Get Comfy & Cosy



                                                              Hello everyone,
                                With the cooler days of Autumn it is nice to take a relaxing afternoon tea
                               in the comfort of home.We have had some cooler days and evenings here,
                               but also some warm muggy days ~ typical for our Island September weather.
                               
                               So, on a cool day it was nice to have tea on the chaise in the bay window
                               looking out into the garden.
                                  A nice cup of tea and a good book makes for a lovely tea break don't you think?                                       When I was growing up I remember my Mom always freshened up in the middle of the                                  afternoon and sat down to enjoy a nice cup of tea and maybe a letter from                                                   home(Holland).
                               It was a habit that stayed with her and even now she still enjoys a little cup of tea.



                                         The sun popped out and warmed things up a bit!
        Hope you enjoyed a nice little break in your busy day!

  Today, I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

                                                                Thank you for visiting,
                                                                                        Carolyn

Oh, Carolyn,

You have such an eye for pretty, elegant images, these looking more like paintings than photos. So romantic and charming a room. Thank you for that island light!

This looks so comfortable. I can't believe the sun is shining through your windows. It has done nothing but rain here in the UK all day :-(

That chaise looks so nice with a view of your beautiful gardens. I think I'd enjoy a cup of tea, a good book and a nap there. :)

Hello Carolyn...I did, indeed, enjoy the break even though it's almost bed time for me.

Take care and enjoy the week of life ahead. Susan

Yes I have my afternoon tea break and love reading your ever so romantic blogpost. Haha, but I have my teatime in front of the pc, but yes sometimes I love to have my tea on the chaise with a good book, lovely.

Carol said...

Wish I could get in that lounge and read all afternoon. I like to have a cuppa after lunch. Have a great week!

My how the room changed when the sun came out. It takes on a golden glow, and softens everything.
I don't think I'd get much reading done laying there, I'd be nodding off before long.

How lovely to have tea by the window with a special book to read. Your wonderful red transferware teapot is so perfect with the roses cup and saucer. Have a great early fall week.
