Hello my dear tea friends...I didn't think I'd see you this week for Tuesday Cuppa Tea! The last few weeks have been so stormy, windy and filled with multiple power outages, I thought it was just another one when I woke up Saturday ready to finish my blog...with no internet or phone. But it kept on...and on. Finally today at 4:30 pm it was restored...which is why I am late...and it wasn't caused by the wind or storms...a rat had gotten into the fiber optic main building and merrily begun shredding fiber optic cables! Amazing...in a tech world, a decidedly low tech critter can bring everything screeching to a halt. I was just glad it wasn't the week before because of all the Christmas orders from the shops that had to be in the mail to reach their destinations before the big day. The folks who ordered over the weekend knew they wouldn't be in time anyway, so no panic ensued. Whewww...glad THAT's over!
My tea has not been processed well because I couldn't get access to the photos, but here is my birds tea. I seem to have collected quite a few bird mugs over the years, and I know you have seen some already. But...they are favorites this time of year!
This is my Emma Bridgewater Robin in a Christmas wreath Happy Christmas mug...I LOVE her pottery....and I love the Cheeky Chappie English Robins!
This is from her Birds line...
This next mug is by Dunoon, England in the Robin again by artist Richard Partis in the Season's Greetings set of 3...and I know you have seen this as I have shared this before...one of my favorites.
And then there is my Emma Bridgewater cup and saucer in the Robin Folk print...
Goes so well with the rest of the flock! And this year I found this Lenox, USA teapot in the Winter Greetings pattern with a Cardinal on it to keep the robin's company!
The birds live in a closet most of the year, but I love to have them all out during the holidays.
I borrowed a neighbor's bundt pan in a Christmas tree shape, and made a Lemon Cranberry cake and it was delicious! Have you done baking? I don't dare do a lot because it's only the 2 of us, and you can only give so much to the neighbors! Lol!
We are heading for Victoria, BC for Christmas this year, so will post about that later. I bet it will include tea!
I wish you all the most wonderful Christmas this year...may your hearts be filled with love, light, hope, grace and His love as we celebrate Christ's birth.
Below is the list of some of the blog parties I will be part of and there is the linky for your tea related posts...please remember that it is SSSLLLOOOOOOWWWW but if you are patient...it's there! And I love to read your comments, and can find you to visit!
