A Sun Room Tea

Hello everyone,
      It was a sunny but still cool day here today -the perfect day to enjoy a little quiet time in the sunroom.
The wicker rocker got a fresh coat of paint and I made a new rosebud pillow to go on it.
I love the pink,green and white mix in this hydrangea.
Some sugar coolies on a vintage plate.
More vintage china.
 A pretty bouquet.
More dainty rosebuds.

Sweet little fairies sitting on the windowsill.

Well ,it was nice to relax in the sun room for a  tea break on a sunny day-don't you think?

My daughter and I just got home from the gym- the rush is on to make sure I fit back into my summer clothes before the weather warms up!!! I always love getting out my summer clothes after the more drab colors of winter.

Today,I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday , Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage and Show and Tell at My Romantic Home.

I could get used to having my tea time in that incredibly feminine beautiful porch setting.

The mood was perfect, thank you, Carolyn.

And you will fit into those clothes with all that ice skating you did this winter! You are always on the go!

Susan said...

Nothing like pretty pinks to catch my eye. Love your layers of rose china. And the angel is just the preverbal icing on the cake.

Hello Carolyn
I would love to have tea with you on the sun porch some time, it's so feminine and cozy.
Your sugar cookies get a lot of mileage like mine, make them and use for a couple of posts.
I hope you have better luck whittling down to fit in your summer clothes but I'm working hard at it too!
We actually saw a few snowflakes dancing on the wind today.

That Sun Room brings pure joy!

This is a post to my heart Carolyn, with the floral cups & plates. I think we will have quite a collection of china when we put it all together :-)

The chair looks lovely and so does your new pillow.

Have a lovely weekend,

I hope I'm able to comment this time, I tried twice this morning and something was wrong.
I love your pretty pink china, so lovely. Your sunroom is gorgeous!
Hugs, Cindy

How I long for a sunroom! My husband and I were just discussing it yesterday. White with soft pops of color would be my choice, just like yours. I love it all, Carolyn.

I hope your gym workouts are going better than mine! Two months and I haven't lost an ounce : /
