A White Tea !

 Hello everyone,
      Can you believe it is December already? The time will go by so quickly from now until Christmas.

So I hope you will have time to enjoy some quiet time and a cup of tea.
 I am slowly getting my Christmas decorating done.

 A nice cup of hot tea is soothing to the soul don't you think?

Today, I am joining Sandi again for her lovely Tea Time Tuesday at Rose Chintz Cottage .So many lovely teas to enjoy!

Have a lovely day,

When the weather turns frosty it is so pleasant to have a cuppa, and tea is a panacea to feel good,isn't ?

Enjoy your day, dear Carolyn.

I was sipping my tea (ok, I'm at office, not a beautiful table setting as yours....!!) while reading your post!

How beautiful is this! Tea is good for the soul, what an inviting post. The setting you put together is enchanting, perfect for the upcoming season.
Have a wonderful day, I'm off to make tea.

Thank you for the reminder to make a place in each day for quiet time with tea! Your photos are lovely. I enjoy coming to visit to see what you have to share. Your Christmas decorating posts inspire me to keep working on my decorating. The last days have been fully packed and I've gone many directions but the Christmas boxes are down from the attic and the transformation has begun. Thank you, my new friend, for the way you inspire me to reach a bit higher and keep working on my little home.

Good afternoon Carolyn,
Your white tea is so pretty and yes, soothing! The cookies look wonderful! I do love your white tea pot. I have been keeping my eye out for one just like it because I have admired it so often but none to be found around here. Truth is, when I look at all my tea pots, I have more white ones than any other colour! Perhaps I should be looking for different hues although I am drawn to the white and red transferware too, of course. Thank you for a lovely post and have a beautiful day.

Winter whites are so tranquil and so is your tea post today Carolyn.
We've been having rain for a couple of days now but when it turns colder, the snow will be back.
I love that teapot - must look for one.

Dearest Carolyn,

You are very right about the joy of a cup of tea; the way you drink it is a special blessing...

Beautiful, love the cream teacup and teapot. A cup of tea is perfect anytime. Hope you enjoy yours. Take care.

Katy Noelle said...

Carolyn! You have to know that I'm coming to you and a few other blogs to keep me in the Christmas spirit and to remind me of how fun all of this is. I'm STUCK in some very mundane projects before I can decorate. The wonderland in your home is the juicy carrot that I've put in front of me to keep going and get it all done! =]

Love, Katy Noelle
