A Quilt Lover's Tea in the Gardener's Cottage



                                                                                   Hello everyone,

                                                     It was a busy but nice weekend here as we had our
                                                     family of 24 for our traditional turkey dinner
                                                     plus aprox. 40 people from Japan in two separate
                                                     tours.Everything is back in order now and I am
                                                     looking forward to afternoon tea at my friends
                                                     cottage.
                                                       Today for you quilt lovers it is tea the
                                                     Gardener's Cottage.
                                                   
                                                           When my friend Sharon came for a visit she brought
                                                            two beautiful quilts along with her.
                                                   

         So you can snuggle in and enjoy
a quiet cup of tea.



            These beautiful quilts are both handmade.

Tea time
I got this vanity at the
70 mile yard sale a few
years ago.
It is at the end of the bed
in the Gardener's Cottage
but I am thinking I should
    find a spot for it in the house.

                                                                      A little peek around.        


                                         I love how easy it is to change the look
                                                    of the cottage with by adding a colorful
                                                   quilt or two.

                                                                 Wishing you a beautiful day!

                                                                                        Carolyn

The turquoise and white quilt just pops in the cottage. Do you still decorate it for Christmas?

What pretty quilts, Carolyn! I love the colour of your hydrangea; what an exquisite shade. Glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving with your family. It won't be long now and we'll be decorating for Christmas. I found this year just flew right by, how about you?

Blessings,
Sandi

That lovely aqua and white quilt adds so much to the cottage. It would be a nice cozy spot for tea. After your busy weekend you deserve it!

Oh! the quilt kinda looks like the color we are painting Ingleside. It's a deep Robin ' s Egg Blue called Island Breeze :) I'm loving it.
