Cozy Things To Make, Bake & Buy

I’m not a huge fan of winter – salty slush & icy sidewalks & frozen eyelashes are not my friends. But there is something to be said for the magic of a White Christmas – twinkly lights are just so extra-special when reflected in an untouched snowfall – and that snowy chill in the air makes you want to curl up next to a fire with a mug of hot cocoa (Bailey’s optional) and a good book or knitting in hand. The holiday season brings with it a desire to hunker down and get cozy – so here are some cozy things to make, bake or buy this holiday season and all winter long. Wrap them up and slide under the tree – or be a little selfish and give yourself the gift of coziness – we won’t tell if you don’t share this time!

      This was the perfect thing to publish before heading off to bed Marisa! I’m going to dream of wood stoves & piles of down comforters. It’s funny because I’m usually so bah-humbug about snow (I love it from a distance but don’t really love tromping about in it) but I want to see Lunenburg all white-it is really the most ridiculously perfect wonderland town in the winter. Thank you for reminding me of how much I love the coziness of our Canadian winters!

    So funny, for my Christmas holidays I will be on the couch under the air conditioning here in Australia 🙂 I will be eating fresh tropical fruit and watching chick flicks on DVD (my end of year tradition – a chick flick marathon).

    For my winter, 6 months from now, I will be drinking hot milo (malted chocolate milk) and probably reading Somerset Studio with a cat in my lap to keep me warm. Ah bliss.

      Love this comment Coral & how cozy Christmas means something totally different for you in Australia! I’ll have to come visit for Christmas one year to see how it feels to wear a bathing suit on Christmas day:)

  2. After years of wind, ice, & snow,
    I decided it’s time to go,
    No longer happy hunkering down,
    I now live where sunshine’s found!

    P.S. Those chocolate brioches look divine though & I adore that Ashley G. print!

    Lovely roundup of wintery goodness. It’s gloomy here today but unseasonably warm, so I’m looking forward to there being some snow and chill soon. I love winter best when snuggled inside. 🙂

    Such a wonderful, comforting post on this dreary, wet & cold day here in Ontario! I can just picture myself being cozy wearing that gorgeous cowl & eating those scrumptious brioches by the light of that pretty candle 😉 Thanks, Marisa!

    Thanks everyone for sharing your cozy… or summery visions of the holidays! It’s been a bit grey, mild & dreary around these parts… must say we’re looking forward to a bit of the white stuff if only to make it feel more Christmassy!
