Tea for Two in my sweet retreat

Today, I took some time off from work to curl up in my cozy nook and catch up on some reading. I am yearning to see and feel the sunshine upon my face again someday soon. The rain pelting down on my 8ft x 24ft teeny tiny retreat's metal roof reminds me that it may be weeks till that happens again, after all I do live in Washington State.

 The cold and wet January weather just screams the words "comfort food" to me. Cupcakes happen to be at the top of my comfort food list and seem even better when paired with a cup of delicious loose leaf tea. Just what I need, on this cold rainy stay inside the house kind of day. 


With February just around the corner I decided to pull out some of my Valentine fancies to spice up my little retreat. Glad you took the time to stop by. Come on in, pull off yer boots and join me for a cup of hot Organic Cinnamon tea and a delish Vanilla Bean crème filled little cake. Enjoy.........

Christmas Wishes ........

 Happy, happy, happy (as Phil, from Duck Dynasty would say) Christmas shout out to friends, family and followers. Bet you wouldn't know that a white lace, shabby-chic, fru fru, doily and tutu loving gal would also love pearl handle 22's and other big pink guns and camouflage clothing and yes, the "Duck Dynasty" show. Ok, that is another blog post. My tiny retreat, and girl cave reflects just one side of my many likes, moods and styles. Today being Christmas Day, I am sharing some pictures of Christmas Breakfast and holiday trimmings in my tiny home. This year I used simple and free holiday décor that nature provided just outside my door. Come inside my 8' x 24' tiny house and enjoy some warm bread pudding with me.





Delicious Organic apples do double duty by adding a pop of color for the holidays




Greenery tucked into crannies is a frugal and free way to invite holiday charm into your home




A lone pinecone sitting on my tea box




A sprig of Holly sipping water along side a soy candle surrounded by a vintage cookie cutter




"WISH" is a word that evokes much thought and is my Christmas & New Year's theme




Wishes & Wishbones - Wishing you a very Merry Christmas




What is your wish for the new year?




Nature provided perfect ornaments for my tiny house this year





The Wishmas Tree topped with a simple twine bow & a wishbone




Big wishes from a tiny house




And now, breakfast is served




Yum....Fresh baked bread pudding & Pink Champagne




Christmas breakfast on my sweet little chippy farm table




Thanks Laura for the wonderful homemade cookies that are kept safely under the cloche




My favorite piece in my tiny house - My chandy from Spain, dressed for Christmas




Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. May all your wishes come true



Be blessed,
xoxo

'Twas the night before Christmas in my tiny house

Simple decorations adorn my tiny house this year. Nature provided a branch that seemed to me to be a perfect little tree that was just the right size to drink up the water from a small mason jar. Greenery from Cypress and Pine trees as well as Holly that grows on my land, lends a holiday touch to the shelves, nooks and the crannies of my little abode. Soy candles provide a safe warm and romantic glow. Please join me this Christmas eve. Come inside and take a peek at my little shabby chic tiny retreat.
