Tuesday Tea

 Well I'm back for a Tuesday Tea, been awhile that I have been home and able to sit back and relax with a cup of tea in the afternoon. Since hubby turned 65 in October, we have been at the hospital with his mother, who is doing well now and in a nursing home and contented to hospital in Toronto and his brother going to join the Lord on Wednesday, been rough. Every family has their time, when tragedies hit and ours has been fortunate throughout the years, now it's our turn.
So after a busy devastating weekend, home and going to enjoy a cup of tea-please join me in front of the fireplace and I will try and finish the Christmas tour of the house.
I joined Beverly for pink Saturday, so check it out after our tea

using my Royal Winton set again, love it, and it fits the season
flowers are all from the funeral, arrangements were being thrown
out, so we delivered to our church, nursing home and made smaller
ones out of the bigger ones.

my tea today is green tea, some squares and chocolate candy I made with candy canes,
below my Christmas table with the elf shoe napkins

  1. I am so sorry that your family is going through such difficult times right now!

    I am truly glad you have shared such a lovely - and much needed- tea.

    I pray for your family and that you fit in as many relaxing tea moments as you are able to do in this busy - and for you certainly saddened- beautiful holiday season.



    1. Thank you for your prayers, they are deeply appreciated. Just wanted to let you know that I got my google updated and finished the tree pictures. God bless

  2. Dear Betty,
    I'm so sorry your family is going through such a hard time. Life certainly has its joys but also its heartaches. Take care, my friend. My prayers are with you and your family.

    I love your china today; it's beautiful and perfect for the holidays. Such a gorgeous pattern and I'm glad you were able to enjoy a few quiet moments for a tea respite.
    I have had to buy space a couple of times since I started to blog.
    Thank you for coming to my Christmas tea and have a lovely day.

    Christmas blessings,

    1. Hi Sandi, thank you for your kind words. Life does deal like this-when it rains it pours. Also, heard all weekend that God doesn't give you more than you can handle. Had three teenagers together, believe me I can vouch for that.
      Just wanted to let you know that I got my google updated and more pictures on. Merry Christmas and God bless....

  3. What a lovely tea service, the flowers are very elegant! Enjoy your Christmas tea and I wish you a very Merry Christmas. Visiting from Sandi :)
