Teacup Giveaway and Lucky Me!

Greetings, friends!

I sincerely hope you all have been well and happy!

I have been having so such fun with my sweet grandbaby -
please forgive me for neglecting you during this happy time!

I think of you all quite often!

Some time ago I was found myself the VERY lucky (and appreciative)
 recipient of a very generous giveaway of a full year's subscription to

Oh, my goodness, my rapidly beating heart!!!!!!!

The giveaway was hosted by the talented and very beautiful
Associate Editor of both Victoria & Teatime Magazines,
Melissa Lester.

Isn't she absolutely lovely?

She also writes a very sweet, humble, clever, devotional,
and very special must-read blog called 

Her blog is filled with the dreams, thoughts and personality
of one very truly and lovely lady.

I know my readers will definately want to add this blog to your favorites
if you haven't yet done so!

Thank you so much, Ms. Lester!

 I am absolutely thrilled about this win!

In fact I am so thrilled that I thought I'd celebrate by hosting another giveaway!

(Sharing the happiness of random acts of gifts received!)

The giveaway is for a vintage pink and yellow roses
teacup set and matching creamer,
which I usually fashion as a little mini vase for short-stemmed flowers.

It's a Japanese Royal Sealy.

This giveaway goes out to all my USA and Canadian friends.

I always welcome all comments, and be sure to make one today
if you would like to be entered in the giveaway!

You needn't have a blog of your own - and I am sorry
that I must limit this to US and Canada -
 the cost of shipping breakables internationally
is just too high. Please forgive me!

I will pick winners the last day of this month
 by some fun random form of choosing

I can't wait till the day my sweet little grand-daughter helps
 me choose the names out of one of my tea hats!

Until then I will settle looking at one of her sweet little dreamy smiles.

(This was taken last Thursday on one of her visits to me.)

I am absolutley head-over-heels in love.

As always, thank you for your visit and sweet comments!

Have a blessed day!

Hugs and prayers -

  11. What a sweet little girl. I can imagine the tea parties you will have with her. I have a grandson, my only grandchild. No tea parties for him, but we do love picnics together. Grandchildren are just the best! The place they hold in your heart is so diffrent than your own children. Thanks for the chance to win the pretty set. I am wishing for a granddaughter to share my collection of teacups with someday.

  13. There is nothing as special as having grands and spending precious time with them! I miss my Abby more than words can say and Alex is in college in another city and busy as can be. Thank God for that though as he is an amazing young man!

    I love "Tea Time" magazine! I'm a volunteer with Chemo Angels and one of my buddies loved tea...most any kind. I gave her a subscription to the magazine and several types of tea, tea cups, etc. Unfortunately, she lost her battle but I was thrilled to be able to add some good things to her life!
