Sun Room TableTop Tuesday!!

As I said last week, I recently moved, I am having fun creating spaces just
for me, I was married 19 yrs and always had my girls living with me, they are
off on there own now and Mom is trying to find a life on her own.
Hence my new Sun Room. If you all remember I raise orchids and in Florida that
was not much of a challenge but since I moved to Charleston to be closer to my
youngest daughter, I have taken to Charleston but my orchids are not quite sure.
The summer months are fine for orchid growing but in the winter I must bring them
inside and recreate the rain forest indoors. So in this new Carriage House of mine
I have planned a made a room just for them I have called the Sun Room. It is filled
with pieces I love the stained glass window my dad made, my garden wellies, a darling tic, tac, toe piece I found at the Biltmore Garden Shoppe years ago, (see the little
frogs and dragon flies are the xx's and oo'x) some topiaries and bird's nests. As well as the most important feature my terrarium ( I found at Marshall's, I got a
great deal on it) I use it as my orchid Hospital, for those little failing orchid's
that need some TLC)
I hope you've enjoyed our Tabletop Tuesday, thanks to Marty at A Stroll Through Life
for hosting again.....until next week.

    My grandparents were from the UK. I have always wanted to go for a visit but sigh....not yet. I am so enjoying your adventures and pictures. Thank you.

  3. What a beautiful little nook you've created. I love that terrarium, and especially the stained glass.

  4. What a cute sunny space. Love your tablecloth, boots, and stained glass. I love Charleston--hubby and I go there a few times each year for romance and for the Whole Foods store there! I wish we lived a little closer! We live 2 hours North. Have a nice day...it is hot here!
