Winter White Tea

       Welcome January,

      Well, another year over and a
          new one just begun as the song
             goes.Hope it will be an exciting 
new year for all of you!

             We put away all our Christmas
                decor today so the house usually
               looks bare to me for a few days
               but today was bright and sunny
     so I didn't complain.

                                                                    We hosted a New Years dinner at our
                                                                     house and our new tradition is potluck
                                                                     for New Years instead of another turkey
                                                                     dinner like we used to.
                                                                            There was some of my gingerbread
                                                                     cake leftover for my winter white tea today.
After tea I will enjoy another peek
through Christina Strutt's Living Life
Beautifully book as I very much
enjoy it.

Although the Christmas decor is
gone I still have my little winter
white vignettes here and there to

        My paper whites are blooming.

                                                                                   Winter pine cones still
                                                                                    decorate the windows.

                                                            One of my favorite winter
                                                                        tea spots.          

           I am going to enjoy snuggling in with a book
              and my tea for awhile now cozy winter
     days with a little more time to relax now
that Christmas is over.

                                Thank you to all who visited and left me good 
          wished for the new year as well.

                       Winter Blessings,
