Wynter Days!!

                                                        With Winter upon us,
                                  it is nice to snuggle up with a nice pot of tea,
                                                       under a warm tea cozy,
                                        and ourselves under a warm blanket
                                                       to watch the snow fall!

                                       It is also a great time for bird watching!!
                                                          With this in mind,
                                          I have created two new Tea Wallets!

A beautiful red Cardinal surrounded by
Bittersweet Berries and Calligraphy Script!
The inside shows off two yellow Finches,
a yellow and grey print
and yellow and grey Dutch Design,
all in coordinating fabrics!
The second features two yellow Finches
surrounded by Bittersweet Berries
and Calligraphy Script.
The inside features a red Cardinal and yellow Finch,
burnt orange/red print
and taupe and cream flowers!
You may purchase these and many other items that I handcraft on ETSY at

       We all love "A Christmas Carol"  by Charles Dickens!

These Tea Wallets remind us of what Christmas used to be like in
the 19th Century; caroling at each house or street corner and the stringed ensembles and families playing songs to herald our Savior's birth!

                        I pray that you all will experience a blessed
                            and Christ centered Christmas!

                                     In Kind Regards,
