A Snow Day in The South

Here in North Carolina a snow day is a nice event. It doesn’t happen that often and when it does a flurry of excitement abounds. Of course not all people get excited over it but they are grumps! I for one love the snow. I guess it is just like with most things too much of something can be just too much. I don’t take it for granted because it is so rare and my whole philosophy is if it is going to be cold and miserable nature might as well give me something pretty to look at. All the things you have probably heard about the southerners and snow are probably true. No we can’t drive in it and I for one don’t care to! I just wanted to share a little of my snow joy with you with a few pictures my husband and I have taken around our little town in rural ,eastern North Carolina of the two snow days we have had so far this winter.

Spotlight on Knits

One of my favorite trends in home decor is knits. They really soften up a space and provide warmth during the colder seasons and bring in that coziness that adds that special touch to any room. I prefer to use the softer, more neutral colors this time of year and as it gets warmer outside add those brights in as the seasons change. Pillows, throws and bedding are just one way to incorporate knits in to your home decor. With their popularity you can now find them in home accessories and furniture as well. I have gathered some beauties from Pinterest for you to see how they can bring a special kind of feeling in to your spaces. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I am currently wrapped up in a soft cable knitted throw I got from Target last year and oh my is it soft and warm!

As you can see knits will work with any type of decor and are a beautiful addition to any room. One of my favorite ideas was using a beautiful knitted throw as a tablecloth. These beautiful knits really say welcome, come in and stay awhile and relax. Hopefully you have been inspired to bring some of these beauties in to your home.
