Teal Transferware & a Treat

                                                                     

                                                                     Hello everyone,

                                                        On this crisp sunny winter day,
                                                        I have a treat for you.
                                                        Before Christmas a kind friend
                                                        gave us this lovely light fruitcake..


It is almost too pretty to
      eat......although my husband
dug into it quickly!

                                                                 I am using my teal
                                                                 green transferware
                                                                 for tea today.


                                                             I am a little late posting
                                                             these as they look rather
                                                             Christmasy but better late
                                                             than never......don't you
                                                             think.              




                                       We are expecting a storm tomorrow so
                                                 it might be a good day to snuggle in.

                                                Thank you, Arlene for this sweet treat.....
                                                we really enjoyed it!

                                                              Hope you have a sweet day!

                                                                             Carolyn

Your photography is beautiful, as always. The "light" fruitcake is pretty and looks like it would be very tasty.

That's a very nice fruit cake and you are right - very light. I made fruit cake this year - my first ever and we really like them. The key ingredient was the brandy. Your photos are very cheerful in the dead of winter! We are expecting some more snow coming too. Keep warm and snuggle in - always a good plan.

Pretty photos and the fruit cake looks so delicious. Have a cozy night in the storm.

The light fruit cake is very pretty and lovely with a cup of tea. I always make a dark and a light every year for Christmas although I didn't get the dark made this year. Love the teal! Stay cozy!

Blessings,
Sandi

Carolyn, what a pretty post. My mom made fruitcake cookies every year. We ate them because they made her happy. She finally realized that she was the only one who really loved them, but the memory of cutting up candied fruit will forever be etched in my mind. I love the aqua transferware. It's hard to find that and the brown that you love so much. Would like to see some of that.

Hi Carolyn. Happy New Year. I am not usually a fan of fruit cake but, admittedly, yours looks good. Love all your transferware. So pretty. Susan
