Just a place to curl up awhile with a good book...maybe a nap. The wind blew all day long today..sometimes it seemed the roof would come off. Today is Tablescape Thursday...and Etsy is having a blue day..and though I don't sell anything, I now and then buy some treasure of theirs. is my blue. I never have the nerve to enter on the Tablescape page...and this is not a tablescape. This is a bedtray scape? Ok?

This is my guest room. A quiet little place to hideaway. Today..I was the guest for awhile...

Tea with my favorite creamer..a delicious buttered begal and fresh strawberries and green grapes. Oh...and Mr. Jeremy Fisher for company.

I stayed in my jammies all day long..yes I did. The wind blew and I read my book. It was wonderful.
Later I went shopping on Etsy and broused online bookstores..played the piano..and of course took pictures.

This is my practice tablescape. I thought I would start know? No napkins and no this was easy...but...

I didn't forget fresh flowers ...
I just don't think I am into tablescapes. There are just too many to go look at and enjoy. Just this itty bitty one took time and I didn't have this..and I didn't have that..and...naw..I'll leave it to's more fun to look. At least for now. to Friday...OH NO!!! Can I use this for Foodie Friday too???

Hugs and all that... :)

  5. Your guest room is so warm and inviiting. The breakfast tray looks so yummy. It is good to see that you pamper yourself. So often, we do not take the time and trouble to spoil ourselves with beauty and that extra touch. uh, ahem, if you ever want company, I'll be glad to stay in that room. Smiles & Hugs, Kathleen

  6. Good Morning Sweet Friend,

    I love your hideaway and boy what I wouldn't give to have a day in my jammies with a good book and a cup of tea :)


  7. I LOVE to take a day and spend it in my pajamas! It's so relaxing and a special treat to myself. Looks like you did good for yourself Mona, great job!

    P.S. Who wrote The Shack? Is it good? May want to get it.

  8. I want to be a guest in that beautiful room!!!
    soooo pretty!!!

  9. Love all your special touches. You have so many pretties. A day in your jammies is a great idea.

  10. When I REALLY want to get things done or totally relax, I have a "stay in pjs" day.
    Loved your tablescape and your guestroom!

  11. Oh Mona! Don't eat it all and make some room for me...I'm coming over!!!
    It looks so inviting, so relaxing!
    Beautiful trayscape!!!! Love it!
    Thank you for playing with us today!

  12. Good girl. Wasn't that a nice day? I'm loving the little pink table and chairs . . . what room are they in?
    I am kinda nervous about doing a Tablescape Thursday too! I am a self-proclaimed dishaholic and I love to set a gorgeous table, but . . . I don't know - I just don't have the time to get it all out, set it all up and them put it all away. Maybe someday. Yesterday would've been a good day, but workers here all day. The wind blew and blew here too! It was a gorgeous day to do nothing!
    HAGD! Karen

  13. Morning Dear Mona! Oh, I love this! Yes, yes! You should go right now and take this to Susan's blog and enter into Tablescape Thursday! This is adorable! We have lots of 'scapes' that aren't exactly on the table. Bed tablescapes and ottoman scapes!! Please please!! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Hi Mona,

  17. Gorgeous, gorgeous! I love all of the "blue"wear and you sure had a better breakfast than I did! A beautiful room, thanks for showing us.

  18. Oh Mona, your "bed tray scape" is lovely! I think it would be a big hit on TT. I LOVE those blue willow dishes! And gosh, the thought of staying in my jammies all day is SO appealing! ;)

  19. Really adorable that you have matching tea sets for the babies too! You really know how to add charm to any room in the house Mona! Great photos of "your" tablescape. Don't feel bad...I have ONE set of good china I inherited mostly because my house is so small I would have no place to store it!

  20. Oh Mona, how cute!!! I love the pink table all set for a tea party!

  21. Why didn't you tell me we were suppose to stay in bed with our cuppa tea? I missed it! :-(

  22. Mona, it's fabulous! Its so inviting!! And spendig the day in your pj's is such a treat. Sounds like a perfect day to me.

    Your friend, Marcia

  26. How inviting. I haven't been in the group long, but can I stop by?

  27. The depth of your talent never ceases to amaze me. You're awesome!

    I tagged you for a little fun over at my place.

  28. What a lovely cosy place and how wonderfy that you create all those cosy nooks in your house.
    Thanks for sharing and for your comment. My husband also died of lungcancer in winter. Ten years ago, half a score of years, was our last spring together. His birthday was also in April. He died on 9th of November 1999.

  29. Dearest Mona,
    I imagine you in your pyjamas having a wonderful time photo shooting your tablescape version. To be honest, your mini version is really cute. The dolls are so lovely as well as the miniatute chinas.
    While the blue china tea sets in your guest room are lovely. And you made me envy.. I wish I could have some fun time like that this time of the day. Hope that you continue to have a lovely day this Friday my friend.

  30. That was such a sweet comment you left. Thanks so much. What an original idea for a bed tray tablescape. I love it. I noticed the book beside it is The Shack. I read it in one night. It was so good. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Have a wonderful Friday!!

  31. So happy you stopped by BellaDella. I am so excited to find your blog too. I promise to come back when I have more time to look around. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!


  32. Love it! The blue and white dishes
    and the dolls are so sweet!

  33. You are so cute... I've done the jammie thing all day before, with a good book, while it's raining or otherwise nasty weather outside. Those are snuggly days, and quite fun! I've read the Shack also... a good read. Different. Let me know what you think...

    And have a fantastic weekend!! :)

  34. oh, i just remembered ...i think my first foodie friday was a Breakfast in Bed...
    Hope your weekend is good...
