Tea Cup Tuesday-Giveaway Winners!!!

Hello All,
It is a celebration tea today
as I award the prizes from my Giveaway!

 I have chosen a new cup to share
and some cake perfect for a simple celebration tea time
on the sunny balcony.

I found this  pink frilly cup in Savannah
one afternoon when I was recently
at the beach for a few days.

She was sitting in a glass curio all by herself. 
After waiting patiently for her case to be unlocked...
I found her in perfect shape,
I practically skipped to the register! 

  She is an upright cup with a classy footing in gold trim.

Her corset waist is adorned with a profusion of lovely flowers.

 *So pretty*

 Her scrolled handle is gold
as is her trim and some filigree on the cup. 
I love the little gold star like flowers.

 I'll just pour myself a cup of English Breakfast...

Oh and I must not forget....
 a cake that just shouts 'Hooray"!
My daughter baked it herself.
I thought it the perfect dessert for my celebratory tea.

Her backstamp indicates that Foley was the manufacturing company.
She was made somewhere between 1948 and 1963.
3007 is her pattern number, 
but I didn't have any luck locating the name. 

 Now it is time to put down my cup of tea and announce the 
winners of my Creative Workshops celebration giveaway!
As always I wish I wish I wish I had a gift for
every single one of you...(boo hoo!)

Giveaway Happiness : )

Hello All!
I get so excited about giveaways I do tend to add on....

I created a little matchbox for all my Domino class kit goodies...
so I wanted to update you on it...

When I embellished this box, I used wires and ribbon to hold instead of glue.
This way, all the little bits on top can be used in mixed media projects as well.
It is intended as a class kit for my Altered Domino Book class at Creative Workshops.
But you could use these tiny items for any art.

I squeezed in as much goodness as I could!
There is an envelope and a little match box filled with small images
 as well as some pearls and beads.
Some tissue paper transfers
some lace that I dyed, 
as well as a tiny Christmas tree...


Here are the links to each of my giveaway posts so you will not miss any!

Buddha's Herbs Tea Giveaway!

Hello All!
I have recently been given the opportunity to try a new tea.
Tim, at Buddha's Herbs asked if I would be willing to give it a try and 
then share it with you all if I like.

I was so surprised to receive a box full of teas!
These are high quality teas.
It didn't take me long to get the kettle on!
I tried the Chamomile first, as that is my daily drink,
and I also tried the Raspberry tea. 

I enjoyed both teas.
The chamomile was smooth, 
and not a hint of bitterness that you often
find with tea bag chamomile. 
The raspberry was earthy with a strong 
aroma of berries. Delicious too.

Win a one month’s supply of Buddha’s Herbs Green Tea!

What a generous offer!

Here is what the company says about their tea: 

Buddha’s Green Tea is formulated to prevent fatigue, enhance vitality,
and boost antioxidants. 

Buddha’s unique blend contains chamomile flowers for comfort and relaxation,
as well as relieve minor stomach pains, and thyme as a herbal antiseptic for upper respiratory health.  

Buddha’s Herbs unique formulation is made of 100% natural ingredients,
with no artificial colors or preservatives. 

The teas are packed in ecologically friendly filter bags, with no glue or metal. 
Airtight envelopes seal in natural flavors and aromas.

All of this sounds good to me!

If you would like to enter to win a month supply of this tea,
then leave a comment  on this post below. 

Thank you Tim for this opportunity to share...

Best of luck to you all,
and if you haven't already signed up for my other major giveaway's

Tea Cup Tuesday- Happy Autumn

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!

It is official,
Summer is over : (

and fall is here...
: )

Welcome Autumn!

The evenings are suddenly chilly,
 and the maple tree's leaves are beginning to turn. 

There is something invigorating
in the first breaths of fall.....

I took my breakfast out to the porch this morning,

It is the first time this year I thought
my tea might cool too soon...

There was cold breeze blowing.

But the sun was drenching everything in warm light. 

My yellow rosebush which had languished all summer,
has now become comfortable and 
burst out in flower!
She is gracing my morning tea with 
her beauty.

A little homemade yogurt and berries...

Tea in one of my favorite cups.

Delicious and peaceful.
I hope you too have a moment of tea and peace 


And by the way...
I am having a big giveaway!
 (a rosey tea cup is involved as well)

All video content is available the very first day class opens.

Tea Cup Tuesday-Last Summer Tea

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!

It is the last Tuesday this summer...
and time to say goodby to one season and welcome another.

I chose this beautiful delicately colored aqua cup
to commemorate this past season.

The gold swirls remind me of waves....

The lively floral bouquet really says summer!

This lovely cup was manufactured by E.B.Foley.
This company created consistently gorgeous china.

I have luckily landed quite surprisingly at the beach!
Dear friends of ours have come for a visit and they wanted to
see the ocean....of course!
I must say....it is gorgeous today : )

I am so Thank Full!

I am having a giveaway!

This lovely new cup with a vintage look!
