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!

  1. Your cute granddaughter trying on the tea cozy made me smile. I'm also coveting your turquoise teawares. So pretty!

    I put up my Christmas decorations early. Even with my mom's help, it took over 3 hours to put up my tree! The fragile tea-themed ornaments were wrapped so carefully so it took forever to take them out. At least now I can just relax and enjoy the tree!

  2. Dear Karen:
    What great fun it will be for you this Christmas with that sweet Granddaughter.....and the whole family of course. Your cottage looks so lovely with fresh colors and so light. I see a happy doggy there too! Thanks for sharing and linking the cottage.

  3. Love the PINK little tree. Cute little girlie too!

  8. Love your colour theme Karen! The pastel ornaments are beautiful! The Aynsley teacup is so pretty and a lovely shape. What a sweet little girlie and the pup too. Christmas is going to be lots of fun for you this year.
