T stands for.... tea at Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone......a sentiment echoed in my Journal page! 

I sat watching Mary Poppins on Christmas Eve - the first time I have actually sat and watched the whole film- I have seen snippets here and there so some scenes weren't a complete surprise!
While I watched I was also attacking the magazine mountain which was where I spotted this image!
I can often find just the background start I need for a quick page but today after we returned from my son's house I had to make a quick background which was simply.... paint - applied with baby wipes and sponge, marks made with a pen lid and the wooden end of a paintbrush and some scribble writing!

I know I'm late for Bluebeard and Elizabeth's T Stands for Tuesday and I will have to make most of my visits tomorrow but I really wanted to wish my T friends a Merry Christmas!
I am also linking to Art Journal Journey for Elizabeth's My favourite season or'tis the season theme!

I hope you all had a wonderful day!
Thanks for looking, Chris

I know I'm late and also late wishing you a Merry Christmas. I've been switching between Die Hard and a Homicide Hunter marathon. It's been a murderously great day for me. I hope yours was just as enjoyable doing something you enjoyed, too.

Your tea images were perfect. I love them dearly. I loved everything about it from the scribbly writing to the tea pot and those cups, especially the one with the hot cocoa and peppermint canes. They are perfect for T this Tuesday. It's still Tuesday where I live at least!

This also warmed my heart because you chose to share this beauty with us at Art Journal Journey. It's the perfect festive entry for there, too, dear Chris.

What a great page - but I am gobsmacked that you've only just watched Mary Poppins all the way through for the first time! It is one of my favourite films and watch it every time it's on tv. Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day and are enjoying today too.

I've seen the original Mary Poppins movie several times and always get a kick out of it. I've no interest in this new one. Now I _would_ be excited about a movie that faithfully adapted the book ;)

I love your festive tea treats page :) Merry Christmas!

What a lovely festive page Chris!
I recorded Mary Poppins, but I haven't had a chance to watch anything yet. Seen it a few times though ;-)
So looking forward to the new film too!

And a Merry Christmas to you too, Chris! I love your page and loved hearing how you can do a quick background. I need lessons in that (grin).

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
