Last tea party of 2014

I didn't post much of Christmas this year, but I hurried to put together a little tea party for the last Tuesday of the year.
 

I tried to keep it silver, gold, and white
...an arrangement used throughout the Christmas season, with the addition of a clock ornament..
Some mercury glass plates.. with silver Lenox napkin rings...
Let us enjoy the last hours of the year, and look forward to 2015!
Thanks to SANDI for her gracious hosting all through the seasons.

In Preparation....

It's a lovely, sunny day here in Manitoba...cold, but bright.
Yesterday was a very fun day as my daughter, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, and myself had an afternoon of baking...in preparation for the Christmas season.
The cookie cutters came out....
  
We had a good laugh when my mixer, which tends to start at a fast speed, created a mini snow storm on the counter!
It all calmed down though, and peppermint fudge was well mixed...
 
Granddaughter did a fine job of decorating her sugar cookies...
Our busy schedule didn't leave time to enjoy a cup of tea at the end of our baking marathon, but each went home with cookie tins filled with fudge, shortbread, sugar cookies, butterscotch squares, lemon snowballs, and pecan tassies.

For Tea Time Tuesday, hosted by Sandi of Rose Chintz Cottage, would you join me for a cup of tea with a chocolate truffle? We will use Lenox "holiday" china today.
