teatime15a.jpg just a heads up…my dh is such a jokester…he can never take a “normal” picture…he always has to do something semi-obscene…

teatime15b.jpg trust me, i didn’t want to show this pix (or the others like it, lol!)…but the only way i’d get hubby to join me in the pix is if he got to do a “funny” pix…yeh, hardy, har, har…{sigh} he is something else, you know! yeh, this is my hubby…

  4. Thank you for the invitation.
    It is beautiful to have a peek into your lovely Christmas house.
    The food looks delicious and I love the old teacups.
    I have a dozen myself, so I could make a tree of them too 🙂
    Like the haiku also very much !!

  5. Your high tea looks divine!
    I had to laugh at the photo of your husband, mine played tea parties with me too, and I couldn’t get a photo of him with him doing something silly!

  6. Ack, I meant to say “without him doing something silly”
