~Tea for One ~

Tea for two is always special

Tea for three or four is a party

From: Southern Lady Gracious Tables by Phyllis Hoffman

but why not treat yourself as nice
as a favored guest?

I pulled out my sweet little teapot for one and
 matching cup and saucer

Look at this cute little guy with his hands on his hips..

A couple of my favorite cookies on the side

(A COUPLE? ........who the heck am I kidding?)

these two little cookies just look too forlorn....better invite some company

Don't forget the pretty linens. 
I'm always a sucker for anything monogrammed.
Even if it's not my initials.

and Voila' it's a party for one.

Sip slowly and enjoy

I take a moment to sit back and dream

and what am I dreaming about, you ask?

why SPRING of course.

~Winter Scenes ~

I went walking in a Winter Wonderland

Wrapped up in my favorite velvet coat

I love traveling through the fresh fallen snow in my beautiful sleigh.

Then I woke up
and realized I was NOT Anna Karenina

and the only fur I had; 
was on my fuzzy slippers.

Oh well, says I
Life is still good.

As I snuggle close to the roaring fire 
that Mr. Wonderful prepared

To warm us on this snowy, icy, January day

And as I sit with with my hands wrapped around a steaming mug
of Ghirardelli Cocoa

I realize there is no place I'd rather be than here
snug as a bug
in my little
 Dressed Up Cottage

Take that
Anna Karenina
