Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed

Hello everyone,

I decided to clean out our little garden cottage today as it was too windy in the garden. So after giving it a good cleaning and washing the linens and drying them on the line- the bed looked pretty inviting so I thought you might like a Mother's Day breakfast in bed. You can spend the night can't you?

This little garden cottage is decorated with yard sale or thrift finds and each summer I enjoy setting it up and changing a few things to keep it interesting.

I hope you enjoy a light breakfast-I did have a few delicious muffins my daughter gave me but sadly I got hungry and ate them ! Not a very good hostess am I!

Do you take lemon with your tea-it is good for you!

Love white linens,don't you?

After your breakfast you can linger in bed for awhile and read-so cosy!

Antique lace insert coverlet on the bed with a lacy bedskirt under it.

Are you getting tired yet?

I will tiptoe out and leave you to relax with your breakfast in bed-enjoy!

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. Our family is all having dinner at my daughter's home where her little one is having a fifth birthday party as well as our Mother's Day celebration.

Happy Mother's Day!

Take care,

Carolyn

Happy Mother's day, Carolyn! The bed does look really inviting. Were you ever a interior stylist? You are so good at decorating your place...

Katy Noelle said...

Dear Carolyn, don't you just love how most of our work is awfully fun?! What a pretty room. My favorite part is the tea cup. I, also, love that you ate the muffins. One of these days, I will learn to drink my cup of tea and photograph someone else's instead of staring longingly through the lens at my mug!!! One of these days....

Love, Katy

I would love to spend my day in that bed. It looks just awesome!! And how thoughtful of you to put that stair for me to use. I have such short legs, lol.
Here in Sweden we're celebrating mother's day the last Sunday in May. So we have to wait a bit to do it.
Have a great weekend. And hopefully with a lot better weather than we have. Here it's windy and rainy.
