A Giveaway

Good morning dear friends.

I have a few things I want to give away in honor of my 300th post, to say thank you to all of you. When I began this blog a year and a half ago, I had no idea the impact you would make on my life. You have cheered me and encouraged me with your many kind words. You have inspired me by your courage. You have stimulated me with all your creative ideas. But most of all you have blessed me with your friendship and for that I am very grateful.

I love it when we can sit down over a cup of tea, so I want to give you a few tea related things: a mug with teapots and teacups on it.

Four teapot napkin rings
Some blueberry tea.
And a book to enjoy while you sip your tea.
Leave a comment on THIS POST and I will announce the winner on June 1 at my porch party. If you'd like to join the party just click on the photo on my sidebar for more information.
Thank you for being so sweet and supportive and caring. Thank you for inviting me into your homes and for spending time with me at my home. You are the best!!
Hugs, Rhondi

  36. 300th post in 1 1/2 year? That's a lot! You have shared lots of wonderful things - 300 posts in total! Congratulations!

    Oh I'm sure Reflections of a Thankful Heart will be a beautiful read. A nice inspirational book it must be. Also, those teapot rings and teapot and cups designs in the mug is just adorable! 'Tis the first time I encounter a blueberry tea. HHhhhmmmm must have a really nice taste (considering it's from a fruit).

  44. Rhondi, I have enjoyed so many of your posts since I started blogging six months ago. I think I "met" you when I joined Thankful Thursday. You have so many posts to celebrate. I think you deserve a give~away gift. The teapot napkin holders are so very unique!! And I have never tried blueberry tea, but it looks great!!

    I am so sorry that I can't join the porch party. I am so behind on all of my gardening. As you know, most times we don't really warm up in the Midwest until close to mid~May and because of all the rain, it has been very difficult to squeeze in any gardening for me. But I SO look forward to seeing what everyone will have!!!!

    Have a wonderful week, Rhondi!

    xoxo

Rhondi - I have just been brought here to your beautiful blog and was moping because I simply do not have time to perk up the porch for a party - although my fourth of July plans are in the works. While moping I had a look around and enjoyed what I saw and read very much - such a lovely blog! Congratulations on 300 posts! Good for you! Kelly
