IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME ... and ... Here I am wishing you and your loved ones a most wonderful holiday. SO gather round the piano and listen to a few traditional carols... "Oh Come all Ye Faithful" keeps ringing in my head ...Have you taken in any festive concerts lately? I attended the, " Messiah ", two weeks ago and can't wait for the Christmas services on the 24th and the night of the 25th.... so set your candles aglow to ignite your spirit.
This season has been very busy and I have missed several of the Teacup Tuesday celebrations with my teatime friends this year... so I pause here, to raise a warm cup of tea in your honour .

I found this burgandy Paragon set in the back of my tea cupboard . It reminded me of decorating with tinsel around the Christmas tree. Look at all those whimsical swirls of gold leaf curling around the saucer's edges ... Makes me want to dance ... "Round and round the tree I go with a -hey and a -hi and a ho- ho- ho". The design is really quite magical!!!
Paragon is always a good choice, if you enjoy something poetic yet elegant. Even the little posies could be winter roses I suppose .( Ha Ha)
Yes, t'is the season to be jolly and merry ... to fill your cup twice and to be thankful for our many blessings of Family, Friendship and Love. It is also a time to be humble and giving. ... a time to appreciate health. May I wish you and yours, the very best this for the Christmas season. May your hearts be filled with the eternal Spirit of JOY !!!
Thank You to each and everyone of you for gracing the " Grand Lady" with your kind and supportive visits. You are indeed always WELCOME with open arms.
