Sweet Memories

When I was growing up
we always went to Granny's for Christmas.

She had a bright, shiny tree with bubble lights.
Around the base of the tree was a little village -- all plastic.
Bottle brush trees.
I thought it was a wonderland.

The candy canes.
Hot chocolate in a Santa mug.
I still love candy canes, hot chocolate and Santa mugs.
Every year I go looking for new mugs -- the cheaper the better to get the look!
The mugs can't be microwaved, but they can be filled with candy canes and placed around the house.
Hot chocolate tastes really good in a holiday mug, too.
I've already tried Stash's Christmas Eve herbal tea -- especially nice as a bedtime treat. 


The owl mug is new this year.

Happy Owl

I'm thinking of making postcards.
You can help.
Which one do you like best?


I'm joining some lovely tea parties today:

Wishing all of you well, much joy and a lovely cup of tea!

Hi Snap,
I love your owl mug and it's fun to have those cute mugs for the seasons. I'm thinking that I like the last postcard the best.
Thanks for the thumbs up on Stash's Christmas Eve herbal tea.
Happy Thnaksgiving!

I like them all but I love the one in the middle...the OWL takes front and centre and I like the font.

I love your childhood reminiscence Snap...you created such a warm, loving memory. Aren't we blessed to have those?

Your owl mug is the cutest! I bought my daughter a penguin mug this year and sent it to her at school! She loved it! They just put one into the Christmas spirit!

Your owl mug is adorable, and I love your cards, Snap. May you create more precious memories this holiday season, as you take time to remember Thanksgiving and Christmas past.
God bless, Beth
