The woods and our first fire

These are the woods behind our new home. Last week it was so beautiful. The leaves were blowing around,looking like a swirling, yellow snowfall. It reminded me of a magic fairyland forest. I love to just be able to look out of my kitchen windows and see this.



Saturday, November 1st, was our first night in the new home. We had no gas, which meant no heat. We decided to have a fire in the fireplace. It was so cozy and peaceful. The picture is a little dark, but you can get a feel for what it was like. Don't you want to come over and share some homemade cookies and hot chocolate?? You're welcome anytime... :)

Hope you all have a happy Wednesday. I've got to unpack, do a mountain of laundry, and hit the fabric store. Fun stuff.

Hi, It's Robin from The Robin's Nest...
I am leaving this message on everyone's blog that signed up for the Stocking Swap.
This is a reminder that everyone needs to send out their stockings to their partners by next Tuesday November 18th. If you have already sent out your stockings please disregard this message and thank you for being so speedy. :)
If anyone is having any trouble sending out their stockings I need to know TODAY. I am very understanding of the tough times some might be going through but do not want to see anyone left out. That would be very sad.
I do hope you all had fun making or buying things for your partners stocking and that maybe some of you made a new friend along the way~♥
Thank you for helping me make this Stocking Swap a success.

Much Love,
Robin

Nice! What a lovely bonus having your own wooded area-I bet there area lot of squirrels and birds waiting for a snackie. :)

So happy you are in your new home this makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over!
