Table Top Tuesday

I had hoped to have a new tabletop ready to share, but since I don't I will show some decorations from last year. Thanks for hosting, Marty! Click on her name for lots more tabletopsf!

I'm sharing close-ups of my village tea room, and the mini tea time ornaments on my tea time tree.

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


Last 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 enjoyed seeing one of my favorite posts from last year.

Thanks for hosting Table Top Tuesday, Marty!
I'm also linking to Lady Katherine's Tea Time Tuesday, click on her name to see lots of pretty tea time things! Thanks for hosting, Lady Katherine!

Now, let the decorating begin! (Along with the shopping, gift wrapping, baking, card addressing, ETC!!!!!! I pray it's fun and not a chore!)

Thank you for this beautiful ornament, Janet!

That is too cute: tea pots on the tree, and trees on the tea pots. Very lovely, the full photo of the tree on the end table is just gorgeous!

I'm lovin' your tea themed tree Katherine! I have a fondness for crochet ornaments. I have a hand crafted teddy bear I spent $4 on 25 years ago (way too much money for me at that time!), but I love it and it makes me smile each year:@)
