A Toolbox Tea

It's a cloudy and quiet morning in my studio.  The soundtrack from the movie 
Miss Potter is playing in the background.  I packed up my toolbox with a 
little teapot, a favorite cup and saucer and some daisies and carried it 
back from the kitchen to my studio to begin a day of work.

I set it on my chair and it looked so cute I thought I would share a few
pics of it with you.  Bentley is still outside exploring his garden after
last night's rain.  As soon as I let him back inside he will insist that I
remove this tool box immediately because after all he has claimed 
this chair for his own and must take a morning nap there while I am
working at my desk.

Bentley is very particular about his schedule and does not like to have it
interrupted by my decorating whims.  And he is so sweet, how can I refuse?

I just heard his woof at the porch door.  One last pic before the little
peanut returns for his cozy morning nap.

Bentley came in and jumped right into his chair.  I wonder if he
guessed that it was occupied while he was gone ???

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Too cute in every way.

    I do hope Bentley allowed you to finish your tea? : - )

    Have a wonderful day, Susan!

  2. I love old tool boxes. I've picked up a couple in the last few years. Your setting is perfect for an early morning read.

  13. The tool box is adorable. Love the pictures you have taken of it. I understand completely how your little feller is. My two little Terrorists (that is what I call them) are the same. They rule my home. Have a wonderful weekend. Karie
