Saturday~Sunday~Monday

Oh my , I know it is late Monday night, some places it is already Tuesday but I did want to say hello. Hope you had a happy weekend. My weekend was happy ~ busy. Saturday Lisa and I went for Christmas Tea. Everything was so yummy. Each guest chooses their own tea cup and tea from a huge variety of teas. We weren't feeling adventures and had our favorite Earl Grey. Besides the tea they serve such delicious sweets and savories, and they have darling hats to wear and you feel very festive. Today we wore our own hats....Lisa is wearing a hat that her grandmother wore as a young woman and mine is one I bought at an antique shop. After tea we did just a touch of Christmas shopping, I love hats, but no I didn't wear my hat shopping. Sunday morning my honey and I met our friends bright and early for the WX Peddlers Faire. Oh it was so cold......but we were all bundled up, and still had a great time. Here are my treasures for the day........

I had decided to just buy Christmas items. I found some neat treasures to add to my collections, but the best find was some wonderful vintage purple garland and small ornaments for Lisa...she loves purple and loved both the garland and ornaments.

Today was busy doing all the things you do for a birthday celebration. I can't tell you what's for dinner that's a surprise but this is the cake I baked for my friend. I hope she likes it.

Good night or good morning to you depending where you live. May Tuesday be a bright and shiny day for you....Linda
