2014 Tea Time Review


Hello everyone, 
No, you're not seeing double...January and February tea time is a rerun. I posted the mosaic of January and February HERE.
February is my favorite month, because  I love CHOCOLATE  and because I was engaged to be married on Valentine's Day 1960.
March was also an amazing month for tea time. The air is warmer and tea time is always refreshing after playing (working) in the garden.
April was Tartan tea time. Angels, daffodils and 
Scottish shortbread cookies. Of course my Scottish scarf and hat from Scotland in the Wallace clan pattern are my favorite. 
May was time for the Garden Tour. I set my blue and white tea time table for everyone to enjoy while touring my garden. Visiting the Master Gardeners and shopping at the vendor's booths. 
June is lavender picking time. I have five plants and they are amazing. The patio is cool and it's time to relax and enjoy the summer breeze with a cup of tea.
July tea time is dreaming of the sea shore. We live about five hours from the Pacific ocean and sometimes during the hot days of July I wish I was walking on the beach bundled up in a warm sweatshirt. But I am bringing the ocean to the valley and the sea shells too. 
August is time to be inside with a good book. I love to read Jan Karon's books. The Mitford books are such a welcoming read. 
September is a month of reflection for me. I love to read and found another wonderful author. Susan Branch is an amazing writer and artist. I found this book in the travel section of the bookstore and I devoured every page in a flurry.  
November is sweet and beautiful. The Autumn colors are my favorite. I say that about every color. LOL! Apple cider tea is soooo good.
December is the month of being Jolly!!!! Get it, Jolly Old St. Nick.
Even Santa needs to take a break and have some milk and cookies (he doesn't drink tea) before he hops on his sleigh to deliver more gifts on Christmas Eve. 
Hope you are having a little rest this week in between Christmas and the New Year. Sweetheart and I are watching a few movies and  thinking about 2015's project list. 
Thanks for your comments and joining as a new follower. 
Joyously,
Betty

  1. Betty, your tea review was very enjoyable and I loved seeing the Wallace tartan tea! I love the Mitford books as well. A friend loaned me the whole series and I enjoyed every one. A walk on the shore is several months away here. Although we are only fifteen minutes from the beach, our winter brings lots of ice and snow and beach weather doesn't come again until late June. Oh, I can't wait! Thank you for joining me for tea and Happy New Year to you and your family!

    Blessings,
    Sandi
