T Stands for a Holiday Toast

Happy Holiday T Day everyone. Tuesday has arrived once again. As this is the final T day before Christmas, the vacationing Santa in my photo is wishing you a toast to celebrate (or to those of you who have already  been celebrating) whatever winter holiday you chose- Hanukkah, Christmas or even the upcoming Kwanzaa.
And I am sure there are other holidays celebrated around the solstice also.
So whatever you celebrate, cheers!
And I will toast with this mug of yummy coco from my favorite hole in the wall breakfast place which I visited a few weeks ago. With real whipped cream on top of course.
Be sure to stop by   our lovely hostess  Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog  and see what the ladies are up to this week. We also love you to join us!
And I have a holiday card to share.
 I swapped holiday cards with Kathy and here's the beautiful postcard she sent. It's a little crooked not because I photographed it crooked (although this winter light does make havoc) but because I tape my cards to my dining area hutch. I still need to mail the rest of my cards,  and hopefully I will get to it soon or I will need to  make Happy New Year cards. :)
I'll most likely be posting a couple of  times before the week is out, but I know many of you will be busy. So as I write this on a snowy Monday night, sipping lemon and honey tea because I am trying to keep a head cold from turning into a holiday disaster, I wish all you lovely T ladies a Merry Christmas.

First off- I love your festive header and then your equally festive post! Beautiful card from Kathy. Love the Santa cheers and that luscious mug of cocoa! Be well, happy T day and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Your head cold doesn't sound good. I hope it doesn't turn into something worse.

I simply adore your little vacationing Santa. He's adorable. I've never seen one like him before, although I know you have a Santa collection.

Your hot chocolate looks wonderful. I considered drinking some earlier today, but chose coffee instead, since I needed the caffeine rush.

Thanks for sharing your Santas, your cocoa, and your postcard with us for T this Tuesday.

hohoho, my favorite drink of the season also is hot chocolate with cream:)

Oh yum I love hot cocoa but we have been so warm here still that I have not thought of it-cold coming in for Christmas though.
One year I was just so behind on everything that I decided to make early Spring cards for everyone instead of sending out Christmas cards. I really loved your handmade card very much-and I do hope your cold does not escalate for the holidays-no fun.
Merry Christmas and Happy T Day Kathy

YUM!!!! The coco looks so good. I haven't had a cup yet this season... we are still having days in the 50's here and so dry... so un-Christmas weather. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit and I hope I don't overload everyone with all things twins... WE ARE EXCITED ♥
Happy T Day and The Merriest of Christmas to you and your family!!!

Merry Christmas Erika!
Your hot cocoa looks super delicious with the whipped cream as a crown!
Love the card.
Happy T-day

The hot chocolate looks great with that mound of real whipped cream, but I'm with vacation Santa. Is it July, yet? =^,.^= Sorry you're feeling under the weather. Hope the lemon and honey tea work. Feel better!

Your Hawaiian shirt santa looks so jolly with his cocktail 😁. The mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream is perfect for me too, I bet I'd have a white moustache from all that 😉...yum! Your Christmas card from Kathy is stunning and I actually have that stamp on my wish list too, it looks so beautiful with the copper embossing powder (now on my wish list too 😀). Stay warm and healthy this holiday season and wishing you a Happy T Day and a very Merry Christmas! J 😊

Jeanie said...

Oh Erika! I love your Santas! They are so darned happy, I smiled when that first photo came up! And Kathy's card is wonderful!

Merry and Happy. Your vacation is nearly here!

Love your tropical Santa, Erika. I can't tell the scale in your photo. At first I thought it was a real person dressed up as Santa - lol. Pretty postcard from Kathy.

I hope you'll able to knock that cold out of your system before the big day.

Marry Christmas and Happy T_day! Hugs, Eileen

Love both of your Santas! Your drink does look yummy! Kathy's card has one of my favourite images - I think I will have to buy that stamp one day!! Take care with your cold, hope you feel better soon! Have a wonderful Christmas if I don't get back here! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx

I love that gorgeous vintage cottage image - a charming card. And I'm glad to see that glasses (and mugs) are already being raised round your way!
