New Year's Tea Time

Hello everyone,
The time this year has flown by. I've had a busy year,
and I'm looking forward to a new year of 
travel, gardening, a wedding, and granddaughters graduating from
high school and nursing school
The tea table is set by the fireplace ready for
the ball to drop in New York City.
Candlelight glowing and the warm fire is so cozy.
Gold and silver stars sparkle on the dessert plates. 
Gold jewel napkin rings.
Gold-rimmed glasses to serve champagne.
Celebrating the New Year is so memorable. 

The clocks are Christmas ornaments I've had for awhile.
I did a tablescape with the clock ornaments. GO HERE
The difference between the two tables is a metamorphosis.
My black tree is also used to hang Halloween ornaments.

Have a happy and safe New Year.
Thanks for visiting and I will be back in the new year.
Joyously,
Betty

Merry Christmas and Blogiversary

Hello everyone,
Merry Christmas to all.
Today is my Blogiversary. 
I have been blogging since
December 25, 2009. 
I started blogging on a whim, and I have loved blogging over the years.
I have learned so much over the past eight years. 
Friendship is the most rewarding part of blogging.
Journaling my daily experiences for my family and friends is a
great way to record my journey in retirement.
My photography has improved, but I still have 
a lot to learn about the photo editing process. 
I wanted to share a little Christmas cheer from my garden.
I hung my red teapot on a shepherd hook in the middle of 
the flower bed. Fresh fir from the Christmas tree is a
perfect bed for my glass mercury bird.
A festive red printed ribbon adorns the hook.

I will start another year of blogging with an
open mind and an open heart to new
creative ideas. This past year I have struggled with finding
time to blog, because of my husband's illness. During
July, he had emergency pacemaker surgery
, and I had cataract surgery on both eyes. I have slowed 
down and I just feel like taking life easier. No pressure
to do extra lifting, cooking, or spending money on 
decor for our home. I love setting a Tea scape once a month
for my Tea Time calendar, and maybe a trip I take
is fun to blog about. 2018 is going to be busy
with family activities. Hopefully, we will
stay healthy for a minute. Come back to see my New Year's Eve Post.
Merry Christmas and see you soon.
Joyously,
Betty

December Tea Time

Hello everyone,
Welcome to December and My Cozy Corner. 
"A Cup of Christmas Tea" 
This is the December photo of my 2018 Tea Time Calendar.
I received so much pleasure from styling my tea scapes, and I hope my
friends and family will enjoy my Tea Time calendar. 
Would you like to have A Cup of Christmas Tea?
When I found this cup at the thrift store, I knew
just how I wanted the photograph to look. 
I wanted to have the bokeh effect in my photo and 
I think I accomplished the task. 
I did some research about the teacup and saucer.
  •  Green Holly, Red Berries, Gold Trim
  • Pattern: A Cup of Christmas Tea by Waldman House
  • Status: Discontinued. Circa: 1981 - 2005
I have Holly growing in my garden, 
and I picked fresh Holly 
with berries for the white milk glass vase. 
My great-grandmother's vintage teaspoon 
A red Holly berry candle lights up 
Cup of Christmas Tea.
One more look at the delightful tea scape.

Thanks for stopping by.
Joyously,
Betty
