A Finch Christmas Teacup!!!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I know I have been absent - so sorry!
 We've just had so many social engagements to host or attend,
 and I simply ran out of time!

I know I never did share a holiday home tour -
 it's been way too busy and now it's just too late.
 Perhaps next year.

I honestly need to start decorating in October! 

I do strongly feel I must ask that you to please
 indulge my holiday side one more time
 and allow me to share one last Christmas item;
 a perfect surprise from my husband!

Well, he knows my love of tea, and of yellow finches....

And he found a Christmas Yellow Finch
 Tea cup, saucer and snack plate trio!!!!!

So I am enjoying my teatime today
using my sweet new set and just relaxing
and praising God for our happy and healthy holiday.

The new tin of Harney & Sons White Christmas Tea
 was a hostess gift from my women's club friend Kathy,
 who recently attended my Christmas Tea & Cookies Social.

But what I am drinking today is a special Christmas tea blend -
was inserted inside a card from our fellow blogger
 Angela of Tea With Friends.

Her blog is a go-to for All Things Tea -
 I especially enjoy reading her tea reviews!

BTW: she is also a published author!

What a wonderful Christmas season this was. 
I hate for it to end, it all happens so fast, doesn't it?

As always, thank you for your visit!




  1. Very thoughtful husband. Perfect present. I love your new 3 piece set with the yellow finch birds.

  2. Michele, I am squealing with delight over your Goldfinch teacup trio! LOVE it! Your hubby sure knows what you like. I'm glad you shared one more holiday post as I would have hated to miss this teacup! It's adorable! Thank you for joining me for tea this past year and I wish you and your loved ones a Happy & Healthy New Year.


  3. Michele, that is a very sweet teacup. I've never seen one quite like it but it's perfect for you and your love of Goldfinches. I'm glad you enjoyed Christmas. It did come and go very fast. Wishing you and yours a blessed new year. Pam

  7. Michele, your Christmas teacup is lovely and perfect for you.
    I've been trying to get a post Christmas post created, but I didn't get one done. Now the window of time has closed. Next year!

  8. Love it Michele! The perfect teacup for you! I hope you and your family have a happy and blessed new year.

  9. What a perfectly lovely and thoughtful gift, not to mention beautiful! Love the tea choice, perfect for the season. Like you I ran our to time to get it all done. With so much to do, and places to go I didn’t get my photos edited and now it’s just to late for another Christmas post.
    Wishing you all the best in the New Year!

  10. What a perfect gift for you! Yay! Your husband did good. So glad you had a nice Christmas Michele; enjoy it for a few more days yet. You've been busy, just rest for a bit if you're able my friend.

  11. I didn't post much about Christmas this year either..house was decorated, but I was just too busy to post. I love your finch china!

  12. What a darling tea set! It's been cold here, and I've started enjoying a cup of lemon ginger tea every night -- there's something so relaxing about tea, isn't there? Happy New Year, Michele! :)

  13. Happy Merry Christmas New Year to YOU! What a sweet gift.

  14. Beautiful,, Michele, so happy for you, I can sense your excitement!
    Have a Blessed New Year!

  15. What a perfect gift for you! That's a sweetie for sure! I tried the White Christmas Tea from H&S but I can't say I liked it...passed it on to a daughter in law. The Murchie's Christmas tea was my fav for a holiday tea...but....Glad you had such a fun Christmas! Happy New Year and thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

    1. I haven't tried it yet, don't drink White tea too often, the tin is so pretty - will let you know what I think! : - )

  16. Very unique teacup. The the White Christmas Tea also looks good!

  17. Hi Michele: The tea cup is perfect for you. How sweet that your hubby looked for a tea cup for you. Love the holiday decor to, I hate to take it down. Wishing you a wonderful New Year. Looking forward to next year's tea party. Blessings, Martha

  18. Sweet! How nice your husband is on your same page! Wishing you a happy new year!

  19. I feel the same way Michele, Christmas comes and passes all too fast. So for me, the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve is still full Christmas! lol! I am still celebrating ; )
    Your husband is a keeper! Wow, he hit all three of your favorites in one tea cup pattern! That is amazing! I think he should buy a lottery ticket just in case he is still very lucky! Wishing you and your family a very Happy and healthy New Year!

  20. Oh my goodness Michele, the trio is so perfect for you! What a sweetie pie your hubby is to find that for you. You will treasure that gift for years to come.
    Happy New Year blessings to you and your family.

  21. What a man! This set was made for you and I am so happy your hubby found it to surprise you at Christmas Michele. I have a few bags of white tea from an exchange but I'm really a black tea girl at heart, and I like flavoured teas too!
    Happy New Year!

  22. How pretty, Michele! I'm sure he felt like he hit the jackpot when he found that set. The perfect gift for you!

    Happy New Year!

  23. So thoughtful! And a lovely set. I always look forward to Spring when the Goldfinches turn from brown back to gold. I keep Christmas the whole 12 days so I'm happily immersed in catching up an all the Christmas posts I missed during Advent. I have declared this New Year's Day a Pajama Day - not getting dressed, not doing housework. Drinking coffee and watching tv, catching up on my fav. blogs. I may even take a nap! Hope you have a great year!

  24. How beautiful is that tea cup... and so perfect for you!
