Orange Spice and Pinwheels

I went to the Scandinavian Church Christmas bazaar on the weekend where I picked up a few goodies from their huge bake sale area.
The prune pinwheels were a tasty acquisition and I really like this Orange and Spice tea from HyVee. The tea was gifted to me from my friend Beth at Beyond the Garden Gate when she and her husband came to stay with us this summer. 
I finally broke down and bought one of the birdie teapots I've been admiring on other blogs and for $12 at HomeSense, it was a good deal. The bird to the left of the teapot is a creamer I won in a giveaway package from Sandi at one time.
I'm linking with these ladies for their Tuesday tea gatherings:

  2. I've always enjoyed seeing them. There isn't a Home Sense close, or I'd have one too! I love the Christmas Bazaars & bake sales this time of year! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  5. Scandinavian Church bazaar ? That sounds like a bazaar I'd have to attend especially for the sweets ! Did they sell lefse and rosettes too ?

    I have always admired ( coveted )that bird topped teapot and now that I know where to buy it I'll have to check it out.

    Your tea-time looks like a real treat today.

  6. Oh my! I'm really thrilled, Judith! Those prune pinwheels are exactly like the ones we always make for Christmas!!
    Baking gingerbread cookies is the most important tradition, but pinwheels (you can prepare them also with apple jam) are very much liked as well.

  8. Hi Judith. I really like that orange and spice tea also. Enough flavor without adding a sweetener for me.

  13. Oh, I do love those teapots too. I would have bought that cute teapot, too! Those pinwheel cookies look very tasty.
    It's so fun to be part of this little tea community, and see a creamer from Sandi, and tea from Beth.
    Wish we could all have tea together sometime.

  19. Those pinwheels look delightful, Judith. I knew I would regret not getting that same teapot. A few weeks ago, Hubby and I saw it at Winners and he offered to buy it for me. I said that I really didn't need another teapot and he said that I would regret it. He was right! I love the shape of it. I'm glad you got one and I will enjoy seeing yours when you feature it. Sweet tea setting! Thank you for coming to tea and enjoy your day.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  20. I wish you hadn't said how much you paid for the bird teapot! Now I want to rush out and get one for myself (wouldn't it look nice in my blue kitchen!). The bake sale sounds yummy! You ARE having fun up there in the snow! Have a great day :) Wendy x

  21. Your teapot is adorable, Judith! We FINALLY got a Home Goods store here; we've had Marshall's and T.J. Maxx for some time but Home Goods is better. I wonder if Homesense is a relative? Glad you are enjoying the tea, Judith, and the pinwheels look fantastic! I'm ready to begin Christmas baking and decorating soon.
    Hugs, Beth

  29. First I start eyeing up those treats from the bake sale, then I start ogling your fantastic milk glass plate. Then I have to go back to imagining how those cookies taste, but I have to scan back to the lace on your plate. I am getting dizzy!

  31. I have seen that teapot on various blogs but it is such a beauty and that bird creamer, a real wannahave. The prune pinwheels look delicious and pretty too.

  32. Those prune pinwheels look amazing! My mom always made prune or date-filled sugar cookies. Delicious. I also loved the Scandinavian treats of Sandbakkels and Krumkake (probably both spelled wrong). LOL
