Blog Anniversary Giveaway

"Time flies when you're having fun"
I began blogging on January 16, 2008.
A lot has changed in my life since then.
As result, my blogging habits have changed since the beginning.
Some of the changes are:
Aging (yes, I had to mention that), ok change that to health,
Austin is now a senior in high school,
my family schedule and requirements take me longer to complete,
and three members of our family, Melissa, Austin and I,
must eat gluten free for health reasons.
The GF thing has made going out for afternoon tea more complicated,
but not impossible.
To celebrate this blog anniversary, I am hosting a Giveaway for the
small Teapot Clock shown in the photo above.
If you wish to enter the drawing, please leave your
name, the state/area where you live,
 and a way I can contact you by 8:00 p.m. on Monday, January 16th.
If you are a blogger, you are welcome to leave the name of your blog.
The best reward of blogging has been the friends I have met through the blog,
both in person and online.
Thank you for visiting.
I look forward to your comments! 

Please note:  This giveaway is limited to the USA and Canada

A clock teapot [one of two] just arrived in my mail today as an early b-day present from Jerry. YOou'll be seeing them on my blog soon.
Best Wishes for many more years of blogging!

Congratulations on your blog anniversary. I wish I'd been reading for all nine years but I found your blog several years ago and always enjoy it. I'm in the beautiful North Georgia mountains, where there is (unfortunately) a scarcity of tea rooms. The clock is darling. You can contact me at

Congratulations Linda, it's gratifying to have a place to journal and share knowledge about a topic of passion. I assume your giveaway is only for the US and I know someone who also shares your passion will be thrilled to win the teapot clock.
Since I started blogging in 2008 as well, my blog has evolved and will continue to do so but it's the friends I've met (like yourself) that makes the continuation worth while. I don't always leave a comment but like to keep abreast of what my friends are up to.

Happy Anniversary! It has been a wonderful journey and you always have shared such interesting and helpful things. I love blogging too, but my habits have changed as well. I think mine have altered due to changes in technology --- and then of course there is that aging/health thing. :) My name is LaDonna and I live in Washington. I can be contacted via Facebook --- we are friends. I love the little teapot clock and hope you draw me! ;)

Enjoy a lovely day! I wish I were in Kentucky right now!

Congratulations! I check every day to see if you have a new post. It seems like there are fewer and fewer tea blogs, so I hope that you'll keep on going! I live in the beautiful piney woods of East Texas.
