It's been such a busy week and it's hard to believe that my last post was last Tea Time Thursday. I have shopped, wrapped, written my Christmas cards, kept Otto overnight, had my car in the shop for a major repair and finished two major sewing projects to be shared later. We are leaving for an early Christmas in Seattle on Saturday, so I have been forced into getting everything done.
Ok, so let's get back to Tea Time Thursday! I love this postcard of the little girls and their dollies having Christmas tea. Today, I would like to share some Christmas teapots. These little pieces of a dolly tea set are so sweet and I just found them at a shoppe. They are old and charming and perfect for the dolls.
I was at a flea market and picked this little demitasse cup and saucer. It's just so cute and it was only $2, so I wanted to sneak this in today too.
I think this is my favorite Christmas teapot. It is English and I love the shape. I've had it for about 15 years or so. I used to sell them in my retail shoppe....Holiday Card Shoppe. I love Father Christmas and of course the holly design.
This is the teapot that matches the Christmas Cup of Tea cup and saucers. It also has a nice shape and is a simple design. I have collected the cream and sugar and a few teacups.
I can't remember where I got this teapot. I like the lattice design. There are no markings on the bottom.
I HAD to add the Spode teapot! It has the famous Spode shape and keeps the tea nice and warm.
I love my Spode collection.
As you know, I am a big fan of Sandy Lynam Clough. A Cozy Christmas Tea book is full of tea recipes and charming graphics. It was fun to read through it again.
This recipe for Orange-Cranberry Tea looks delicious! I would like to make this during the Christmas season. I think it must be very pretty with the cranberry juice.
4 cups of cranberry juice
3 herbal orange tea bags
Thinly sliced orange wedges
Heat cranberry juice to almost boiling.Place tea bags into the pot to steep for 3-5 minutes.
Serve in mug with orang wedges for garnish.
