On Saturday I spent the day in the Marietta area shopping with my Aunt Jane. These were the only two tea-related items I picked up, but I love both of them!
First, this dessert/luncheon plate from America's Thrift Stores is just the size I like, 7-1/2 inches in diameter. Wish I had more of these--especially for the 79 cents I paid for this one. Unlike teacups, which demand a bit of storage space, plates are easy to add to a stash. Besides, I like having pretty plates on hand for styling photos, especially when the roses are so pretty. There was no mark on this plate at all, so I'm stumped as to the maker and the pattern.
And although I rediscovered a few lost oven mitts last week, I saw this pretty, thick, teacup and bird design oven mitt at HomeGoods for $4.99 and had to have it. My friend Phyllis recently found some pot holders in this pattern up in Michigan, and I loved the pretty blue print. Have you had any tea shopping success lately?
