Getting Ready for Christmas at the Cottage

Happy December Sweet Tea Friends!

I've been busy 
Getting the Cottage Ready for Christmas!

I've also been dogsitting my grand puppies.

My son and daughter-in-law and my grandchildren are in Disneyland so Minnie is staying with us.  

This is my daughter's dog Brody. 

Do you find December the busiest time of the year?

It's so nice to have a relaxing break and have a cup of tea and goodies.

I made a banana bread and my favourite Christmas bought treat is Starbuck's Cranberry Bliss.

The teapot is an Arthur Wood and the teacups are both Royal Albert.

Do you decorate your
mantel too?

We have a small
tree at the cottage.

With some pretty miniature tea decorations, 

of course.

Hope you can take time out today from your busy December schedule for a relaxing cup of tea.

Christmas Blessings!
