On Friday December 16th. I invited my dear friends for a Pink and White tea party. I have known these ladies for 43 years and wanted to celebrate our friendship with a small tea party.
Please come along today and tomorrow and I will share with you our very nice day together.
I want to thank my sister-in-law for inspiring me to start collecting pink transfer ware and
I love my NEW Classic PINK WILLOW made in England by Churchill.
I purchased this set from my favorite store
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!!
I have 8 toile napkins and a runner for the table. The crackers were fun to open and we read the jokes to each other. Each person had a dove candy and we also read the inspiration out loud.
As in every one's life each one of my guests has been on a life changing journey. With our fellowship we give each other support and love by telephone calls and having get togethers as often as possible.
I love My Wonderful Friends.
The silver charger on the white linen tablecloth was just the right touch. With my First Love silver plate flatware I think it goes well together.
The simple hurricanes and red candles on a Pink Willow salad plate added to my centerpiece.
A silver plated bread basket held the scones.
Crystal sugar and creamer...Vintage glassware for homemade lemon curd and REAL butter and strawberry jam for the scones.
Each lady received a gift. I wrapped a book about tea in red paper with silver thread to add to the festive day.
As the afternoon went on, we enjoyed our dessert of Chocolate Chip cupcakes with White Chocolate, cream cheese frosting and peppermint candy sprinkles.
I had a great time making the food we ate and the gifts to give.
Welcome everyone. It's time to show some table tops and a mantel. I know there were parties to show off my mantel and vignettes...but I just couldn't get my DUCKS lined up in time. Now with the holiday season I have been working the late evening hours at Tuesday Morning. I love to work from 4 to 9 pm because I can PLAY all day...This year I bought a lighted wreath at Walmart. I really like the lights next to the mirror. The reflection of the little lights at Christmas is so wonderful and the small nativity I found on clearance.
This year I have two nativity sets on the mantel. Last year I had the angels on the mantelHere. The swag is lit and the stockings are hung for Santa to fill. With the Christmas Tree lights and the lights on the mantel the living room is very Cozy in the evening.
The Old Homco Bisque vintage 9pc Christmas set I bought is the early 70'sHere. My children loved to set it up at Christmas time. I was wondering the other day is there a proper place to put Mary and Joesph?
Last year I had this nativity on our Christmas dinner table as the centerpieceHere. I bought the 11 piece nativity at an Estate Sale for $5.00.
We all love ribbon candy!
'Vintage Swedish Chimes'
I was reading a decorating book awhile ago and saw a photo of Christmas decorations in a box on a table. The Copy Cat that I am ~This is my interpretation of the 'Christmas Box'.
The Christmas Tea Cup
Some Sweet Candy
And a special heart
Just a few reminders of the wonderful time of year we are celebrating.
Hello Everyone. We are now in the count down mode...Until Christmas Day

~New Tree~ Now on to my
Christmas Trees Story
I collect Angel Christmas Tree ornaments
and these are a few of my favorites.
This is my story and I'm sticking to it.
In 2010 our Christmas Tree had a few problems with the lights.
I've had my 2010 tree for some years and the lights on the tree were the kind that if one goes out they all go out.
No problem for years.
Last year when I put up the tree the bottom of the tree didn't light up. So I decided I would put a string of lights on for one more year. I just didn't want to go out and buy a new tree last year. Well this year when I started to put the tree together the whole tree wouldn't light up...
Oh My Gosh! I had to buy a tree. Sweetheart and I went to find a tree with the lights that if one goes out the rest stay on.
Yes... We found a tree.
OK- I like little trees, but this one was just to small and the idea was to take it back when we found a larger tree... ha ha ha! Yeah right...
Sweetheart and I took off to shop for a larger tree and we found this one. I put the tree on a table and I love it.
Now I have two trees in the living room. LOL!
I hope you have enjoyed the tale of two trees. I started with one tree and now I have two trees + the feather tree. Here
I'm a wife, mother, sister and friend. I have been married over 50 years. We have three children and six granddaughters have blessed our life. I love homemaking, traveling, blogging and gardening. Tea time is a wonderful part of my day and I hope you enjoy your visit ♥.
