Cosy Tea Times





Welcome December!

Today I am sharing some cosy
winter tea times over the past
few years.
The weather has just turned colder
here but still no snow.







A touch of plaid and some enamalware
makes for a cosy winter tea.



Maybe, you prefer your winter
time afternoon tea by the fire.
I enjoy using my Friendly Village
tea set this time of the year.



A snowy winter tea in the garden.


Enamelware tea again.



                                             Red and white transferware tea
                                              by the fire with sugar cookies...
                                              a nice treat!

 



Tea and mince meat pie

I do love transferware and have
collected all colors over the
years.








Hammock time on a beautiful
winter day with a thermos
of hot tea.


Tea in the Boathouse.


I will end with a cosy fireside tea.
All we need is a good book and some
time to enjoy!

Thanks for joining me for tea today.

Take care,

Christmas in the Porch




Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your
weekend.
Last evening my husband and I
enjoyed strolling the streets of
downtown Charlottetown(PEI)
taking in all the pretty lights
and the vendors set up along
Queen St. for our annual
Victorian Christmas.
You can check out some
beautiful photos and get
more info for this and upcoming

However, getting to my Christmas
in the porch/entry theme.....

We gave our porch a makeover a few
weeks ago.It is not safe to leave me
with a can of paint!
My husband built an open closet
for baskets of mitts,hats etc.
and we built in an electric fireplace
with a cedar surround so I think
it adds a warm and cosy first
impression coming into our
home.


I love this old church window
from our local Restore.
We plan to put mirrors in
the middle part after Christmas.
I think it adds some unique charm
in the hallway coming in from the
screened in porch.


The cedar bench my husband built
is perfect for sitting on to remove
outdoor footwear.


The plaid/tartan throw and pillow give
a warm winter vibe.
These very old skates were a 70 mile
yard sale find a few years ago.







We are enjoying the changes in our
little porch. 

Blessings to you on this first
Sunday of Advent.


Thank you for visiting!
