Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 252, our last Tea Party of 2014! Hope your Christmas holidays were wonderful. For our family, it was the best we have had in years. My son has shown so much improvement, my husband was well and the girls and grandchildren were amazing. Some of us ended the week with bad colds, other than that, God was so good to us. We have so much to be grateful for.
Now I face the chore of removing the Christmas items. I chore I do not like. Things look so empty when Christmas is put away. It always gets me in the mood to clean (I hate that mood!). We do what we must. I will start this week. I realized I never showed you my Christmas Tree, so you get to see that today. I used crystal punch cups, decorated with Christmas Pins as well as vintage ornaments collected over the years. I will also share some Christmas cups and mugs before they all get put away another year. I feel good that I may have added less than I gave away as far as Christmas decor. Always a good feeling for someone who others, not me, consider I have a little too much stuff.
I will start with this very vintage Christmas mug. It is German and I just love to decorate with it at Christmas. I don't let people use it because, it is old and I don't want anything to happen to it.
The next cup is fairly new, it is a Mikasa. Holly is always perfect for Christmas cups.
This last cup is a small set, called "A Cup of Christmas Tea." It has the Teapot to match.
I am also including some Christmas memories made this year.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Terri and her son. Wishing you a safe and wonderful New Year! Hugs, Martha
