Teatime Giveaway #45 - "The Pleasures of Tea" book

The winner of the "Vintage Tea Parties" book from last week is Susan of The Pink Ribbon blog, so congrats! If you'll send me your snail mail address via the e-mail button at right, I'll get this headed your way. And maybe November is going to be book month for giveaways, because this week I'm offering a copy of "The Pleasures of Tea" from Victoria magazine (1999). I was so happy when a thoughtful friend recently dropped off a copy of this book at my office, and she said if it was a duplicate I could feel free to give it away. I didn't think I had this one, but in fact I do. (I think I'm lacking one of the Victoria tea books, I just don't know which one.)

So I'm keeping the copy my friend gave me with her sweet note taped inside, and I'm giving away my old one, which is a good used copy. I decided it needs a good home, and I just know one of you will be willing to provide that! To be entered, just leave a comment to this post between now and noon EST on Friday, Nov. 16. Good luck!

Congratulations to Susan! I would certainly be happy to provide a good home for that particular little treasure! My quilting and tea books (along with my paperback copies of the Mitford series) are the only books I kept when we shifted to the RV. I adore tea books! Thanks, Angela! :)

Oh my word, well I just absolutely have to enter, though I am being greedy by doing so.

I would love to add this to my collection of tea books, wow, and isn't that chintz ch ina on the cover to DIE FOR gorgeous?

It is drool worthy, and if it is any indication of what's inside, well, WOW whoo hoo!!

(It's best not to judge a book by its cover, but that one may not apply!)

Thank you, Angela!

The joy of Tea Rituals is one of my favourite pastimes. I would LOVE this book for sure. Thanks for all your contributions

Gram said...

I already have this book, and I also have a breakfast tray set like this pictured on the cover - or it could be a tea tray for one. It is Welbeck by Royal Winton which Victoria presented in 1995. I bought the tea pot, 4 cup and saucer sets, plus 4 8 inch plates. I'm so glad I bought them then because they are so expensive now.
I do love reading your blog.
