Tea Time!

It was cold out today! But I was warm by my fireplace with a homemade scone (mocha with cocolate chips) and Tazo's Calm tea.
Recipe for above on Scones n More (my recipe Blog)
Below: Raspberry-Almond and coconut scones.

Below is a morning (Pero) grain drink I enjoy with my whole grain muffin (from Trader Joe's) and it was Easter time.

A warm fire aaahhh. Isn't nice to set things up for yourself. Even if it's only for a short time. Tea or coffee in front of a fire how nice.

Yes, it sure is nice to be 'good' to yourself sometimes! Recharges the batteries! Thanks for coming by!

Mary Ruth, thank you for visiting my blog the other day. I love your tea time photos, they look like right out of a magazine.
It looks very cozy.

gypsy, aka Tam!
I just love your Blog! I will visit often!
Thanks! I am practicing staging vignettes for pictures. My arm shakes and so to stop my pictures from becoming blurry my friend Judith suggested a tripod. Well, that opened up a whole new world for me in photography! Now, I consider content, lighting, angles! I think it is so much FUN!
Thanks for coming by!

Mary Ruth,
I am also practicing staging vignettes and tablescapes and I received a lot of advice from Judith. I asked for a tripod for my birthday coming up this month and maybe I'll look for some type of spotlight since I dislike how the flash makes pictures look. I am hoping that will improve my photography skills a little. I learn from your pictures as well and really like how the teatime ones turned out and overall I enjoy your blog a lot and will be abck daily to check out what is new :).

Tam, Thanks so much! I love how you put things together too! Judith brought us up a couple of notches!
I haven't had time to be on the internet too often, but I do check in here every day! I just love Blogging!

Hi Mary Ruth
I was at TJ Maxx this afternoon and saw a coffee pot and it reminded me of you and your style. It is white and black with palm trees and zebra's on it. I though how perfect that would be on a morning with a spring day. Or by the fire with coca in it.
Just had to let you know.

Glenda!
I may have to set up something with you as my personal shopper! Wow! I am sure that was a great teapot!
Thanks for thinking of me!
I have not had time at the computer for a week so I need to get back to posting and going to visit my favorite Blogs! Yours is one of them!

Pat!
Thanks! Makes tea time a bit more meaningful doesn't it? Thanks for visiting!

Oh it all looks so inviting! Wish I had the space to decorate like this!!! Thank you for visiting my blog - I'm glad you enjoyed the beach photos! =)

Mary Ruth said...

We are going to sell soon, (DH's work ended here) so I won't have the space anymore either! I have loved playing with the Colonial look that is prevelent here and mix it with my other stuff.

I was thinking of doing a more modern setting in the next house. But, I have to buy it first (going to Florida eventually!) to see how the house talks to me. It may ask for something totally different! I usually wait until I have been in the house a month or so before knowing what to do. This was move #30 for me! We had military moves... so that accounts for high number! Thanks for visiting! Will visit your blog often! The beach calls to me!

Thank you Madai! I will start a recipe section (with pictures)! I LOVE scones! omg! How wonderful to find someone else who is a Tazo tea lover! I just love the Earl Gray one the best! I will visit Wren Cottage often! Thanks for visiting!

Glenda said...

Mary Ruth I can't believe I won't be seeing your home like this in the future. You gave me inspiration to look at Duncan Phyfe furniture.
I would love to find a dinning table.
Wow #30 in moves. It's so unimaginable to me about moving that many times. I don't like that packing, you must have it down to a science by now. I do hope you continue to blog in your new home whenever that may be. Theirs a lucky person out there that's going to move into your home.

Nothing better than a cup of tea and a scone for cold weather, I'm sure you enjoyed yourself. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I just discovered yours that way. Your home looks cozy by the fire.

Mary Ruth said...

glenda,
I am glad I took lots of pictures as we decorated this house! I won't miss the 'work' of a house this size though.
I willl continue with my blog wherever we end up! Now that I have the picture 'bug' I will continue to post pictures of vignettes and projects I do.
I know that a realtor said that whomever buys this house will feel they 'won the lottery'! ha ha!

rosy inspiration,
Thanks for your warm post while visiting my Blog today! I love a real fire, but a gas fireplace will do for now!

I will visit your Blog soon!
