Welcome to the Holidays and time for decorating,
baking, serving tea and all sorts of wonderful things....

For us Christmas is all about
the celebration of the birth
of Jesus.

Luke 2:VS 8-9  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 

VS 10-11  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

I would love to just stay home today and do some baking, however, I own a shop - so this is a very busy time of the year.  I so look forward to retirement when I can be a homemaker again.  I love to sew and have so many projects running around in my brain.

I hope all my blogging friends have a wonderful holiday season, take time for tea and family and friends.


  1. Hi Bernideen! OH, your little tea table is just precious! Love all your pieces and the little ladies are darling!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Hi Bernideen,
    to stay at home as a homemaker seems wonderful but to have a running business has nice sides, too. I wish you a good Christmas sale. The items you show on your blog are so lovely that I would love to shop in your store. The Bavarian chocolate set is so charming and makes together with the angels a charming atmosphere. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea time and for hosting this sweet event.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  3. Oh, I love this set and ofcourse the milk glass vase!

  4. Hello Bernideen,
    Funny how you would like to retire and stay at home to be a home maker and now that my children are grown, I would love to be out running a beautiful store like yours! Your chocolate pot is so sweet and the cups are adorable! Your home is really beginning to look like Christmas with your angels and other cute decorations.


  5. Your vignettes are beautiful and your tea set is gorgeous! I love the peace angel.
    Have a wonderful week!

  6. A lovely collection of angels Bernideen, and I like the sparkly white church.

  7. Oh Bernideen...what a wonderful angel collection! Wondeful. And the antique hand painted china is a fabulous compliment. Opening boxes that have been stored for awhile is really like opening a Christmas package! Either something you've forgotten about, or an old and welcome friend! Wonderful post and photographs. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  8. Love your Bavarian chocolate set, and your angels. Merry Christmas!

  9. Oh Bernideen! I could study your pictures forever - so much to see and admire! WOW!

    It is just so Christmasey and sweet and girlie - your china collections are amazing.

    I wish you an amazing holiday sales season, my friend.

    Sorry I am late, been a crazy long day!

    Big hugs,


  10. Love your angels and the little peek at the green transferware plate.

  11. What a beautiful tea table, Bernideen! How I would love to be a guest. Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week.

  12. Hi Bernideen,

    Lots of pretties for tea this week. Your table is just charming. I would love to shop in your store. Such darling angels. Thank you for hosting.

  13. Speechless...so gorgeous! I want one of everything please...will you tell Santa?! (SMILES) ~Donna

  14. Hi Bernideen,
    I love your collection of angels and scripture to go with them. I have a collection of angels I need to get out for the holidays. Your Bavarian chocolate set is fabulous! Everything looks so beautiful. Have a wonderful day!

  15. Beautiful collection of angels and as usual, your tea cups are magnificent. I'd bring some cookies with the tea, when I drop by, XOXO

  16. Despite being a fulltime business owner, you sure seem to fit in LOTS of homemaking from what I see, Bernideen! Thanks for sharing the sweet angels with us.

  17. Hi Bernideen,
    Love all the hand painted china, beautiful!
