Sunday was a rainy day on the prairie. We've not seen many rainy days this summer. Beginning in June, moisture has been practically non-existent this summer except, perhaps, for a 10 minute downpour. And that only two or three times.
Sunday (and Saturday) rain came. Not a 10 minute thunderstorm but a nice drizzly afternoon of rain.
Alas, not being able to work in the garden, I decided to take a tray to the Master Bedroom and relax with a book.
|The chaise in the master bedroom.|
The chaise -- bought just for such afternoons. A perfect place to stretch out, have a cup of tea and read a book!
|Two pillows -- one is from the original fabric on the chaise. A reminder of what was. But we like the beige velvet much better!|
The tea tray -- with pot and cup and saucer and a compote of cookies and a book, a favorite -- rainy days call for favorite books -- Elizabeth and Her German Garden.
|Cookies on the floor can sometimes be corgi fodder.|
Alas to read, the tea tray goes on the floor. And if there are any cookies . . . . the corgis believe that food on the floor belongs to corgis!
|A simple tray for one!|
A vintage linen napkin covers the tea tray (mother always said that a tray needed a tray cloth) and it's an Asiatic Pheasant type of day -- a wee tea pot, cup and saucer and a cute compete -- just right for three cookies. Alas, not made by me but from Trader Joe's -- lemon hearts! (It was a busy week at Linderhof and tea cooky baking did not get done!)
It is Tuesday -- and Rainy Days and Sundays is being shared with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday!
I can't think of a nicer way to spend a rainy afternoon. That would suit me perfectly!(and Rory would appreciate a cookie or too as well!)
Lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon, that chaise looks so comfortable.
What a lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon; tea and cookies and a good book! Love your pretty china. Thanks for joining me for tea and have a beautiful day.
I think you just described the perfect rainy afternoon! lol.
What a sweet spot to relax!
Corgi fodder...too cute! YES, dear friend the rain on the Prairie was such a refreshing blessing, indeed!!! I sat by the patio door for a long while that day and just listened and watched the heavenly rain fall. It was breathtaking!
It looks so cozy. Wonderful for a rainy afternoon. Wondering how you had Cass for tree because she lives quite a distance from you, right? :-)
What a fun rainy day indeed!
A perfect afternoon looking so relaxing. I am glad you made the most of the rainy day. Your chaise is so pretty...Christine
Your idea for a rainy day is much the same as mine except I recline on a lazy boy chair in the living room. I think your chaise looks like a more cosy place though and no matter where, my dog thinks one of the biscuits should be for him.
Love your reading spot, so cozy. Of course being married to a German citizen, I also have that book! =)
Really like that you saved some of the old chaise fabric for a pillow. Great idea. I think I'll do the same with a sweet little loveseat from the 50's that I bought...it has a pretty pink chinnoisserie pattern, but it's torn in a couple spots and doesn't really go with anything...but a bolster in the pink fabric would go in my daughter's room! Hope you've been enjoying the rain today. I'm assuming you're getting the same drizzle down south of us?
