For several years I would host a Christmas tea. It was a fun time to renew friendships and enjoy lunch together.

My sweet mother in love has been such a wonderful example to me when it comes to Hospitality. She is a most gracious hostess and she welcomes everyone that passes through her doorpost. I am thankful today for the gift of Hospitality. When we open our homes, we open our hearts.

Please join Kim at Shabby Pink and Pretty as she hosts Tea Things Tuesday. It is always a delight as the other ladies show their beautiful tea wares. I always enjoy visiting with them, sharing a cup of tea and enjoying their sweet hospitality :-)

Hi Jocelyn,
Your tea looks wonderful. How fun you could do this. So nice that you had a good example in your mother-in-law and that you took advantage of the opportunity to learn from her. Happy Tea Things Tuesday!

Ok, fess up, which one of those ladies in that picture is you? Or are you the photographer? The table looks lovely, and I would so enjoy being a part of it! I wish I had heard of that endearment, "mother-in-love", a few years ago, because my MIL was such a sweetie and would have loved being called that! Sadly she has passed away, and I really miss her!
