Tea Under My Feather Tree...

Welcome to Tea Under My Feather Tree
Hello Everyone,
The Holiday Season is officially here!
I need a cup of tea!

I brought the sofa table in from the living room for the holiday season.  The feather tree is decorated with red ornaments.  The Tea is ready and a piece of candy or two.

As the blogland parties progress I will be revealing the different themes for each room.
The dining room has a Scottish theme.  I'm still dreaming about my wonderful experience in Scotland this summer.

I wish I could explain the feeling I have when I arrange a vignette for a post.  It's exciting to see the elements develop a picture.  Something sweet and soft.  Romantic and delightful.
A story in a tray.

My great grandmother's spoon she brought from England in 1914.  A great way to have one cup of tea.
The napkin-handkerchief is from a collection of linens I found at a yard sale.

Red and white napkin was another yard sale purchase.  I love yard sales...

The Christmas cup is part of a set of dishes I bought years ago. Soon I will have a tablescape using the complete set.
There is a secret about the Christmas dishes and I don't want to let the cat out of the bag.

Tuesday Morning is my best friend.  I found the reindeer ornaments for .27cents each in a clearance box.  Can you see how I hung them from my feather tree? 

I bought the tea pot drip catchers from a tea shop.  They are wonderful and save the good linens.

Don't these look delicious?  This little box of candy is a Christmas ornament.  Yum...

The sparkly reindeer are so adorable and I think they will soon be meeting up with Santa for their midnight ride.

The red tea pot is the perfect size for one person to have a cup of tea or two.
I  would love to have more the same size.  

I looked at this photo and noticed the yellow on the top of the candle.  Isn't it interesting that it's a different color from the candle.  It must be some chemistry thing.  And of course the candle is off center a little. As I say "nothing is perfect in my world." 

I hope you've had a little rest from your busy day. And I must join the great parties going on in blogland.


Have a great weekend and see you at

  9. Those lil reindeer are just beautiful and adorable. Such a nice personal tea party as well.
    Don't you just love faux foods..........I have them all over the place, and when my kids were in the teen years, the guys used to be the ones that were the most fascinated by them, course, they liked trying to prank someone with them!! lol

    Some I made myself by drying them in the oven
    and shellacing them, so many times found myself
    explaining to them how to do it! Always thought that was funny!

    Enjoyed your post and your cute feather tree!

    Blessings for a Wonderful Christmas Season!
