Tea in the Study


Join me for tea in my study please!
And why not?
I love sitting in my study with the
 toile draperies and tole trays.
Lets take a quick break and have a cookies and tea.
I bought these Limoges tea cups and desert plates
 at the local consignment shop.
 Pale aqua pinks, greens and gold
 in a hand painted floral design.
Ferns from the garden and a small bouquet dress the table.
My favorite purple teapot will do the honors.
A scalloped lace cloth came from the same shop.
My fair maiden in aqua was my grandmothers.
Thanks for joining me. 
Tea for Two.
In the Study.

  6. I LOVE this room! Those drapes (you made them, right?), those tole trays and THAT transferware teapot are all spectacular! I know you've shown it to me before...so pretty! I love how you've put it all together.
    I like the wall colors to. Is it more yellow or gold?
    I was thinking about you today. You have that report card somewhere on your sidebar noting the irony that you now make drapes for a living. I barely passed (I may have flunked) home ed in 7th grade. I still can't sew but I CAN glue gun! lol Anyway, for some reason I thought of that and started cracking up!

    Have a great night,

    Nancy

  8. So sunny and inviting! That in and of itself, draws you in and begs you to sit down and take a sip of tea and a nibble on your delish cookies! TFS!

  10. Toile...you said. My favorite word. Especially black or chocolate on white or cream...oh, it sends chills up my spine (: I love your study and the bright cheery feeling it evokes. Well done....so lovely. I know you enjoy it immensely (:

  11. Yes, my company made the toile drapes about 8 years ago. I first used them in my home office and had complementary wallpaper. Then they went to my son's apartment..and now they are back in my NH study. The walls are painted BM Weston Flax on top and Concord Ivory on the bottom. I thought the tole trays tied it all together! There is also a big wingchair in the study slipcovered in the toile pattern as well.
