As much as I enjoy tradition, I enjoy adding something new to the celebration every year, don't you? One of those things for me this season is this darling alabaster cherub. I made new wings for it, and it sits on the sitting room hearth for now.
On a table nearby are wings of a different kind just in time for a Christmas tea. A new little birdie teapot!
The details are full of charm. I have since learned that there are a few more related products available. Click here for one of the links I found online.
The little brown birdie and berries are now bringing cheer to our holidays, . . .
You may be familiar with the traditional New Mexico Christmas cookies called biscochitsos that I am serving wih tea. Flavored with anise seed and with the texture of a sable cookie, they are available everywhere in Albuquerque this time of year.
They are perfect with hot chocolate, so my new little teapot may be doing double duty!
Hedge Rose by Wedgewood.
Adagio by Noritake.
Vintage cut glass compotes make for a sparkly centerpiece and stand ready to hold decorations or more treats.
Finally, a few Rose Point teacups by Pope Gosser show their luscious embossed pattern.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
I hope it is turning into a beautiful season for you!
