ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH for "Friends Sharing Tea"

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

and welcome to "Friends Sharing Tea" a weekly blog party about tea time.  If you would like to participate, please link a tea related post from your blog at the bottom and PLEASE insert a link on your post to this blog!

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 have been pulling out my holiday decorations and you can probably relate to this:  I always forget exactly what I have and am surprised as I open boxes and remember a certain teapot, angel or ornament.  You probably do the same thing.  The Bavarian chocolate set I am using here was a find last year at an antique mall in Denver.

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.

I will be sharing this post with some other bloggers and linking to these other parties:  A Return to Loveliness, Tea Time TuesdayTuesday Cuppa Tea

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

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.

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

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!

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

Michele said...

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,

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!

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

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.
