December creates the urge to cuddle up and stay warm. Be it on the couch, or in bed with a book or a DVD... Even for nursing a cold one can fill a hot-water bottle and just cuddle up inside a soft woolen blanket. Sipping a hot tea or a hot chocolate. I do love both and they are so soothing! That's the good part of this month, and the following months. Are you feeling the same urge?
Luckily I'm not that cold natured any more. But I've used this hot-water bottle quite often for feeling warm, especially my feet.
This Italian wool throw from Cecchi e Cecchi is my favorite for winter time. To wrap around knees and legs or just to cuddle up in it on the sofa. The matelassé coverlet is French Yves Delorme Outlet in a rose pattern. We are fortunate to live only 4 hours away from an Outlet Store in Chattanooga, Tennessee. On line they don't always have all the items, but it is worthwhile trying!
Pillow sham is also French Yves Delorme in a rose pattern matelassé in 100% cotton. We always prefer natural fibers!
The hot-water bottles are from SIGG Switzerland.

Pottery Barn shows this Entry Bench with a vintage hot-water bottle.
The very same I was cuddled with as a baby! It had a brass screw-on top and this is still at my parents' home. Fond memories.
Mom would fill it up whenever we had a cold, wrap a towel around it and tuck it behind our backs or feet. We had two of those bottles.
How such an add can trigger fond childhood memories...
These are almost antique hot-water bottles from SIGG Switzerland, from the link I've used under the 2nd photo.
Do you still have any of those old hot-water bottles?
Or any fond childhood memories to share?
