Happy New Year in Chocolate!
After lunch with some friends the other day, I found a mysterious box on my doorstep. Wasn't expecting anything!
Fragile? Berries? Hmmm......
So well-packed! Styrofoam inside the box, foam padding, freezer pack - no danger of damage in transit. What fun!
Oh, yum! A box of really large chocolate dipped strawberries!
What a sweet gift! How yummy! Almost hate to eat them!
Maybe we should have a Christmas tea party?
I love my little Christmas tea set! Spode's Christmas Tree pattern - spent years collecting enough for our family dinners - and I remember how excited I was when I got the little miniature tea set! No granddaughters, but all of our grandsons have enjoyed using it for little Christmas tea parties over the years.
I love this little teapot from one of the dollar stores too, but use it just for decoration. It's so cute!
It's already the Ninth Day of Christmas! Only a few more days to enjoy the decorations before packing it all away. Everything's so rushed before Christmas that it's nice to have a little time afterwards just to relax and enjoy it all. Years ago we took everything down on New Year's Day, but now I like to leave it up through Epiphany.
Tomorrow(or today!) it's back to school here - so great to be retired!
