When the Royal Doulton store had their Christmas open house and sale I picked up this pretty blue and white Devon Cottage teacup by Johnson Brothers.
A couple of ornately decorated sugar cookies from another open house to have with my three o'clock afternoon tea.
Set out on the dining room table with a tall and happy snowman for company. A Christmas Blend from Timothy's is brewing in the kitchen.
On the kitchen wall hangs the prettiest blue and white heart with Queen Anne's Lace, an early Christmas gift from a special friend.
A surprise package came in the mail this week from a sweet blogging sister who also makes her own cards. Included was a Harney & Sons Holiday tea bag and the miniature tea set that matches my book 'A Cup of Christmas Tea'. Totally unexpected and appreciated in knowing my fondness for tea.
I am grateful for the women I have met through blogging who enrich my life with their friendship. To them, and newcomers to my blog, thank you for visiting and leaving kind comments.
