Feature Favorites - no. 5

Hello, all.
Welcome to another post of "Feature Favorites"!
Well, Thanksgiving is over and we now will be focusing on the winter season, Advent, and Christmas. As usual, I will be sharing some sweet blog posts, photos, and feature websites that have recently caught my eye. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have.

Beach Bonanza
Beach Brella announced their debut of their beautiful 2016 collection, which offers six vintage inspired prints. Each print contributes to making a complete collection for anyone to find the perfect Brella for a sunny beach day, holiday getaway, or special gift. As I dream of possible future beach days, I can imagine sitting under one of these beauties!

Decor and Design
Pam at "Everyday Living" shares a bedroom tour, Christmas style. Canvassed with lots of greenery, the beauty of the outdoors is brought inside. Grab a cup of coffee, find a comfortable chair, and get ready for a visual feast!

Foodie Finds

This is a thick, creamy, cheesy, comforting broccoli cheese soup from scratch. No cans here. It’s surprisingly quick and easy to prepare. A perfect meal for a cold, winter day. See the full recipe over at "Don't Sweat the Recipe"

Fashion Frenzy

Erin, of Happily Howards, shares 3 easy tips for how to be stylish this fall, while still being comfy. This is a perfect outfit for me, as I recently went from working girl to stay at home wife.

Lake and Cottage Lifestyle
Kelly, over at the "Lily Pad Cottage" is already preparing for a warm and cozy cottage setting in her living space. I just want to sit on one of these chairs by a roaring fire and read a good book, while sipping on a cup of tea!! How about you?

Fantastic Photography 

Scott Papek Landscape photography captures the first snow of the year in Stowe, Vermont. Find this and other landscape photos over at the "Papek Gallery".  Sure signs that Autumn is quickly turning into winter.

Pet Portraits
What a cozy spot for this pet bunny...and looks like someone's enjoying a cup of chai or coffee, too! Looks like a perfect afternoon to me, over at "Ava Galindo's" Tumbler page.

Teatime Treasures
Lu Ann Pannunzio, over at "The Cup of Lifeshares some of her favourite DIY tea advent calendars, found online. What great gift ideas, or just a unique way to enjoy tea each day during the Advent season.

Tremendous Travels
Huckberry is an online shop and journal that inspires many active, adventurous, and stylish lives. In a recent journal, Michael van Vliet and Megan McDuffie share the wonder and beauty of America's first national parkYellowstone, "at the Edge of Winter". I have been there in August, but never have seen it's amazing beauty in the winter months.
