Mom cave? Maybe one day.

I came across a blog, Between Naps On The Porch and Ms. Susan is having a great give-away.  She's giving away a $250 spending spree at Home Goods for the best "mom cave".  Too bad I don't have a mom cave.....just a cave.

I had a friend recently come by and visit my new grand baby and I had once again rearranged my living room furniture and what nots (cause I'm ADD like that) and she complimented me on the "new" look and said "I really like the room like this but I can't wait till it gets cold.  I love coming to Laura's when it gets cold cause it's so cozy in this house."  I think she just loves my spiked apple cider or the dash of rum I drop in her hot cocoa. 

Anyway, love the compliment but cozy is not the first description of this house that comes to my mind.  Old, crooked, dusty, in need of new floors, new bathroom, new roof among other things.  Wait, there's a cobweb! And my oh my am I envious of all those "mom caves" that I've been checking out at Ms. Susan's Between Naps On The Porch.  There are some really cozy ones.  I especially like Ms. Kim's at Savvy Southern Style.  Will I ever have one of those?  I'd even settle for my very own chair and lamp off in a corner.....a quiet corner if at all possible.  Is that possible?  Maybe in about 12 years? Ok, ok, I'm gonna stop whining and work with what I got, cause after all this house came with no mortgage..................

only memories.

I am once again going to do a tablescape for Tablescape Thursday on BNOTP.  Be sure to come back Thursday and check it out and take some time to check out some of the other inspiring tablescapes on BNOTP.  They are absolutely beautiful and might just kickstart some of you into the holiday spirit!
