36th, 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday', New Year:

Welcome to....

36th,  Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of
the year: "Give me a light that I may tread
safely into the unknown!"  And he replied: 
"Go out into the darkness and put your hand
into the hand of God. That shall be to you
better than a light and safer than a known way."

A warm winter's welcome to all of you who have gathered for a cup of cheer today, whether it be tea, coffee, mulled cider (wine) or hot chocolate. I trust that you had a wonderful Christmas and look with anticipation to the new year. Let's sit awhile and catch up the events we best loved the last few weeks.  For me, it was having my daughter home from the East coast, sharing time with my son and fiance and the numerous phone calls from my son and his fiance from the West coast.

As I begin this new year there are many unknowns for me. We have decided, with heavy hearts that we must move from our home of only three years. Alot of time and energy and dreams have been invested in this house to make it our home but life changes and we must adapt.  Now complete, it is time to hand it over to some one else to enjoy and look for our next venture.

The new year has always been a time of closet and cobweb cleaning for me but this will be more extensive as I stage the house and start packing.  Don't worry my luvs, no teacup will be left behind, but evenually there will be fewer and fewer to share on Tuesday.  So TTTT may have a different flavour as the weeks go by.  I don't know how that may look at the moment.  We will both be surprised I am sure, but tea will always be served and your attendence most welcome.

I hope you will enjoy one of my favorite postings:

    Such beauties you are showing us here again, they are absolutely gorgeous.
    As to moving away from your house: my motto is: one door closes, but there are such wonderful surprises behind the new door that you will open up.
    Bon courage in leaving your safe and know place behind and starting on a new adventure.
    Happy day!
