One of the old Christmas songs I love is "A Holly Jolly Christmas," preferably the classic Burl Ives version. One of the lines in the song says, "I don't know if there'll be snow, but have a cup of cheer." With temps in the seventies and thunderstorms and flooding, there was no snow in our Georgia forecast, but thanks to my family, I can honestly say I got lots of "cups of cheer" this Christmas. The most meaningful ones were these my husband and I received from grandchildren Bella and Owen. Owen decorated his "Pop's" mug…
And Bella decorated mine with an "A" and symbols of peace, love, and joy. I love these mugs! They came in a gift basket filled with shortbread, coffee for Pop, a cookbook for me, and a gift certificate for both of us to visit a tea room!
The other new tea mug I received was a gift from my husband. While I suspect he gets weary of my correcting the spelling and grammar on the evening news (about which I am not usually silent), I'm grateful he's good-natured about it.
Finally, my other "sipping" gifts came from my sister's family. She asked for some ideas of things I wanted, so I happily directed her to Walmart and the Pioneer Woman's beautiful new teal glassware! Pretty sure I'll be using these to serve iced tea and water in the new year.
And I don't believe I've ever seen glassware that included a mark like this on the bottom. It's nice to know I'll always remember who made (or at least, designed) these glasses! So what tea gifts did you get this year? I always love to hear!
