A Cup of Rest

I just had to show you my new Christmas present-
Our kitchen has very cheap cabinets in it, and they
are falling apart.  So I have a plan to replace them
slowly, and hopefully eventually to have a kitchen
I really love!  Below are the cabinets that were
there before.  Sorry, I didn't clean them off before
I took the picture.  But, you get the idea.
After several months of watching Craigslist,
I was able to find this pretty solid oak china hutch,
that is just the right size, for only $130!  I was
so excited!  My husband and son were less excited,
since they had to go pick it up and haul it in,
but they love me so they did it.

It makes the perfect place to set out our tea service
for this afternoon!  I am looking forward to having
a little tea and fun with Miss E when she wakes up
from her nap.  We are using these "Romantic England"
tea cups by J and G Meakin.
After several Christmas programs last week,
we have a quieter week this week thankfully.
I do enjoy all the Christmas activities, but it's
also nice to stop for a little while and rest with
a cup of tea, don't you think?
I hope you can find time to rest
with a cup of tea this week too!
And remember these words of Jesus-
the one whose birth we are celebrating.
"Come to me, all you who are weary
and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28
I am joining Tea Time Tuesday today.


  1. What a gorgeous china hutch! I love it! And a Merry Christmas to you! Love your red transferware...that's a favorite pattern. This is indeed a busy time and that scripture is something we always need to have close by!

  2. Carmen, my dear, your new hutch is simply wonderful and was made for that space! I am so happy for you and your red tea set looks fabulous sitting there. I think you know how much I love red transferware and it is perfect for Christmas. Yes, the holidays can be a very busy time and it is important to take some time to have a cup of tea and ponder the real meaning of Christmas. His coming has given us salvation as well as a beautiful season to celebrate His birth. Thank you for joining me for tea today and Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!


  3. Your red transferware pieces are wonderful and your hutch is a great pieces for displaying all your pretties! I really enjoyed your posting!

  4. I think your new hutch is a great improvement and you have displayed your china so prettily. You are so right about remembering to take time to rest, and remember to enjoy these times with our families.

    I like your transferware, it perfect for tea ( or hot coco ) this time of the year !

  5. Hi: I am so glad you were able to join the party this week. I love how you decorated that beautiful hutch. Your transferware is beautiful. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  6. What a beautiful set of red transferware! Love your new hutch, too! I bought a used one too, painted it white and put it in my farm cottage kitchen. Love how they can hold so many dishes!
