I am so glad to see November's sweet face!  I know Winter is not officially here, yet, but we did get a skiff of snow on Friday evening.  It was so lovely, everything looked so soft and pure.

I have a few more timeless Cottage Decor images to show you today.

You can see where my mind is going with that last photo!  No, I'm not playing Christmas music...yet...but I will be very soon.
I guess the Americans still have Thanksgiving to get through before they begin to seriously think about and decorate for Christmas.  But, here in Canada, our Thanksgiving was a month ago, so there is nothing standing in my way!

I also want to tell you about a fabulous giveaway over at Secret Garden Cottage. 
  She has a whole host of treasures just waiting for a lucky winner.

Lavender products from Maria of Dreamy Whites...

And the Autumn issue of Jeanne d'Arc Living Magazine!
How exciting is that?  Now quickly go over and leave Jo a comment, if you win, you will be ever so glad you did!

Have a beautiful day my friends!

Hugs, Cindy

Love that last photo. Not much for Halloween, I start listening to Christmas music on the day most are celebrating Trick or Treat. Look forward to discovering more of your blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful images, Cindy.

I love November and approaching winter with the promise of snow. I don't mind at all. Even though I used to have to drive to work in snow, I still loved seeing it.

I really love these images, Cindy, and that one of the two chairs in that great color in front of the couch is fantastic!

This is a neat giveaway, too! THanks for letting everyone know about it.

Finally back from out of town and am pretty tired, but I wanted to drop by for a visit.

Hi Cindy! All of these cottage decor pictures (including the ones from the other post) are wonderful but I particularly love that white sofa with the cute, flirty pleats.

I have a feeling these last couple months of 2010 are going to be exceptionally crazy-hectic-busy for me. After a year of renovating, it looks like it's time to start the formal move to the house in Hooterville. Ugh, I can't even think about Christmas yet! I wonder if I can get a 6 month extension??? ;)

My fav photo is the white sofa with pops of red and blue. Two of my favorite colors. I can't believe it's November already. I feel behind on the holiday thing. But I could listen to Christmas music year round. Can't wait to see how you're going to decorate with that inspiration photo.

Hi Cindy,
Love the touches of red in some of these rooms...I think red touches just liven up a room. Can't wait to see your Christmas decorations. You must share pictures as soon as they start coming up...Oh and by the way, I've been having a few of those "good days." :-) Yay! I'm feeling good, thank you so much for asking. Have a wonderful autumn day my dear friend.

Much love to you,

I love all the pics, especially the first and last ones.
You have a great eye -- they're all very inspiring images.

And don't you love the timing of Canadian thanksgiving? It is so nice to get to really enjoy the long build up to Christmas without the other holidays mixed in :) Though I do love American Thanksgiving, too.
