A Transferware Christmas Tea



                                                        I have a special Christmas tea for you
                                                        today. It is special because I made a
                                                        treat for you and I am using some of
                                                        favorite china  
                                                 The square plate and the sweet little mugs
                                                  are Mason Vista.
                                                The treats are old fashioned gingerbread
                                                 with cream cheese icing and a little heart
                                                 ginger cookie tucked in with a little dusting
                                                 of icing sugar.Love the lacy muffin covers~
                                                 I think I bought them at Michael's.


                                                          A Christmas Tea in the sunroom.


                                     I hope you enjoyed a special Christmas tea today.


                                                                     Thank you for visiting,

                                                                                     Carolyn

Love your Mason Vista pieces since I have the same square plate and cups however I never did find the teapot to purchase before I started downsizing my collections.
Your vignette looks so charming and yummy
