SNOWMAN TEA

While most of my teacups are dainty and lovely, I also love to have tea served in something just fun! Soooooo.....Here's my cute little snowman individual teapot/cup.  I enjoy peppermint tea in this little cutie.

He's sitting  on a vintage silver tray.

The tray says "Merry Christmas" on it.
















And to add to the fun of sipping my peppermint tea in snowman teacups, we just received our first snowfall of the season so we  are assured of a white Christmas. I took a few photos from the inside of the house.

This photo overlooks the circle drive.

The two photos above, look out our dining room window where I sometimes sit with my tea.


                                         This photo looks out the living room window  in the back of the house.


And apparently I have a "thing" for snowmen as I have collected several of them without thinking about it.  This is probably my FIRST Snowman...a vintage little guy that my grandmother had.



And here are two more in a fun basket that has little lights all over it. Purchased from a very talented lady I know who makes many of these baskets.


This is an old vintage snowman that I found at a yard sale. Planned to sell it but decided to keep it.


                                        This snow lady was a purchase from TJMAXX. And I was  still not realizing I was collecting snowmen. Just gathering up cute things I liked.

                                        A warm, cuddly sweet little guy I couldn't resist.


And a whimsical folk- art- like snow fella.

Not to mention a whole set of Mitford snowmen and matching lamp, snowman child's cups and plates.... and more!! And I really wasn't trying to collect snowmen! So it was fitting then when I ended up buying a snowman teapot/cup!


Apparently I have a snowman addiction as I took photos of more snow people I was going to buy. I don't have them YET but....


My snowfriends and I are joining the following tea parties:

  1. I'm so jealous of your beautiful circle drive! Such a serene snowfall you had there. None yet in Oklahoma. Stay warm and cozy with that tea!

    Blessings,

    1. Thanks, Sylvia. I probably should have ventured outside for the photo shots but sometimes it's fun from the inside also.

  3. Hi Sandy,
    We had a heavy snowfall yesterday but to my hubby's delight it's gone today. He has to work in it and he doesn't enjoy that.
    Your snowmen are so cute including your teacup set. Funny, isn't it, how we end up with a collection sometimes without realizing it. I had no idea that I would end up collecting SnowBabies. Thank you for linking up your very cute post with my Christmas tea.

    Christmas blessings,
    Sandi

    1. I think once you get THREE of anything you already have a collection and then family keeps adding to it!

  4. Hello Sandy,
    No snow fall here...it is about 65-72 degrees lately, although it may cool to the high 50s...so snow may not happen for us just yet! Once in a while we get a little dusting.
    Your pictures out doors look lovely! Since we don't live with snow here, I really like it! Do you?
    Your snowman tea set is very sweet, and I think peppermint tea is the best one for it.
    All your snowmen are sweet. It is fun to have a collection...even if it was accidental : )
    Hugs,
    Terri

    1. I love the snow but the cold, not so much. Unfortunately they kind of go together. You just have to be ready to dress for the cold and it's not so bad.
      My family loves it when I collect ANYTHING because then they know what to get me for Christmas! Hah!

  5. Wonderful snowman te 4 one! How cute! And perfect with your snow and other snowmen. I used to live in snow country, but had to move back to sea level after 30 years. Miss the first few snows, not the work of shoveling and snowblowing! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

    1. We're kind of spoiled here because we live in a city owned mansion where we act as Resident Directors. We don't do any of the shoveling so we can enjoy the snow without the work! My husband especially loves THAT part of it!
