My teacup is actually a mug! A vintage Santa mug...thumbs up for hot chocolate, as far as I'm concerned! The mug is from 1979 and I think it is so cute! It is such a jolly old elf...Just the way I've always pictured Santa. But the way Santa is hoisting a mug, and the mug says Cheers! I have a feeling he's tippling something a bit more potent than hot chocolate. The other evening we were at a friend's party with eggnog...made of eggnog ice cream, whipping cream, milk, freshly grated nutmeg and a choice of a kick or not. It was the BEST eggnog I have ever tasted...even without the kick. Absolutely addictive...not to mention highly caloric!
Another vintage item is this Hammersley bell from 1971 with the curest metallic gold angels. I think it is so cute...and has a sweet, heavenly sound as well. The words inside the bell say:
When you mee ring,
I'll sweetly sing
And also on the vintage angel theme, heres a vintage English tea towel we found in Gloucester a couple of years ago:
And a last little mushroom church from my mantle decorations. I love them! It's hard to believe they are really made from fungus, but....
Have a wonderful day with the other blog parties and a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
