Transferware Tea in the Sunroom




Hello everyone,

 I hope you are having a great
week. I have been  working at
          my sewing machine the last couple
                 of days. I have discovered that slipcovers
              are not easy to make but I persevere!


At the thrift shop I found a few
brown and white transferware
pieces that match some of what
I already had and love.


I had the teapot for awhile so I was
happy to find the cream and sugar
bowl that matched it.

So on a nice sunny January day
it is lovely to take a tea break
in the upstair  sunroom.

My teacups co ordinate nicely
with the teapot.

                                                                             
                                                                        Old fashioned sugar cookies
                                                                        are a favorite here.




                      Sunshine streaming in is so cheerful.


Tea time.


                                             I hope you are enjoying some warm
                                                        and cozy tea times at your house too!

                                                                  Thank you for visiting me!

A Few Changes in The Boathouse



                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                             I hope your week is going well.

                                                             When I was going through my old
                                                             photos I came across these shots
                                                             that I took of the Boathouse last
                                                             fall after I made some new pillows
                                                             for the bed and changed the quilt
                                                             to the reversible side.
I used to sew a lot but
now it seems I only make
simple pillows.





                                                                                   
                                                                           The previous look or a least one
                                                                           of them. I enjoy playing house in
                                                                           here.....an old childhood pleasure.

A Christmas look.

                                         For those of you who don't know what
                                                   our little Boathouse looks like I have
                                                   included an outdoor shot of it from last
                                                   fall.

                                                      Well, I have my sewing machine set up
                                                    so I going to make a few more pillows
                                                    while I work up the courage to try to
                                                    make a slipcover for a wing back chair.
                                                      If you never see it here on the blog you
                                                    will know it was a total flop!

                                                                          Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                      Carolyn
