Happy New Year from Chateau Gahan

So, this isn't a new home scene for most of you who frequent my blog, but it is probably one of the scenes that most captures what my home life is all about . . . coziness, a big hairy dog, squishy slip-covered furniture, grammy lamps, and a project to work on. This evening I'll forgo the bad TV (at least until 10:00 when a new Jersey Shore comes on . . . guilty as charged) and sit down at the table in the study to work on the invitations for Ali's bridal shower. And a fun project it is, especially when I've got Michael Buble singing in my ear (well, on the stereo, but I pretend to feel his warm breath in my ear as he croons sweet nothings).

Here's to a wonderful 2010. To those who visit me and those whom I visit. We're truly a big happy family. And that doesn't go unappreciated by me, not at all. I am blessed by each and every one of you.

Happy new year to you both!!

As per your question about the buche de noel...I bought it at Whole Foods :) Some years I cheat and buy dessert. Last year I made profiteroles with coffee ice cream.

The first thing I thought to myself when I saw your new post, was the word cozy!!

at the risk of being a copy cat......without reading ONE comment yet....I felt like...Ahhh.....curl up in that cozy chair and hug that hairy pup. My kind of home!
Happy New Year to you too!

I just adore that photo. It does capture so much that is wonderful about you and your home.

Thank you for your sweet message. Happy New Year to you guys too. It is quiet here on the little farm tonight- just me. The Fella is working and I am taking down the Christmas stuff and welcoming in the new year doing my favorite thing- decorating and moving furniture around ;)

Love and hugs,
