I imagine I am not alone in saying that
I am very sad that with the Pandemic I
have not been able to use my downstairs
personal tearoom. This has been a big
disappointment as I am sure numerous
teas could have been history down here by now.
Up on top are some of
my collection of birdhouses:
Last year I divided this wall of shelving
into many little tea time vignettes
using various themes.
Then a shelf for Jane Austen with my Royal
Winton yellow chintz sold years ago by Victoria magazine. I used one of the shelves for Downton Abbey with
cookbooks and one of my decoupage clipboards along with a Spode
Duberry coffee pot, cream and sugar.
Then there are lots of other favorites
like Anne of Green Gables
and my collection of antique Bibles:
That is my Gideon Bible above given
to me in public elementary school in 1959.
Above of course - I made room for
Tasha Tudor two shelves up above!
The Titanic below is always a theme that
interested me. See the Titanic Salt and Pepper Shakers that split into?
the top left below and of
course I love Beatrix Potter
one of my what not shelves in the room:
A few tins and hat boxes on top feature
the art of Edith Holden from the
Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.
I certainly understand that this cottage
style isn't everyone's "Cup of Tea" as they say.
I personally do not like beads, feathers
or what is commonly referred to as
Frou Frou Victorian.
