Tea Time Angels

I have two sweet tea angels. The first one was given to me by my sweet daughter.

She is actually called "Angel of the Kitchen" and she is serving up a cup of herbal tea for your enjoyment.

The "Angel of Hospitality" was given to me by some friends in memory of my BFF who passed away 7 years ago. My BFF was such an incredible hostess. Her door was always open and a pot of hot water ready for anyone who might stop by and join her for a cup of tea and some good conversation. She has been sorely missed.

As Christmas is approaching, I am unwrapping my lovely Christmas dishes.

I love serving on these "Happy Holidays" dishes.

Unfortunately, I do not have a teapot to match my Christmas dishes, but I saw this Winter time teapot and fell in love with it. I've added the sugar and creamer that are made in Poland.

During the holidays, I often find that Tea and memories go well together.

Hello Jocelyn,
Your Christmas china is very pretty and I love the tea pot! The winter scene reminds me of Currier and Ives. Such charming pieces. Thank you so much for joining my Christmas Tea today and I hope you have a blessed week.

Christmas hugs,

Hello Jocelyn
Both of your angels are beautiful, especially since they have a special significance for you.
The festive china is nice and in today's mix and match entertaining, the blue and white winter teapot is right at home.
Christmas and tea memories will be made again this year.

You have such lovely things! I have some Jim Shore figurines but not that angel. She is very sweet and I'm sure you think of your BFF with happy memories whenever you look at the angel.
