A Peaceful Afternoon Tea

                                                                  Hello everyone,
                                    We are still enjoying beautiful sunny days and it is such
                                    a treat to be outdoors working in the garden.However, after
                                   a good stretch of working in it I was happy to enjoy a lazy
                                   Sunday afternoon in the boathouse.
                                                               It is so peaceful and feels like
                                                               a little hideaway.
                                                            Perfect for enjoying my
                                                           favorite magazines and
                                                           a cup of tea.
                                                           Some pretty tulips on the

                                         My new pillows that I made from Cath Kidston fabric
                                         made it to the boathouse too.

                              One of these nights I am going to sleep in here again!

                                              I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time
                                              Tuesday and Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for
                                              Tea in the Garden,

                                              Hope you have a lovely day!

                                                                                Thank you for visiting,

The boat house is looking lovely in Robin's Egg Blue and rose. All your pillows are so wonderful and so glad you shared at Tea In The Garden! I imagine your garden is bursting forth now with happy surprises.

The boat house looks like a wonderful, comfy place to get away from it all for a brief time. Perfect place for tea, a nap and a good read. Happy Tea Day!

Oh, Carolyn...May I rent your boat house for a couple of months, while I work on the sequel to my memoir?! I could REALLY relax AND work there!! :)

You've created a cozy corner in the boathouse. If I were to lay back with a magazine, my head would be nodding in no time. It's nice that you have an extra room for family or guests when they stay.
