A berry sweet gift
Our kitchen has strawberry-themed wallpaper, and I have somewhat of a collection of strawberry items. I've always liked them, and once people realize you collect something, they tend to find things for your collection. You can see some of my strawberry items here: Vintage Strawberries, or just click on "strawberries" in the label cloud to the right to see even more.
Interestingly, I have no duplicate strawberry items in my collection. One would think it would become harder to find unique things after awhile, but that hasn't been the case. Recently, my mother-in-law gifted me with the little set pictured above. She was so worried that I probably had one just like it already. But no, I don't. This is a very pretty mug, and the set also includes a little tray, which is a nice idea for enjoying a mug of tea with a few cookies or a muffin.
The set also included a coaster, seen under the mug in the photo above. A berry sweet gift that I am enjoying so much!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
