A Little Bit of Christmas


Hello everyone,
It's time for a Little Bit of Christmas.  When we were visiting Old Quebec City Canada on our vacation, I found this precious lamb with a tartan scarf in a boutique while I was shopping in the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. I knew it was going to be part of my holiday decoration on my Tea Table in the dining room by a sunny window. 
Time for tea in my Old Country Roses tea cup by Royal Albert.
Little lamb, English tea cup and Christmas cactus is the perfect recipe
for a delightful tea table vignette♥
I am starting a new board on my pinterest with my tea cup collection. Hopefully by this time next year I will have my complete collection displayed. 

I have been waiting for the perfect time to show you my 
Ellgreave Genuine Ironstone tea pot from the thrift store.
This vignette seemed to be the right setting. 
Christmas Cactus are so delicate.
Let the Christmas season get started now...
A mosaic to pin


Thank you for visiting
Joyously,
Betty

  2. The lamb is precious! I will agree with Miss Michele...the thrift teapot is incredible. I pinned one of your pictures to my Tea and Crumpets board.

  3. Oh, such a cute little lamb! Your Christmas cactus is lovely, Betty, and Old Country Roses is perfect anytime but at Christmastime, the roses are especially lush. Pretty teapot too. It has a really nice shape. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    Autumn blessings,

  9. Very sweet. Love the cactus. I can't have plants inside - The 3 Little Kittens can't resist digging! Thanks for sharing.

  10. I think that little lamb is adorable. And as a lover of all things Royal Albert, I do think that Old Country Roses is my all time favorite. I am lucky to have been able to collect a lot of it over the years!

  11. What a charming Christmas display! I love your Christmas lamb...how cute! Old Country Roses is perfect this time of year! And your Christmas cactus is wonderful! Mine didn't survive a move several years ago and I just haven't replaced it/ Guess it's time to do that! I miss it!
    Have a great week and thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  13. What a beautiful tea setting! OCR is one of my favourite patterns and your Ellgreave teapot matches is perfectly. Your little lamb is adorable. I'd love to visit Old Quebec City one day.

  14. Hi Betty:
    I am very fond of Ellgreave Teapots and have several. I think they are more "unexpected" looking which is delightful. That little lamb is so charming! I am so glad you shared your treasures.
