Red Transferware Tea




    Hello everyone,

  It is a beautiful sunny winter day
 here. So far, our winter has been
   milder than usual and the days are
getting longer already.

                                                                      Today, I am sharing a
                                                                       sunroom tea using red
                                                                       transferware and tartans
                                                                       again.
                                                       


This little Scottish doll fits right
in...thank you, Patricia!



                                                                A comfy old chair covered with an
                                                                old vintage bedspread is a perfect
                                                                spot to relax and enjoy your tea.
                                                                The tartan throw in the basket
                                                                 came from my husband's Scottish
                                                                 grandfather.
                                                             
                                                                       You can see it was a snowy day
                                                                        outside.

                                                                   The view below was shot
                                                                    through the sun room window.

                                                     
                                                            I will be back in a day or two with
                                                            some of my favorite tea time photos
                                                            from last year and then my favorite
                                                            garden photos.......it is always fun to
                                                            look back over the past year.

                                                                        Hope you have a lovely day!

                                                                                                   Carolyn

What a cozy, warm table! I love all the tartans you used, and of course, the transferware.

Tartans are again fashionable. They fit well with the red transferware. Your touch of artistic design is just perfect. All is beautifully set up.
The view from your sunroom makes me want to sketch the little house. Helene

I always enjoy seeing your red transferware. I had to smile when I saw the doll in your post because my next post will also have a doll in it. I'm working on that post now. It was a beautiful day today. Wouldn't it be lovely if our whole winter was like this? I probably wouldn't mind it quite as much if it was mild and sunny most days. I guess that's asking a lot here on the east coast though. Enjoy the rest of your week, Carolyn.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your collection of red transferware is just lovely. The tartan and transferware really complement one another. The entire setting looks so magical especially since snow never comes our way. Happy New Year!
