Christmas Respite



                                                    Hello everyone,
      I hope you are can take some time today to curl up with a good book or your favorite magazine and enjoy a little repite from all the business of the season.
                                            Enjoy a cup of holiday tea.
                                 With candlelight and a full pot of tea.

                                         Some pretty natural greens and berries.

In a cosy little nook.

                   Some outdoor vignettes from our garden etc. on a beautiful snow day the first of the week.
      I am off to a holiday Jubilee Tea at Beaconsfield carriage house at 5 p.m. tonight and you are invited to come as it is open to all. Maybe,I will see you there!

I am joining Bernideen's Tea Time Blog today , Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage and Vintage Inspiration at Common Ground.

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

Your respite was visually exactly what I needed....getting set for company in about an hour and teatime came and went with not a single moment to stop and sip!

Your snow looks so pretty- hoping you have a really white Christmas this year!

Your holiday tea you are attending tonight sounds absolutely heavenly - can't wait to read all about it. Wish I were there.

Hugs.

What a lovely transferware pattern, Carolyn, and you match the bed perfectly! : ) Your outdoor shots are beautiful. Snow in our forecast for tomorrow night but I don't think it will amount to much. It will be nice to see before it all melts though.

Carolyn thanks so much for joining us last night at Beaconsfield. I hope you had a chance to chat with the Lt Governor and his wife, they are lovely people. Although the tea and sweets were no where near what you serve I do hope you enjoyed them. The carriage house is so lovely with it's few decorations.
Looking forward to getting together again in the new year. Your blog photos take me back to the peaceful serenity of your home.

Carolyn said...

Hi Maple,
I really enjoyed the evening-the carriage house is beautiful and the food company and music were all lovely.
Hope to see you soon and Merry Christmas!
Carolyn
