Antique Postcard for December 2nd, Country Diary December

My antique postcard for December 2nd is...

This darling one from 1905...
So cute!

As it is December now...amazing! I have been reading...or rather, re-reading my favorite Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden which sits by my sunroom tea chair. I love her observations and lovely drawings. I posted a photo on my Facebook page and a friend commented....imagine what she would have accomplished if she hadn't died so young. A very talented young lady!

Besides her drawings and diary of everyday occurrences she shares poetry, mottoes and some humorous observations as well. A complete joy!

I found this recently on Pinterest, and have added it to the blog. I love it! Don't know the artist, there was no ID or link.
Perfect for a tea time blog for Christmas!

Enjoy your day and have a cuppa with a friend!

  2. I love the stacked teacups with the "Joy" teabag too! It would make the perfect Christmas card. Thanks for the visit. So glad that you liked my tea-themed tree.
