Cozy Night In

Friday, April 7, 2017 by

A few ideas for a cozy night in with some favourite movies, books, candles and wine.

While many parts of the internet are posting pretty spring bulbs in bloom, buds on the trees and gardens beginning to flower…. the weather here has been dismal, cold, wet and windy. That feeling of needing to hibernate in the evenings is still going strong. So to get us through the end of this season, I thought I’d post a few of my favourite movies and books that have gotten me through the winter so far.  Add in some pretty succulents and a scented candle and your scene is set.  Maybe you’ll find something new to pick up for your nights in too!
