IN THE GALLERY ROOM:  More to come  here. 

I love all things England and am always attracted to the beauty of their landscape and architecture, charm of tea and scones and Cotswald cottages, beauty and warmth of old Oxford style college grounds, not to mention Downton!  I have in mind to draw some landscapes with beautiful old stone bridges and cottages ,  homes lined with wonderful wrought iron fences , library rooms where the walls are lined with books, perhaps some pretty teacups and teapots as well…

.Ideas for this Ladies’ English Garden Tea: and Cottage Tearooms

  • Throw a Mother-Daughter [or… Auntie-Niece! 🙂 ] tea party for your young girl’s birthday and use note-sized cards of these prints as your placecards!  
  • Tuck smaller prints in and among books on shelves or add cosy charm to your living room, den or kitchen with a larger one or two
  • Gift a print to a fellow “lover of all things British”
  • Purchase in greeting card size to use as invites for a ladies luncheon, bridal shower etc.
  • Invite friends over for a British-Style Afternoon Tea and Hat party and use card size prints of these at your table settings… or set the mood with a larger print for your menu board
  • Deck out a child’s room with “story board illustrations” reminiscent of classic books and use them to create story time  of your own imagination as you view them together each day…

[Oh, I love this one.  Mm…I can almost feel myself walking with the figures there,  breathing in the salt air in this, possibly because it reminds me of  trips I’ve taken to Carmel, California as well as an English scene I’ve only read of in books…]

(Don’t you love this charming real life tearoom?  I can almost hear the bell on the door calling me to tea and crumpets, or scones with clotted cream…   🙂  I think this will be the first of many of England’s Tearooms I will be adding here… Just can’t get enough of these!  I used a combo of pen and ink, graphite pencil and pastel to achieve this soft look…)
