On the Tenth Day of Christmas....

life's blessings brought to me a TEN PIECE SNOWMAN TEA SET. I chose this because well frankly, I am running out of ideas. And I do absolutely love this little tea set. One year I bought it at JoAnn's in the after Christmas deal. It seems like such a hard time of year to shop. There are such great deals that I am dying to take advantage of, but I am always out of money by the time the day after Christmas comes around. So I remember deliberating over this purchase, but in the end I gave in to the fact that I just loved it too much to pass it up. I especially love the two little spoons that go in the cups. Something about their faces reminds me of cats. :) Then there is the cute little
tea pot. There must be a part of me that still has not grown up and wants to play tea party. Some of you may be wondering how this is ten pieces. There is one platter, one creamer, two cups, two spoons, one teapot with lid, and one sugar bowl with lid. Every year when I get this out it brings a smile to my face. I think it is one of my favorite decorations. Diana also has a fascination with it. In past years I have worried when she has actually used it for her tea parties. Selfishly I haven't wanted to share. But it has always survived unharmed, and I should really let her enjoy it. That way she will always have fond memories of it as well as me.
