Boy – this cool weather really sneaked up on me!! A few days ago, we were wearing shorts & t-shirts & now we MUST send mittens to school with the kiddos so they can play outside without frostbite!
It will be in the 40’s in the morning & the temps will rise & it will be t-shirt weather in the afternoon. Just crazy!
So preparing the nest for these ‘crisp’ days:
EQUIPMENT NECESSITIES to prepare for chilly temps:
No. 1 – Floors to catch drips & dirt:
No. 2 – Shoe/Boot storage
No. 3 - Hooks to hang snowpants & jackets
remember this ski coat tree one from country home?
No. 4 - Storage for scarves, mittens & hats
While I’d love to have a full mudroom like maybe this someday:
For now I’m content with little shelf by the backdoor that houses locker baskets (where we will store mittens & hats). Keys & other miscellaneous out the door items are stored here as well.
A cozy little cottage sign I made this last weekend to welcome my lovies as they come in the backdoor…..aqua background (oh my - very similar to the background of this blog!) and red ticking stripe. Yummy & cozy.
Check out those new aqua boots just waiting for a rainy day!
Though I’m not REALLY looking forward to wearing mittens - I’m in a bit of denial – I do think the cozy mittens & boots, etc. are so pleasing to decorate with.
No. 5 – A bench to take a seat to remove said boots
Ok girlies – Enjoy your week – cozy up those nests of yours!
Tell us how you’re making your nest cozy & preparing for the seasons storage needs!!
