Tablescapes ~ Tea In The Reading Room

It was another fun and relaxing weekend for us.  We spent most of it at the Jersey Shore enjoying time with the family and helping with a few of the preparations for my sister-in-law's annual pig roast which will be held this coming Saturday.  We look forward to this annual event the entire year and this year it is even more exciting since the theme is Hawaii.  Lots of color, tasty food and fun activities.   I can't wait...  I'll try to remember to take a few photos to share.

But Today, I am sharing a few photos of a sweet and feminine tea setting that I recently put together in my reading room.  This is my little private space.  It is where I often go to when I seek a bit of solitude and when I need to unwind.

I just finished a little makeover of this room and  I am loving how everything turned out.  I will do a post of the makeover soon.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

Thanks for stopping by.  I always love reading your sweet and kind words.

Have a great week,
