tuesday twinsday … cozy bedding, chilly winter

I have some really fun new-for-2013 features planned for traci zeller designs: the blog … but you’ll still see a few “old” favorites around!

Couldn’t you just eat up these little blondies in their warm, nubby sweaters?  What a precious pair!  Ready for a room with the same color story … and a rustic, almost outdoor feel?

I may be a grown-up, but I’d feel just as cosseted and cozy in this yummy cable knit bedding.  It’s been chilly here in Charlotte — not strange for a North Carolina winter, I suppose, but colder than it has been — and I’d like to curl up in bed with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate.

I’m also crazy for this similar bedding … but with a pop of red.  Remember how I feel about neutrals plus red?  Maybe next year the little girl will have red tights or a hair bow!

My mom used to knit clothes for me when I was a child, but I don’t have the patience for that … much less taking on a project like this bedding … which you (theoretically) can DIY.   But perhaps that would be a good “bedrest project” for expectant mothers of multiples (assuming none of the terrible preterm labor drugs)?   Of course, that’s just cruel irony — making comfy new bedding for the longest period of sleep deprivation you are likely to ever experience!  Just thinking about it makes me want to take a nap.

What blanket do you curl up with?

    I love this post! It’s so cozy. I bought an oversized cable sweater this winter and thought it would be my cozy go to top when I was too lazy to really get dressed. Funny thing is, whenever I wear it I get the most compliments! I love the cover on the bed.

    We had gotten a few really pretty blankets when I first had Sheila. Two of which were knit by my SILs and one was a family friend – I love them all and they are so special. This would be a great way to bring in some neutral bedding and have it be cozy and special – I might have to get one of my SIL’s on board with making a neutral blanket for us.
