Teacup Thursday # 85

I missed Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday last week and I have been so busy I haven't had time to follow my tea friend's blogs the last few weeks! I really like the week between Christmas and New Years. Usually it is quite and I can catch up on things, but this year, we just continue to be busy!

So, my teacup is one of my Spode Christmas Tree cup and saucers. I love my Christmas china and it just is my favorite. Jimmy started my collection of Spode years ago, so I have a nice amount of it and will be able to give both of my daughters complete sets someday. It is one thing they both have told me they would like to have from mom.

Jim and I have been enjoying a cup of tea around 4 PM this Christmas season and have decided with like a tea break in the afternoons better than a coffee break. This Harney and Sons Holiday blend has become our favorite! I really like this blend.

I didn't get a chance to share many of my favorite little Christmas things this season so I wanted to sneak in a few little treasures today. I like to collect children's Christmas china. I wish I had a complete set, but enjoy bits and pieces.

Can you believe that 2012 is almost over? This has been a good year for the Colantino Family and I am  sad to see it slip away. I have been thinking about the New Year and my "word" for the 2012. My heart theme was perfect for this past year....a very sweet year with many blessings. I am very thankful.

Hello Linda....It's been a merry time here, too, but very, very busy. I'm tired. Liked looking at all our treasures.Susan

I love your Spode Christmas tree cup. That is such a pretty pattern. And I don't think I've ever seen a Christmas tree I didn't like. Looks like you had a wonderful time with your family. Wishing you a very happy New Year!
