Tuesday's giveaway winner is ...

Ginger! If you'll send your snail mail address to, I'll get "A Social History of Tea" in the mail to you!

And since several of you asked about the pattern, I thought I'd let you know that heart-shaped tea set yesterday is unmarked except on the bottom of the box, which says Made in China. I didn't ask, but I would not at all be shocked to find my mother actually bought this months ago at a yard sale. At Christmas, I thought she had one of her greatest lines ever when she told everyone, "If you got something you didn't like, let me know and I'll see if I can remember what street I got it on so you can go back and exchange it."

Karen: Great idea about decoupaging the hat box! Thanks!


  1. Angela, your mom and I would get along great. I buy things for my daughters (Christmas and birthdays) at yard sales, flea markets and antique shops. They love it. Betty

  2. I think certain families must have that gene, Betty. My mother knows that if she wants to make me happy at gift time, please don't get me anything NEW. Ewwww!
