I am joining Debbie at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas for her Christmas in July Party.
I have a few things to share with you today so please grab a cup of tea, coffee, or iced tea and relax.
A few months ago I was browsing the Anne of Green Gables Store and I found this adorable little Christmas tree. Well, it just had to come home with me because it was all glittery and decorated with adorable little ornaments.
Some of the Christmas ornaments on the tree remind me of beach balls so in a way, it's perfect for Christmas in July! What do you think?
I also have this darling Christmas robin tea towel which accompanied a couple of Irish linen tea towels from Ireland. A few months back I did a review on these towels and the Christmas robin tea towel was included. It's very festive and pretty with Merry Christmas, Yultide, Noel, Seasons Greetings all written it.
My Uncle Doug who is from England tells me the robins in Europe are smaller than our robins here in North America.
They are about the size of our chickadees only with the colouring of the robin. I would love to see a real one. They must be adorable!
I'm very pleased to have this tea towel and it will get lots of use once the holidays roll around.
For Mother's Day, my hubby gifted me with some pieces of Johnson Bros. Old Friendly Village which I am collecting. The Old Friendly Village pattern is unique in that each piece has a different scene on it.
The teacup and saucer has a winter scene on it so I felt it was Christmasy enough to share with you. The scene on the teacups is "The Ice House."
Hubby also gave me this pretty square plate. The pattern on this piece is "The Covered Bridge."
New Brunswick, Canada which is where I was born, has some of the nicest covered bridges in the country so this plate is especially dear to me!
I made my Sticky Date Pudding with Hot Toffee Sauce this week.
I make this delectable dessert twice a year; at Christmastime and in July. This year, I made it for my Anne of Green Gables Tea which you can find here on my other blog, Rose Chintz Cottage, should you wish to check it out.
You can find the recipe for this wonderful dessert here.
Well, that's my Christmas in July post this week. Thank you Debbie for hosting this fun event.
As you all know, Christmas is never very far from my thoughts even in the middle of the summer.
Christmas in my heart all year round ~ Sandi
