HAPPY NEW YEAR for "Friends Sharing Tea"



Considering the temperature outside,
we are having our tea by the fire today.
My first tea of the year is all about fun.



I used that free template from
 another site's link (that I put in
a post a few days back) and made
the banner myself.  I added
some Jane Austen type figures 
purchased as an art download 
 on Etsy.



This fruitcake was taken back
 out of the freezer:
encase you missed it.



Needless to say there was a  little
glitter to deal with in the
kitchen area.







I would like to thank each one
 of you who visits this weekly event
and especially those who participate
 in these teatime linky parties.  
 We do love teatime!



I hope you enjoyed my whimsical
tea time today and can join the party.


I will be joining these parties too:
Tuesday Cuppa Tea
Share Your Cup
Home Sweet Home

Another lovely tea time post Bernideen! I love the banner you created and will be going back to read the post I apparently missed on that. Thanks for hosting this party for us all to enjoy. While I don't have many post-worthy tea posts to share, I always love to see yours and the others who participant each week. Your posts are appreciated and so is the work you do providing a place for us to share our love of all things tea related.

Happy New Year, Bernideen! Your whimsical and glittery tea party is the perfect way to kick off 2018. Jane Austen would approve! Thank you for hosting and here's to another year of delightful tea parties!

Happy New Year, Bernideen! Your table looks so inviting in front of the fire! We are very cold this week also and a storm is heading our way tomorrow. It's wintertime on the Island; a time good to snuggle in and enjoy tea and treats. Thank you for your lovely tea parties and your invitation to join you each week. Blessings on your day!

What a beautiful setting for tea! Here I sit now, with my daughter and grandson visiting, drinking a cup of "Snow Day" by David's teas. Indeed, it is a snow day here!
Love your banner! Happy New Year!

What a beautiful tea table you've set! I absolutely love the vintage banner you created, and of course, the glitter makes it over-the-top special! How lovely to have tea in front of the fire on these cold winter days! We had two Christmas tea parties over the holidays using my mom's Royal Albert Lavender Rose china, it was such fun! We want to make it a yearly tradition now :) Hugs to you today!
