I love the light this time of year.

Once the leaves fall from the trees the usually dark living room has a soft glow early afternoon each day. Only for a few hours. The crooked shadows of naked trees branches along the floor. 

This shift from fall to winter is a favorite, like all of them I suppose. The excitement of the holidays. And snow. The wood stove on and off until finally it is roaring full time to keep the house toasty. We moved the couch in front of it this year. We all pile into the chairs and onto it and sit around the fire. The heat seekers of us sit right on the hearth ledge until we can't take it anymore. Luke does this and then plunges his warm little body into my lap.

"I'm a human warmer upper!" he tells me.

The pumpkins have been leaving the house, bound for the chicken coop. Making way for the Christmas decoration boxes that have come out. The white lights are going up and there is a furry of paper cutting.

If there is no snow outside, they say, they will make it themselves.

  1. Very cozy and warm. I love the last photo of the canning jar with the candle inside. Is there paper wrapped around it to give the light a warm glow?

  2. I love the “human warmer-upper” part! My little guy takes the opposite approach and tucks his chilly bare toes under my leg as he snuggles in for stories.
    Your house looks wonderfully cozy.

  3. Love that buddha head. Though it doesn’t look like winter is coming here or fall for that matter, I make the season change inside anyway. 🙂

  4. Isn’t it lovely? A gift from my husband many holidays ago. I just hung it on the wall after I took that picture. Winter doesn’t seem to want to come here either. Our forecast is above 40 for all of December last time I looked! Paper snowflakes and glitter it is I suppose……

  5. lovely! your home is so gorgeous. i love the cozy fire scene… sounds wonderful 🙂 the way our house is set up it doesn’t really work to have any furniture over by the fire. but the heat spreads really well also… so it’s not really necessary.

  6. There is nothing like the warmth a fire puts off in the house…. I really love having a wood stove again. Well worth all the bits of bark and dust that comes with bringing logs inside 🙂
