Tea Things Tuesdays

Hello everyone~ Today I am once again joining Kim @ Shabby, Pink, and Pretty for Tea Things Tuesdays.
What could be nicer than a hot cup of tea on a cold day?

I love teacups and teapots and I have just a few of them! I also have this little miniature tea set which Hubby got me a while ago. I am saving it for a little granddaughter, should one come along some day.
For Tea Things Tuesdays, I decided to share something a little different. I thought the tea set would be cute on the Christmas tree this year, so I have glued the china together and tied on ribbon for hanging them. I chose a glue that will be no problem to remove.
Love the tea pot.Ooops! This is just another little teacup on the tree which isn't a part of the set, but thought I would share it with you too.

I will share my little teacup Christmas tree too. It is just a miniature tree which I have decorated with pink beads and rhinestones and set in one of my Rose Chintz teacups, for those of you who haven't seen it before.

Now, let's sit and have a cup of tea after all that, shall we? This little snack set I got last summer in a little shop at the hospital while I was visiting my mother.
I have never seen one of these before so of course I had to have one; especially since it is red! It goes very well with my red teapot and sugar bowl. I love shortbread with tea this time of year, don't you?Thank you for coming by today and I hope you all have a wonderful day. Be sure to stop and have a cup of tea during your hectic schedule. It will do wonders to relieve your stress level!
This will be my last post for Tea Things Tuesdays as Kim will be stopping the parties next week. My son will be home next week so I won't be participating. I would like to wish each of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours...

  4. Hi Sandi,

  6. Lovely just lovely. All you have shared!
    Now I need to find me a couple of those pretty red tea sets of the cup and plate.
    I have been on a shopping 'diet' per say these may just become my
    'hunt' for 2010.

  7. Hi Sandi!
    So nice to have you come by and thanks for your sweet comments on my decorating!

    We are indeed kindred spirits! I LOVE anything tea and esp your Rose Chintz!!!

    Have a blessed week!

  8. Sandi, I love your mini tea set, and it was a great idea to put each piece on the tree! I have them on my tree, too, and love them. And your red toile set is beautiful, too, and the cookies look pretty good as well!

    I agree, nothing can relieve the stresses of busyness like stopping for a cup of tea...there's just something so soothing about it. I'd love to have a cup with you, and enjoy looking at the Christmas tree, with all of its pretty decorations...perfect moments!

    Hope you have a wonderful day, Sandi...God bless!
