A visit to see my parents, more often than not, means I am going to leave with some new treat. This time, both my parents found goodies for me. My mom found these tea mugs, some with the price stickers still on them, at a yard sale for 25 cents apiece, so she got all four. (I am *such* an amateur shopper when compared with my mom!)
And Daddy was proud to have found another Santa Claus mug to add to my collection. This one, interestingly, says it was "Made in Thailand."
My favorite of the new tea mugs is this chintz one with the swirling handle, and to go in it, I found at T.J. Maxx a box of that delightful Dilmah Peppermint and English Toffee Tea I was so fondly remembering just last week!
My best find of the weekend, though, was a surprise discovery of a dozen amber glasses at a T.J. Maxx in Marietta. I had been trolling my local antique stores in search of old or new amber glasses, any amber glasses at all, and I'd finally given up hopes of finding them in time for this Thanksgiving.
T.J. rarely lets me down, and when I found six each of these two designs, I knew immediately I'd be using them to serve the tea at this year's Thanksgiving meal. Yet another small thing to be thankful for this week!
