A Cosy Autumn Tea

Welcome October!

We have had some beautiful autumn days lately and so it is lovely to be outdoors
soaking up some sunshine and enjoying the fall colors that are appearing more
and more each day.

                            I have a cosy place for my autumn tea out on the veranda. This chaise
                          came from The Bay several years ago and it is a very comfortable place to enjoy
                          a book and a cup of tea. If you linger until it gets cool you can snuggle in with
                          a wool plaid throw or two.The wooden bucket on the floor came from the
                          70 mile yard sale this year ~ $8.
                              The needlepoint pillow was another find there this year ~ $4.
                          The pretty chintz tea cup was last years find at the yard sale.
                                   I think I could have a nap right here!

                   Hope you have a wonderful day!

                            Today I am joining:
                             Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday

                                Thank you for visiting,

Your chaise does look like a great place for a nap, with those nice wool plaid throws, etc., although I might be tempted to go through your garden looking for some of those pretty hydrangeas first.
