Tartan and Tea

I've been out doing some Christmas shopping with by besties and last week I found a beautiful teapot.  I've actually been looking for this one for a couple years and was so happy to find it at Home Goods and for less than $10.    




Two matching mugs found their way home too.  My hubbie and I love tea and before Christmas I wanted to share my little tea tray.



Tartan and tea is a perfect combination on this
 cold wintery day!


Merry Christmas and Happy  New Years!

More Merry Christmas

Oklahoma City has quite a light display downtown in and around the Myriad Gardens.  The city opened the conservatory for viewing of the lights at night with free admission on certain evenings. 


Sunday evening we enjoyed the strolling through the gardens and the  feeling the excitement of the season.






Christmas lights bring out the kid in me!   
Hope you are enjoying this blessed season. 

  


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from our porch to yours!


  Enjoy the season of Christmas with those you love...I'll be headed down to the sunshine state after Christmas to ring in the New Year with our  family.   
Safe travels everyone!

It's Beginning...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Turkey Day is over and we spent the early afternoon in the yard putting up Christmas lights.  We ran out of strands (doesn't that always happen)  so will have to finish tomorrow after a trip to the store.  I refused to go to a big box store today.   Call me chicken,  but I didn't want to fight the crowds. 


Downtown Oklahoma City has come alive with the Christmas Spirit!  There is so much to do in the city this season that we thought we would take advantage of the  beautiful 70 degree afternoon.  We headed downtown to the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Conservatory before dinner. 


Located in the heart of the city the gardens now include an ice skating rink, carousel and delightful little pop up shops for holiday shoppers.  There is something for everyone! 






The Conservatory is full of tropical plants, waterfalls and butterflies.    My favorite is the centerpiece Christmas tree made of poinsettias-what could be more beautiful?




Red and pink amaryllis are blooming throughout the conservatory and I just love how beautiful they are!

line the walkways!


My youngest son made a video of our visit...enjoy!
