Farmhouse Tea Cabinet

Fall - the undressing of the beautiful trees that surround my farm charm cottage and the not forgotten 'Shabby Chic Tiny Retreat', (my 8x18 tiny house) here in the sweet Appalachian mountains. So many people delight in the splendor of observing the color changes that Fall ushers in. Me, not so much... I love hot sun drenched days where I can hike, walk, play and bake in the almost constant rays of wonderful sunshine where I am blessed to dwell. I love the heat of the day and spending warm summer evenings on the old farmhouse covered porch. Yet, I remain thankful that I am alive and able to embrace the weather patterns that undress the many species of trees that fill these Appalachian mountains, as well as the valleys that are neighbors to many rivers.

Accepting that cold and shorter days are just around the corner, I've put the fleece sheets back on my bed, pulled out my vintage quilts as well as a few new soup recipes that I want to try. I've also been gathering new Organic tea flavors to add to my Fall and winter tea collection. No doubt, they will pair up nicely with a warm cozy fire, candles and great reads.

I have a thing for vintage windows and it was love at first sight when I spotted this unique window that was laid to rest in a barn loft for many years. I had originally considered giving her a new life as a headboard but later decided that she would fit perfectly into this odd farmhouse nook. So here she is, in her new repurposed life as she proudly houses a variety of Organic seasonal teas and Organic local honey, vintage tea cups and other goodies that are part of sharing a cup of  tea with a friend.
                                                                               

This repurpurposed vintage window was hinged onto a homemade cabinet
                                                                 
                                                                     
This little cabinet used to be red. I painted it with AS chalk paint in French Linen and added crystal knobs, and numbers

Mason jars hold loose leaf teas and bagged teas fill the numbered drawers



Tiny baby boo pumpkins are a perfect addition to tiny spaces



Organic cinnamon tea is a Fall favorite in my home

                         As always... remember it is never ever too late to have a happy childhood.
