We've had a few rainy days here, the kind that make you want to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea.
We spent our anniversary out and about yesterday, just the two of us. Breakfast at our favorite place, a rare book store in Kennett Square, Afternoon Tea at Special Teas in Chadds Ford. A few antique shops, lots of conversation, and a steak dinner.
The food was delicious at Special Teas and it is such a pretty tea room. They also have a nice gift shop.
Today, I am taking the tree down. This tree drank water for weeks, but stopped this past week and it is dry. It's time, sadly.
The girls have asked for us to keep lights up though so I am going to leave some garlands hanging for a while. Since the garlands are all artificial its doable.
I had the teapot ornament already but found the two cup ornaments at a local shop. One matches the tea pot perfectly!
Its still raining here so I brewed a cup of Darjeeling and feel fortified to get the rest of the days work accomplished.
As much as I love decorating for Christmas, I love the way the house looks clean and fresh when the Christmas decor is put away.
What about you? Is Christmas put away for the year or do you leave it out through Epiphany? Longer?
Thank you for all your kind best wishes yesterday!
