  3. What a wonderful tribute to Christmas, tea, and Colonial Williamsburg. I have a friend who has a sister who lives nearby, and they visit every time they are on the east coast, usually about twice a year. Seeing it through your eyes has made it special.

    Although all the photos were wonderful, I really enjoyed the traveling tea cup mosaic. It certainly made me smile, and of course when Mr. M put it back in its box. It has certainly traveled well this year.

    Thanks for sharing your birthday photos from Williamsburg and tea with us for T this week. And I would be remiss if I didn’t wish you and Mr. M. a very happy, safe, and joyous Christmas.
