Tea Party Tuesday ~ Vintage Pastel Snowflake and Snowmen Cookies for Tea!

Happy Tea Party Tuesday!

Today, I am bringing something 
I feel is pretty special to tea.

Vintage Pastel Snowflake & Snowmen Cookies!!!

Inspiration for the designs come from

These are special because I am normally
petrified of sugar cookies and royal icing. 
Flood this...pipe that....EEEEEEEEKKKK!

This set is the best I have done so far, so 
 why not share them on the last 
Tea Party Tuesday before CHRISTMAS!!!!! 

It is also my pleasure to share this stunning holiday
teapot that was gifted to me by my dear neighbor and 
tea room loving buddy, Kim. 

Here is how Websters Dictionary defines sweetheart:
Sweetheart: Trisha's neighbor with beautiful milky white skin, 
who is the best mother on the planet, not to mention loyal friend and caring, 
intelligent woman who often goes by the eponym, Kimmie.

Recently, while shopping and tea rooming with
Kim, I purchased this regal gold laced teacup!

Isn't it stunning?  I think so too!

So dear tea friends, I just want to wish everyone a 
very Merry Christmas or whatever holiday or not 
you chose to celebrate. I thank each and every one of you
for your visits, comments, posts and inspirations all year long. 

Sharing tea on Tuesday has become such a source of joy and
excitement for me. I find it very enriching!
~ Thank you ~

I love your holiday tea pot!!
Merry Christmas,

I love these cookies! Oh how I wish I lived closer to you! It seems as if you are blogging away and I am not finding the time to get anything posted.....So thank you for making me smile!

Hello Trisha
The cookies turned out great, I'd love to have a snowflake with my tea.
You have a kind and generous neighbour, who's also a good friend to gift you with the beautiful teapot. I hope you'll enjoy many teas together.
A pretty teacup you bought with an elegant handle.
Thanks for having me for tea each week, it's been rewarding to see your fancy baking and meet other guests.
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012.
