Welcome to My Reading Corner

As the day ends, I can curl up in my reading corner
and enjoy a good book with a spot of tea. (Earl Grey is a favorite.)
Welcome to my reading corner in the corner of my bedroom.
I adore pink and I love, love, love my pink jacquard chair!
 I had it custom made originally for my living room in a previous home.
It has now made its way into my current bedroom.
This tole painted little table I found many moons ago at
an antique store.  I can't even remember where.  It has
the prettiest hand-painted pink roses on it with a gold trim.
And, it folds up when I need it out of the way.  
How cool is that? Yep, I just love it! 
For my spot of tea tonight I have chosen a Pink Dogwood
Depression Glass cup and saucer made by the MacBeth-Evans
Glass Company from 1929-1932.  If you look carefully, you can
see the dogwood flowers circling the cup and the saucer.
On top of my lamp shade I have a pineapple finial that I found
at Lowe's.  I just replaced the one that came with the lamp.  
Lowe's has many to choose from but I like using
pineapples in my home because pineapples are a symbol of hospitality.
The iron plant stand I found at a local nursery and the fake 
like-real plants came from Ikea.
My current read was recommended by a dear friend and fellow foodie.
It is The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry.

Thank you for joining me in my reading corner but, if you will
excuse me, I'm going to start reading before my tea gets cold! 

I'm thrilled to be joining some new linky parties this week.
Please join me at:

Have a great week!
