Holiday Tea



Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!

Tea time is restful time.
This time of year it can be a festive time!
Tea can take on a merrier theme.

  (as I sat down my tea tray I noticed a visitor coming to join in...)

The Christmas holiday to me
is about being with and appreciating those you love
and care for...

to take a moment and honor loving relationships...
 being thankful for hope and love.

It is a time to share, to give.
It is a time to be thankful for the Earth
and all she has blessed us with all year.

It is a time of year to have fun,
and even if you are not a child,
to let go and play. 
: )


A serene cup of tea for balance...
Chamomile, peppermint, spearmint and plantain.


(Besty soon joined in as tea is one of her favorite treats)


A very pretty frosty cup...
(a favorite I have shared many times)
her swirls remind me
of wintry weather. 


simply festive,
and cheery.

...and speaking of festive and cheery...
remember this hut I shared a while back,
I said I would show you more later?


Here is the tree lot a little further along...

 and almost done...
this tree lot needs a sign.


I had only just arrived to take pictures
when it began to snow! 
; )


the workers managed to get the sign up
before the storm really hit.
(and the lights went out!)
; )

Snow Valley is open for business,
and Santa is waiting to 
greet you.



there is a good selection of trees this year.


the snow really began to fall in ernest!



The wreaths are only $5!


This is my kind of play!

Thank you for visiting for tea today!

If you are celebrating this month
I am wishing for you good times
with family and friends!  





Sending you all warm hugs of LOVE
Terri 



I am joining Ruth, Bernideen, Sandi  for tea,
and Judith for Mosaic Monday.
Thank  you for hosting ladies!

I just loved reading and seeing this post. Thank you so very much! Your little fur babies are precious.

Playing with miniatures can become obsessive and for me it is fairy gardens yet I love the wintry tree lot you've created Terri. So nice to see your yorkies join in for tea at your festive table, such sweeties. My previous (and first) dog was a yorkie and she was quite th little nurse when someone wasn't well. :-)
Wishing you the spirit of Christmas in your heart and home.

I just love your pretty teacup and your village is wonderful! Looks like your companions approve as well! Will link your Austen tree to a birthday blog I have posting tomorrow. Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea and have a wonderful week!

I love your little Christmas Tree Stand. What a great idea. I may have to "steal" it for next year as I love minis. And that sweet little doggys. How precious they are. Thanks for visiting my blog too.
