Tea Time

Going to the city is always entertaining. Shopping is one of those things that is more fun in Denver. Choices...and more choices. On the way to the Christmas section of Target we passed this sweet child's tea set.
Apparently it is a Target exclusive item. Love the colors and the polka dots!

We don't do big gifts in our families, so there is no need for me to go shopping on Black Friday, or whatever the day after Thanksgiving is called.  Crowds tend to make me very uncomfortable, so I'll be staying home enjoying my long weekend!

Sarah and I went to the Sugar Plum Bazaar  and squeezed through the crowds to see some fine looking items for sale. People everywhere! And gigantic purses! Some of the women were totally oblivious where those huge bags were! I guess it was "out of sight, out of mind" for them.

Found a couple of skeleton keys,  an unusual strawberry fork, a baby fork, and some buttons covered in vintage textiles.  The oval platter was a thrift find at GW for 99 cents. It's Johnson Brothers and made in England!  I think I finally found one of those bargains people talk about.

Wishing you all a peaceful Thanksgiving! I will be thinking about the many blesssings I have and sharing food and fellowship with my family.
