Tea Cups and a Fireplace

 

 Still having problems with pictures so I've chosen some from a while ago.  Here are some tea cups that I have in the dining room.  DH built both cupboards.




 I'm sure you all know how much I like sitting on my swing on the enclosed back porch. I'm always sorry when it gets too cold for comfort out there so  I had the idea of lengthening the season by at least a month in Spring and also in Fall by getting a little electric fireplace. Found this one very lightly used and reasonably priced.  It will fit perfectly in the one available spot which just happens to be where an outlet is.


Our weather is quite cool and there's a chance of showers every day.  I took advantage of the cool and did some transplanting today.  Youngest son came to give the front landing and stairs a fresh coat of paint. DH rigged up a tarp over the area in case it rains. The paint dries so quickly that I'm sure all will be well.

So that's about it for what's happening here. I hope you have a great weekend whatever your plans are.

Thanks for coming by,  GM

  2. I love your tea cup collection, and the cabinets your husband built are fantastic. Your electric wood stove will add charm and warmth to your porch and make it more enjoyable for more months of the year.

  4. Your husband did a beautiful job on those cupboards.
    We had a lot of rain today. It finally stopped about 5:00. Hoping for dry tomorrow for our grad party.

  10. I'd really enjoy a closed-in porch. Love the cupboards your DH made...he has quite a talent. And to exhibit your collection is ideal.

  12. I have been wanting a litle electric fireplace for my husband's room, too. He is often chilled. The teacups and the COLOR of the cupboards I just love! And what I call "beaded board" in them, just beautiful! I hope the painting by your son went well and dried quick as a wink! Here's hoping Blogger will behave or a workaround will be found. I have gotten a lot of help on the Blogger help forums.

  14. I've seen those little electric fires for sale in the hardware shops - so much more romantic than a plain ordinary heater!
    I hope you get the photo problem sorted out soon, it must be so frustrating for you.
    Have a great weekend, Mxx

  15. Dit kan je nou met recht pronkkasten noemen.
    Goed opgeborgen maar niet aan het oog onttrokken.

    Lieve groet,
