T Stands for Tuesday Tree Mugs



If you were here yesterday, you saw I used the clear glass items as part of my mandala.  Today, this tree collection now acts as an extension of my coffee bar.  The cups/mugs and glass, all with trees, are ready whenever visitors stop by.

And even though the temperatures are frigid, I've chosen to drink eggnog, something I love, but only get at this time of year.

Since I've become addicted to showing close-up images, I thought this would show the creamy goodness and flakes of nutmeg floating in my mug.

And if you want to see the mug up close, here it is.  

Share your drink, weather, art, down time, up time, whatever.  If you link below, Bleubeard and I will be by for a visit.  And stay awhile if you like eggnog.  I can just hear Julia (of WOYWW fame) saying how much she LOVES eggnog (NOT!!!!).

I love eggnog too. I drink way too much of it. I am always happy to see it on the shelves.
It makes me smile to see you having so much fun with your new camera. Your photos are so crisp and clean.
I'll be back in the morning with my post.

Happy T Day!! I do love these cups, so festive and pretty. I haven't had eggnog in a long time, might have to go get some now after seeing yours.

Thank you for the comment yesterday. I'm glad you only looked at the mandala and can still be surprised today for the T time part of it.

If I had known about the pear tree in the summer that would have been great. Only stumbled upon it at this late time though and they were all on the ground and mostly rotten. I never knew we could grow pears here either. Yes, those berries had me working hard for sure but I had to use them.
Have a wonderful day!

see you there! said...

Your Christmas things are so cheerful. You are way ahead of me, I haven't pulled my decorations out yet - do it on the 15th.

Love the mugs and they made a great Mandala, and that plate is adorable. I'm not a big fan of eggnog, love the smell of it, but not the taste so much, but thanks for the offer....LOL

Thanks again for visiting my blog and always leaving wonderful comments. I really enjoy reading them.

Hello again, saw your comment about the Grinch and totally agree with you. Was surprised they didn't pick that one. It was so COOL in person!
I do love my tree and looking from outside in makes even me HAPPY!!
Thanks for visiting again.

Hello!! It's been a while but I made it here!! I didn't remember that you had tree mugs as well as a tree collection.
That egg nog looks so good. Makes me wish I had bought some at the store today.

Nice collection of tree glasses and mugs! I do believe I will share a glass of eggnog with you, too!

I am itching to get my decorating started, but hope to tackle the cards tonight first!

Happy T Day!
