T(ea) on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T on Tuesday with a cup of tea... nothing fancy, just plain old breakfast tea.
When I was shopping last week I found this black tin with the Keep Calm logo on it and picked it up to go with the one the one from Bridget in Australia.  The Christmas tree tin is a revolving music box shortbread biscuit tin I got in Marks and Spencers for half price... gotta love a bargain!
I made these two mug rugs for a friend for Crimbo... love that material, perfect for T on Tuesday!
Tree is up and I am ready for Christmas.... well, nearly ready for Christmas.... will be soon... sort of... mayb.... ;)
Will be around to visit the other T ladies after breakfast..... 


  1. Love those mug rugs, what a great idea. The tea tins are lovely, too, and good that you got a bargain with the shortbread tree. Have a good week and happy T day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Your tree looks stunning and festive! That is my task for today with maybe a cup of tea or two. The fabric for the mats you made is gorgeous-I'm sure the recipient will love them! Happy T Day!

  4. yes, you look ready for xmas! the tea tins caught my eye, too;) Keep calm... that´s what i wish for you, also... happy t-day!

  5. lovely setting of tea and candles...your decorations are quite festive. That is a gorgeous Christmas tree! hope all your holiday preparations get done in time...I too am running behind and perhaps will just have to simplify! happy T day! ♥

  6. Yes on bargains AND I Love music boxes...yours is so unique and useful too Annette!
    Thank you for sharing your lovely Christmas decos with us. Your teapot cup combo is such a good idea for having a nice hot cuppa!
    Happy T Day...missed visiting with you.

  7. Looks pretty and festive at your house. I'll bet you were excited when you found the fabric for those mug rugs. Perfect!

  8. Your tree is beautiful and love your little collection of tins. Love the teapot in the background also :)

  9. Of course you are ready for Christmas! When the tree is up, the rest is a doddle!
    I love the tea caddy and the place mats. Such great fabric!
    And your tree is absolutely beautiful!
    Thank you for commenting already,
    Happy T-day and have a good week,

  10. I love your setting for tea. Pretty. And your tree is lovely, too. I'm thinking those "mug rugs" -cute name- would make perfect gifts. Happy T Tuesday!

  11. The tea caddy and the plcw mats are super and your tree is just GORGEOUS!
    Happy T-Day!

  12. Well, dear Annette, I couldn't get much later if I tried. Slept in after being up most of the night.

    Your candles, lit and all, on the table are simply beautiful. I love the holders they are in, too. Of course, the tea and the teapot/cup combo are beautiful.

    That music box tin is out of this world. I'm not sure what Marks and Spencers is, but it sounds like a high end shop. And who among us doesn't LOVE a bargain. I bet even Chris wouldn't complain about that (not that he ever would, anyway).

    Oh wow. I love the fabric in those mug rugs. At first, I thought they were place mats. Either way, they are fantastic and perfect for T(ea).

    Your tree looks so festive. I bet it's good to be home for the first time in years with all the wonderful ornaments and surroundings that make it special.

    Thanks for sharing your tea tins, your teacup (and dining room table), your mug rugs, and Christmas tree with us for T this Tuesday.

  13. Your home looks so festive with all those lovely decorations! Happy T Day. :)

  14. I'm not getting around to you till my suppertime. LOL! Pretty decorations and tree!
    Happy T-Day! :)

  15. I love your table and tree but I must say your mug rugs are brilliant! I love the M and S musical tin, must say I was tempted!! Hugs, Chrisx

  16. Oh your table looks lovely and your tree is gorgeous!

  17. Your table looks very festive and those mug rugs look fabulous.
    What a lovely tree (mine is still in the box).

  18. Belated T-day wishes, my friend.

    I adore the tea cup mats, simple but elegant.
