In the midst of my preparations for my Gifts From the Kitchen Christmas brunch which will be Saturday morning I had time to pause and set up a little red tea scene.
I have been searching for this red cup and a few other Christmas dishes and had about given up on finding them for this year but, today I finally found them in a drawer in the garage. I only have two of these depression glass cups and saucers. At one point in time I had hoped to find several to use together but never got beyond two sets and then have lost interest in the search.
Several weeks back I was looking through a local antique shop and spotted this red transferware pot. It is probably a coffee pot but who says you couldn't use it for tea.
I was surprised at it's low cost. I know tea things are not the big rage now but something like this pot is still usually more than this one was priced.
This is a good tea - Stash's White Christmas. With a name like that it would have to be good! Love the name and like the tea.
I love these little tea strainers. Or whatever they are intended to be used for.
The pot just says, made in England on the bottom, no company name.
I have already set up a little tea station for Saturday's brunch. Since the two ladies that usually drinks tea will not be here I may be the only one to use this! That's o.k., I still wanted to set up a tea station! The candles will be lit and there will be lots of pictures made so be sure to check back.
Thank you for coming today. I hope you are staying warm and cozy during these holidays.
