Tea Time Tuesday

Last Saturday I went to the Greeley Wesleyan Church Holiday Arts and Crafts Festival. There were over 60 artisans with temptations of all kinds.
In the first room we stopped and found delicious jams and jellies and the cutest spreaders. Everything was displayed beautifully ~ all the booths could have had professional designers setting wares out for the shoppers.

Sarah and I will enjoy using these when we serve our guests at our next tea time. We found her yellow teapot at a thrift shop several years ago still in the box. We love the color and unusual shape. I'll miss it whenever she has a larger kitchen and takes it to Denver!
The best part of all was visiting the Nativity Room. Church members and friends bring in family Nativity sets to remind everyone of the ultimate gift. There is a variety of styles and countries where they were made. I didn't think to bring my camera along and most likely wouldn't have been able to get good pictures in the darkened room. A flash would have disturbed the calm, serene feeling of the room.

"To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God"
John 1:12

I'm joining Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday. Visiting her and others is a blessing and so much fun! ♥♫

Hello Marilyn,
What a wonderful and warm-coloured tea pot! It's very cute. Those spreaders are just adorable and wouldn't they be fun at your next tea party? Sounds like you had a lovely time at the Church Arts and Crafts Festival. The jellies and preserves are presented very nicely in their fruit themed bottles. Thank you so much, my friend, for joining me for tea today. It's always a pleasure having you! Hope you have a beautiful week.

Oh, what neat finds! I just love those spreaders. I actually have some in pastels very similar to those. They are really fun to use and I am sure you will enjoy them! That is a sweet tea pot too!

Happy Tea!

Hi Marilyn,
this teapot is very nice and the spreaders are really adorable. This will be a fun when you bring them on the table for your guests.
I can imagine how nice it was to see all this Nativity Sceneries from all over the world. We have here every winter an exhibition in a church with such Nativity Sceneries. This is so heartful to see.
Greetings, Johanna

Hey marilyn!
I love that they had a nativity room....that is so neat! :-) I bet it was so calm and serene in there...probably very reverent as well. :) Your little spreaders are so cute too...and who can resist jams and jellies! :)
I am really enjoying my crockpot! I gave my old one to my brother...he doesn't have anything like that, so I figured I would pass it least it's still in the family! :) I got it in 1985 at our wedding...we were such babies when we got married, I was only 17! Yikes! (we were very mature for our age though) We bought a house 2 years later and had our first baby a year after that. I wish some of the kids I see today were as mature! (I'm talking about my oldest son here...LOL) :) Well enough of that! I didn't realize they made crocks with removable inserts in 1977..we always had the ones that didn't come out, so I guess I just assumed they weren't out then. :) That's what I get for assuming!
Better scoot..have a great week!
Missy :)

I have no skills with my hands, so I'm always amazed at the creative things that people can make.
