It’s that time of year again! One of my favourite stories coming out of Nova Scotia at this time of year is the Christmas tree for Boston and it’s on the move again.
The tree is a thank you to the people of Boston for the aid that was sent at the time of the Halifax explosion. I wrote a post about it here. You can read about the 2016 tree here, the NS government has a page dedicated to it here.
This year the tree is a 47 foot white spruce from Cape Breton that was cut November 15th. The tree left Halifax via truck the 17th and will arrive in Boston today, the 18th. I’d love to be at the lighting ceremony on December 1st. Bucket list item.
November is the month to curl up inside and get cozy again. Something hot to sip, something great to read and a warm, enveloping nest. Throw in a crackling fire and you have perfection.
Not all comfortable and cozy chairs for lounging have to be traditional here are some contemporary samples of nest chairs. Can’t you just imagine how wonderful these would feel?

‘Tis the season for orange. Nothing says welcome like a brightly coloured front door. As long as you are restrained in other accent colours you’re pretty safely in the eye-catching but not the fun-house category. These beautiful doors below are perfect examples of how an orange door can work with any style of architecture.
“You’ll know it when you see it. It’s the house with the orange door!”
