I hope you will excuse our recent absence from The Tearoom. Real Life called us away and we spent several weeks in Colorado visiting the family of Mr. V and our friends there. But we have now returned and holiday preparations are in full swing! And yours?
Today, we make a triumphant return by participating in the collage challenge at Collage Obsession! The ladies there have given us the prompt of "Black Dress" this week. And since Victorienne is so glad to be back in her home, having tea in front of the fire, wandering the dusty old attic looking for things to make presents and decorations from, helping us to make treats and decorate The Tearoom for guests, such as yourselves, it is only fitting that she should be allowed her other favorite indulgence, dressing up, and be featured in today's collage!
And here she is, dressed in black damask, with a very festive black rose headpiece! She is posing with her new friend Cerfie Blanc, the white dear she found wandering in the garden of The Tearoom and invited inside! Who would have thought deer liked tea so much! It makes him prance all over the room and we must be careful he does not wreck the carefully-placed Christmas decorations before everyone else has had a chance to be invited in to see them. (By the way, keep checking back for your invitation to our Christmas festivities!)
