Holy Night Medallion Printouts

 The stars are brightly shining...

These vintage images from religious theme Christmas cards can be downloaded and used to make medallion style ornaments, used in making tags, or   banners.

Remember to clink on them and save large, they will have better resolution that way - no matter what size you print. 

Happy Pink Saturday!
Have a great week!

Shall I pour?

What mattered was that they were together 
with a million thoughts to share and plenty of tea in the pot.

Tea Pot - American Traditional Ironstone Pottery Co. Canonsburg, Pa. U.S.A.

Creamer- Empress China 

 Tea cup -  LENOX presidential Collection Monroe

Poppy Seed and Apricot Crescents


Shall we take a turn about the room while the tea steeps?

Theodore will guard the biscuit tin.

Vintage Sunshine American Masters Series Cookie Tin - Still life Fruit by James Peale

 It is decorated with small treasures, items of minor worth, their value is in the pleasure of a vintage find, whimsical appeal, patina, or the echo of a pleasant memory. 

 Nasco - Rosalee ironstone

 Turkey platter - made in Japan

 After admiring so many paper wreaths I finally made one for myself.

A pair of vintage Gurley turkey candles.

Cuttings from the garden fill out a pretty store bought bouquet.

White Damask Slipcovers from Surefit. I love how well they wash.

Izzy finds a sun dappled spot for a nap.

 Heissner squirrel is busy among the leaves.

Theodore is looking concerned. He hopes we haven't let the tea grow cold.

But no, it's perfect. 
Almost, but not quite too hot. 
Shall I pour?

Thank you for joining me. Have a blessed week!

Blustery Day Tea

Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say

That it seems that it may turn out to be
feels that it will undoubtedly
looks like a rather blustery day, today
It seems that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubtedly
Looks like a rather blustery day

- A.A. Milne

Blustery  days are perfect for tea in a heavy mug and listening to adventure stories featuring mummies and  quirky, intrepid heroines. 

Blustery  days are perfect for ravens perched atop vintage Underwood typewriters. The scratch and rustle of dry leaves sends a shiver down my spine. Is that the flutter of dark wings nearby?

Blustery  days are perfect for time travel( What is that whiring sound I hear? Is it the wind or a wibbly wobbly timey whimey thing?) - let's go back and  visit 2013 


And don't think Debbie is resting on her laurels this year!

Bluster days are great for walks on country lanes

or a visit to a spooky place
