Welcome December!


Welcome Sweet Tea Friends!
and
Welcome December!


I am really enjoying decorating the cottage this December.


I just changed the Friendly Village China on the sideboard and shelf to my red/pink transferware.


I also added some lights above the kitchen cabinets to make it look Christmas-ish!


I also hung some Christmas balls from the chandelier.


(Hubby thinks I'm a bit crazy but he's being a good sport! Lol!)


It is rainy and cold and quite dreary outside but I am finding happiness decorating. 😊 


Hubby found the Bavarian teacup trio recently at an Estate Sale.


Even Mr. Cottage appreciates pink roses and aqua tones.


The china has an irredescent/ pearl like finish.


It was so dirty when we found it but after washing carefully it just shone!


There's a pretty pink rose in the center of the teacup and on the rim of the saucer and plate.







Are you enjoying decorating for the festive season ahead?




Thank you for stopping by today!


See you next time!

An End of November Tea


Hello Sweet Tea Friends!

Can you believe November is coming to an end and Christmas is quickly approaching?


I wanted to share my Royal Albert Flower of the Month Series: November Chrysanthemum; before November is over.


I hope to share all of my Royal Albert Flower of the Month Series together soon.



I must apologize for once again neglecting my blogging friends.


I really can't complain but I have had my third cold in two months and my energy level is minimal.  It's just that time of year I guess.

Making dinner for my hubby and son and whoever appears seems to be all I can accomplish lately.



This teacup, cake plate, cream and sugar that blended with the colours today are Foley's Century Rose.




The rosy toned teapot is Royal Elffeda "Cabbage Rose" Fine Bone China.


Thank you for your visit today!

I do hope that you are staying healthy!


Blessings!

Karen

Relaxing at the Cottage


Hello Dear Tea Friends

It's a lovely day to relax at the cozy cottage.


Lastnight I started bringing a few Christmas boxes from the attic and put out some of my favourite coloured balls.




I'm excited about decorating for Christmas this year because my grand daughter is a little older now and will be excited too.



Here she is, wearing a tea cozy and sitting  with her beautiful mother.  
😊😊
💕


I had to share my daughter's new 12 year old  dog "Brody" which she rescued when she moved out and has become an adored member of our family.


Back to the cottage....


The turquoise teacup is an Aynsley.




The white, turquoise and gold trimmed teapot which  you have also seen before is an Ellgreave, Made in England.


It takes a lot of time to decorate the Cottage and Castle. (Your Home is your Castle).   



The cream and sugar are also Aynsley.



Have you started decorating yet?


Thank you for your visit.

See you next time!
Karen
