There are as many bedrooms as there are personalities on the planet! I think it's because it is where we place our most personal pieces of life's choices. Material, emotion and our innermost needs are laid out where we are most comfortable with ourselves. Thus, reflected in our bedroom decor is our need to feel cohesive within. Whether we need a lot of space surrounding us with minimalist features or the deep and soft cosiness of  layers upon layers of feathers and fluff. What we use in our life to cope with the obtrusive world is here in our bedrooms. While I find a feature that I like in each bedroom, above,  I am most drawn to the bed with Geraniums! It seems to complete my sense of garden, clear color and softness. To let you in on a little piece of my inner personality, I make my bed every morning because I like how it looks and I leave my bedroom and start my day with a twinkle of contentment in my thoughts

Sunny In The Holler

Hello out there!
 Today is a sunny and bright, three degrees below zero, day in Hoot's Holler!

With all the sunshine coming through the windows the colors just come alive. We know that nothing pleases Miss Anchor Cottage more than colors.

A bird and a Primrose on my kitchen windowsill. 

A sunny perch for reading.

Finally got my nose out of my taxes and looked up to see all my favorite colors looking down at me!

Amazing what a little sunshine can do to raise your spirits!

Favorite Winter Sport

Sitting in front of my sewing machine and looking out over my Queendom, while sewing, is my winter sport!

The pillows are all lined up waiting for me to take them into the shop! "Take me, no take me I don't want to go I like it here!" "Outta here, pillows, before I become attached and you head downstairs and on my own couch!"

Cabin fever time of year!

Not a load of snow but below 20 degrees and cloudy is the average day. I need to make brighter pillows!
 Yellow sounds good!
