304: Tea for Two…..

July 30th, 2011

This is what I have been working on the last couple weeks, and I am so happy to say that I am done….I had started finishing this “teahouse” for Linda and Mimi last year, but when Linda broke her leg last summer, well it just fell to the wayside.  Lousy weather for most of this year just made it that much harder for me to get out there…It still needs the trim painted…likely with leftovers from the house painting we ‘re planning.  Linda wants to have Mimi paint the door with all the sample pots I have been picking out.   I am up to seven so far I think….

        

Linda has already improve the interior from these first shots….we hope to use it not just for a “folly” but also for photo shoots for our designs in the future…

      

It’s Saturday as I type….the end of my summer holiday has come too soon.  I am spending the rest of today working on my Fat Quarterly quilts that I started last winter? just for fun, writing some patterns, and then tonite out to Chinese,  and then an outdoor movie showing of Rio in the park sponsored by our church.   It’s Mimi’s Birthday today and it was Linda’s yesterday…they are headed back home from the doll museum....

Pretty  much a Blow-by-Blow of recent days…not super eloquent here today….just the events…

Hope you enjoyed the pics…I am pretty happy with the overall looks of how it came out…imperfections and all

    I’ve always wanted to build a little house! It’s so adorable and you did a great job on it!

    I am in love with the tea house and am so jealous. It is something that I have wanted for a long time. I think everyone needs their own space to go read, sew, crochet, nap, whatever they want. Thanks for sharing.

    Reminds me of Michael Pollan’s A Place of My Own... his little house to write in (or have tea). It is a great read (link below)...

    love the tea house.

    I hope that your daughter’s finger is well healed. How scary that must have been.

    Adorable kid’s chalet, I would have loved this as a kid, as I’m sure your daughter does!

    See the whole thing is, my wife wanted this done with my daughter so that SHE can enjoy it long after my daughter moves on her way with her own life…I think it will be a very special place from now on for all of us….very happy with how it turned out!
