Tea in the Tea Rose Bedroom...

*

*
Hello my friends...I'm so happy that you could come by for a visit today!
*
I will be serving tea today in my Tea Rose bedroom...won't you join me?
*
*
Tea in the Tea Rose Bedroom...

*
Ohhh my...it's snowing at my place today! I am so ready for Spring! I thought it would be nice to spend a little time in my Tea Rose Bedroom...it's such a sunny, cheerful room! It's the perfect room for chasing away the winter doldrums!!!
*
I have prepared a tea tray...would you care for a hot cup of rose tea?
*
Let me show you around the Tea Rose Bedroom while you're sipping your tea!
*
*
The Tea Rose Bedroom

*
This is the Tea Rose bedroom. It is my step-daughter's bedroom while she is here with us and it also serves as our guestroom! I took these photos very early in the morning...just as the sun was beginning to shine into the room!
*

*
This is a fairly small room...but very cozy and comfortable! The morning sunlight always shines so sweetly into the room...spilling upon the bed! It's like getting a "good morning kiss" from the sun!!!
*
We have tried to provide everything that our guests may have need of...a warm, comfortable bed...a writing desk for correspondence...and a cozy rocking chair to catch up on a little reading or maybe to just enjoy a warm cup of tea!!!
*

*
The bed linens are called "Tea Rose"...and thus the name for this room! I purchased this beautiful Tea Rose bedding a few years ago from JC Penneys and have been very pleased with it! I love the colors...the soft pinks and buttery yellows, and the sagey greens...all on a background of creamy white! I also really like the mix of fabric patterns in this bedding...love the florals mixed with the stripes! It's very indicitive of the English Country decor style....which I love!
*

*
A close-up of the linens...
*

*
I just love how I was able to catch the sun shining in upon the bed...so pretty!
*
I love, love, LOVE pillows! Again, a mix of floral fabric patterns can be seen on the decorative pillows!
*

*
A small writing desk...just the place to sit and catch up on your correspondence!
*
A Tea Rose Bedroom Vignette...
*
I placed a frosted Victorian hanging vase filled with pink roses, yellow and white flowers on the left hand side of the desk...along with my late mother-in-law's set of three pink glass vanity jars! I think they look so pretty here! On the right hand side of the desk is my little teacup lamp that my dearest friend, Gloria from Happy To Be...made for me! It's sooo perfect for my Tea Rose room!!! Sweet little bunnies have made their way into this vignette as well!
*

*

*
I just love these beautiful pink vanity jars! I have searched high and low for information concerning these...to no avail! I think that the glass is so unique with the diamond tucking design! Ohhh...and look at the handles...sparkling glass cubes! They almost look like ice cubes!
*

*
A close-up of my beautiful teacup lamp and little bunnies!
*

*
I thought I would show you a few details of this writing desk. I refinished it...it was a medium wood tone before I painted it a creamy off-white color. I also added these pretty garlands of "roses and bows" to the drawer fronts....and clear glass knobs. I was very pleased with how it turned out!!!
*

*
I found this pretty chair at the antique flea market. I love the shabby chic "chippiness" of it! Love the style of the chair and the ornate carvings at the top of the back. Ohhh...and I love, love, LOVE the green and white toile fabric on the seat...sooo pretty!
*

*
A close-up of the detailing on the chair.
*

*
This sweet rocker was just $5 at a yard sale! Of course, I refinished it...painted it off-white and recovered it with a beautiful beige and olive green toile fabric that I found on sale.
*

*
Ohhh boy...a few more decorative pillows! I did mention that I love pillows...didn't I? Hehe! I found this beautiful throw at Hobby Lobby on sale for just $14...the pretty pink and green matches perfectly with the bed linens!
*
How about another cup of tea?
*

*
A Tea Rose...Tea Tray
*
This pretty white teapot is one of my newest treasure finds. I found it a TJ Maxx for just $9.99! I love the delicate porcelain roses that stand up off of the teapot! The white teacup and saucer is from one of my oldest sets of ironstone dishes. A lace edged napkin with a little silver teapot napkin ring sits along side the teacup. Ohhh yes...and we must have a pretty bouquet of flowers...don't you think? I used my lace charger plate to sit the teapot on...all sitting atop a silver tea tray!
*

*

*

*
Well my friends...I'm so happy that you came by for a little chat and cup of tea today! I hope that you enjoyed the Tea Rose bedroom...I enjoyed your company!!!
*
*
I am joining in with these fabulous parties today...
*

*

My oh my!.., I do believe I'm gonnna have to do a "happy dance"! ..,Why that's it!~ A; 'I'm happy to have visted Cheri @ Happy to Design'; "happy dance"!..,

Visiting your lovely blog is now getting more and more exciting!

