My Cozy Tiny Tea Parlor

Hello and Welcome!  When at our little farm cottage this late summer and fall  I have been busy decorating my tiny storage shed into a cozy tiny tea parlor.





I papered the walls using my old Victoria magazines.  It has been so much fun   going through stacks of them and  picking out my favorite full page pictures!


















My chippy wire form gal in the corner used to be in the flower garden and now I have lots of space for my teacups on the rafters!














In the other corner my cement lady brought in from the garden to keep me company!





I found the colorful chandy at a antique mall for only $40.00!  Only problem  I have no electricity in the parlor!





Now would you like to join me for tea?








The teapot is a Cauldon-Vale, Staffordshire England.  A different darling design on each side!








The teacups and plates are American Limoges, Chateau-K, Minuet Pink.  A friend made the lovely tablecloth for me!








Tea time through the mirror!








Twinings Chi in the teapot and apple strudel pie for a sweet!











A lot going on in the tea parlor!  But it will not be short of  conversation during tea time!  :)


Thank you for stopping by today and I am hoping you are enjoying your Autumn!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Share Your Cup Thursday and Friends Sharing Tea.

Oh Nancy, what a delight to have your very own tea parlor! What a labor of love it was for you to wallpaper the walls with all those pretty pages. It just oozes charm and personality!! The chandelier is perfect, even without electricity, and room in the rafters is a bonus for pretty teacups. Your tea table is perfect and you even have company from the garden. Oh, how I'd love to join you for some chai tea and apple strudel pie in your pretty new space....such fun! Thank you for the tour!

What a wonderful transformation of your garden shed to a Tea Parlor. You really came up with so many ideas. The wallpapered walls are pretty. Your banner of flags are pretty too. My favorite is the window and lace curtains. Your table is beautifully set. Love the picture of the mirror reflecting your Tea Time Table. Thank you for sharing such a sweet post.

Dear Nancy:
What a delightful little cottage decorated to "take one away" to another time and place. Your special spot is wonderful where you can escape and dream. I could hardly take my eyes off your teapot! I love it.

Oh my - that is absolutely darling - so much to look at - I had to go through the photos three times. I love love love the pink tea cups you are serving tea in - I've never seen any like that - but if I ever do I am sure I'll buy some- they are delightful. Your teapot is wonderful - everything is just fabulous.

I never realized that I needed a tea parlor until I read this post. Now I want one for sure. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I just wanted you to know that you have inspired my blog post for tomorrow. :-)

I love your tea parlor! I would feel right at home in there as it is just my style!

Karen said...

Oh Nancy,
I want a tea parlor. Yours is gorgeous! I have seen some called "She-Sheds" but yours is much too elegant for that name. It really is a quaint little place to enjoy your tea time. Love the pink teacups and teapot. Blessings, Karen

Nancy, I am so envious (in the nicest sense of the word!) of your tiny tea parlor! How lovely. Your creativity shines through in every corner.

Nancy, what a darling little tea parlour you have created! I love your pretty teapot and the pink teacups are very sweet. Your tablecloth is lovely and your pie sure looks good. I love all the pretty touches you have added with your Victoria wallpaper pages and teacups in the rafters. Whether or not your chandy lights up, it brings a little sparkle into the parlour too and I just love the leaded glass window! Would love to join you for tea in there. Very cozy and girly. Wishing you a delightful weekend.

Hugs,
Sandi

Wow, Nancy have you ever created a cozy place to share tea with a friend. Love the window with lace curtains and the pink and purple used for accessories.

Oh my gosh it so cute and I love how you styled it. I don't think I'd want to leave so don't invite me over! Love the pink teacups! What a great spot to take refuge in!

Pamela M. Steiner said...

Oh how much fun that must have been to create! I LOVE your tiny tea cottage, and would love to sit and have a cup of tea with you there. Every detail is so perfectly thought through...I know you had a ball doing this. I would love to do something like that one of these days...you are an inspiration! Have a blessed and happy tea time!

Oh I love your tea cottage shed. And using the victorian magazine pages was so fun and original.
It reminds me of a little girls play house,now it is a grown up little girls tea palor.
Love all your items like the chandelier the mannequin and the girl statue. I would love to have tea with you out ther.
get some electricity run ot there so you can turn the chandelier on

Well, this is just adorable. What a unique way to decorate a potting shed. Deb

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

What a gorgeous tea pot and beautiful colors. I have a similar chafing dish but not as pretty as this. The whole setting is so pretty. If I lived close I'd head over for a cup or two!

CIELO said...

It looks beautiful... what kind of glue did you use for the magazine pages?
