I’m baking cranberry scones today and enjoying a pomegranate

I’ll pour the tea, and you have a choice between

Apple Spice and Island Breeze?

Go ahead and pour yourself a cup while I serve us some warm Cranberry and Almond Scones.

Now that you have your tea and scones, come and sit with Sandi at her Tea Time Tuesday blog.

 

“Lord”, I give thanks today for the sun and the moon, for friends and family here at home on the Island and away in North Carolina and Ottawa.  Watch over them and keep them safe as they travel the roads.  I’m blessed to have such a lovely group of people join in our cookies exchange.  Wishing for everyone to be warmed by their fire this season. 

Enjoy your tea and your day,

Cindy

This Aunt Jemima brown bottle used to hold syrup at one time. Now it holds air and quiet a bit of memory based around Southern Hospitality, Mammy, Hoe Cakes, Quaker Oats and Paula Deen (back in the news)  The story and history is very interesting around Aunt Jemima in the advertisement sector, however I’m not impressed with the amount of advertisement that Paula Deen has been getting. I have to wonder if her name was Paul Deen would she be pulled through this much mud.

Today for tea I’m enjoying Orange Spice loose tea, and Holland Windmill Cookies that a friend dropped off for me this week.  Orange Spice has been the favourite tea this week in Grandma’s Tea Room with a couple of guests.

This little spice jar was once my mother’s and at this time of year I put my orange spice tea in it at the table and enjoy a cup with memories.

This tea cup has a history, and a chip, I is now used as a candy dish

Don’t you just love the soft light that a candle gives off most of the time. I remember as a kid we went to bed with flashlights and we would scar the pants off each other making faces over the light of a flash light.  This photo brings that memory back as the candle highlights the pumpkin faces.

I made this barrette with little seed beads on a loom, the colours match perfectly.

 

We have ornamental grass in the back yard that is 12 feet high and I cut down some and added it to Pom-pass Grass to decorate the front door way.  In the Green House I have scarecrow that needs to come and stand by the door to finish my door decoration.

Have you started to decorate around the house?  This has got to be my most favourite time of year.  This week I’m going to try and get out for a drive with my camera and bring you back some driveway decorating that I’ve found.

I looked for an appropriate quote, suggestion or poem and just couldn’t find one for the mix at this time of year.  However I did find this statement and it brought a smile to my pumpkin.

I’ll be joining Sandi as she hosts HOME, a party where recipes, crafts, decor, family and fun come together. I made her Cottage Apple Cake and Sauce last week and everyone in my home enjoyed it very much.  My son-in-law is not a fan or cooked apples so I made this recipe with peaches for him yesterday as Mondays are my day to cook for the busy farmers.  I also made a savory stew and cheesy scalloped potatoes.

Today is all mine! Looks like it might be a day for scrapbooking.

Have a wonderful day, 

Cindy
