Day 888's pretty


This has long been one of my favorite images, as I can remember desperately wanting a window seat when I was a child and scheming a way to put one in my bedroom. This little nook would be a lovely spot to sip a cup of coffee and watch a quiet snowfall. The vintage silver on the wreath is the perfect touch.

Happy Weekend!

What a lovely nook. I've always wanted a window seat too. They just seem so cozy and offer such a wonderful perch to nestle in and stare off into the outdoors. xoTrina

Sitting in that window seat watching the snow falling on a crisp evening would be amazing.

I too dream of a window seat - I have seen far too many movies with wonderful ones in. I have also taken to looking at houses I have driven past and thinking - Oh I bet they have a window seat in that window! Perfect one you have chosen too.

Oh I've loved window seats since a kid too! I wonder what does that to us?

Absolutely beautiful. What a calming space.

I was lucky enough to actually have a window seat in my room as a child -- thank you for reminding me of times where I would look out the window from my inside tree house!
