All the way from Sand Country!

I got a wonderful surprise tonight. When we came home from Lake Charles today and the post office had delivered the trunk George had mailed home with his extra stuff. As he unpacked it he said he had a surprise for me. I tore open the packaging to reveal this beautiful, tiny marble pitcher followed by six tiny cups and resting plate. Sure enough, my husband found me a tea set in Afghanistan. I quickly cleared off the top of my glass table and set it in its new home. I took a picture later ...




When he came home on SUnday he said he had a gift that he carried around with him for the past few months ... this beautiful golden turtle. It's shell opens up too. The pictures a little off, but it's beautiful just the same. I am slowly collecting treasures on this journey we cal military life.
