Tea in the Library #23

I am
Content in my cozy craft room
fashioning my own snowstorm of tinsel snowflakes, 

making frosted  lanterns for tea lights,

enjoying some touches of winter white and pink...

  My Aynsley  teacup  enjoys a winter makeover...

This cup always makes me think of Jane Austen heroines

 “She stood by the tea-table in a light-colored muslin gown, which had a good deal of pink about it. She looked as if she was not attending to the conversation, but solely busy with the tea-cups, among which her round ivory hands moved with pretty, noiseless, daintiness.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

  1. Lovely! Tea in the library is where I usually take mine. But, I am often surrounded by books. Jane would be pleased. Now - your Elizabeth Gaskill quote from "North & South" is a gem. Love that work!

  2. A lovely tea and teacup, Susan! Love the quote you shared. Thank you for sharing and coming to tea.


  3. A perfect Austen tea cup! And your choice of passages is lovely. I wish you could bring some of that cold, wintery weather to us. I am tired of 85! Really!

  4. Good Morning Susan!
    Beautiful photos and teacup!
    Such a pleasure to meet you-
