Being Home After Dinner

I love the cozy time of day after dinner.  I think of how many of us are settling in for the evening.  The kitchen is cleared up and clean.  We'll set up the coffee for tomorrow morning.
 
 
Lamplight is warm and inviting, and makes the colors around it warm and subdued.


The spindles on the staircase really pop tonight.  The wood and runner are comforting, welcoming colors.


More lamplight in the bedroom exemplifies the wonderful feeling of Being Home.

Day 30 of 31.  Simple Pleasures, one day to go!

Makes me want to grab abook and snuggle in. Hope you are safe from the storm.

You have done so well with this challenge... I think that you could go for another month! I would never have thought about the evening once the kitchen is clean and tidy for the morning to come, though it certainly is one of my little pleasures.

Hi Carol...A most lovely post. Your kitchen is so pretty. There are parts of your decorating that emulate my own so MUCH. Uncanny, really. Take care and have a terrific Tuesday! Susan

Carol,
Your home is so cozy. Evening is my favorite time in my home too. Tonight it's Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup and Corn Bread. It's only 50 degrees and windy today so soup is gonna be great!

I love your kitchen, so pretty. And the lamplight pictures just make everything look all warm and cozy.

You know, you are right, because if we're not loving ourselves then we're going to have trouble loving each others properly. So true!

Good Evening, Carol. Such pretty light fixtures/lamps. I love the warm glow in the house after dinner, too. It's a wonderful feeling to love the place we call home! Have a good night.

Well I would agree...of course I still love your kitchen and your home just says "welcome" and enjoy! You home shouts home...isn't that what we all want our homes to do?

Enjoyable post!

Home is such a wonderful sanctuary, isn't it? I love your foyer, your stairwell, and your kitchen. Have a great rest of the week, Carol!

Carol,
your home looks so inviting and warm. I love the dim evening light in homes that make one want to snuggle in and think all is right with world.

Your home looks so warm and inviting... I love your kitchen! Those apron sinks are my favourite. I would love one when we renovate (some day!!), but have often thought; are they very practical? I was wondering if the front might get scratched if someone was wearing a belt??

there is no place like home and I am so thankful for mine. Always love seeing your kitchen!
