  1. Especially love the gift sets from Fortnum & Mason! I am always a fan of their wonderful packaging. By January I am ready to purge my pantry of these treats which my be too sweet or too salty, but for the holidays -- such fun!

  3. When we winterized our home to retire into one thing we included was what some call a trunk room off the kitchen. Others call it a pantry. I keep my household tools there, she stores extra dishes, pots, pans, vases and all sorts of useful and occasionally used picnic, pet and holiday items like those shown. Everyone who visits wants to see what's in there for some reason. It's like a treasure house to them, I suppose.

  4. I highly recommend Russian Earl Grey by Twinings You can't get it in the US, so I purchase boxes of it when I'm overseas or order it directly from Twinings. Super yummy with a bit of honey. Love winter!

    1. Don't think so. The one in an old red salt-box colonial at 45 Wall Street closed some years ago. It was a great place for lunch or tea, and offered a nice selection of gifts from England.
