Once again, I'm very grateful to my thoughtful family and friends for spoiling me with tea-related gifts on Christmas.

I adore the purple teacup on this Peter Pan quote:
"Would you like an adventure now, or shall we have tea first?

Tea first!
New herbal, black and green teas to sip before embarking on an adventure.

This adorable infuser is a marriage of my favourite things: tea, purple and polka dots!

Good thing that I meet the minimum age requirements for this sweet miniature ladybug tea set!

How cute are these handmade coasters?

A tea nerd can never have too many tea-themed towels...

...or tea-themed cards!

 Socks to be me!

Green Tea bath and body products.

This "Teacups" puzzle will be a fun indoors activity during winter.

My generous family and friends also gifted me beautiful teawares which will be shared in future posts. Since I now have more than enough teas and teawares, I've gone on a "tea diet". We'll see how long I stay on the tea wagon! 

Now it's time to announce the winner of my 2-year blogiversary giveaway!

And the Winner selected by is...(drum roll):

Sylvia from SMD Paper Arts.

(How cool was it that the random number that was generated was my birthday?!?)

 Congratulations, Sylvia!!! 
Please send me your mailing address and tea preferences (e.g., black, green, herbal, etc.) and I will ship your prizes you.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway!

I'm joining the following parties this week:


  1. Your family and friends know you so well, Margie, and I'm happy that you were spoiled. Good luck with that "tea diet"! Have a great week. xo

  2. Oops...I forgot to say...congratulations to Sylvia on winning your giveaway!

  3. Margie, What a wonderful array of products. Socks with tea on them! I love the tea coaster. I`ve seen those before I wondered if I could actually sew some. Enjoy the puzzle on cold winter evenings. Sylvia D.

  4. Beautiful gifts, I love the little tea infuser, so cute xx

  5. Congrats to Sylvia! Margie, your family and friends know you so well. Everything is lovely and won't it be fun to put together that pretty puzzle? Good luck with the "tea diet" because I know first hand, it's not easy! Have a great week, my tea-lovin' friend.

    Winter blessings,

  6. That's an adorable little ladybug teaset. We bought our daughter the same puzzle last year, she is a tea lover too. Hm-m-m a tea diet - is that when you drink only tea?

  7. So many fun things were received by you this Christmas! The purple dotted infuser and lady bug tea set are so cute! Congratulations to Sylvia!

  8. Hi Margie!

    Oh, my - you have some amazing tea-themed items in your arsenal! Yay!

    You know my granddaughter before she was born was nick-named Baby Bug - and I have been looking for (eventually needing) a Lady Bug tea set. Where did you find that?

    It's going to be nice to have tea parties with her once she's older. Right now she is only 6 months old and still is drooling, haha. One musn't ever drool in one's teacup!

    Hope your new year is going well, my dear friend. Hugs!

  9. Wow, you were spoiled but I know you deserve it. Enjoy all your pretty gifts.

  10. Oh Margie, a "tea diet!" You make me smile :) I'm not sure if I could handle a tea diet so I wish you lots of "luck," my friend.

    Your gifts are simply lovely and your them!

    Congratulations to the lovely Sylvia. Hugs to yu!

  11. Spoiled perhaps but a deserving tea lover to receive these gifts. The ladybug tea set is too cute!
    Congrats to Sylvia, I know she's a tea drinker.

  12. Hi Margie, you certainly got some wonderful tea related presents for Christmas!
    I love the card with the Peter Pan quote!
    Well, you obviously have been very encouraged by your friends and family to dive into your tea passion even more, which is quite wonderful!
    Enjoy your lovely presents!
    Warm regards,

  13. Congratulations to Sylvia #19. I was #20. Does that mean I came in second place? Do I win anything? Or do I have to go to Sylvia's house to join her for tea?
    Just joking.

  14. Margie, your family and friends know you so well, I'm happy that you were spoiled with such array of gifts.

  15. Well they obviously know you well! What teatime treasures! And congratulations for Sylvia! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  16. Lovely gifts! Who is the maker/producer of those blue and white notecards? I love them!

  17. Hi Margie,
    You really were spoiled this Christmas. How lovely to get so many of your favourite things. I love the ladybug tea set. My grand daughter would love it too. We always have a tea party when we are together and she's not even two yet. Lol. Have a Wonderful Weekend! Karen

  18. That puzzle is perfect for this cold winter! I love all your treasures and am a sock person so those caught my eye too! Thanks for sharing all your fun gifts!

  19. Margie, isn't it fun being a tea nerd! My husband calls us "tea bags" (but in the nicest way!). Love that puzzle!
