Greetings to my blogging friends and welcome to "Friends Sharing Tea",  a weekly blog party for tea loving Bernideen's Tea Time Blog:

This morning I baked a "Christmas Cake" to feature here on this post.  My hubby was doing a "quality control test" and sliced himself a piece.  "What is that?" he said -  I had baked the band aid from my finger into the cake.  "Did you have neosporin ointment on your finger?" He asked....."Yes" was my reply.  "Throw it away!" was the next comment..................some days are like this at our house.  So this is my cakeless post - but I will bake it again!

I love the holidays and Christmas means so much to me
 as a Christian as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

If you are a blogger - please join me and link something about tea below!  And please include a link to me on your post!

I am very pleased with our new snowy Colorado.  We were so in need of moisture!  A cup of tea with my Old Country Roses is so special and I love hot tea now that it is cold outside. The spicey flavored black teas suit me just fine!

Hark the Herald Angels sing - Glory to the newborn King!

I want to thank all of your that follow my blog and also
 participate in this blog party.  There are SO MANY BLOGS now and SO MANY PARTIES and many are very similar. 
 It can be overwhelming!

I will be linking my post to others:
"HOME" and Home and Garden Thursday
and The Rose Garden in Malevik
and Home Sweet Home
and Vintage Inspiration

Just a reminder: Next week I will be hosting a special Christmas Tea - can you join me???

Hi Bernideen, I love all your angels!! They are so pretty. That is too funny about the band aid and the neosporin, but sad about the loss of the cake. Thank you for hosting.

Oh, I love this post, reminded me of the time I made a big beautiful bowl of potato salad and had forgot to cook the potatoes. Old Country Roses is my favorite! Your roses are beautiful !

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Bernideen,
Sorry about your cake! Your OCR pieces are lovely and so are the red roses. I have my Daddy's old violin and I keeping meaning to feature it in a post but I always forget until I see yours.
Thank you for coming by to join my HOME party and leaving your very nice comment. Thanks for hosting your party too. I agree there are so many blogs now that it is hard to keep up at times. Have a beautiful day.

Christmas blessings,

Hello Bernideen
Aren't you glad that was your hubby that found the bandaid?
Beautiful roses and a nice collection of angels.
Thanks for hosting.

Hi Bernideen,

Thank you for sharing and hosting this event beside you have so many work those days. Have a wonderful Christmas time.
Best greetings, Johanna

Beth said...

Sorry about your cake, Bernideen, but I do love your angels and your OCR! Glad you got snow too.

How disappointing about the cake! Lovely rose

Thanks for the invitation to join your party. Oh, that is too bad about your cake. But a funny story, too. You'll laugh about that one for a while. What a perfectly beautiful teaparty, where angels and roses meet. My friend has this china and is never quite sure how to use it. I need to send her over to look at your pictures.


Oh dear Bernideen, your angels are adorable! All your images are simply beautiful. Thank you for hosting and enjoy your holiday season.

Susan said...

I know roses are summer flowers, but honestly there's something about designing with them at winter (or Christmas holidays) when they are more fitting...especially with angels!

Micupoftea said...

Angels and roses...what a sweet combination! Love the violin photo. Happy Tea times :)

Two Cottages And Tea said...

A lovely tea with your beautiful tea set! I love the violin with the sheet music and I adore the song! Too bad about the cake!! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season and thank you for hosting your tea party!

Kathy said...

Hello Bernideen, your husband sounds like mine! So sorry about the cake - I've been there before! Your vignette looks marvelous! I look forward to joining you this week. I have moved my blog, my party will be up as usual. You can find me at I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

What lovely photos of your teawares and the magnificent roses! Sorry to hear about the cake incident, but at least it made an amusing story you bravely shared with us!
