Show and Tell - Tea Time Tree

Time for Kelli's Show and Tell. Today I'm sharing my Tea Time Christmas Tree. It is a table-top tree displayed on top of the yellow rose tea cart in the dining room. It has miniature tea pots and cups and saucers, plus other tea time things - vintage hankies, mini umbrella's, spoons, jewelry, etc.

This little sparkly red bird was allowed on the tea tree too!

The gold trimmed ceramic tea pot is displayed in a vignette atop the china cabinet in the dining room. I hope you enjoyed seeing my Tea Time Tree and Christmas tea pots. I also have my other themed trees blogged - Santa, Snowman, and Nativities trees are below. I hope to post my angel tree, whimsey tree, and Victorian tree next (or maybe even after Christmas!)

My home is also on BooMama's Home Tour, posted below (on Monday) if you would like to tour our home! Thanks for visiting!

You are so talented, Katherine! The Tea Time tree is wonderful. I love all the special things on the tree. The spoon especially made me smile. And so many little teapots--what a collection! I think your guests must spend hours just walking around admiring all your beautiful decorations. It wouldn't surprise me at all to know that you've been on a Christmas house tour. And if it hasn't been yet, it should be!

What a sweet idea for a dining area! I love the little teapot with the pearl drops down to the cup. I saw saw a little tree like that on sale yesterday and and pondering where I could put it -- I might go back for it today.

I've loved touring your home! My favorite ornament has to be that elf (on the Santa tree) with the spool and bead legs. The nativity scene that you wanted for your blog is wonderful.
Come on over...
