Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




Happy to report ghosts, goblins, witches, black cats, bats....
they all stayed away from Rose Tea Cottage.

It is now time to sit down and enjoy a nice cup of tea, please join me.

That is just what I need, a cup of tea. What a stressful day. Thank you so much for serving today. I love the little cookies with the cherry centers. How devine are they, and I see you brought out your best china. For me? Thank you sweetie.

Stop by soon. I have missed you. Country hugs, Sherry

This cup of delicious tea hits the spot.

Oh Duchess I gracefully accept tea with you, it is wonderful to sit and visit and just rest, and reflect upon the passing last couple of weeks. My how time sure does go by so quickly if you sit and think back to the previous days that past. Life seems to move so quickly taking a moment to wish a friend a wonderful blessings is delightful.

Blessings to you my friend, I enjoyed tea with you.

Have a wonderful week, and I hope your dad is doing well.

Hugs,
Heidi

Pauline said...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hello Sweet Duchess!
I just wanted to drop a line back over to you. You asked about my Fall(ish) blog. No Heidi Girl is not behind it. I have not shared with anyone what I do for a living. I am an IT Specialist. I designed my blog. I just haven't had the time to spend as much time on it as I would like to of late, but I am trying. It is starting to take the look that I want it to have. But no, my sweet Heidi Girl did not design my blog. I did.

I love it, and I have another idea for Christmas. Sometimes when I get home after 10-12 hour days on the computer, I don't feel like designing, but I have suddenly gotten a burst of energy. I haven't slept well since Amy passed away and I am finding a lot of energy that needs to be spent, so I am working on my blog. I am thrilled that you like it though. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

Mimi said...

We had so many little trick or treaters, I again RAN out of goodies!!!! Had to hurry and turn off all the lights inside and out!!! I did not want to upset any!!! I think because it was on a Sat. night, they stayed out Late!!!!Glad you had a fun time and drank some tea!!!!
Hugs to you my dear,
jamie

Vicki said...

Hello, dear Duchess,
I am glad you made it quite safely through Halloween. The same can be said for me here at Bunny Cottage. I only had a few little trick or treaters. I think parents are reluctant to let their children out and about anymore. I would love to have tea with you today. Please come and join me when you have the opportunity because I am serving tea today, too. Sending sweet autumn blessings your way! Vicki

Sher said...
