I'm sure I must have used up my allotment of blog posts about tea-themed ornaments for the year, so please forgive me for adding just one more. I always love to hear where others find tea ornaments, so I feel compelled to share sources in case one of these ornaments strikes your fancy as well. I found this teacup ornament from Portmeirion at a T.J. Maxx in Kennesaw, and it matches the two teapot ornaments I found at my T.J. Maxx here in Newnan. Sweet!
T.J. was also the source of this Spode ornament.
And thanks to a tip from ParTea lady, I made a point of going through all the blue boxes of Wedgwood ornaments at the Kennesaw Marshalls until I found this Wedgwood teapot ornament, the only one they had! I have been wanting one of these for years.
At an antique mall, I found a 2001 Hallmark teacup ornament in the box. A little online research revealed that Hallmark has made quite a few tea-themed ornaments over the years, and I've collected three so far.
And since Cracker Barrel had teacup ornaments like this last year, I was surprised to find they had some of the same designs this year ...
as well as a new one with Santa in a teacup. Cute!
Finally, this Cracker Barrel ornament isn't tea-themed, but as soon as I saw this angel, it occurred to me my crafty friends might have fun making similar ornaments using vintage handkerchiefs.
Here is the back of the angel, but I think I would probably resist cutting my vintage handkerchiefs. And this weekend, it's finally going to be time to put up my Christmas trees!
