Cosy up your home

Hello everyone,  hope you all had a great weekend.  As it's been getting colder, I have been slowly sewing various things for the house to cosy it up, so after the fair on Saturday I spent Sunday making draft excluders, adding more rugs and choosing fabrics for curtains to add to drafty doors and windows.    I have been searching for ideas on what to do and thought I'd share my cosy home  inspiration with you all...

Layering on blankets, sheepskin, cushions, throws, rugs and adding lower lighting to create a feeling of warmth.

 Knitted: Warm and cosy, what better way to add cosiness to your home (if you can knit!)

Arranging: Around a fire, creating little cosy nooks, and adding candlelight can all help to make you home feel warmer.

 And of course a hot cup of tea helps!
