I think one of my favorite things is tea and I have a small (intentionally) tea pot collection. There's just something about a tea pot that I love & I always have a variety of teas on hand. My children all drink hot tea with me which makes me happy. I was born in England and my parents maintained the British tradition of daily tea 365 days per year. I can't say that I drink tea a lot in the summer but in the winter, like now, I make at least one pot per day.

This Christmas I used one of my favorite tea pots that friend Colleen, from Pasadena, gave me about 15 years ago. It's from the Villeroy and Boch Naif Christmas set. I found this photo on the internet. The scenery on the image is just beautiful and I love this tea pot & I love that Colleen gave it to me. I think of her every time I use it though I relocated 450 miles from her in 1999.

Well, imagine my surprise and delight when I learned that Stampin' Up!s upcoming "Occasions Mini Catalog" has tea-themed products in it! I made these two cards using the Tea Shoppe set that will be available for purchase this Wednesday, January 4.
