Are you ready for the Olympics?

BOM bom BOM bom BOM bom BOM bom ... and I don't know how to express the rest of the tune, but I'm excited about the London Olympic games starting tonight. Are you? As with the last summer games, I have found an official Olympic pin (actually three this time) that seems appropriate for tea-loving Olympics viewers. There are quite a few of these out there, and I'd encourage you to do a search for "tea Olympics pin" if you're curious about all the fun designs, but the three I bought are (and this is important!) #1) The Union Jack Teapot.

#2 The Tea Tray

and #3 The Tea Set.

Now, let's have a little game ourselves. You see, I purchased a duplicate of one of these pin designs, and it will be offered on my Saturday giveaway tomorrow. If you can guess which one it is today, I'll throw your name in the hat a second time if you enter on Saturday! I'll give you a clue: It's my favorite one. So ... is it #1 The Union Jack Teapot, #2 The Tea Tray or #3 The Tea Set? Let the games begin!

all are cute though. Who knew? Olympic tea pins. Great Idea

Marie said...

I'm thinking it is #3 since the set has flowers on it. Love the pins.

Karen O said...

I guess #1 because it really makes me think of the Olympics the most.

Gerri said...

The tea set?? I love them all!

Joy said...

Well, they are all wonderful, so I will pick my favorite, which is #1, with #3 a close runner up. But it might be #2 because it is so different! Who knows? I will stick with #1. SOOO cute, all of them.

Oh dear...#1 or 3? I think #3. I would be happy with any of them:)...

Rosemary said...

That little tiered tea tray is the cutest thing in my book!

The #3 looks right up your alley. ^_^

I'm guessing the teapot, but they are all great fun.

I'm guessing it's #1 because it looks the most official and a tea pot is a tea lover's quintessential emblem. Everything else follows it.

CindyN said...

I'm going with #3 because I think you like tea sets.

Julia said...

I LOVE #1, so will assume you might have liked it best also. :)

Julia said...

I LOVE #1, so will guess that you might have liked it best also.

Beth Rang said...

Marilyn said...

I am guessing #1 because it is so colorful and tells a perfect story.

Ginger said...

I love #1, so I'm going to guess that it's your favorite too.

Cindy A. said...

I bet it's #1 - the Union Jack teapot. That would be my favorite anyhow. Since my daughter, who also loves drinking tea, PGTips to be exact, was a gymnast and now coaches gymnastics I'm going to have to find some of these pins for our collections. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

Colleen said...

my goodness! who ever knew there were Olympic tea pins? It is funny that all three have been guessed, because I looked and thought *easy peasy answer- #1*. it is my favorite for sure.

Susan F. said...

I would guess your favorite is #3. But they're all adorable. Thanks for finding these!
