Some of The Comforts Of Home

Flannel PJ's in a fun animal print (notice the touch of red on the cuff). $14.99 from JCPenney. Fluffy slippers, a birthday gift from a sister. A toasty fire in the fireplace.



These are some of my Comforts of Home. What are yours? How about comfort foods? Want a really great winter comfort food recipe? Visit my newest post at the Home Goods blog.
Welcome Home,
Penny

Reading in bed: flannel pajamas, a cup of tea and the electric blanket on. Sweet! I could do it for hours (which I have).

Comfort food? Milk toast. Hot milk poured on toast and sprinkled with cinnamin and sugar. My mother made it for me when I was a child and to this day I have it when I don't feel well.

Not very glamorous but it works for me.

I love the jammies, Penny. Comforts of home? A fire in the fireplace; snuggling up next to my hubby, or kids, or animals; tuna casserole, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. :-)

Hey Penny,
I love your pj's. Your room looks so relaxing and warm!
I love to stay in bed early in the mornings and drink my cup of coffee and read all of my favorite blogs. I also love my 500 count sheets and my electric blanket. I have to have that! When its my day off from work, I have to force myself to put up my laptop so that I wont stay on it for hours and not get anything done around my cottage.

One of my favorite comfort foods is chicken and dumplings. I would love to have some right now!

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Hi Penny, I love your photo today. You and your pj''s, slippers and the warm glow of the fire make the perfect look of comfort.

My comfort food is home made veg. beef soup. FULL of good stuff not watery. Hot tea and shortbread cookies (just two). My next comfort zone is putting on my favorite PJ's soft knit, pink and my bed all warmed up by my electric blanket. Ahhh warm and cosy and a good nights sleep. I have to be rested so I can knock myself out blogging. LOL. I do time myself though. We do know how time flies when visiting and commenting. When I run out of time I do stop. I give myself two hours or three on Sat. Otherwise I would never get anything done. Well your questions got me going> Smile

Have a wonderful weekend Penny...Jeanne

How sweet! Did you have a birthday this month, too? I love a nice bath...early in the evening and then the evening spent in my pjs! It's especially nice when hubby cooks! We had my favorite comfort food tonight! Breakfast supper (blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs, hash browns with smoked bacon and sausage and hot coffee)! Stay warm!

Playing on my computer, watching the old movie channel, listening to jazz, reading, a big cup of hot chocolate, my quilt, a nice hot shower! That's what I love, and comfort food... in winter, a nice bowl of good soup and a crusty roll. Yum!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Mary said...

Yes, Penny, I like just what you are doing - getting into cozy, comfy 'jamas, lighting the fire (we burn real wood), and putting my feet up. Then I pour a nice Bailey's Irish Cream or a B&B in a brandy snifter, snuggle into my chair and watch the pictures in the fire flames. Life is good and I count all my blessings.

Stay warm - Mary.

Penny,
I love those jammies! A cup of hot coffee with a squirt of whip cream on top, a cozy blanket, flannel jammies, and good fire are all I need to snuggle in for the evening.
Hugs,
Cathie

Love flannel pj's....but hate anything on my feet, I have hot feet no matter how cold it is...comfort food...we love solid white tuna mixed with mashed potaoes and fluffy egg whites baked then covered in a cheddar cheese sauce...sounds odd but talk about comfort...it is the best.

Penny said...

Penny,
Love your jammies. I love Macaroni and cheese with hamburger, Bread and gravy ( a throw back to my childhood), snickerdoodles, old black and white movies, Veranda, Gourmet, Southern Accent, and Bon Appetite magazines and good books.

bj said...

AIN'T LIFE GRAND!!

Beverly said...

Comfort for me is crushed ice, kona blend coffee, oatmeal raisin cookies with pecans, my bed, reading in our sunroom, a nice fire in our fireplace ... I love snuggling in and not having to go out in the cold.

Wishes for lots of warmth and comfort for you.

Michelle said...

Well if that isn't the most relaxing scene, I don't know what is. Penny, I finally got the new Romantic Homes magazine and read your article. I LOVE IT and congrats again!!

Belinda said...

Love your tres chic animal print pajamas, Penny...and the fluffy slippers! :-) The fireplace looks so cozy and makes this beautiful room so inviting too. Comfort food....well, I always gravitate to chicken and rice, and for dessert, warm brownies with Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream, drizzled (generously, of course!) with chocolate syrup. :-)

Pink Slippers said...

This picture does look comfortable.

Hi Penny, How are you today? Love your pjs. I found an adorable pair of red polka dot silky pjs at Sears....come to think of it I have found lots of cute things at Sears lately. Who knew? Is your weather looking as grim as ours is tomorrow? xo Lynn ~ Off to vote on your poll.

Hi Penny,
I love your comforts of home. You look all cozy and warm by the fire.

Can't wait to see what you do with the armoire.

Have a great evening!

Hi Penny
What cute jammies!! My comforts are a cup of tea and one of my quilts wrapped around me. Comfort food is definitely soup! I've made for my quilting friends who are coming to sew with me today.
Hugs, Rhondi

Sounds very relaxing, but I just curl up into my bed and have my husband play with my hair. Thats as good as it gets. I have no fire place, and I don't care for the flannels due to my hot flashes!
