It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...
~The house is decorated and the outside lights went up yesterday.
~I certainly haven't finished my shopping, but I know what I want to gift each person on my list.
~I want to "treat" myself to a new Nativity scene. Growing up I had one with a lit background for the stars. I would like one in that style again. I've been looking on amazon.
~I've cut out some new cookie recipes from HGTV magazine and Southern Living. I really want to try and bake the red velvet cake featured on the December issue of Tea Time Magazine. I look forward to a big baking day soon.
After teacup collecting, ornaments are second on my list of favorite collectibles. I love glass ornaments! I also look for ornaments while on vacation and each Christmas we choose an ornament that represents something/s that happened to us during that particular year.
I'm trying to add more tea related ornaments to my collection. This one was gifted to me three years ago. (Funny how the tree lights show up prominently in the photos.)
I purchased this last Christmas on the Royal Albert website. It's Old Country Roses, but it's no longer made in England. (They are currently having a sale on ornaments.)
While these ornaments are not tea related, they are made by the same potteries as our beloved teaware:
Nollig Shona (Merry Christmas in Gaelic Irish) Bell
Royal Tara China
Do you have any tea related ornaments?
Happy Tea Time,
