I must admit that although we’ve had several beautiful days, I am definitely tiring of our overly warm November weather and ready for a change in temperature. When I came across this beautifully renovated British home, all I could think of was the allure of cooler days and what is soon in store. I imagined myself sitting in this lovely room after a good night’s rest
With my book and this tasty treat,
lounging in my cashmere robe
I’d then meander upstairs to get ready for the day.
I would think perhaps a bath might be in order
although I spent so much time enjoying my coffee while reading that I might only have time for a shower
Then it would be time to go out and explore on this beautiful crisp fall morning. I might think a thick sweater
and a cozy vest would be perfect for this weather. Shall I wear this one?
or this one
Oh yes, the second one! And perhaps a hat – you know what they say – you lose a large portion of your body heat through your head. Oh here it is
Now I’ll bet I would wonder where I left my keys? Oh yes, in that lovely old console of course!
After my long walk, I’ll be a tad peckish. So I’ll probably have some lunch here while enjoying the view.
And because I indulged in some lovely beaujolais with my meal, I’ll probably need a little nap.
But then I came out of my reverie and realized it was 60 degrees and raining – again. Well a girl can daydream can’t she?!

totally fun escape – thank you!
Love the word peckish, use it all the time especially after a long night. Reading your blog can’t wait for the cold weather.
Hi Holly – Yes peckish has a little onomatopoeia, right? Today’s at least sunny!
I love your dream. Definitely, the second vest. Dream on…….
Thanks Mary – that house was just so inspiring.
My dream house would look like this with a nod to modern touches.
I too dream of cooler temps and fur muffs and vests and skating!
love those wooden beams….stunning!!!
Sorry we will not be seeing you today!
pve – me too – a few modern touches would make this even more perfect. Hope you all have fun today – can’t wait to see the posts!
Love it all, especially love the belted vest. But how wonderful to have a getaway like this one you’ve shown us today. xx’s
spenderosa – i’m loving that belted vest too – think it’s going on my (rapidly expanding) xmas list!
Oh my, that all sounds (and looks) perfectly divine. What a beautiful home! That bathtub is not to be believed. Love the cashmere robe and the belted vest too…Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my library post. I hope you’re having a lovely Wednesday!
hh – isn’t that bathtub amazing?! Will be back to visit soon!
It’s raining here, too, but better than snow I say!
Hi Connie – I actually prefer the snow to rain – as long as I can still drive safely!
really sounds like the perfect day. Especially love the top image of the english cottage!
AD – that’s my favorite image also!
So cozy! Love it.

What a dreamy day that would be!! Although I’m not sure if you’d ever get me out of the cashmere robe and slippers! ;-)
Hi Traci – Might be my problem also – maybe I should think twice about putting them on my Xmas list!

Hi Sarah – Thanks! Feel free to visit any time.
It’s twenty-five degrees at my house today…I could really use that warm coffee and cashmere robe. Oh, warmth!
Oh dear – not quite ready for that yet!! Sounds like a nice fire might be in order (in addition to the coffee and cashmere of course)!
