A New Year's Tea

A new year, full of possibilities and challenges. What will 2015 bring for each of us?
May you celebrate, or find solace in a cup of tea during the new year.
Dream over the winter months of inspiring plans for the garden.
Our wait has finally ended with the first episode of season 5 of Downton Abbey. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did! (web source photo)

  7. hello
    un petit passage pour vous souhaiter :
    Des sourires, pour chasser la tristesse,
    De l’audace, pour que les choses ne restent jamais en place,
    De la confiance, pour faire disparaître les doutes,
    Des gourmandises, pour croquer et déguster la vie,
    Du réconfort, pour adoucir les jours difficiles,
    De la générosité, pour se nourrir du plaisir de partager,
    Des arcs en ciel, pour colorer les idées noires,
    Du courage, pour continuer à avancer !
    tendresse

  9. Happy New Year! Your blog and this post are just gorgeous. I had a lavender bedroom growing up and I still have so many beautiful memories of that. My father was an amazing man and he allowed me to decorate as I pleased. I love all things related to tea. I would love to sit and share tea with you. Beautifully done here and I love seeing you. I am catching up with many because of this job loss I experienced. The blog keeps my spirits high! Prayer always welcome. Hugs, Anne

  36. Greetings! Lovely photos and thoughts. I love your header and side panels just perfect for you I think. I have never watched Downton Abbey. It was just never a good time for me to catch it when it started and now I keep wanting to watch it from the beginning. Something to look forward to, right?
