Tea, Cookies and a Give-a-way



A dear friend gave me a Marshall's Gift Card for Christmas.
It has been burning a hole in my wallet for months.
I finally made my way to Marshall's to see what goodies I could find.


What do you think? 
Fun!

And, I had $$ left on the gift card!


Tea and Cookies


The only marks on the bottom of the mugs and plates are:
Food and Microwave Safe.
I'm very pleased with my Marshall's find.
The mugs are very large -- perfect for the first tea of the day.

The cookies are Carr's Ginger Lemon English Tea Cookies.
Delicious with Honey Lemon Ginseng Green Tea!


Tea and Cookies




***

It's nearing that time of year again.
My birthday is at the end of the month and my blog-birthday is in early June.
So, it's time for a give-a-way and I'm calling this one my Summer Curiosities Give-a-way.

I'm going to pick one name on May 29 during my birthday week
and another name on June 5 the week of Twisty's birthday.

The winners will split the curiosities you see in the photo.
As you can see, Cassie has given her seal of approval to all the items.
I'm sure there will be a few extra goodies thrown in.

The rules:
Leave a comment on this post.
That's all you need to do.

If you are a winner, it would be nice if you were a follower, too! 



Curiosities




Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

Hi Snap
It never fails to amaze me that I think I'm following certain blogs, and it turns out I'm not. I guess there's more than one way to follow.
Aren't those the cutest plates and mug with the tea things on!
I have been meaning to get 'Chocolate Chocolate' on my ereader, so to win it in print form would be even better. Lots of goodies in your giveaways.
Any hints if it's a special number BD coming up? :-)
