"T'IS THE SEASON" ... Do you have a Christmas list ? I threw mine away and decided to hit the streets with a Fa-La-La...I can't wait for the Christmas Carols to start.
Welcome Ladies ...Let's have a good old traditional cup of tea in a traditional green cup to get us warmed up and into the Christmas mood ... This festive Ansley set fits perfectly into the spirit of the season.
Doesn't all that golden ric-rac remind you of wrapping tinsel about the christmas tree, especially while singing , "Deck the halls with boughs of holly ( Fa-la-la-la..la-la-la-la-la)"... and ... Don't you think the ring of leaves could be holly? Maybe,we could all use our imaginations and put red berries on the cup. ( poof) There now ... Can you see the red holly berries?
I'm so glad to have teatime friends to indulge me and my imaginings .... During this magical season, it's always exhilarating to see the spirit of Christmas through a child's eye and quite frankly, I'm only one step away from that ( Ha Ha)
This week, all the Christmas Carols are blaring on the CD player and the decorations are being brought down from the attic. I love singing the old Welsh Carol " Deck the Halls" since it conveys the significance of merriment, fellowship and social events that characterize the holiday season.
I'm ready to trim the tree and decorate the house, like the layers of this saucer ... however my creativity may not be as ornately and skillfully edged around the house ... I tend to go out of the lines when decorating and I do not follow the strict rules of having everything perfect, since I'm eclectic by nature .
Oh I almost forgot to introduce you my guest " Chantelle " a cute little Victorian Doll, who loves to sing at teatime... Can you imagine a merry gathering in a hall that has been decorated in seasonal greenery and people dressed in their finest garb. Now, envisage a room, warmed by a blazing fireplace with a harpist playing a golden harp ,while you sit and sip on your tea.
OK , back to reality, we need something yummy to go with our tea. How about some Peppermint Bark ?.. Let's make it together Ladies. ..Only kidding...I have some already prepared.( Ha Ha) Usually, I buy peppermint chocolate for hubby's Christmas stocking but must admit to munching a few yummy bites.
So today, we're indulging with a chocolate peppermint tea. Can you smell it ? Hopefully, the taste will give us that special bit of synergy and zing to sing and shop a lot ... On your mark , get ready, GO
