Tree, Halvah, and a gift to myself
The tree in the sun room has a Teddy bear tree skirt and a wild assortment of teddy bears around the base. Actually, just earlier the bears had to squish together so my granddaughter could put the Nativity set up. It always has a spot right underneath the tree. I should have waited to take the picture until she was done.
Are you familiar with Halvah? It is a sort of cake made with ground sesame seeds and honey. It's a tradition around here at Christmas and this year we chose one with Pistachios. Yumm! ( We had to sample it!)
I was in the thrift store on Friday and bought myself a Christmas present. I wasn't going to buy any more china ( running out of space) but this set is so delicate and pretty I gave in. The words underneath are Seltmann weiden Germany USZ. I looked it up and it would seem that this marks it as made between 1946 and 1948. ( The USZ stands for U.S. zone)
Thanks for coming by. I hope you have a great week ahead.
