I’ve landed right here beside this frosty window with a view.
No televisions. No telephones. Just water, tall trees, wine, a fireplace, a featherbed, a book, and a view. Sure there’s a chatty innkeeper to avoid, but I’m clever like that. Once she leaves I prance around here like I own the joint. Carefully avoiding the other guests of course. Too much talking can really ruin a perfectly good getaway
I think I’m falling in love with this window. And pretty much everything here. I’m saving it all in my memory banks for future withdrawal. Like in a month from now when I’m breaking up a little boy fight, or rummaging through my desk for an envelope for a tooth, or gritting my teeth during a meeting, or repairing the broken pencil sharpener.
Okay, gotta go. Someone’s gotta bring the cozy back. May as well be me.

LOVELY MARY ANN
Mendocino is wonderful in the winter. One of my favorite places to unwind after a hectic shoot! Enjoy!!!
Kim Owens says
Looks like a little slice of heaven 🙂 Reminds me of the view outside my grandfather’s house in England when I was young. Thanks for sharing your dream location!!
Sugar, these don’t even look real they are soooooo lovely! What a lucky girl you are and to think…Lisa is right next door!! If only, right? Enjoy your lovely visit and have a cuppa for me. smooches
How do you do it??
You choose the nicest places. And you know how to enjoy them too.
it’s fourteen degrees here or something
and the wind tunnel that is 33rd street is
gonna whip me when I leave the cozy confines
of Borders … jack frost took a hefty jawful
out of my face and I
WANT. THAT. WINDOW.
enjoy for all of us.
Melissa S. says
Where do you come up with these places?! You seem to hit a home run everytime you travel. The rest of us need your directory!
I didn’t read the title of your post very well and I thought it was “Bringing Crazy Back” – Oops! Nothing crazy about that pretty pink vase with pink and red flowers together – thanks Mary Ann for keeping us “at home” in touch with the lovely things you see on your travels.

Definitely good images for the memory bank…can I borrow some for when my 3yo won’t eat something that was his favorite food yesterday or when he throws a fit about putting his shirt on by himself? That would be great.
You’re bringin’ cozy back and we don’t know how to act! 😉
Mary Ann Moss says
Because youre cute and because I like you I will gladly disclose the location! The village of Mendocino. Headlands Inn. Bessie Strauss room. Winter rates are great! This room has the best view in the joint.
ocean lotus says
where is this?
i gotta say, girl, i love your posts.
Oh, oh, oh…I want to be there too! But in my own room with no tv, telephone or chatty neighbors. I would only wave to you as you walked by. In my dreams I live in a house just like that…sigh!
i’ve put this cozy place in my own little memory bank–shhh…
Shelley Noble says
That looks heavenly!
I don’t vacation, but I would LIVE there. If I email you, would you say the town you found this slice of loveliness in, if I promise never ever have it booked it when you’re wanting to use it?!
Erin Perry says
I had to laugh, whenever Margot and I stay at a B&B, we too, do our best to avoid the “chatty” innkeepers and other guests. What’s with extroverts anyway? The whole point of a vacation is to get away from people!
Looks like you’ve managed it with aplomb! Enjoy this time.

Looks like a good place to curl up and forget about the world…. Heaven! I signed up for your class last night. Can’t wait to get started–all of your students’ comments and photos got me hooked! *Sherri*
I love COZY! Enjoy.
Cindy (Junque Art) says
