Hello my friends!!!
*
Welcome to the 93rd run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend! Boy...ohhh boy...it's another one of those "lazy-dazy" weekends for me. I haven't done a thing and I feel like such a bum! Hehe! In "my" defence though...I have been fighting a terrible sinus infection...plus both of my ears are infected as well. I ended up on the Drs. front door step this past week and finally have some good meds to help me get over this crud. There really is sooo much that I want to be doing....and need to be doing!
*
Today for Sunday Favorites, I am revisiting a post entitled, "Tea in the Tea Rose Bedroom"...originally posted on March 1, 2010...about this same time last year. I can see that I was already in the "springtime" frame of mind when I posted this. We are still experiencing winter weather here in colorful Colorado....with a blanket of snow on the ground even as I type. I am sooo ready for warmer weather...and some of that beautiful spring green! Soon...hopefully soon!

Have a super Sunday, my friends!

Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria

When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!

I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!

Thank you!!!

My favorite post from: March 1, 2010

*
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 love how you put this room together--I remember this post from last year. It's good to see your pretty room again! And the tea tray.

Beth said...

Hi Chari, I remember your tea rose bedroom. It is so colorful and so very pretty. You truly do live creatively! I wanted to let you know that I decided to merge my two blogs into one. I will no longer post at Food As Art (you were my first follower there, and I thank you!) I will post at Beyond The Garden Gate http://beyondthegardengate-beth.blogspot.com Hope you will come over and follow me there. Have a great weekend, Chari.
Blessings, Beth

Yah! It worked! Chari, I can't tell you how long I've wanted to try joining in with you on Sundays but I was "skeered!" I figured it out...I think! :)

Oh what a lovely room this is. The colors are so soothing. I love your headboard treatment and all of YOUR perfect touches.

Mary Ellen said...

Chari never get tired of visiting your beautiful guest room!! One of these days I pray it will be to sleep in that beautiful bed and get some girl time in face to face!!

Hadn't heard of the new linky party! Sounds like fun!!

Hope all is well your way! Gosh have you had the wind up there? It was terrible today- my car literally got sandblasted!

Hi Chari,
I think that I missed this post first time around and I am so happy that you shared it with us again this week.
The bedroom is a delight, everything looks so pretty and I would love to be the lucky guest who got to stay in that lovely room.

Pretty bedroom!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Chari, Every time I see this bedroom, I start wondering if there is a way that I can get to Chari's house, so that I can stay in her Tea Rose bedroom. Everything is so beautiful, and it just looks like a wonderful place to relax - especially with that pretty tea tray you prepared. Thank you for hosting. laurie

On Crooked Creek said...

Chari,
My what a gorgeous room! I adore the hues of pink and green together and accented with white! I've really been looking at bedroom design and decor, as it's time to do something with our Master Bedroom, but what? I appreciate this lovely post for inspiration today, dear freind.
Fondly,
Pat

lvroftiques said...

Chari I've always loved this bedroom! So warm and inviting! Those pink vanity jars are the bomb! And I have always loved that corona piece. Thanks for letting me hook up for the second time. I think I finally have enough posts to actually have an "old one" *winks* Vanna

Carolyn @ Adrift on the Lake said...

Wow! That is a gorgeous room! Such inspiration there! I have linked to you for the first time tonight with the beginning post of our guest house on a very new blog of my own. Thanks! Love your blog!
