CHRISTMAS IN THE DOWNSTAIRS TEA ROOM


Before we go down to the tea room
let me greet you with this
outdoor "Noel"!


And share some toile pillows I sewed
last Saturday from an old raspberry
 colored toile tablecloth.


And now we go downstairs:


Miss Snow Lady is patiently
waiting for me to set up a
special table for her!






I try to be serious but whimsy
always seems to win out!






Right now there are a few projects
taking place in the tea room....

I want a tea room to decorate! Love yours. That vintage sideboard always makes me want to look for one, but I don't have any place for it. Looking forward to the rest of your decorations this year.

Your tea room is so pretty! I love all the Christmas decorations. I admire people who layer and layer things....I just never seem to get there. Is your sideboard pink? I want to paint my kitchen chairs pink. Wouldn't that be fun?

Very lovely. Wondering where you found that white tree? Everytime I see toile I remember a favorite dress I had when I got married. It was a gold toile silk, very pretty. Love your raspberry toile too.

Oh, how very lovely! All of your winter white tea wares and decorations are just so charming. They get me in the mood to celebrate Christmas, and yet they can ease right on into January too!
