Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




I thank you all for an incredible year

May your glass be ever full

May the sun shine for you all day long
May everything go right, and nothing wrong

May you always have laughter to cheer you,
those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire before you!

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you!

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light
May good luck pursue you each morning and night


May you have love that never ends,
lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
and may God send many blessings to you!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Sweetie...
It has been a wonderful year in 2009 and I can't wait to see what 2010 brings to each of us.

We have so much to be thankful for. You Daddy got his halo off, and things are looking up for him. You are feeling better, and back to having tea at half past 4. Sweetie we are on the road to a good 2010.

I thank you for your friendship. You have always popped by when I needed you most. I don't know how you knew, but I thank you for your visits, your kind words, and your friendship. You are a dear.

I love the cookies, champagne and tea today. Duchess sweetie, they are just devine, like YOU.

Here's wishing you happiness, love, prosperity, peace and good health.

Country hugs and so much love sweetie...Sherry

Hi Duchess,
You have indeed changed my life...thankfully for the better ,it was a bit hit and miss, but now in my stride of complete English Eccentricism with the emphasis on the trick I am upright and walking proudly.
What fun awaits us in 2010, I think this will be the escapism that so many of us have been craving, the only drawback is I'm also having to do this for real but I'm finding mirrors work so well.
My eternal gratitude to you ,tune into renaissancegrace.com live from 14th Feb to see your world come into being.
Take care my dear and mind the ice.Susanxx
