A November Tea By The Fire

Hello and happy November to you!  I am so happy you can join me for tea today!  It is windy and cold out, and I just came inside from the outdoors tucking my gardens in for the winter.  I need a cup of hot tea to warm me up!






The tray table is by the fireplace waiting for me, so I grabbed an old magazine, brewed a cup of  Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea, and now I am ready to sit a spell and relax.











The teacup is unmarked and I found it at a resale store.  I thought the orange flowers pretty for a fall day.















It has been in the low 40's all week and looks like it will be that way or colder from now on.  A busy time for the tea kettle!

.












Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hoping where you live you can stay warm!


I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, A Return To Loveliness, Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea,  and Show and Tell Friday.

Lovely post! I love Country Home...so sad they aren't publishing. The teacup is a lovely old Staffordshire Imari and was made before 1891. I love the colors too! Your weather sounds like ours...it was frosty and 32 this morning. Keep warm by the fire...it is so inviting! Your Harney choice is a favorite!

Good Evening to you, It may be cold and windy outside, but you look warm and cosy inside your home with your fire glowing. I love your Imari cup and saucer, it is so very beautiful and how lucky to find it at a reasonable price.
Enjoy your tea and Country Home Magazine.
Best Wishes
Daphne

Hi Nancy,
You have yourself a cozy fireside tea and that is a pretty teacup you found. It's cold here too and we even had some ice pellets earlier. It's only going to get colder here too. My kettle will be busy as well. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea and have a lovely week, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Nancy,
your phoos look so inviting with the fire and the tea setting. Its cold and rainy here, too. So hot tea is always welcomed. Thank you for this lovely tea time.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Nancy:
I see the reflections in your pictures of such a lovely room and stone fireplace surround. Very lovely setting for this special tea time. Also, a beautiful Cup and Saucer!

Looks so inviting! We aren't quite chilly enough yet here in Florida for a fire, but we're getting there! Too bad I don't have a fireplace!
Love your tea cup and magazine, etc...wish I could join you!
Thank you for inviting us in to share with you today. This was refreshing.

Hi Nancy, What a cozy tea party by the fire. With the time change and cooler temperature, tea is very inviting these days. We don't usually have a fire in our fireplace until the holidays, but your fire is definitely giving me the desire for one. Have a great week!

There's nothing like tea and a good magazine by a cozy fire when the temperature dips.

What a cosy little teatime! I love the tray table you used, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Hi Nancy,
The weather is still warm around here, but the dark and rainy Fall days already ask for a cozy spot to drink tea. Your tea table by the fireplace with a magazine and a cup of tea seem the ideal place to be! And the tea cup is lovely!
Thanks for sharing. Hugs

Oh what a lovely spot for a hot cuppa tea :) Sitting by the crackling fire with a hot drink and good book is always a joy. And your tea cup is beautiful!
