In the country the days are not only getting colder but looking outside the vibrant autumn colours of the gardens have turned to a dismal grey. Harvest season is almost behind us and soon we'll be changing out the Thanksgiving (in Canada we celebrated on October 14th) and autumn decor for Christmas (my favourite holiday time) decor, so it seemed fitting to take a cup of tea in the kitchen surrounded by three walls of windows - enjoying the autumn decor on the island.
I'll be steeping some wonderful Moroccan mint green tea in a cast iron teapot.
This little gadget is amazing for ensuring the tea is steeped in a timely manner...
This lovely was a gift from Mr. G a couple years ago and the blue, orange and yellow colours with leaf like scroll and petite little flowers, I thought was a good choice for saying good-bye to the gardens. This is made by Versace and is one of my favs. made it Italy. Don't you just love the gold winged handle?
To hold our treat for this tea - is a plate with a finger holster for easy holding. I am told it's a lemon plate - but I think it's wonderful for serving these amaretti cookies from the bakery.
Hugs and Blessings,
Stay in Step with High Heeled Life ...
