IT IS BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!
Hi Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 143! The first tea of December and the beginning of the Christmas Holidays. I have been busy getting my home ready to welcome Christmas, my family and guests. Next week I will have my Annual Christmas Tea. We are going to be blessed with a visit from a touring choir. I am so excited about all the festive occasions we will be celebrating. I am one of those people who just love getting together with family and friends. I never get enough!
I will begin this week to give you a tour of the various Christmas Decorations around my home. This week I will start in the Entry. That great wreath was a re-do. I love buying simple wreaths and then making them my own. I love how it came out.
For my first Christmas Tea Cup I am sharing a Mikasa, CHRISTMAS HOLLY, with a footed cup. I love this china, I use Mikasa as my every day dishes. They are always so beautiful.
The second cup I am sharing is a Charltonware, Rouge Royale Teacup and Saucer with Gold, Burgundy and Brown Luster. It has a wonderful gold interior. I am especially fond of tea cups with all gold in side the cup. You feel so special drinking from it. Charltonware is a favorite of mine. You only get two this week, because I am not done with all my decorating. I hope to have the table set for the Tea Party next week you so can take a peek.
I have a Sophia up-date! Do you remember I told you that my new granddaughter, Sophia, was not very user friendly? I think after a year and a couple of months, she finally loves her Grandma. She skipes me and tells her Mother, she wants to see her Grandma. I just had to share that, I worked long and hard for that. I watched her the other night and we had a perfect time together. She kissed me and hugged me, yes, Sophia, did all that. I wasn't dreaming. It was a Christmas Miracle! I had to share! Sophia loves me! Can it get any better than that?
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. I know you are all filled with Holiday decoration plans. Please try and stop by for a visit at these wonderful ladies homes. Don't forget my dear friend Terri, she always enjoys your visits, as do I.
God Bless you! Martha
