While I was thrifting with Jane last week in southern Maryland, I hit the Lenox jackpot at the thrift store in Solomons, MD!  My mom has a Lenox problem, I mean, collection. Actually, she has two Lenox collections. One in Massachusetts and one in Florida. I snagged several pieces which had come from an estate sale on Staten Island, NY for her:

Mom tells me she had seen the larger platter for $125 in an antique store. I bought it for a whole lot less! I brought these lovelies to the UPS store in Maryland and had them shipped to Mom in Florida. An early Christmas!

At Whole Foods this week, I found this beautiful lavender Christmas tree:

The beginning of my Christmas decorating!

Dinner tonight. A Dutch Baby filled with Maine wild blueberries: 

I use Martha Stewart’s recipe and add blueberries. The batter gets whipped up in the blender and then cooked in a cast iron skillet in the oven. Deliciousness. 

Finally, a photo of Emma and Etta on the beach from last week:

Aren’t they just adorable? 

Yours, Merryweather
