Cozy Corner For Autumn

Baskets
Good Morning! I did a little rearranging this past weekend. In addition to the storage drawers, I got this hanging basket stand at the same yard sale for $5.00.

Baskets
The blankets and pillows didn't match my bedroom colors, so I took them out and gave the baskets a good cleaning.

Chair
Next, I moved my patio chair into the corner.

Stool
Along with a little foot stool.

Baskets
Now the baskets hold a burgundy throw and past Autumn issues of my favorite magazines.

Daisy
Uh-oh...it looks like Daisy likes my new reading corner, too.

Daisy
I don't think she plans on sharing! Thank you for taking a look and I hope you have a great day. It's the start of 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade for us!

I just wanted you to know I just love your blog!! In fact, I mentioned it in my latest post on my blog! LOL

I had to run out to Michaels and get some of those pumpkin beads like you got! They are adorable!! I also saw the acorn ones and will probably have to get a bag of those eventually.

Your yard sale finds are fantastic! Wish I could find great things like that here. Thanks for all the wonderful pictures.

God bless you ~ Julie

Cant blame a pup can ya!! I cleaned off my back porch yesterday..washed my chairs, table, scrubbed the floor. It looks really good...nice place for Gandalf and all kittys to lay on and around. URGH!!!! Oh btw...I bought a copy of The Secret Garden from the Good Will for .39 cents and started reading it yesterday. I love this book!!! Boy I have been deprived!

Hi. I love your reading corner and baskets for storage!

Do you need something from Alaska or Vancouver for the kids? It's been long enough now, I can't remember what goes where in the grades so far as geography goes...although I think local geo/hist is in 2nd, isn't it?

Cathy said...

Hi Kelli,
The reading corner looks cozy and comfortable. You did a great job!

suzeeez said...

Hi Kelli ,
I think you did a greAt job with your cozy little corner . It looks like something I would have done .
It also reminds me of the little pink stuffed chair I got at an estate sale and put in the corner in my kitchen ...... then ..... my dog Java took it over . So I guess I got him a dog bed for 5.00 ! Pay a visit to my blog and look for the picture of Java in my pink chair when you have a chance . Sue

Hi, Kelli, I 'found' you through Monique's blog...I have really enjoyed my visits here and LOVE your pictures, recipes and well written, sweet words.
I have a question tho.....about your carpet.....I love that and have been thinking about Berber when we replace ours..how do you like it and do you find the light color is good or bad??? Thanks for any responses.....
Keep up the great job with the blog. I am going to add you to my reads, if you don't mind....

I love the pictures of Daisy! She looks so comfortable. All she needs is a good book to read! :) My cat, Bailey, would always know where I was about to sit and would jump there just about before I could sit down!! I suppose it's nice to have a reading partner! :)

Cute site!
