Getting Ready for Christmas at the Cottage


Happy December Sweet Tea Friends!

I've been busy 
Getting the Cottage Ready for Christmas!

I've also been dogsitting my grand puppies.


My son and daughter-in-law and my grandchildren are in Disneyland so Minnie is staying with us.  



This is my daughter's dog Brody. 


Do you find December the busiest time of the year?


It's so nice to have a relaxing break and have a cup of tea and goodies.


I made a banana bread and my favourite Christmas bought treat is Starbuck's Cranberry Bliss.







The teapot is an Arthur Wood and the teacups are both Royal Albert.



Do you decorate your
mantel too?









We have a small
tree at the cottage.


With some pretty miniature tea decorations, 

of course.





Hope you can take time out today from your busy December schedule for a relaxing cup of tea.


Christmas Blessings!

Sadler Collection for Tea Time


Hello  Sweet Tea Friends

I hope all of you are well.  

I've been taking a little blogging break. Please forgive me for not replying to your comments.


Today hubby is out and I have the opportunity to  share my blue Sadlers with you (and some others).


I find it so relaxing to play with my pretties.

 I used to be a huge fan of blue china, but pink is my go to colour now. What colour of china do you prefer?

(Do you see the photograph of my darling grand daughter on the left wall?  💕💕

It was a gift from my dear Daughter-In-Law.)



 I think my blue Sadler teapot collection is really complete now.







Although I still haven't completed my pink Sadler teapot collection yet.  Lol.  



The cabinet just looks full.  There's really much more room for a few more.  Hee hee!  A closer look inside.....










(Sorry about the glare.)

Now back to the blue tea time....



This pretty blue teacup with pink and white roses is a Foley.



This blue Royal Grafton has a wide trim of  rich gold on the inner cup.




November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada.

Thank you for your visit today!

Pink Roses for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month



Hello Dear Tea Friends!

I've missed you all.

Today I wanted to share some pink roses for National Breast Cancer Awareness month.


Yes, there's still a few buds in the garden.......at the end of October!  Hurray!


Pink roses on china give me such joy!





My Grand Daughter and I with her dog Minnie and the tea wagon I wanted to show you!


You must be quick to snap a pic. Lol!  She moves soooo fast!

Just like my teapots and roses, she also gives me such joy!
