12.2.2019: Countdown to Christmas – 23

Hello Everyone!! We’ve got 23 days until Christmas!! Today I am trying Twinings Camomile, Honey & Vanilla Herbal Tea. Normally I don’t drink Camomile tea because I am not a huge fan of its floral taste and honestly I sneak in a nap whenever I can with the little guy here so I don’t need anything to help me sleep. However, my great aunt said this is her favorite tea and I wanted to try it out.

I surprisingly am enjoying this tea! It still has a strong camomile floral flavor, but the amount of honey and vanilla mixed in is perfect. The tea cup is Made in England by Royal Vale and seemed like an elegant fit for a tea my great aunt had suggested.

If you look at the top of my bridal shower cake you will see this tea cup. It was a wonderful part of my bridal shower and has been enjoyed for almost five years now. You may also be wondering why my first picture has a porcelain doll in it.

Every summer from age 8 to 19 I went with my great aunt once a week to a doll shop to make porcelain dolls with her. It is one of my favorite summer memories. I used to put the doll I made each year into the county fair. The last photo is the Christmas tree topper she made and gave to me. Since I’ve been married, we put it on top of our tree each year.
