Welcome friends for my first tea of December. The snow is gently falling today making it a picture perfect scene outside.
As you come in the front door, you can't miss the beautiful faux purple wreath a friend made me recently. It was a nice gift to receive as she knows how much I like, and decorate with lavender.
On the other side of the door, a crafted sleigh leans against the wall beside the mailbox. We actually have green boxes for delivery and ours is on a street around the corner. The chickadee mailbox is for hand deliveries and our weekly newspaper.
My first tea for December has a lavender and turquoise theme and is set up on a counter in the kitchen. Choose which teacup you would like.
Rooibos gingerbread tea is brewing in the Lavender Rose teapot.
I pulled out a few tea books to browse through over tea and lit a frosty candle.
A turquoise bird from the Christmas tree is joining us.
I found the miniature tea room this summer which will be used in a fairy garden next year.
Help yourself to a scone while I pour the tea and we can sit and chat for awhile.
