorite decor books.

At Home with White by Atlanta Bartlett. Shhh...don't tell anyone I told you but there's a giveaway coming to this little blog in the near future and you could win your very own copy!

I told myself I had to at least do one productive thing during my time off, so I did manage to clean my room up a bit (ha...sounds like I'm 12...but I live with my parents so what's the difference : )

I love the way the pink tulips look against the stark snow outside.

I added a bit of lace to my favorite jars to make a pretty votive holder.

My mom's banana bundt bread is delicious, especially with hot Irish Breakfast tea.

My mom and I have just been enjoying a quiet afternoon chatting and relaxing. A pot of yummy chili is on the stove, and I think a girly movie while snuggled on the couch is in order for later. Mmmm nothing like a good snow day cozy inside.

I did promise you I'd introduce you to a new friend today, and don't worry I still will! Snow days mean lots of time for blogging : ) Check back soon!

    Ooh that is the perfect setting for a winters day. I can smell the chilli, that candle is lovely. The flowers are perfect, I wish I was there. Great that you get quality mum time. I'm envious. And to have "Living With White", I covet that. You're making me look forward to winter. A beautiful post Courtney.

  3. Looks SO cozy!! I wish it would snow here. It hasn't in a while and I'm bummed because we were supposed to have a harsh winter.
    I can't believe I don't have that book yet!! ;-)

  4. Ah! You're so creative! What an awesome way to spend a snow day!

  5. Oh, I love days like this....what a pretty post

  6. This is a really awesome post! I would like to invite you to link it up to my link party, Masterpiece Monday, at my blog, Boogieboard Cottage. The link will be up all week. I hope you can join in the fun! Mary :O)

  7. Mmmm! That looks like an absolutely lovely way to spend an afternoon! I wish my Mom lived here so I could spend a snowy afternoon with her, sipping tea and chatting!
    That book looks like it is full of eye candy!

  8. That is such a pretty and cozy scene! I've been a bit jealous hearing about everyone's snow days while I sit here in the sun. It's hard to feel cozy when it's in the 70's outside!

  9. I really love the images in this post!! New follower.
