Although I didn’t buy any cups or teapots in Canada, I added two teapots to my collection.
My sister-in-law found this little collectible Tetley teapot for me at a yard sale. It was a Tetley Tea promotional item in Canada and was available by sending in product UPC’s. I remember seeing this a while back, but wasn’t able to order it from the USA.
Since I already had a Tetley Teapot and a collectors tin, I now have a collection.
The tin has a lot of interesting teapots pictured with dates.
The other teapot that I brought back from my trip was one that had belonged to my favorite Aunt, Betty. My uncle said he wanted me to have this tea for one set.
This “Strawberries” pattern has been discontinued for a while.
My summer bargains were all found at Belk. This is my favorite department store. I buy most of my clothes there when they have their red line clearance sales. This weekend they are having an additional 50% off the clearance price sale. I was able to purchase four items for my Grandson, six tops (two evening) for my daughter-in-law and five items for myself including a lovely pair of Life Stride dress sandals for the bargain price of less than $100. That was a saving of $366.8l – wow!
Of course I came home ravenous and made a quick lunch – chicken salad on whole wheat with lettuce and tomato, homemade sweet pickles, grapes, arrowroot biscuits and Earl Grey tea.
The Arrowroot biscuits also came from Canada. They are my favorite cookie to enjoy with a cup of tea – not too sweet. Of course they must be dunked in the hot tea for maximum enjoyment.
There doesn’t seem to be a similar cookie available in Georgia. Maybe I’ll have to ask relatives to ship them to me.
You can find these biscuits online here.
