Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.   I had a great time with our family celebrations.  Now it’s time for a little rest and relaxation (and trying to lose this cold) before the New Year and another round of dinners and family birthday celebrations.  My three children and one of my two grandsons all have January birthdays.

It has been nice to spend quite a bit of time curled up in my warm jammies with a cup of tea and a good book.  I’ve read all four books in the Twilight series in the last couple of weeks (mostly out of curiosity) and found them to be entertaining, albeit far fetched.  Now I’ll concentrate on my Christmas books.  There is “Death At Buckingham Palace” and several new tea books.

I’ll have lots of new tea to enjoy while reading them.  My hubby gave me a case of PG Tips pyramid tea bags, plus a large box of London Cuppa.  I also have three tins of loose tea that came in my Martha Stewart Tea box – more about that later, plus various other small boxes of gift tea.

PC271165The Martha box contains Green, Earl Grey and Golden Assam.  I’m also enjoying my own Christmas ParTea blend from Adagio. 

PC291168This cute Lenox ornament was a little “after Christmas shopping” gift to myself.  It is perfect with the comfy chair holding a little mug of tea with cookies and a book.

Hi There~ So glad to hear that your Christmas was good, sorry to hear about the cold though... it's going around my house too. Wow, 4 January birthdays! That must have taken some creative budgeting all these years! Twilight! Yes, very far fetched, but very addictive. I loved the series, but the one thing I couldn't stand was how Bella was always being carried around like a child... that bugged. Ah well... like you say entertaining.
Thank you for sharing all of your tea ornaments, I meant to leave a comment about that earlier. Happy new year!

A CASE of PG Tips? Then I'd say you're good to go! I'm sorry to hear you still have that cold. Hope you shed it in time to enjoy the new year! And looking at all those new books and tea, I'd say you're set to have a good one. Happy New Year!

Oh, and that ornament is adorable and PERFECT for a tea lover at this time of year. Since it's mostly beige, I'd leave it out for New Year's!

Sounds like you have plenty of tea to keep you for a while. Love the ornament and the books!

I love a little after christmas splurging on yourself! That ornament is adorable.

Ah, Twilight...I decided to see what they were all about too last summer and to inspire my teenage daughter to read them since all her friends had. I was sucked in and found it entertaining but definitely unrealistic. Fun to dream though.

Happy New Year! Hope your year is filled with love! :)

That chair looks perfect to curl up in. With a tasty mystery, of course. All those PG Tips, what a husband!

What lovely gifts you received. I could just hop into your blog and join you all curled up in your PJ's with a nice cuppa. Hope you're up & feeling better soon. Happy New Year.

Oh! This ornament is so cute. I'm going to check out the leftover ornaments at local stores that carry Lenox and see if I can locate one for my 2010 tree!
