A gift of a New Country Roses tea mug

It is always fun to me when I receive as a gift something that I had wanted but resisted buying for myself. Do you ever find that happening? I can't tell you how many times I've picked up this New Country Roses pink mug at T.J. Maxx over the last year or so, but I always thought no, it's too expensive and you don't need one more tea mug. But when my stepdaughter and family visited for Thanksgiving and handed me a bag containing Christmas gifts, I was delighted to find this among the goodies inside!

I love all these "New Country Roses" variations on the classic Old Country Roses pattern. Old Country Roses was my mother's china pattern, and there's a reason it's the best-selling dinnerware pattern in the world. Oh, those lush roses!

Since it was a Christmas gift, I plopped a bag of Twinings Christmas Tea inside and enjoyed a mug full of this yummy tea, which of course tasted even better in such a pretty new mug!


  1. It is so pretty! How nice that they found a gift you'd admired but not bought for yourself.

  2. See what happens when you put the "wish" out there! !!!! Lovely!

  3. That tea cup is beautiful. I am so happy for you now tha tyou have one. Enjoy.

  4. I've not seen new country roses. It's very pretty.

  5. Oh, Angela it is absolutely gorgeous! How sweet a gift is that?!!
