I did get some tea related gifts as well, including a teapot calendar for my kitchen.
Here is a picture of the back with all the different scenes for the year.
One thing I typically do on December 26 is check out the after Christmas sales to see if there is anything I would like left, especially now that it is cheaper! While out, I stopped in Old Town Manassas. In addition to the sales, I enjoy going around while the decorations are still up to stretch the season just a bit longer. Here are some of the prettiest things I saw this year:

(this pretty red and white tablescape is in the Opera House Gourmet, which is particularly known for its wine selection)
I also stopped into one of my favorite Old Town Manassas stores, The Things I Love. This store also serves tea (see here for my post from this past summer), but at Christmastime it transforms into a winter wonderland. I didn't get to this store until the afternoon, so many of the ornaments were gone from the trees, but I did get a shot of the afternoon tea themed tree (of course!)
She also had some fun tea themed gifts:
There was a whole wall of these picture frames, and the sayings were too cute to pass by without taking a picture to share.
I'm just enjoying having time now to relax and visit different places. I should take off more time before Christmas!
