Show and Tell


Time for Kelli's Show and Tell, go here for more fun!

I'm showing my Tea Time tree today. This tree is full of mini tea cups and tea pots, most of them have been given to me by dear friends.
This Tea Time Christmas tree is in the dining room, on top of my tea cart.
I'm going to sneak in this Santa Claus here, it's on the curtains in the dining room. I love him, he is very unique.

Here are some close-ups of things on the tree. The yellow rose ornament was also a gift. A yellow rose is my "signature."
My husband brought me this Battenburg lace fan from Italy.
The candy ribbon is in the shape of a tea pot. The tiny blue and white tea pot I bought while in Holland. The little mini poinsettia tea set was a gift from a dear friend last Christmas.
Note the tiny Lenox tea cart at the bottom. There's also a matching Lenox tea cup.
I bought a tea time ornament similar to this herbal tea one, but now I can't find where it is!!
This little mini tea pot has pearl beads "pouring" down to the tea cup!
I just received the Thomas Kinkade mini tea pot today! I love Thomas Kinkade things!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my tea time tree. Go down to the next few posts to see my Snowman Tree, and snowman collection, plus other Christmas decorations. I'm slowly getting the decorating done, I'll share them as I do them.

What a beautiful wee tree. Love your tiny tea sets.

I love to see other people's Christmas goodies. Thanks for sharing yours.

I am blogging daily until Christmas Eve about my decor, traditions and food here in Northern Ireland.

Katherine,

Thank you for sharing this today. It seems we are kindred spirits with tea cups and Thomas Kinkade, although I am not half as creative as you. I enjoy all the tea tree decorations so much.

Your tea tree is precious. And I love that you put in on the tea cart. I should do one of those someday...

Jan and Tom said...

Katherine, your tree is lovely. I collect tea cups and tea pots...in regular size. I have a Tea Cart, too. Perhaps I should think about getting some mini's and doing a Tea Tree, next year!!

I love the Santa, the fan and the ribbon candy in the shape of a teapot.

Thanks for visiting.

What a fun Christmas tree!

JudyBug said...

Hard to pick a favorite. They are all so cute but I think the one that is "pouring" tea is the cutest!

Becki said...

Your tea-tree is so sweet. Lovely ornaments!

You said you were busy and you weren't kidding. You could stay busy just reading all your lovely comments.

Lady Katherine said...

Love the tree, I see a cup of old country roses, wish I could reach through the computer! lol I need a few more to finish collection. I missed the tea set got go back and look!

Alice said...

Your Tea Time Christmas Tree is gorgeous! It must have taken you quite some time to collect all the pieces. So beautiful! Great post!

Please feel free to stop by my blog and visit anytime.

Regarding the Nutcracker Illustrated Book on my Friday Blog. I bought it in 1996 I believe, and since you asked about it being reproduced, I went out to Amazon.Com and found this:

HERE

You may try to look for it on EBay or Abe Book Sellers. That seems like a hefty price for an used book.

Bonita said...

Such beautiful decorations and I'm in love with your tea time tree!

PEA said...

That is one of the most delightful trees I've ever seen...look at all those precious mini teapots and cups!! What a beautiful collection you have:-) xoxo
