Small Changes in our Kitchen Bay




    Happy Weekend!

  Yesterday was an indoor day for me and
it is the time of year that I like to make
little changes in our home.
Remember, my sweet Mama always
said a change is as good as a rest....not
sure if this is what she meant but it works
for me!
A couple of weeks ago I had a man from
Japan here and he said he has been here 3
times and every time he comes it is different...
why is that he asked. What can I say ~
I inherited that gene from my Dutch
Mama!


                                                          Anyway, The chaise is back upstairs and this
                                                          chair from Ikea that my husband gave me for my
                                                          birthday a few months ago is in it's place with
                                                          a small table for tea time.

                                                                 
            A new to me but very old transferware
   teapot found on our trip to Maine.

                                                                         Plants making there way indoors
                                                                         from the garden......too frosty out
                                                                         there for tender plants.
                                                                Even though it was rainy outside it was cozy
                                                                and comfy here.
                                                               

                                                        This could be my new favorite spot
                                                                   for tea or reading a favorite magazine
                                                                   or book.

                                                                                 Hope you have a wonderful
                                                                                 weekend!

                                                                                              Carolyn

I like your new chair and think this is a wonderful spot to enjoy the view, drink tea and read. I wish there was an IKEA in Moncton don't you? Enjoy the weekend.

Loving your new teapot! That was a great find on your trip! Everything looks very fresh and sweet.

What a lovely nook! The way you've furnished it has made it cozy for the coming cold days, and all the plants make it an indoor garden to enjoy during winter. Your mother was right about changes! Best regards, -Beth

Love your new seat by the window perfect for a good read and afternoon tea. I am the same as you always changing things. Life would be boring otherwise.

What a cozy place to just be. Love it. It is always so lovely. It's no wonder people love to stay there. Keep changing it up, it's good for the soul:)

Easy to see why this would be a favorite spot for reading or enjoying tea. It is beautiful. The tea pot is gorgeous. I like how you have brought a touch of the outdoors indoors. I am wondering whether you do anything to the plants before bringing them in (like spraying for bugs or gradually getting them used to the indoor temps)?

Perfectly delightful spot. I could sit and enjoy some leisure time just fine here.
It was a rainy day here too, but we were cozy and dry on our sun porch listening to the rain.

Nothing like a trip around "the bay" as we say here in Newfoundland, Carolyn! Kudos to Andrew on his choice! I'm impressed! lol Happy Halloween to all the grandchildren! Be warm and safe on your trick or treating travels. BTW, I can't imagine that you would have brought home a teapot from Maine! Haha I'll be hunting for one in a few weeks on my long-awaited adventure!!! Whoo hoo!
Luvs and hugs,

That window is just the most beautiful spot! I can see it is still very green for you. Must be turning chilly? Looks like you are all set for whatever comes!
