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

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,

Such wonderful little "spots" to sit and enjoy winter. Love the wood burning stove (I think?that's one) and that would be a real treat! Everything pretty on your site!

Dearest Carolyn,
Those are really cozy tea settings with your transferware china.
When the painters are done with our exterior I look forward to cleaning up the house and then curling up with a book and a hot tea!

What a beautiful post! You are so in tune to the beauty of tea and it’s companion China. I really enjoyed looking your pictures and can feel the coziness! Thank you for a respite from the world outside of home.

I so much enjoy your photos. It was you who inspired me to start my own red transferware collection. Thank you.

I love the red and white transferware and the Stewart tartan rug. All looks so cosy. It's the beginning of Summer here and the weather is very changeable.
Greetings and good wishes.

I have always enjoyed a bcup of tea, but you inspired me to also use my teapots.

I never tire of seeing all your beautiful transferware you have collected.

Merry Christmas!

What very cozy, beautiful pictures. They definitely put me in the spirit of sipping tea in winter.

Carolyn, you are so kind to share this much beauty with us. And I must say, you are a true artist. These charming images are just perfect! For some reason, my eyes lingered on the little square plate with the four heart shaped cookies - it is just so pretty!
