Casual Saturday




               Happy Weekend!

     I hope you are enjoying your
       weekend. It is a mild one here
for January.
           We are still painting and working
           on the guest room project so just
          a casual hot cocoa break today.


I have a small collection of
old enamelware in a few
different colors.


I enjoy my cocoa best with
   whipped cream and a sprinkle
of cinnamon



I am always delighted to have
our local Vanco tulips hit the 
stores as it adds some early
spring cheer.




I love this book put out by
Victoria magazine.

Faded beauties

                                                I hope you enjoy the rest of your
                                                          weekend!
                                                           I am joining Tea with Friends
                                                           at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog.
                                                           today.

                                                                            Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                           Carolyn

Transferware Tea in the Sunroom




Hello everyone,

 I hope you are having a great
week. I have been  working at
          my sewing machine the last couple
                 of days. I have discovered that slipcovers
              are not easy to make but I persevere!


At the thrift shop I found a few
brown and white transferware
pieces that match some of what
I already had and love.


I had the teapot for awhile so I was
happy to find the cream and sugar
bowl that matched it.

So on a nice sunny January day
it is lovely to take a tea break
in the upstair  sunroom.

My teacups co ordinate nicely
with the teapot.

                                                                             
                                                                        Old fashioned sugar cookies
                                                                        are a favorite here.




                      Sunshine streaming in is so cheerful.


Tea time.


                                             I hope you are enjoying some warm
                                                        and cozy tea times at your house too!

                                                                  Thank you for visiting me!
