A Sunroom Tea

I am happy you came for a cup of tea in the sunroom. Even though it is cold outside the sun has warmed this little sunroom up nicely and you can really feel the heat from it. Some of you may remember having breakfast in the sunroom awhile ago.
But today we are having tea and some pretty scotch cookies.
Don't worry there are more in the cookie jar so please help yourself!
See,I told you I had more!
I love having some plants in here but it is still too cold at night to leave them in here so I move them in at night. Pretty soon they can stay and later I will start some seeds in trays and watch them grow.
Maybe you would like to do some knitting while you are here-I could use a new pair of mitts (HeHe!)
I love the lace curtain on the way to the sunroom.
If you don't want to knit you can enjoy the magazine while I get more tea and cookies.
Or just put your feet up and relax!
Aren't they almost to pretty to eat? Well,almost but not quite!
Last week when it was mild we moved the furniture out and gave the floor a couple of coats of Ivory paint- it was green before with a mat painted on it but this is brighter and fresher.I am still playing around with furniture in here so don't be surprised if I drag you back.
I love the daintiness of this china.
Well,there are lots more whites to see at Kathleen's Faded Charm and Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is also celebrating Wednesday Whites so enjoy!
Thank you so much for sharing tea with me.

Hi Carolyn,

You have been very active!! To have such a sunroom as yours is one of my dreams. When we rent a cottage for our summer holidays I often choose one with a sunroom. The light and warmth in such a room just makes your relax and enjoy. Your cookies look delicicious. I sometimes wish I had time to do some more baking, but alas. Like you I enjoy it very much!

Wish you a sunny day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Hello Carolyn,

You have a very nice sunroom and the cookies are so cute!

I´m having a problem with my blog. Seems it´s been hacked by someone. We´ll see if anything can be done to redirect it again. So, an advice to all of you - change password before it happens to you too.

Thank you,
My Blueberry House

After I finish my coffee..I'll pick up my crochet hook and begin to create.

How beautiful, what a pretty morning read..thank you!

Such a lovely room. Your cookies and tea sound really good on this cold day. It's supposed to warm up a bit tomorrow. Have a lovely day.

Gorgeous post, Carolyn. Just top-notch, as always. You know what? I think the china in the last photo is the Rose Cascade pattern...Bavarian? I could be wrong but it might be. It's so lovely. Have a wonderful day. And thanks for the yummy cookies and tea. They were awesome. Sincerely, Susan from

Another wonderful post,as always, Carolyn! Every visit is a joy!
The dainty china looks like my Mother's - very pretty, and I think the ivory paint on your sunroom floor will make the room seem even more like a little piece of heaven. :)
I hope you have a lovely day,

Ok, so this is one white room that I can truly say that I like. Normally I don't like an all white room--but this gets two thumbs up!!! Man, those cookies look smashing!

I loved visiting your sunroom. It would draw me on a sunny winter day. My cat would pick your chenille chair to nap in.

podso said...

I think the sunroom is my favorite room in your house, not that I've ever visited there, but I sort of feel like I have. It's fun to see it empty. I would love a room like that! Great for breakfast I would think!

Julie said...

oh how I do love your sunroom. I would be thrilled to have such a room to sit in and enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing all of its beauty and the whites! I love the little pops of pink, too. And I WILL have one of those awesomely delish looking cookies!!!!!!

Carolyn, your every post is more lovely than the last! I was just telling my husband about your gorgeous home and blog. He mustered as much excitement as he can manage about blogging and agreed that your photos are beautiful! Have a wonderful week.

Cindy said...

Such beauty and the cookies are delicious, too. What a beautiful blog!

Lynn said...

Just love the all the shades and tones of white. Love the texture of the chenille chair, the pillows and the balls of yarn. I have the same white tea pot. Don't you just love the fluted edges on the bottom? You lace curtains are so beauitful. The cookies were almost too pretty to eat, but I did so enjoy the tea and cookie. Thank you so much for inviting me.

Sarah said...

It is such a cold, gray day here. How I wish I were curled up in that chair on your delightful sunporch. A cup of hot tea and one of those delicious cookies would be the "icing on the cake"!

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...
