Tea Time



The first sun tea of the year.
Making sun tea is a pleasure. First of all, it requires sun. And who doesn't enjoy a sunny day?




And what a more pleasant sunny place than a sunporch?




Maybe I should call it a tea room....




This is one of my favorite rooms in the house. I love looking at all the old beadboard, and watching the cats sun themselves. The old glass is wavy, the colors of the paint are vintage, the whole thing a bit chippy.
What's not to love about this room?




Our sunroom. Sun tea in an old canning jar. A sunny day. Wonderful things!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Join me as I visit Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday, Laurie for Saturday Favorites, Cielo for Show off Your Cottage Monday!

I wish I could sit in your tea room (sun porch) with you. Later in the season, do you grow mint for your tea? What a beautiful place to enjoy nature and read a book or watch the cats sun themselves. Enjoy!

One of the things I most miss about my former home is the sun porch. Yours looks great and I know that I'd love spending time there. Now how do you make that sun tea? Just slap a few tea bags in a glass gallon jug?

Perfect! A sunny room and tea! I wish we had a sun room, we don't so I follow it around and watch it cascade through different windows around the house.

I am trying not to covet this fabulous room!!!!

Debbie said...

We're huge sun tea drinkers too. We like to make this great raspberry tea in the sun the best. Sometimes, we mix it with lemondade and call it Lemotea. It's delicious.

And I will try not to covet my board friend's sun room/tea room.

Love your sunroom. I have one, too, but not for much longer. The new house doesn't have one, so I'm enjoying the one I have as much as possible. I'm a new follower & hope you might visit my blog & follow back if it looks interesting to you.

I'm so happy to live in a sunny place. But I feel your joy! I don't think I would do well without it.

How lovely! I'm so glad I found you at Show Off Your Cottage Monday.

Have a lovely week :O)

Mary said...

It is hard to believe that it is time for sun tea. Our weather is mighty gray today, so it will be a while for us. I'd love to have a glass of it. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Hi Carol,
Your sunroom (or tearoom) is beautiful. Your old house is so wonderful, I love seeing it. I especially enjoy seeing your kitchen, your sink is what I wanted when we redid our kitchen, but I could not find one in our area. It would have taken an 8 hour trip to the US or 6 - 8 weeks to order one. So I went with a white ceramic sink, I'm not crazy about it though, unfortunately.
Hugs, Cindy
