Tea Lover's Christmas Tree Pin, Antique Holiday Postcard #2

Hello and happy Dec. 2nd! Hope your preparations for the coming holidays are going well. I found this article in Antique Trader about Christmas tree pins, and among the examples of Christmas trees that are collector themed I found this cool one....




Isn't that too cute??? The tree is a clear lucite container of tea and the attached pin looks like a Lipton tea bag. Perfect for dunking! Check out the other pins at the link below, because they are really cool.

And here is my antique Christmas postcard for the day from 1910:





The postcard was sent on Dec. 2nd in Keene, NH. I love the poem.

Doing some decorating today, getting the boxes in and getting going. Tomorrow a friend and I are attending the annual fund raising Christmas tea for the Sequim Museum And Art Center, which is always fun. The event is at the Dungeness School House, a local landmark which is used for various things.

Have a great day. And have a cup of tea with a friend!

  1. I have the "Tea Tree" pin...bought it from Kathy Flood who wrote the article on Antique Trader. It's a really cool pin! I'm a Christmas tree pin collector...who loves tea, too.
