Welcome to this special "CHRISTMAS THYME TEA" . Won't you join me for a time of sharing and reflecting on the joys of this season. I am so pleased too because I found 3 new "old" cups and saucers over the weekend. They are all English. I decided to share those:
The brands of these cups and saucers are: Tuscan, Royal Standard and Roslyn. Most all are numbered and they are lovely. I love collecting cups and saucers so come over to my cabinet and let me show you what I collect.
The holiday season came so quickly after our late Thanksgiving and brought with it busy days! Hours are filled with shopping, crafting, planning, baking and cooking, decorating and of course finding time for the newest Christmas Hallmark movies. As a Christian, I am particularly focused on the celebration of the birth of Jesus. In 1999 we had the privilege of visiting Israel and Bethlehem and the place which is believed to be built over the original location of the manger. It was a thrill to see first hand so many places referenced in the Biblical account of Jesus birth.
I am using my Trellis Bird Teapot and Cream and Sugar with the teacups. Please help yourself to some "White Christmas" tea which is made from white tea, almonds and vanilla! I love these little tea bag sachets.
Say, do you like cookies? I didn't want to assume anything here but figured you did! I have been seeing this recipe on Facebook and wanting to try the newer Sugar Cookie recipe that has sour cream in it as I heard it is nice and moist. Please help yourself! I do think they are softer cookies and here in Colorado where things dry out quickly, that's helpful.
Here is the recipe for the The Sour Cream Sugar Cookies that you will definitely want to go copy!!!! The icing doesn't have egg whites. I always used Martha Stewart's egg white icing before. This icing does take a little longer to dry.
I leave you with this one last bit of advice:
