NON-RED DEC'S AND DECEMBER TAG-ALONG

This is an antique teacup with antique Christmas spoons.

I first saw this ad on the web somewhere earlier this year, and was intrigued by the idea of Christmas spoons! So I checked out eBay and, of course, they had quite a selection. So I bid on, and won, two of them. Close-ups are below.






I finally finished my December Tag-Along a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting to post it! I started making my Tag-Alongs in the month of March, so I still have January and February to complete my group.

Of course, to me, December IS Christmas. So that's all my tag is about!


This is a scanned version. The "I Love Christmas" and the ornaments are raised up, which isn't noticeable in the above photo.

We're just starting a 24-hour blizzard here in New England and are due for about two feet of snow! I'm sure all the school kids on vacation are all excited about this. Me? I'm hibernating all week! LOL!

Sue,
What an adorable tag! Love the frosted windows! Batten down the hatches time, huh????? Hope you are nice and snuggly and warm, watching the cold and snow be outside!

Your photos are such lovely eye candy! I don't believe I've ever seen or heard of Christmas spoons. Something else to look for when I go out 'junking'. Enjoy your snow days.
