Mini Tea Time

I promised I would show close-ups of my village tea room, and the mini tea time ornaments on my tea time tree. I'm sorry I'm late doing this, we have sad news in our family. Joe's sister is at a Hospice Home and isn't expected to live. We have been making the six-hour round trip drive there as often as possible.

I'm thankful I have my blog and computer friends as this is very good therapy at times like this. I haven't had time to design a new banner, I hope to get to that soon.

Below is one of my favorite village people, the little poinsettia salesman. I bought him at Walmart a few years ago.

This year I bought the little guy below, bringing home his Christmas tree. I bought three new
village people from Walmart this year, the one above and these two below:
I like the carolers, especially the one with the baby carriage!

I bought the two carriages below a few years ago.
The first lady is holding a little dog, I wonder if the doggie is allowed in the tea room!
The second couple is also going to the tea room!
I bought the lamplighter a few years ago at Lowe's.

I hope you enjoyed seeing close-ups of the tea room:

Next, I'm sharing close-ups of some of the mini tea time ornaments on the 4ft. tree:

Lenox mini tea cart

A friend gave me the tiny crystal tea pot and tea cup this year!
Aren't they beautiful!
This little tea pot has pearl tea "drops" pouring into the tea cup:
A hand blown glass yellow rose is to the right.

Not tea theme, but since we had a Disney World trip this Christmas I was thrilled to find this Lenox Mickey Mouse ears hat ornament for only $3.99 at TJ Maxx.
I also found the Spode mini tea pot at TJ Maxx

At the bottom of the tree I have two mini tea rooms, and two mini tea sets.

A friend gave me this mini tea set this year

and this mini tea set last year!

Whenever I see mini tea rooms like this I buy them, they are usually very inexpensive!
It has a "Tea Shop" sign on the right.

I bought this one at K-Mart years ago, it has Lady Catherine's Tea Room on it:

This larger tea room was purchased at Walmart several years ago:

Poinsettias, anyone?

I hope you are having a wonderful new year. If I don't post for a few days it will probably mean we are out of town again.

God Bless.


Thank you for this beautiful ornament, Janet!

I'm so sorry to hear about Joe's sister. I am praying for you and for her family. May you feel God's arms holding you tight as you walk this rough road.

Your teahouses are wonderful - you almost inspire me to start another collection!

All of your little village people are just wonderful and so unique from others that I've seen. I especially love the one with the cute little baby carriage. Your tea time ornaments are just stunning too. What fabulous decorations and you have them displayed so beautifully. Hugs, Marty

Sorry to hear about Joe's sister.

You seem to be so lucky at finding these types of things. I have a few but not enough to do a tree.

Your tea collection is lovely! I especially love the last photo. The colors are scrumptious! Can't you just imaging pouring tea from this adorable pot...

No KK, that was a couple of years ago. No snow so far this year. It is rare and doesn't last but a day. I had no winter pics so I went back in my files.
