" Comfort "

What do you think of when you hear the word 'comfort'?


Do you have things in your home that are there just for your comfort?


As I get older....I cherish my creature comforts more and more! When I had kids....4 boys growing up only 7 years apart from the oldest to the youngest...I didn't worry that much about comfort! I considered getting into bed at night to sleep comfort! lol

I'm very thankful for all of my blessings...and I'm enjoying reading the 'gratitude' posts so many are sharing during this month. I have kept a journal most of my life and my sweet cousin and I emailed our gratitude lists every day for awhile. That was inspiring! Writing in my journal every day brings me comfort.

So did you see I put a quilt on the cedar chest at the end of my bed?


I'm not sure where I got it....I've had it SO long. For some reason this year, I need a quilt for comfort!


What brings you comfort?

My husband, my family, my home and at this time of year a big warm quilt on the bed. Love the patchwork one you have.

My husband found 2 green twin blankets around 1987 at a yard sale and when you wrap up in them it is heavenly. We don't know what they're made of -it's not fleece- but they're very tightly spun and just feel toasty as soon as you wrap up in them. At night in the winter, even in Florida, we use them. Pure comfort.

Great post. Quilts are so comforting. When I first read the title of your post, I immediately thought food. Comfort food. Oh my! I need to go on a diet!

I love your blog and your quilt. My mother gave me a new quilt before she passed away. I also have the last one she pieced together and didn't get to finish. The neatest thing is she had saved several old quilts in her suitcase my dad gave her when he was stationed in Paris during WWII. I found those quilts and gave my daughters and nieces each one along with one each for my siblings and myself. Quilts are made for comfort! I am now following your blog and enjoy your posts so much.

I love that you added that cozy quilt to the foot of your bed. I think anything involving love brings comfort :)

My soft and big pillows and the arms of my hubby gives me so much comfort.

Your quilt is so gorgeous and I can see why it brings you feelings of comfort and warmth. I love spending time with my family and these days my blog brings me lots of happiness too as I can make friends with people all around the world, just like you!

Thanks so much, on that note, for your sweet Birthday message Diane. It really meant a lot to me.

Best wishes and happy weekend,

Hi LD, Ow, I love that quilt on top of the cedar chest..

As far as comfort goes, yes, I suppose my bedroom is a comfortable room and my livingroom as well. I like you, have them looking pretty but still comfortable at the same time. I feel that if a room is just all looks, who will want to use it right?? Take care and enjoy your home.


Dianne said...

My dog is very comforting to me... There's something very comforting about unconditional love... I also love soft robes and blankets...

Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.

Hi Diane! Oh, I just love your bedroom and that quilt looks so comfy-perfect on the hope chest! I like a cozy home, with the things I love scattered about, and the people I love near by...including my bloggy friends like you!...That brings me comfort!
Enjoy your Sunday, Sweetie! xo Paulette

Definitely quilts for comfort.
Not just sleeping or resting under one, I find working on them to be comforting!
