Tea in the Library #21

 Late lies the wintry sun a-bed,
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.
- Robert Louis Stevenson


 Oh!  Cold, cold Winter  when  the snap of a branch sounds like gun shot and the sky is an unfurled bolt of grey velvet. 

 A village of chocolate cakes dusted with powdered sugar ...

 We are house bound; working from home because of the subzero temperatures. Each snug in our own office we meet up for tea in the dining room.  

An ironstone teapot, cream and sugar...


Spode tea cups...

And daydreams of winter magic.

  1. Hello Susan and Happy New Year! The red polka dot cream and sugar are so cute and I love your Spode teacup! Thank you for featuring my Sugar Plum Fairy Tea; that is a lovely surprise! Always enjoy your company for Tea Time.


  2. Happy New Year!
    I enjoyed the poetry and prose. It is very cold here today, unusual for us. Your tea time looks set up for comfort. Perfect for a cold cold winter!

  3. I think you've picked the very best way to see out the cold weather.

  4. Oh I was thinking of you. Hoping you are all snuggled warm in your bed. I guess you don't have to worry about the bed bugs biting. Just frost bite. lol! Stay warm my friend!

  5. You drew me in and made me want to stay in your snug home sipping tea and maybe discussing good books.

  6. Hi Susan,
    I am so honoured to be mentioned at your BlogSpot! Thank you so very much for leaving such kind words too! Your Tea in the Library looks so cozy today and inviting! Thank you again! I hope that you have the best of everything in 2014! Take care,

  7. What a cozy tea and I love how you meet up in the library. Keep warm! xo

  8. I know it's cold, but it sounds magical to me. I really think I need to move! Lovely post!
