Christmas Countdown

Christmas Memories in My Heart is a place for me to share all things related to Christmas, which is my favorite time of the year. I plan and prepare for the holidays all year, so that I can enjoy that busy time without having to stress about shopping and all the details of the season.

I am actually able to decorate and then enjoy the spirit of the holidays and celebrate Jesus' birth and the reason for the season.

You can find links to my three favorite holiday sites in my sidebar. They are Organized Christmas, Our Home for the Holidays, and Magical Holiday Home. All three of these special places are like my home away from home. I have cyber friends there who I feel a great bond with and we share a common love of Christmas. We understand each other and support each other in our quest to have magical, wonderful holidays.

Please come back to visit often.

Christmas Teapots

I logged onto HSN on Wednesday when they were having their Christmas in July sale and bought the cutest little teapot and cup for one. It says On the First Day of Christmas!|best_sellers

I will gladly use this on what I refer to as the first official day of Christmas---Black Friday or the day after Thanksgiving. This will be a new tradition for me. Then I will enjoy my little special pot of tea again on the real First Day of Christmas, which is Dec. 26. It will be even more special to start this tradition on that day of reflection of the holiday season and the countdown of the 12 days to the epiphany.|best_sellers

This adorable teapot was only $8! It should be arriving any day. I wish I would have bought a couple more for gifts.

Tonight, I checked back on HSN to see if they had any left. (they do!!!!!)

I found this other teapot that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

It is perfect for Rudy Day as it is bright red and features Rudolph!!!!|best_sellers

They also have a matching cake platter, complete tea set for 8 and some dessert plates in the Rudolph pattern. I think they are overpriced, though. I am thinking about treating myself to a teapot though!

It's beginning to look like Christmas...

I can't wait to watch QVC's Christmas in July show this weekend. I usually don't buy anything, but you never know and it is so wonderful to watch all the holiday things on television.
