What more can I say?! An entire room in my new home dedicated to tea & sewing parties!!! What could be better! I found some great second hand items such as this wonderful gingham chair...
Above the fireplace I am finally going to frame this fantastic print called "Night Flowers" by Claire Robertson of LoobyLu. I bought it when my daughter Claire (the name is pure coincidence) was born 5-1/2 years ago. Her blog was the first I ever read and was truly an inspiration to me.
Now all I need are some drop-leaf tables to transform my Tea Room into an instant sewing room. I found this table second hand and will be bringing it home on the weekend! I think it will be perfect and I am planning to eventually get two for the Tea Room.
I have been a major slacker on the internet in the last few months. I seem to go through a period every year when I need a break. Thank you all for your e-mails of concern but really I am fine and just being lazy and focusing on other things like gardening and setting up home.
Even during my breaks, I never stop being inspired by my crafty friends across the seas. My friend Sonia of Cozy Memories in France made these fabulous sketchbooks for me. I adore them so much that they sit on my computer shelf now where I can stare at them for hours! Thank you Sonia. You are the first person I spy on when I visit flickr and blogland :o)
I had my new quilty neighbour Janet over on monday morning. I made these little tea party napkins with tea party fabric of which I managed to scoop up some more from an online shop. They turned out cute but next time I make them I will place the label so that when the napkins are folded they become little sleeping bags for the tea spoons :o)
