ATC: Winter Comforts "Being Cosy"

I've finished another ATC card.



The armchair, antimacassar and floral cushion and wallpaper suggest that a little old lady lives in this house, but she is a sparky old lady who likes cats and books.  Having been for a good stiff walk in the snow she's about to settle down with Pride and Prejudice and a nice cup of tea (it is just a little too early for a dry sherry).  She has just gone to fetch the biscuit tin.

  4. Yes, I can see in my imagination how she is looking for the bicuit tin a little in a hurry because she wants the tea not to get cold and read on and know more about the story. You did it beautifully!
