When Christmas bells are swinging
above the fields of snow,
We hear sweet voices ringing
from lands of long ago,
And etched on vacant places
Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish,
And loves we used to know.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Today I'm having tea on the dishes my mother
gave me for Christmas years ago.
The pattern is "Christmastime" by Nikko.
A few santas in the kitchen
A page from Country Homes magazine
was just perfect for framing.
Tracy Porter snow girl cookie jar from Target
Fairy tea light by Fenton Glass
Cute elephant Christmas ornament was a gift
from my daughter a few Christmases ago.
Winter is the time for comfort,
for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand
and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home.
Thank you for stopping by. ~Clara
