Early Tea-themed Christmas Gifts

While there's still nine days left 'til Christmas, I've already opened four gifts from friends that I wanted to share with you today.  They're tea-themed so I knew you would enjoy seeing them.

A red transferware tea and toast set to match the teapot I bought earlier in the year. 

I can't wait to host a Downton Abbey tea using all of my red transferware dishes and this new cookbook!

A teapot Yankee Candle holder and candles.   Written on the teapot is "Warm Hearts."  I love the red cardinals.

And an adorable Precious Moments teapot pin.  The inscription on the teapot is so true! Thank you Sandy and Lori for the lovely gifts, and most of all, your friendship!


  1. All lovely gifts and I would have been excited to receive a red transferware toast and tea set to match the gorgeous teapot. The pin is sweet, I have a small teapot tack pin I'd forgotten about until I saw yours.
    Have a good week.

  2. Your gifts are lovely, Phyllis. I would have been 'over the moon' happy with the tea and toast set in red transferware. Gorgeous teapot ! You have some wonderful friends. Thank you for sharing and have a joyous week.

    Christmas blessings,

  3. What lovely gifts from friends who *clearly* know you quite well! I love them all -- and these goodies remind me that a) I mean to watch Downton Abbey and see what all the hubbub is about and b) I really do need to pop into Yankee Candle sometime!


Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
