2015--a year in review

Happy New Year's Eve!  On this last day of 2015, I thought I would go back and recap my favorite posts from this year, especially since I've enjoyed other bloggers' recaps.  So for a bit of photography, poetry, and parties, let's begin!

January:  First snow, "in the bleak midwinter, long ago..."  ~Christina Rossetti

February:  February Tea, a beautiful purple and tea! themed cake for my birthday

March:  Mardi Gras Tea Party, letting the good times roll with gold and green glass

April:  Daisies and an Old Mill, featuring one of my cottage sets and bunnies

May:  Ile de la Cite, the second of my posts from this year's France trip

June:  Roses, Nostalgia, and Tea, with my first tea set and pretty apron, both gifts from my grandmother

July:  An Afternoon Tea in Paris, my first foray into French macarons and a tea for a new meetup group...this is also one of my favorite pictures from this year's blog

August:  Tea in the Plains, a visit to Crest Hill Antiques and Tea Room

September:  Opequon Presbyterian Church's Aloha Tea, arranged by my aunt at her church in Winchester, VA

October:  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, the first post from my trip October trip to Orlando, Florida...I had a hard time choosing between this one and the post from Diagon Alley at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (the post that follows this one)

November:  Chrysanthemum tea, from 2015's flower of the month post series, and featuring dried chrysanthemum pretty when brewed

December:  A Christmas brunch, with my kitchen sweets tree in the background, and featuring white chocolate peppermint cupcakes and gingerbread
