WELCOME THROUGH MY RED DOOR!
After last year’s winter, I have not looked forward to this winter at all. So as I was taking Christmas down, early one Sunday morning I had this urge to lighten it up a bit.
I was also making scones at the same time so naturally it was time for tea.
I recently found these tea cups and dessert plates at Home Goods and fell in love with them. They had to come home with me! And they were just the ticket to how I was feeling this particular morning.
I am finally learning in my older age to start enjoying my favorite things,
rather than just saving them for company. I’m realizing I can pamper myself without feeling overly indulgent.
So I decided to create a tablescape for four and I sat down and had a cup of tea and a scone (or two) by myself while the house was quiet and peaceful.
The rest of the family was still in bed, but had they come down anytime soon, they would have been more than welcome to join me.
For now, I was enjoying the solitude. Peace and quiet.
Nice hot tea with cream and sugar or honey and lemon!
Yummmy blueberry scones with cranberry orange butter.
Eventually, one by one, they made their way down and devoured the scones.
They’re not much for tea, unfortunately for me. I drink alone around here!
Maybe I should start every weekend morning this way!
Now I was able to continue putting the rest of Christmas away!
And not think about it being winter too much!
I didn’t completely eliminate winter out of the house though! After all spring is still officially two months away.
And just wishing it weren’t winter doesn’t make it so.
Might as well make the most of it!
I’m linking to Tablescape Thursday. Stop on by!
Thank you for visiting today. I’d love to hear how you are getting through winter in your own way!
