Breakfast in Bed

Hello everyone,
      Before going out into the garden to enjoy the warm spring day I have prepared a light breakfast for you. 
This blue and white room has the original pine floors and a toile theme.
It is not a fancy room by today's standards but it has a fresh,relaxed look.
I have had this old dresser/vanity for years but I think it suits the room just fine.

A light breakfast of tea and homemade scones.
This little teapot came home with me from England a few years ago and sits out on display.
You can linger in bed for awhile longer if you like before joining me in the garden where there is still lots to do.

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday today.

Thank you for visiting me and I hope you have a lovely day!

Carolyn

I think this room invites a bit of lingering, Carolyn! Just lovely. It all looks very classic to me. Love the toile and the white keeps it so fresh and bright.

Fancy or not I think this room is calm and beautiful. Would love to have a cup of tea there in bed, lol.
I wish we had the same weather as you have. Here it's cold, windy and, right now, rainy. Seems as we had our spring in March!!
Have a nice day.
Love Elzie

As always..beyond beautiful! The white chair..OMY..I cannot ever discard a wonderful chennile bedspread..always a place to use and enjoy it..one of mine became a curtain in a spare bedroom. Not everyone "gets it" but tha is ooookay w me. I hope your audience knows quality new chenille spreads can still be found.