How utterly "tea-lichously" lovely Chari; and as you know, I adore that bedroom!

'Upon my soul', your posts just get sweeter and sweeter, (yet I'm kinda biased with my love of tea, now aren't I)!..,(Wink)!..,

I now see what you mean when you shared that you bought a few tea cups and tea posts.~ Good for you; "you go girl"!!

I'm a little late with my, Tuesday Tea For Two, as I'm so tired lately; I know you are super busy as well.~ I don't know how you do it!!

I'll happily post for, Tuesday Tea For Two, (likely laterish tonight and showcase your lovelies with pleasure!..,

Mr. Linky; here I come!

(I made a list of all that I want to photograph and I'm slowly but surely learning the way around my new camera)..,

(Please don't expect too much initially as yet though , as I find they turn out 'too dark' and it's exhausting, yet fun however, to lighten each one)!.., (I'm trying different settings of course as well; I may just have to take a photography course or two).

Cheers

Chari,
That is the dreamiest room ever!
And I love the way you took the photos at just the right time of day.
It is so lovely.

I was so glad to see you over at my place. It has been along time. And same for me being here.
I agree: Blogland just keeps getting bigger. In addition, my time seems to be less and less.

Love all you did in the room, and hope you are ready for a wonderful Spring time. =-)

Blessings sweet friend

That is a beautiful room! Again that fabulous teapot! If I was a guest at your home, I do not think I could leave the comfort of the Tea Rose Bedroom! It is just that lovely and welcoming!

Cozy Little House said...

I am loving it all! The color of paint on the walls, the desk (so pretty in the detail you added), the chairs, the bedding, the teapot. All of it! I've been trying to do something with our guest bedroom. It's not hardly big enough for anything other than a bed. Love all of this! You should send this to a magazine.

O my! O my! O my! Your Rose Bedroom is simply divine. I would feel like a princess if I stayed in that lovely room. I love waking up to the sun shining in my window.

Thank you for your kind message. The delight and smiles you bring to each of us is beyond measure. Isn't it wonderful how God uses all things for good! I like to think my cracks add character. (you have inspired a new blog for me perhaps)

Enjoy a cup of tea in that comfy rocker!
Blessings,
Pam

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Chari...this is one of the pretties posts...one of the most interesting tabletop posts I've ever seen. I keep thinking how beautiful everyones posts are...but this. JUST lovely. You are amazing at decorating. Just amazing. You accomplish what I want so badly to accomplish. I love to look..I do...but I wish I could do it like that. It's such a relaxed and yet elegant look. Soft and sweet and just delightful.

Hi Chari.....

Oh my gosh.....I soooo agree. That beautiful room is a great way to chase away the cold, winter doldrums.

I'll send you my address ASAP so you get those pink vanity jars in the mail to me......I LOVE them! :-) I wish I had some information for you, but I've never seen anything like them. They are fabulous. So is your rose teapot.....I'll pop in for tea soon!

Thanks for coming and for your prayers. I so appreciate it. I think I am finally turning the corner. Things are improving and that's just great with me.

Big hugs sweet girlie!

In short she was possibly the most vile, repulsive, obnoxious, unintelligible, stupid and repugnant person I have ever met.and as a kid i once met Tory MP Kenneth Baker! This alone dos not justify Wayne's hitting of her, but it made it easier to live with. If you are born during the time of Anubis, you are clever, full of compassion, a bit of fatalist, slightly ambivalant or inhibited but deep.Colors: sienna (male), crimson (female) I have a baby shower tomorrow and wanted to give something useful, so I bought a big box of diapers.
