Take a break!


Hello everyone,
     I thought with all the hustle and bustle you might want to stop and relax for a bit in our little sunroom which was bright and cheery today with the sun shining. 

You might already know that I love this wooden angel.

I made a treat for you -it is delicious and so easy to make. Actually it is even good for you. It is peppermint chocolate Vitasoy organic  beverage. It is delicious hot or cold and a little whipped cream and cinnamon makes it all the better for a little afternoon treat.
I made some sugar cookies for you too!
You are surrounded by nature.
even reindeer.

A santa wreath

Some fresh pine and rosehips



I know ,I know enough already!

I love this iron sheep too.



A collage for you.



Above is a photo from my Christmas Past & Present blog if you would like to visit just click here.

I hope you enjoyed a little break- I know I did!

Thank you for visiting and for all your kind words.

Take care,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn, Your photos are always so special and full of substance it's like looking at your favorite magazine.

I really like your last photo with the candle lit house in the center of your table. very ornate! I don't believe I seen anything like that one before.

Hi Carolyn
I like the natural elements of your post today; gave me a break to enjoy those things again.
I was looking out your window too and saw green grass - we've got about a foot of snow already!
The wooden angel is lovely and I can see why you like it.

Carolyn,
Your sunroom is delightful! Love all the white.
And your Christmas Past and Present blog is such a treat! I think about it regularly. I wish I had it in a book format. I'd page through it leisurely every day!
Off to your other blog...

Carolyn, this is just what I needed. To come and spend some time with my friend in her beautiful home, on her beautiful porch, and eat all of her yummy goodies.
Just a perfectly beautiful time.
