Happy New Year!!
This morning all is quiet in the mini house. Breakfast trays have been prepared and ready to be delivered to the overnight guests.
On New Year's Day it is a tradition in our house to try and do the things that make us happy.... and to try and avoid anything we do not intend to do all year.
For example. On New Year's Day we try and connect with many friends and family members, spend time on the boat, take a walk, do our hobbies etc.
We try not to do housework, laundry or shop, just in case we set the tone for the New Year!
Best wishes to all for a healthy and happy 2012.
Breakfast trays by my friend Elizabeth:
Jane Austen Tray: Named for the image of a lady of that era on the teapot. Note the tiny Chickadee bird on the back. E. made the tray, teapot, napkin, pot of cream and cherry tart. Created a flower arrangement in a bead vase, painted the plates and teacup.
Empire Tray: Made the tray, clock, bead jam pot, pat of butter, scones and napkin, painted the plates and teacup.
I think E. thought I should have a bed & breakfast miniature house when she made me these trays.
