The Maryland Chapter of the Tasha Tudor Museum Society's December Gathering was held at Dollie's Tea Room in Clear Spring, MD today. Here I am getting ready to leave with my basket containing my handmade gift for the gift exchange and folders for the three new members joining us today. . . .
Gaily decorated for Christmas, the Tea Room was one large room with windows across the front which made for a lovely setting in which to hold our Tasha Tudor Christmas party. There were several shelves of tea paraphernalia and vintage displays for us to peruse afterwards, as well as tea for sale. . . .
Edie got that honor and chose the package that contained a hand-made ornament along with tea, flavored sugar, and some chocolate from Debra. . . .tutorial I found on the Internet. . . .
By #6 no one had chosen that large package, so I convinced Karen to choose it because I knew no one wanted to be the one to take the BIG one! Plus, I was #8 and if it was still there it would look bad for me to choose it when there was just one person left after me. As it turns out Karen has always wanted a wreath for her door and has never had one! The a boxwood wreath came from Louise. . . .
We had an enjoyable afternoon talking about Tasha Tudor. Jean brought this Christmas card with Tasha Tudor's drawing to show us, along with a delightful story of how she came to have it. . . .
Thank you Dollie's Tea Room for the lovely setting and food for our Tasha Tudor Christmas celebration!
