A BROWN PAPER PACKAGE GIVEAWAY
~ lyrics from Favorite Things by Rodgers and Hammerstein ~
Hello everyone! The other day I received a package in the mail wrapped in brown paper. I think I was more excited about the packaging, than the actual contents; our favorite sage cheddar from Vermont. Anyways, I wanted to share the fun of receiving a brown paper package (though it won't be tied up with string. I'll be suffering the wrath of the Postmistress enough with the brown paper!), so I decided to have a giveaway of some of my favorite things. Sorry, I can't offer you a car like Oprah, but my giveaway is easier to get tickets to attend. Just leave your name in the comments and next Sunday I'll draw a name. So what's in the drawing? A vintage English Brown Betty teapot made by Alcock, Lindley and Bloore. I've been collecting these adorable little teapots for decades. What is a teapot without tea, right? So a tin of Harney and Sons tea, which is about the only tea I can tolerate. A pretty Royal Albert teacup and saucer (vintage of course) in the Winsome pattern. Don't you just love the name? I need to use the word "winsome" more often. Stillmeadow Road by Gladys Taber, one of my favorite authors. Who doesn't love Gladys? A vintage Christmas apron, all freshly laundered and starched, so you won't splash any tea on your clothes when pouring the tea. And a pretty sparkly vintage Christmas pin. Perhaps you can spy it on the apron? Madame the Bust is being very uncooperative in modeling the apron today. Plus a few other little trifles that I'll let be a surprise. So enter your name, tell your friends, the more the merrier!
