I absolutely love the glasses your wonderful tea was in. Can you tell me where you got them. My mother had some almost like that when I was a little girl years ago! Thank you, ps my son works in the Atlanta Airport and met Paula Deen and had his picture taken with her. She was so so nice to him - he loves her!!
