Linda's Tea Room



This room added to the front of our house was to be GJ's office/den. The floor plan changed when the wall between this room and the new family room had to be moved to become a support wall. The room picked up several more feet and GJ began to refer to it as "Linda's Tea Room."
Well, guess what?!? It became our personal tea room and, as we carried in tables and chairs, he informed me he "expects" me to serve tea at least once a month for friends, family and neighbors (of course, that includes he and AJ) in this special room! I told him not to start the time clock on my promise to serve monthly teas until everything is unpacked and the decorating is done in this room and the rest of the house is finished.
We look forward to having tea in this new room sometime this fall.

What a dream of a husband to give up his office space so you may have a tea room. Not many would do that.

I just love this, Linda! It looks like a tiny little tearoom you'd find tucked away on a side street in England! You'll have to get Bruce Richardson to create a "Linda's Blend" of tea! Have fun with this great space!

What a great idea to have a dedicated tea room. Hubby gets big stars for this selfish act of giving up this room. But I am sure he will just happen to be in the area of this room when the sweet smells of delicious tea treats are served.

Wow, I can certainly see what you were doing while I was on vacation last week! And I hope I'll be on your mailing list if "Linda's Tea Room" ever opens to the public!
