Stuffiness







I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. A soft rain was pattering outside my window, a chilly air blowing into the room, and me under two or three cozy blankets. For some strange reason my allergies are hitting me hard right now, so I'm in a perpetual state of stuffiness. I have this huskiness to my voice that I like, but the drip, drip, drip isn't the greatest. I don't feel "bad" per se, but it takes so much energy to be "fine." If that makes sense. I thought these images from Pottery Barn, coupled with cozy little items from Etsy, were ideal for a day like today. I want nothing more than to sit, curled up on my couch, drinking copious amounts of tea, reading a book!

1. soft merino bracelet from easternsky
2. felt acorns from auxpetitsoiseaux
3. brown bird branch pillow from norajane

Feel better! I swear that a good cup of tea, a cuddly blanket and a good book will cure just about anything.

My little one has horrible allergies too, and I see how exhausting it is for her to just be fine. I hope you're feeling better soon. These images are stunning and I love how you personalized the PB with touches of etsy--lovely.

Sorry to hear you're having so many problems with your allergies...I've had the same problems this year for some reason. These are wonderful pairings -- those images are so cozy!

Aweee..I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like the perfect kind day to stay in bed and get better. I hope you were able to do so. :)

I love that pillow!! I bought my Mom a bag on Etsy made out of that same fabric.

I love waking up to a soft rain. What a wonderful way to cleanse your morning.

I hope you finally get to the "fine" stage. ;)
