Cosy ...

Hello ...

It's cold outside ... windy and bleak 
I got to choose the prompt today for 



And what better than Cosy...


This time of year with fairy lights twinkling and candles glowing ... it makes for such a cosy atmosphere ... 
The above photo is my mantle piece ... in the evening it looks so warm -
 It's no secret that I love candles and twinkling lights... even on a summer's evening I love the glow and the cosy feeling I get from them...

I love simple glass jars with tea lights in 
Here are a few that light up my home ... ones I didn't make because these were so inexpensive ... both of them were under £2 each


I love this French one ... happily nesting amongst my book folded houses


I took my photos in daylight so you can imagine how cosy these look in the evening

Here's a Christmas one


You may have noticed the one on my mantle ... this is it during the day


I printed the photo of Ross & Sophia onto vellum and wrapped it around the candle ... come evening 


They look like they are walking into a cosy sunset ...

This is my kind of cosy on a cold winter's day ... what's yours?

We'd love you to link up with us at Our Beautiful World ...

Enjoy your Sunday and stay Cosy
