Hello and happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I was blessed to have all of my family here for Christmas eve and on Christmas day also had my extended family for Christmas dinner.
It is quiet this morning and it feels so good to take some time to enjoy a leisurely cup of tea with toast and some very special Christmas jam. Kitty of "Kitty's Kozy Kitchen" sent me this delicious jam for a thank you after winning my giveaway last month. The recipe is on Kitty's blog if you would like to make some. I love the bright red color of the jam. So pretty and yummy!
I've placed the tea tray on my favorite bed quilt I use for winter.
I love taking time and looking closely at the lovely Christmas cards I received this holiday season. Its such a joy to hear from friends and relatives this special time of year.
The teacup is filled with Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. That has been my favorite for the Christmas season.
The unmarked dishes are from a set of four I gave my Mother-in-law years ago. They came back to me with only one teacup. Hopefully I can find three more!
Thank you for visiting me during this special holiday season and leaving such lovely comments. I will be taking a break from blogging for a couple of weeks as we head south for a few months. God bless and happy New Year to all of you!
I will be joining the following blog parties: Teatime Tuesday, A Return to Loveliness, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Share Your Cup Thursday, Teacup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, and Show and Tell Friday.
