What a perfect ending I had to this past week of dragging out Christmas decorations!
Jason was off this past week and the time just flew by! We started off the week with steam cleaning our carpets. I got the easy part....bless his heart....Jason got the hard part....he was dripping sweat! He worked so hard. I vacuumed and he followed with the steamer, but wow...it made me feel so much better about putting up the Christmas decor (which is almost done...it takes awhile when life interupts).
Okay, I'm sure you're wondering by now. What's small, black and cozy got to do with this? Well my Aunt Jo called me Friday night. She had just bought herself a new faux fireplace for her living room. Now here's where the small black and cozy comes in. She offered us a great deal on the small black electric stove that she used to have in her living room....that I've always loved...and had on my list of wants. I've wanted one for awhile now for my bedroom. So Jason and I drove over and picked it up Saturday morning.
I love the instant cozy atmosphere it gave to our bedroom. It's just the right size for this corner of the room. My aunt also threw in the popcorn grate too. You would think we got a million bucks as happy as we are with it! We've enjoyed this so much already! Even Joy...loves to sit next to it to warm up and read. And you know it really puts out more heat than you would think...it actually warms our entire room very well.
I already had the black magazine rack that I repurposed to hold wood, so now just to find something to put on the top of the heater. I have an iron tea kettle, but I love it on my old country cookstove in the kitchen too...so I can't give that up in the kitchen....so, I'm looking around the house trying to find just the right thing. Any ideas on the perfect thing to set off the top of my little black stove?
And I'm still working on details in our Christmas decor...so hopefully I can share a room at a time with you later this week. Now it's time to bring out those Christmas movies! This decorating and music has really put me in the Christmas spirit...I just don't want to leave home at night now. I love this getting-dark-at-5:15 because I feel all cozy and snug inside our home in the evenings. Now why don't some of you all share some of that snow with us southerners....that would just be perfect! :)
