The Sunroom

Hello everyone,
     The weather has turned more fallish her the last few days and we have had a touch of frost so I started to fluff up the sunroom a little bit as it is a nice place to sit for a bit on a cool but sunny day.
   I decided to put these two smaller wicker chairs in here for the winter this year. They were on the veranda all summer but I made a few changes there too for the fall.


I bought this little dresser at a yard sale earlier in the summer and it fits nicely under the old cabinet on the wall.
It is a good spot for a cup of tea.
Some late summer roses from our garden.

Some china in the cabinet.
I seem to have little stashes of china all over the house!

I love my new hatbox that I bought in Maine.



Well,that is my little sunroom fluffed up a little for those cooler days when it is too chilly to enjoy my tea time outdoors. This is the time of year that I start moving back indoors so I always like to make a few little changes inside to cozy things up a  bit more.

Today I am joining the house in the roses for Show off your cottage Monday.

Enjoy your day!

Carolyn

You are always generous with your pictures for all of us to enjoy and admire! I see you have the English Gardening magazine on the table. I love that magazine especially during our cold winters.
Your china collection is amazing...like you, it's owner. :-)

You have outdone yourself again Carolyn! Very pretty indeed! Last night we attended a fundraiser in our community and they served Lobster flown in from PEI and we were napping our toes to some good old fiddle music too! Brought back so many good memories of our trip to your Island three years ago... Have a great week!

Your photos are always inspiring and refreshing. Here we are welcoming cooler temperatures for a change, though I know you hate to see your summer leave.

Dear Carolyn,

What a pretty dresser you found! It looks perfect in your sun room. Temperatures in Holland are dropping slowly too, but fortunately we haven't had any frost yet. I hope it will stay away for a little while longer.

Wish you a happy new week!

I would just love to sit a spell. Maybe even tilt my head back, shut my eyes, and take a quick snooze. I'm at ease just looking at your beautiful sunroom : )
