Tea cup Thursday


As we march quickly towards Christmas day, we'd like to share A Cup of Christmas Tea as we join Miss Spenser and others today on Tea Cup Thursday.  This beautiful Bone China tea cup was introduced in 1992 to accompany the book by the same title, authored by Tom Hegg and illustrated by Warren Hanson.  Written in rhyming verse, it tells the story of a young man who reluctantly visits an elderly aunt at Christmastime, and shares the unexpected joy it brings as they both enjoy the memories of Christmas past over a cup of Christmas Tea.
The other book shown here, A Cozy Christmas Tea is a little treasure of recipes, quotes, and beautiful paintings by Sandy Lynam Clough.  The author encourages you to celebrate the joy and peace of the season with a cozy Christmas Tea, and what better way to do so than with this delightful tea cup specifically for a cup of Christmas tea.

Beautiful teacup! And I do not have the SLC book, so I'll have to put that on my wish list!

A little sad to see this teacup because I had this teacup and 8 other teacups and saucers stolen out of my car. I was getting ready to help with a tea party.
