Tea Tidings

Glad tidings to you and your kin. 
Christmas came. 
So did 2013.

This was opened on Christmas morning. 
We have always waited until morning 
at our house. From the time I was a
little girl, we waited.
I first thought it was going to be a special kind of tea inside...

except, it is from 

"time to share a spot of cheer from london"
Lemon Cream body lotion,
Wild Berry Jam lip shine.
The two have recipes which I shall post on my recipe blog.

Sarah can find the best presents!
And, I'm sure Alex helps!
Thank you dollie~someday we need to travel to London and visit the places your daddy and I went to years ago.

A lovely gift, and an unusual take that makes it even more fun.

Oh, raspberry almond scone - the name just smells good. Are you enjoying this week? I think of it as a bonus week - I don't really have to get down to business until Monday (whatever my business is????) Just think next year at this time, you won't have to think about going back to school. Sally

I would have been so excited if I was thinking it was tea and then I got some great lotion and shampoo...I just love girly stuff!

Hey girlfriend! :)
I wish we were neighbors too...I could use a nice hot cup of tea.....or some lotion...whichever, I'm not picky! lol What a cute gift!
I haven't picked my word for the year, but I'm leaning toward simplify. I need to cut a bunch of stuff our of my life, and that word seems to fit. :)
Hope you have a great weekend!! (and i'm glad you liked my chairs...they were labor intensive, but SO worth it!) :)
