Show Off Your Cottage Monday

Welcome to “Show Off Your Cottage Monday”, a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.

Today, I'm celebrating the return of light...

It's 5:26pm as I write this... and is still light outside. Goodbye to short days and long nights! We're spinning back towards the light.

My steps are lighter these days, because I see the change taking place in Nature... I see a future filled with hope and flowers! May the light brings hope for all humankind... In the mean time, light yourself a candle bright and dance within that gentle light. What are you celebrating today?
Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re celebrating. If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below. Just please be sure to:

1. Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address. 2. Link back to the house in the roses from your post so that your readers can come and see what everyone else is celebrating today! 3. Copy and paste our little logo on your blog so your readers can also join our celebration. 4. And enjoy your home!


  1. I too will be ready for longer days and days when I get out in my yard and garden. I know I just seem more sluggish with less light! Your picture is lovely!

  2. Hi Cielo...sooooo happy the days are getting longer. I just told my son the same thing yesterday...mentally knowing that makes me happier, too! :-)
    Beautiful pics in your post!

  3. Oh such beautiful photos...
    I just find myself happy with each day, Cielo...long or short, they are all beautiful. I love summertime but I adore the winter.
    Happy New Year, bj

  5. Dear Cielo, so good you`re having longer days (we will be having shorter ones?? nooooo!!)
    Very pretty decor in your home, your dinning room is great.
    I´m so happy I´ve met you this year, hope next one we keep visiting each other.
    I wish you and your family a very happy 2010, and may it brings much love, health, prosperity and blessings to you all.
    Con mucho cariño,
    Maria Cecilia

  8. I was just telling my Husband yesterday that the light seems brighter now. I love it.


  9. I look forward every year to that shortest day -- in order to look forward to all the longer days to come. It's a rebirth of hope and life -- lovely post!

  10. You have a beautiful blog, everything is so delightful. I found you from Google search and was so happy to wander into this loveliness.
    That image you have of the angel in the snow with frozen roses was fabulous. Thought it would make a lovely banner for winter. Thanks for sharing and making me smile.
