Merry Christmas!


The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Teacup Thursday: Royal Albert Heirloom Pattern


I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. 
~Charles Dickens

Here's a few pictures of our beloved Royal Albert Teapot and Teacup - Heirloom Pattern! It is so beautiful, but sadly the camera has never been able to capture it's splendor to the fullest!! I took many pictures this morning, but to no avail... these were the only two that were somewhat suitable! Maybe I should ask Santa for a new camera!!
Wishing all of our dear Tea Friends a very Merry Christmas!!!

Teacup Thursday!

With a Grateful Heart

Thank you to every one on Facebook who sent up prayers for Donna's Dad -- and Miss Spenser's English Grandpa!! (His English heritage is far back...but with a last name like Cherryholmes...well, we like to pretend it's recent! smiles). On Saturday morning, Grandpa had a mild heart attack. The doctors did a lot of testing and scans of his heart; they have changed a few meds, sent him home with a new diet, and more exercise...so hopefully, things will be okay!

A special "heart" thank you to all the heart doctors out there...medicine has certainly come a long way; we are so very grateful for that!!

Thought we'd share with you today a lovely photo-art that Zachary Hardin took. Notice how the handles refect a heart shape.  

Again thank you for all your 'heart-felt' concerns and prayers, they were very much appreciated! He's the best grandpa (and dad) that any one could ask for...we are blessed. Praying for many more happy and healthy years! Love you Grandpa!!

Teacup Thursday: "St. Nick's Tea Party"


"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and
behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." 
~Norman Vincent Peale


Here's pictures of our little St. Nick's Teaparty! These are the new teacups that we received from our blogger friend Linda! Along with the teacups she mailed us this pretty pop-up card and yummy mashmallow cakes. Again thank you Linda for your thoughtfulness!

How did you celebrate St. Nick's Day?

Happy Saint Nick's Day!

"'Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung
by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas
soon would be there..."

Happy St. Nick's Day!! We are having fun celebrating by sipping some hot tea out of our new teacups and enjoying some festive Tunnock's Tea Cakes all sent to us by our sweet Blogging Friend Lady Linda! Thank you so much, what a pleasant surprise to find in our mailbox!!  I'll be posting a picture of our lovely teacups on Thursday! So be watching!
