if you can't beat 'em, join 'em

I'm resigning myself to an early fall. It's cold. I'm wearing jeans. Pretty soon I'll be forced to carry a sweater with me. I've decided that I have to embrace it (survival tactic) or else I'll mope for a whole month (and no one likes a moper). So I'm starting to dream about pumpkin lattes and woolly sweaters and getting cozy. What better way to start than by reorganizing my living room (okay, so what if it's a bi-monthly activity)? Last night I created a definite split between my 'dining area' (not shown) and my 'living area' (pictured above). I'm happy with it. And now I have a very inviting, corner reading nook with a coffee table for easily-reachable book access and coffee mug placement. I hung out there for 4 hours last night and felt very satisfied. That's a good sign.

Your new room layout does look very cozy - and if you can sit there for 4 hours, then it's all good. But wanting fall to come? Now I have a problem with that. Ottawa summers are too short to wish for fall. Except I am tiring of my summer wardrobe.

Those paintings over your fireplace are striking. Are they by the same artist?

Thanks Yukie! Yes, they're actually by me. I painted them a few years ago. They're for sale if you're interested ;)

So tempting!! Do you have any more of your art online?

Yukie - no, I don't. I really should put something together to showcase what I've done, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
