Last year I shared this lovely tea bread
from a recipe I saw on  Lynn Bean's Blog 
so I am sharing it again.  I baked this
 one yesterday on Thanksgiving Day.

I enjoyed getting out some red
transferware yesterday to begin the
 Christmas decorating.
We saw the most beautiful Holly with
red berries a few weeks back in St. Louis
in front of a business.   I wish I had some
 in my yard.  It was all 
I could do to stop
myself from cutting some of it.

I love this older Victoria 
Magazine book
for Christmas .  It is
fun to just sit here by
the fire and read.

I hope you can join me today 
and share 
a tea time posting
from your blog below.
I am also sharing at:

Hi Bernideen, your orange cranberry bread looks delicious! Tea room delicious! Your 3 tiered stand is perfect with the holly and all, did Keith make that one too? :) I would love to look at your Victoria book, maybe if you could bring it along on our trip to Clarksville I could look at it on the way there and back. Your red transferware looks so nice on your cabinet shelves.I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving day yesterday. Talk to you soon!

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

And...thanks for hosting!

Oh Bernideen,
I am in love with your pink display shelf filled with pink transferware. Oh your Mason's Vista teapot and creamer are on my wish list. Everything looks amazing as does your Orange Cranberry loaf. Blessings Sweet Bernideen, Karen

Bernideen, love those pretty tea things! My link photo is of a little tea I recently gave in the corner of my kitchen. I hope all your readers will get in on the giveaway of the lovely Le Creuset 3-tier stand in their choice of 8 colors. Thank you for hosting.

PS Bernideen, I forgot to mention that the giveaway *can* be for non-US residents as well, as long as they have it sent to someone in the US. So it's perfect for someone who has US residents on their gift list.

Love your beautiful red transferware, Bernideen! The red is so festive for Christmas. How I would enjoy a piece of your tea bread. It looks absolutely scrumptious covered in the glaze and cherries on top. Who could resist? Hope you're enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend. I don't have a post this week but wanted to stop by and say Hello.

Good Evening Bernideen, I cannot share in your party, but I just wanted to say I adore your red transfer ware... it is stunning.
Your bread looks delicious and how perfect, to drink tea from a beautiful teacup and saucer, with a delicious piece of bread on a beautiful teaplate whilst relaxing by the fire. perfect.
Best Wishes to you.

I love your red transfer ware , as you know. Everything looks so pretty and I love to look at your hutch. I wish you lived closer as I have holly everywhere. It went nuts this year and looks so pretty. There is something about holly.
Love looking at everyone's posts. Starting to return to blogging and it is nice. Much love to you!
