Pink And White Christmas

Seasons Greetings!
The farm cottage is decorated and ready for Christmas.  I have so much fun decorating the fireplace mantel.
This is the first year at the farm cottage for my white tree.  I bought it at a after Christmas clearance sale for $7.00!  Here are a few  closeups of my favorite ornaments.
In front of the large picture window is the silver tea set gifted to me from my hubbys family.  I'll post more on this wonderful gift later.
Thank you for stopping by during this special season.

I will be joining the following parties:
White Wednesdays
Feathered Nest Fridays
My Romantic Home
Pink Saturday

Christmas Farm Cottage Cupboard

Merry Christmas everyone,
Today I thought I'd share some pictures of my cottage cupboard.  It was originally a dark oak.  This is how it turned out for Christmas.
I love this Christmas card my friend gave me.
Pictures of a few of my favorites on the shelf.
You can see a peek of my cottage living room and white tree.  You'll have to come back another day to see more!
I am linking up with:
White Wednesday
Feathered Nest Friday
My Romantic Home
Pink Saturday

Have a good week,

Christmas Tea

Merry Christmas everyone,
Today I'm sharing my collection of blue Christmas plates.  The dates bring back so my happy memories of
past Christmas teas and meals with family and friends.
I bought the teapot years ago to go with the blue and white tea cups my mom gave me.  I was excited to find the squirrel  a couple of years ago on a shopping trip.
The Christmas plates on the back state "A happy holiday to you", Royal Crownford by Norma Shermen, Staffordshere England.
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed Christmas season.
I am joining the tea parties at
Rose Chinz Cottage
A Delightsome Life
Plumed Pen
Bernideens Tea Time

Enjoying Tea

Hello and happy holidays!
Taking a little break from decorating my tiny farm cottage for Christmas.  I'm enjoying tea today using one of my cups from my white collection.
I'll be sharing more of my cottage later all dressed up in white and pink for the holidays.
I'm also joining Sandi at Rose Chintz cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

Turkey Dishes

This year we're going to my nieces home for Thanksgiving, so thought I'd dress up my table in the
Thanksgiving theme for my hubby and me to enjoy.
The large turkey plate with leaves is marked MarutaWare and the strutting turkey plate is marked "Turkey" by W.R. Midwinter, Burslem, England.
I've had the large platter for years.

My dear Moma made the turkey tureen in the l970's.  We had such fun doing ceramics together.

Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.
I'm joing others at "Rose Chintx Cottage" for Tea Time Tuesday.

Hoping you all have a good week!

Autumn Fireplace

Happy November everyone!
The  weather has been cool and we have been using our fireplace everyday now, so thought I'd show you a few pictures.

The picture of the shepard dog and lamb was one of my Moms, along with the beautiful old clock.  I bought the two dog figurines on a trip to Door County, Wisconsin, and I made the latch hook rug years ago.
Thanks for visiting,
