A Thankful Giveaway and Tea

Hello Friends,

It has been one year since I've starting blogging!  I'm so thankful for all the precious friends I've met through blog land.  To celebrate my first year I'm having a drawing for a giveaway to all my followers.  Please leave a comment letting me know you would like to enter.  If you are not a follower please become one!  I'll be drawing the winner on December 1st.

I've picked some blues for the giveaway.  A pretty 12 inch doily, a book on Afternoon Teas, paper hand towels, a cute box of push pins in tea party shapes, and blue toile teapot and teacup ornaments.  Good luck to all!


  



Now lets have tea!

I've been real busy this week and have time for just a quick pot of tea to share with you.  I'm having tea today at my kitchen island.  I'm using these brown transferware dishes I recently found.  I was excited to find a matching trio!  The name is Sunday Morning by W.H. Grindley. Its good to see the people heading to church in the quaint village.

        








The teapot is filled with Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea.  My Acorn garden fairy came by to join us!






As long as we are in my kitchen I thought I'd show you the sink skirt I made a few months ago.  The cabinet doors snap off real easy for a quick different look.



The picture plate on the window shelf is of my two children years ago.  My sister made the sweet sampler for me when we built our cabin.





Thank you for coming by and don't forget to leave a comment if you would like to enter my giveaway.  Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

I'll be joining the following parties:   Teatime Tuesday, Tabletop Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Show and Tell Friday.

I enjoyed my visit with you today. Transferware offers so many wonderful choices. And Sunday morning is a really great one. I don't think I had seen this one before. Your little acorn fairy is so cute! Thanks for inviting him to the party.

Dearest Nancy ..

Your lovely kitchen filled my heart such warmth ... I love that little skirt and actually was thinking of doing the same in my little butlers kitchen... Too Sweet!!

I always enjoy sipping tea with the fairies especially when they're as cute as your little " acorn " is( Hee hee) .. He made me smile...The theme and tone of your brown transfer ware is the perfect touch for this Thanksgiving season. Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving, my friend... Hugs

Hi Nancy! This is a lovely trio - I LOVE cottage/village motifs and for some reason they are so inviting on china and teacups. I feel drawn into the idealistic world they illustrate. Johnson Brothers has a few patterns like this. Perfect for cabin life - and love the country sink with the skirting! So inviting!! Bless you this Thanksgiving and many thanks for your sweet comments about my daughter's wedding. Yes - still floating . . .
Joy!
Kathy

Dear Nancy,
Thank you for the generous give away and congratulations on your blog anniversary. I would be delighted to be entered.
I love your transfer ware. It is a pattern I am unfamiliar with. Very sweet.

Congrats on your anniversary! Your kitchen is lovely and so is the view!

The teapot & the teacup look like they were made for each other, isn't Christmas just like that? Things / people not ordinarily brought together come together and discover they work well and enjoy each other no matter the difference.

Lovely teapot / teacup. I especially like your hand work, what a precious gift to receive.
