This is one of the ways I relaxed over the week-end. While out shopping I saw this lovely old meat platter for just one dollar. Home it came with me and I am using it for a tea-tray. The tea sooo wonderful...its Cinnamon Twist by Justin Lloyd. Peggy, I found it online and my son encouraged me to order some. They shipped it out the same day and its the best tea I've ever tasted or at least I'm convinced it is. Here at home...I spent Saturday cleaning closets and sifting through boxes of old photos and whimsey. Things the children made in school and notes they wrote thier Father and I. Such sentimental treasures! Our bedroom is still 'trashed' for the time being with all the things I'm sorting through. It will be worth it all when I'm done *smile*. Just like the song..."It will be worth it all, when we see Jesus...Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ. One glimpse of his dear face all sorrow will erase, So bravely run the race...till we see Christ". Posted by Picasa

Ms. Maggie you not only have that wonderful tea (which I will now order some thanks to you) but you have my favorite cookie and the platter ideal is wonderful. I have a wall covered in these platters. I will take one down tonight and serve myself tea!

Hi sweetie! I just love the way you know how to pamper yourself...that platter, tea & bikkies look divine ~ just the inspiration I need to pull out one of my little favourites and enjoy a cuppa this afternoon with my beloved. Also what a wonderful feeling as a mother to go through all the cherished treasures our children made us...enjoy!

What a beautiful platter. You always see the beauty in things. I can almost smell the tea. Loved your gift tags too by the way.
