Today, dear friends, marks my 1,000th blog post! Although the tea and the topics have been great fun to explore, I must say that the *tea friends* I've met along the way have been my biggest blogging blessing. Some of you I've "met" through your own blogs, some I've "met" via e-mail and comments, and there are a few I've even been blessed to meet face to face, including local ladies who I've learned share my passion for tea! So today, it seemed appropriate to have a fun giveaway just to say "Thank you for reading my blog!" For starters, the winner will receive this oversized teacup and saucer with Judith Glover's charming artwork featuring designs that include teawares.
There must be tea, of course, so I stopped by Teavana at Lenox Mall and picked up a package of their Almond Biscotti Tea because it just sounded so yummy!
In case you want to make your tea right away and don't have an infuser or strainer handy, you'll get some Melita tea filter bags that will make tea by the cup or by the pot.
And if you have any spills whilst making your tea, well then by golly you can clean those hands in style with this White Tea Pomegranate hand soap I found at HomeGoods. But wait -- there's more!
A couple of tiny travel-size bars of Lucia's Tea Leaf and Wild Honey Soap. (I picked these up in Wisconsin a few weeks ago fully intending them for this giveaway.) But that's not all! Act now, and you'll also receive ...
A selection of Mary Engelbreit baking products from Michaels! You'll get cookie cutters, including a teapot-shaped one, cute cupcake liners, and a new product to me, Food Tattoos, which transfer the design into the icing on cookies, cupcakes, etc., and a few of them even feature teapots. To enter, all you have to do is tell me the last cup or glass of tea you sipped. (Mine was iced Lemongrass Green Tea.) Just be sure to leave your comment before 7 a.m. EST tomorrow. Good luck, and thank YOU again for making my blogging experience such a happy one!
