High Tea – Merry Christmas!

with 16 comments

This is my Christmas post and I’d like to wish you all, dear readers and fellow bloggers, a peaceful and relaxing Holiday time ❤  Thank you so much for reading my posts, your likes and comments. I’ve made quite a few friends this year, just through blogging, it’s wonderful 🙂

So.. High Tea. It’s a bit like High Noon with cakes!  A tradition in my family – and I am really not sure which country it belongs to – but we set the table for tea in the afternoon. It’s generally the days after Christmas as nobody can manage to eat anything else after our gargantuan dinner and we all collapse on the sofa bemoaning our overpacked stomachs and attempt to thrash each other at cards.

There’s generally Christmas pud, all sorts of cake goodies, crackers to pull and read the daft notices from, and a huge pot of tea!  Goodness, did I have trouble finding virtual Christmas crackers but thankfully Faith blogged them and [CIRCA] saved my table from disintegrating into family disapproval.

Another excuse for a massive decorating spree!

After quite a while in our lovely Redgrave ‘Luton Manor’ house, Arrchie n me decided to get a new one for the autumn/winter season – after a huge amount of saving up and restraining ourselves on the clothing front!

We rezzed the reBourne ‘Lake House’ last week and are enjoying decorating it. This sits in a skybox with many pictorial surrounds but you can also rez it on the ground. We decided to skybox it under our platform and make the platform into a huge garden with lake. Arrchie also has a small holding there which I’ll do a post for all on it’s own because I’m proud of his work on it.

Here’s the lounge just started. Out of all rooms in a house if you’ve got a lounge and a bedroom done, then the rest can be achieved gradually.

Furniture – Shutter Field, Zerkalo, La Galleria, Dreamscapes

Upstairs we were testing the bath in a highly PG manner! This is ensuite into a beautiful bedroom which we’ve just started to get the main pieces of furniture in and it’ll be a fusion of eastern and boho styling. I do find the wooden flooring and softer coloured walls of this house pleasing when in real life it is bogging down outside and colder than you’d expect for August.

Furniture – reBourne, Cheeky Pea, Dutchie, GDit Decor

Just in case you’re all thinking I’ll be doing no work for ages – well here is the desk!! I’ve always loved this desk by Cheeky Pea. OK, it’s sculpt and a bit primmy but so, so comfortable. Haven’t seen another desk set that would take its place.

That’s all for now.
Cheers, m’dears!
