~Fluffy Warmth~

Hello Guys, During the winter months I love to layer, be it on my walls tables or furniture...It just adds that warm fluffy feel to me...
This is a small French shelf I have above my sofa that I just added a picture in front of the mirror...It just fluffed it right up...
Of course adding a Fat Fluffy Cherub gives it that fluffy and warm feeling..ha ha!!
I also fluffed up my little table in my entry...
Made me a sweet little fluffy birds nest tassel
And added a warmer little shade for winter...
Oh!! but the best thing I have ever gotten to add warmth and fluff for those snow winter days here on my mountain is this Beautiful fluffy faux fur throw...
My sweet Sis...Chari from "Happy to Design" send me this fluffy love for Christmas...Oh does she know me or what...Thank you sweet Sis I love it and you,
and use it every night while watching TV...
And of course having the fire going also helps me feel fluffy and warm..
Hope all of you are keeping warm and fluffy...I'm am joining Marty  at a "Stroll thru life" and Sweet Courtney at " French country Cottage "...Thanks Ladies for a fun day..
Thanks for all the comments on my little tea cup lights...If you make one let me see it..It's so easy..and for those that didn't see the how to click here...

Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and Smiles Gloria

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hi, Gloria! I loved seeing you fluffing your nest, and I want to crawl under that fluffy throw you have there. SO pretty! And I loved the pretty tassel you made. If it goes missing, you won't have to look further than a magpie's nest. LOL!

That cute little fat cherub hiding his eyes got me so tickeld. And is that your mother in that photo? Very pretty.

Stay warm, my friend. I've had a relapse, and I just want to cry. But instead, I am up and sitting at my computer.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi ya cutie, I'm sorry you're sick. We're doing pretty good right now, it took me almost 6 months to get over the bronchial stuff I had, finally it's gone. yeah!
It is so cloudy and gloomy here, I've been working on getting new product ordered for the last couple of days, pretty tired of looking. lol Some new things will be rolling in the first of the week. I'm looking forward to that. Yes, my love I take debit..lol. how is that darling baby boy? I know he is a bundle of joy and love. The 2 B's are doing ok, I head to the city in a while to get the youngest one for the w/k. He'll put some much needed laughter in the house. I sure hope the snow misses you, we're finally above freezing for the first time in a while, enjoy that spring like weather.. love ya girl. hugs ~lynne~

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Hi Gloria! Stopping back by to say thank you so much for sharing at my party this week! I have your button on my sidebar so I popped on over- but the link in the party was going to another blog and to somebody's profile that was called Happy To Be~ Insanity!!! Do you want to link up again? I can remove the other one over at the linky site- Kim from Savvy Southern Style said the linky was having issues this week! LOL!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Mary Ellen said...

What a cozy setting Gloria!! I think I would be lounging all day long with that throw Chari sent you and not get a thing done except for some reading maybe!!

See you are going Chari way in the summer- if you drive and are any where near us in Walsenburg- give a holler-Would love to see you in person!!!

I get to spend some time with Marty and Ceekay next weekend as we will be in Phoenix for a quick trip to see Bill's folks- that will be fun!

Have a great weekend

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Hi Miss Gloria~ I went to fix the link- but it doesn't let me change the address or anything- just delete. So I deleted it :( since it was linking to some wrong site. I don't know what is going on with the linky tool this weekend but I have seen several comments and chatter about it at other parties too. Anyway, We will have to chat about meeting in Sac sometime. I have not been to the antique faire there but have heard about it- maybe we can have a Northern California bloggers get together day sometime and meet there! Anyway, if you feel like linking up again- feel free or you can just link this same one up again sometime- next week or whenever. Thanks for always being such a sweet friend! :) Hugs, Courtney

Honey at 2805 said...

Oh! Everything looks so comfy and cozy at your place. The white fluffy throw looks wonderful to curl up under. (and I love your "sis").

On another note, I saw your comment on another blog and want you to know that I would be happy to go to Sac Antique Faire with you, if only I lived in Northern Calif.

Gypsy Heart said...

Oh my word, that throw is divine!! I love your little cherub too. Everything looks warm and inviting my friend. Wish we were closer so I could come over and join you in front of that fire.

Hope your doing ok in this weather. It's been so bitterly cold here I can hardly stand it. I can't remember the last day the sun was shining ~ :-)

I posted a giveaway today...please stop by when you can.

Much love my friend,
Pat
