Hearts are aglow when we fill our homes with domestic warmth, nostalgia, and the beloved trinkets that symbolize the season. ~ Victoria magazine
Welcome everyone to another Tea Time Tuesday.
One of the really nice things about celebrating our Thanksgiving in October here in Canada is that one can start decorating for the holidays early. And so I have. Please come in and join me for some nice hot tea and spicy warm apple pie.
I love Christmas! November on the Island is always rather dreary with bare tree branches and sleeping gardens, so I like getting my Christmas decorations out as early as possible to brighten things up. Everything looks better with a little sparkle, don't you think?
Today as I celebrate my son's birthday, I give thanks to God for him. He was an adorable child with the face of a cherub who too soon grew into a very rebellious teenager. A few years later, with God's help, he became a very sweet and lovable young man. Here he is at the 2010 Olympics with his son Zachary.
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
When I think of birthdays and Christmas, I also think of presents.
I received a present/Giveaway in the mail the other day from Celia. It is a wonderful treasure trove of note cards and other writing materials all inside this hard covered book. She included a coffee mug with her signature high heel on it and some tea as well as a big chocolate bar. Yum! Love tea and chocolate!
Celia has two blogs; one on which she shares her regular tea posts and the other is one which she shares her story and journey following her accident, Falling Off A High Heeled Life. I hope you will take some time to visit her at both of her blogs. She is an inspiration! Thank you, Celia, for being you and for your generous Giveaway. God bless you!
"Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see." ~ Hebrews 11:1
I am delighted you have stopped by today and I would love for you to join me for Tea Time Tuesday. All you have to do is share a favourite tea cup or teapot, a coffee mug, or something tea related. If you wish, you may do coffee instead of tea or the following is acceptable too: apple cider, iced tea or iced coffee, hot chocolate, lemonade, or punch.
