Tea, roses and a good book

This past weekend, I found this pretty tray in a small gift shop in the village of Dwingeloo. I loved that it was the same cream as my dishes. I also thought the roses on it were so cheerful. I made myself a cup of tea on Monday and took a photo of the tray.
I sat and enjoyed my tea while reading "Dickens' Christmas" which was a gift from my online friend Joanne while we were season sisters. (Thanks Joanne! I really do love this book.) I have found my thoughts going towards Christmas lately since I am planning projects I need to work on for Christmas gifts I want to make.

Lovely tray Heidi. I like the roses too. Sounds like you had a pleasant afternoon.

What a pretty tray, Heidi. It goes so well with your china, and I like the way the rose adds just the perfect touch. I'm glad you're enjoying the book... I have a copy of it, too :)
Hugs, Joanne

Wow Heidi, What an interesting looking book, I must investigate it, it sounds exactly like my kind of book. I am happy thinking about Christmas anytime so only need a tiny bit of encouragement to get me going. Such a pretty tray, I hope you were enjoying your afternoon tea on Saturday at 3 :>)
