Whenever I visit the Thrifty store I always look for tea cups first
and I was so delighted to come across this sweet tea cup.
Of course it had to come home with me :)
And it now has a special place with all of my other tea cup treasures.
I find the colors to be so bright and cheerful.
I think it's time to enjoy a lovely cuppa tea in my "new" tea cup
and some tasty oatmeal butterscotch cookies freshly baked and warm from the oven.
The cookies have a delicious aroma thanks to the cinnamon and cloves.
Here is the recipe for you to enjoy.
