Christmas English Afternoon Tea



                                                                       Hello everyone,

                                                              I prepared a cozy English
                                                              Afternoon Tea for you to
                                                              enjoy in our library.
                                                                     Biscuits,sugar cookies,haystacks
                                                                      and sticky date pudding for you.

                                                                  Tea with the glow of twinkling
                                                                   lights on the Christmas tree.
                                                                      I love this teapot with the
                                                                       English cottage on it.

                                                              The curtains and the tablecloth
                                                              look like English chintz.
                                                                      The tree and the fireplace add
                                                                       a cozy Englisg charm for me.
                                        I hope you have some time to enjoy a
                                                   cozy English Afternoon Tea by the fire
                                                   today!
                                                                                 


                                                                    Today is Winter Solstice and it is
                                                                    beautiful winter day here on the Island.

                                                                    We woke up to a beautiful cover of
                                                                    soft fluffy white snow covering our
                                                                    little corner of the world. I took shots
                                                                    this morning......I am hoping it will last
                                                                    until Christmas but mild temps and rain
                                                                    are in the forecast.

                                                                                             Christmas Blessings,

                                                                                                                    Carolyn

You have such a beautiful taste to create a warm atmosphere and tea here in your library looks just perfect.
How lucky to have a bit a snow. Here, December has never been so warm. Unexpected and worrying.

I love your English tea. The treats look delightful. And what a gorgeous scene to wake up to. It truly looks like a winter wonderland. The temps will be in the 70's by us for Christmas Eve so there will not be a white Christmas this year.

Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas Carolyn.
