I Couldn't Wait Any Longer....

I have given into temptation...
 


and started to do my Christmas decorating...
 


mostly
I am just putting the trees up...
 
not really decorating them yet...
 
because,
I really do like the trees just bare...
 
and uncomplicated...
 
soon
I will adorn them...
 


these pink balls,
are part of a craft project,
I'll be making over the weekend...
 
but, for now
I couldn't help scattering them around...
 


 
it's nice to stop for tea,
and admire the twinkling lights...
 

I've had this rosy mug,
quite a while,
and just lucked out and found a matching plate...
 
they are happily reunited...
 


a rosy mug
calls for a rosy tea pot...
 

 
I made pomegranate scones the other day
for the first time...
 
they are delicious day old...
 
but,  when they are fresh
the little pomegranate seeds are so hot and juicy
and they just pop in your mouth...
Mmmm
 
Here is a link to the very easy recipe...
 



 
the Wonder of Christmas,
I am smitten...

I like soft colours for Christmas too and I'm wondering what you will make with the pretty pink balls. The scones look delicious Bella and would be nice to have with a cup of tea.

I am smitten, too! I have two trees up -- not decorated yet, but that's okay -- the twinkling of the lights is enough for now. Love your teacup and how wonderful to find the matching saucer. Thank you for the recipe for the pomegranate scones. Happy Tea Day!

Hi Bella,
I am loving your soft pink. It is a colour that seems to woo me and the ornies look so pretty scattered about with your sweet little tree lit in the background. The cup is darling and your scones look delicious. I've never tried pomegranate scones before and you've piqued my curiosity! A beautiful pink post for Tea Time. Thank you for sharing it with us and Happy Thanksgiving!

Blessings,
Sandi

so charming, bella! love the pink and white, and all the ruffles:) pretty white tree and china, too! have a great week!

Haworth said...

Your home is looking so beautiful, Bella, as it dresses up for Christmas. I admit that I like to leave things looking a little bare at first, too. Sometimes I leave our fresh-cut tree up for a a few days, ungarnished, just to enjoy its shape and scent. Wishing you lots of fun putting the finishing touches on your lovely home!

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

I could stay in that lavender room all day long it is so lovely! I have a new tea I adore and I bet you might as well, it is a rose tea I bought from The Tea Madame in Sumner, the smell is intoxicating and there is nothing like roses in December. Everything is lovely Bella, I look forward to seeing it all decorated for the holiday.
