And with oak trees
come an abundance of acorns!
Squirrels scurry about to
gather their store for the winter months,
but I, too, like to gather a few of these
icons of autumn for a festive natural touch.
Autumn is when I like to use one of my
favorite teapots with its acorn finial.
And white linen napkins embroidered
with acorns and rusty brown oak leaves.
The current arctic blast pushing
cold temps as far down as the southern states
has us enjoying a cozy fire in the living room.
And these little gingerbread acorn bites
are the perfect addition for afternoon tea.
I've set out two cups
with the hope that you will join me.
Care for a bit
of sugar with your tea?
This little hand carved box
is one of the treasures I found
on my recent trip to Paris.
I don't use sugar in my tea, but couldn't
leave these petite sugar packages behind.
from favorite Paris Tea Salons,
especially when served in the antique French box.
