Sock it to me!


The other night I was driving home from a trip to the Jo-Ann store in Fayetteville when I got behind a car with this license plate: "6FT2GAL." Now I dearly love a good license plate, so I told my husband about it, and he very practically pointed out, "You know, that's not the kind of thing you really have to announce." Indeed! So I guess you could say "feet" were on my mind that evening because when I was at the Jo-Ann store I came across some great little footie socks in their $1 bins. (Technically they are now the $2.50 bins, but I first knew them as the $1 bins, so that's what I call them.) There were several footie designs featuring coffee mugs and teacups. They were marked two pair for $2.50, but they were on sale and rang up 97 cents for two pair if any of you have a Jo-Ann nearby and want to look for these.

Also on the theme of coffee/tea/chocolate, I found this adorable tin of mints the other day at Hastings. Even though it's mochaccino flavor, I believe this can qualify as a "tea lover's treat" because the tin is clearly teacup-shaped.

And guess what? I'm giving away the above socks and mints today, along with some brand new samples of Mighty Leaf Tea, to one lucky winner. Just leave a comment between now and 7 a.m. EST Tuesday and you'll be entered to win. Good luck!

(P.S. Here are the socks I got for myself, in case you want to look for them when you visit Jo-Ann. The bottom pair was an orphaned set, so I imagine there's at least one more cute design out there!)
