First , let me explain the music you are hearing. I am of polish dsecent with my paternal grandparent's coming over from Poland. I grew up with my parents, aunts and uncles singing Polish Christmas Carols during the Holiday season and hearing them in church. The song playing is one that I remember my Dad singing with all of his heart and I was lucky enough to find it on Playlist so I wanted to share a bit of my childhood with you!
And now I would like you to cast a vote for me...please click HERE to read..
For Tea Tuesday in Blogland, I finally got a chance to do a Christmas Teascape using a set of dishes that I bought at our Church Flea Market in the Spring. There was only a place setting for 2 but I loved the look of them as they reminded me of the Era of Charles Dicken's and I thought they would be cute to use for the Holidays.
Since I bought them, I have seen them in many others posts and in various colors also.
Here is my Christmas Teascape!
It is just a simple one as I am not that great at tablescapes nor can I keep my Dining Room table set as we eat on it every day.
I bought the dishes at our church flea market in the Spring as I mentioned . In the summer, at a yard sale, I found the matching Tea Pot for $2.00.
Did I mention that all the dishes were 25 cents each!
This is a stunning card made by my sweet friend Ginger! Please check out her wonderful blog @ GLITTER AND ROSES
I used a few pieces of my Ruby Red depression glass and my red transferware....
These are cookies made by my dear friend, Ann Marie , who is the best baker I know!
I think they are just too pretty to eat!
The red silverware was bought on clearance at a local Super Market after the summer holidays....
I love the different patterns on each plate....
Very Charles Dicken's like I think....
Love the pattern on the Tea Pot....
And here are the tea cup and saucer...
The "cakes" are ornaments from J.C. Penney's this year....
These cup cake candles ( the candle is inside ) are from Kohl's this year...
Love this card from a good friend, Maryann..
Had to take these pics quickly as the candy from the dish was disappearing fast......
Well, that is my Christmas Teascape!

I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart
I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

Can I come over for a spot of tea? Your table looks so pretty, set for two! I agree, those cookies are miniature works of art, not to be eaten. You must have been so pleased to find the teapot that matches your dishes. The Christmas countdown has begun ... it'll soon be upon us! Hugs!ReplyDelete
What a Christmas wonderland you have created!ReplyDelete

What a lovely dinner setting! Very festive and your Church sale dishes are a fabulous find! The tea cups are wonderful, and how I love the images on the plates! Especially the clock! What a thrill it must have been for you to spot that tea pot at a garage sale!ReplyDelete
I wish you the merriest of Christmases, may you be surrounded by loving family and happy memories.
