Autumn in the air and a home full of comfort and cheer
In a home filled with traditions , I have come up with one of our own. Having read many of Tasha Tudors books, one lovely tradition that I knew I wanted to follow was 4pm tea. She would gather her little ones through all the Seasons and have them sitting at her side while they all had tea and cake or sandwiches. My Mom comes every Wednesday afternoon for our Tasha Tudor tea. Brogan bakes up a storm and we drink out of our best tea cups. After tea, we either read to the children or we play a game. We are loving it.. I have also set up our Autumn nature table. Just a little reminder of a sleepy season around the corner. Marie from http://softearthart.blogspot.com sent the lovely hanging and the root childrens Mommy. I love having little pieces of homemade treasures people have made in my home. I have also organised a section in my kitchen where I have placed every ones Winter beanies, gloves, scarves and boots. We have our badger range of sniffles ointments and chamomile rubs...All ready for the cold. To bring in a little cheer, I have discovered a World of lovely Cafe' music. It is the "Putumayo" collection. It brings in such a lovely vibe. I play it in the kitchen all day..Enough to transport me to romantic Cafe's all over the world. So, dear Friends. Just a little snippet of whats going down in the little meadow...
Happy weekend to all~
