I have to admit, I'm not a big Christmas-themed movie watcher. I love them, but hardly ever take a time out to enjoy watching one during the holiday season. The movies I tend to gravitate toward this time of year "take me back" a decade or two. Not all of them are Christmas themed, but still carry that holiday-cozyish spirit; many of them were my favorites as a kid, and I would spend my entire holiday break(s) watching them over and over. My Christmastime faves:
The backyard: It's spitting snow! The swing was put up for winter.
My favorite part is the fire pit.
Mom's had this for years - it's my favorite piece of wall decor! And appropriate - the room it's hanging in is definitely a cat nap cozy kind of room.
You know what they say: "A house is not a home without a pitchfork".

I know it's dark, but dim lights are a big thing at mom's house.
So are antique popcorn poppers! (Be Merry!)
You know... the necessities. TV, CD player, Spice rack, Peppermints.
Currently burning: Cranberry Woods Candle by Slatkin & Co.
One of my favorite items - the Grand Central Station clock!
You can write on the rooster with chalk! Cool!
There are many a skinny cabinet in mom's home - in just about every corner :)
Fiestaware and a pitchfork! Goes together like a charm, who would have thought?
It's not uncommon to find Mac sleeping in the bathroom -
or anywhere else, for that matter!
The gorgeous tree - which she is planning to replace with a tall, "skinny" tree next year. Of course, she says that every year - for like, the past five years.
Now that you've taken a little tour of mom's West Virginia home, it's time to relax in at the "Cat Nap Inn".
As you can see, it's impossible to not feel cozy when visiting this home in the mountains of central West Virginia. I spend most of my "visiting" time in a sleepy, lazy daze! And the magic that happens in the kitchen? Let's just say that mom's brownies keep me coming back to WV.
