~WHAT TIME IS IT~IT TIME TO CELEBRATE~

What time is it girls !! Isn't this egg just the sweetest thing....I bet it knows what Time it is....Let's open it up...

Why it's a little clock that have been just ticking away waiting for today....What time does it say?? Why it's says it's Gloria's 1 year Anniversary in Bloggerville !!! Wonder where I should put it ???


Maybe I'll sit it on this table runner..... Don't you love what this says....


After doing that I need some refreshments ...how about joining me with a Chocolate Biscotti with almonds and a hot cup of Cinnamon and spice tea.... doesn't that sound Yummy....

Oh maybe I'll put this little silver tray on the table runner....But it looks so naked.... Let's see what I can add to it...

Maybe I'll add some fancy sugar cube for your tea...


Those sugar cubes are so Dainty maybe I should get out the silver sugar tongs and add those...

I know I'll put them in a sweet little sugar bowl that's much better... 1 lump or 2 ?

Would you care for some cream ???

The tea all brewed now just for you....

Yes I like it on the little tray much better...

Now we need something to put this hot tea in ...Oh how about these little silver porcelain tea cups....

Thanks!! But I need a spoon to stir Please....

Much better...

Oh my!! what a mess you are I have 2 battenberg lace napkin's to wipe all those little crumbs off your sweet face....

I really should have put them in these pretty tea pot napkin rings...but I'll let you do that after all it's your tea party....

Please light this sweet smelling Pear pie candle....it's not to eat remember you just had a Biscotti...

I'll plug in the Tea pot night lite while you do that...

Don't you love a good book while your sipping on your tea....Do you want Phyllis Hoffman " Gracious Spaces" to read??

It's beautiful inside and I know you'll enjoy the pictures.... (note to self...find that Blue willow soup tureen)
Or maybe you would rather have Victoria's " The Essential Tea Companion"

I bet you could find some wonderful recipes for your next tea party in here....

Or Maybe you just like to read the" Tea Time " Magazine and see how to set a pretty Christmas Tea table...Or how to make some YUMMY Christmas food...Or look at China...(more dishes girls) ha ha!!

Or maybe you just like to admire this sweet silver tea spoon made into a hook.... That you could hang a Tea towel or Tea apron from....

Or you would just like to sip your tea and think about your Christmas Tree and how cute these little tea cup and pot ornaments would look on your tree to remember our Tea Time today....

Or you could make out your Tea Time wish list and send out a little card's to invite someone over for Tea...You have a shopping list tablet and some gift tags.... you can put all your notes in the file folders....

Oh I'm so glad you enjoyed the Tea Time Magazine...I'll order it for the year for you....

Thank you, all for making a Great year for me in Bloggerville....It's has been so special for me to come into your homes and meet with you each day, to laugh with you, pray with you, to cry with you, and to see all your inspiring decorating and your love of your family and our Country....Even if it is in cyber world...where else I could wear my Old RED robe and not comb my hair have a weeks growth of hair on my upper lip (come on you older ladies know what I mean) and you still like me...

Now the only rules on this give away is you have to be a follower or become a follower and leave me a comment so I can toss your name in my Tea Hat...that's it... (1 other private rule... Dawna, employee family our not eligible= buy your own dang tea pot )

I will announce the winner on Monday October 26, 2009...I will then pack up everything you see on that table and send it your way....GOOD LUCK....

Thank you for coming by and seeing me on my mountain top....I always enjoy the company....Like Tom Cruise said in " Jerry Maguire " You complete Me !!!

Hugs and Smiles, Gl♥ria

ps: to 9405018- Pat....you always come by and leave the sweetest comments to me...But you don't have a blog...So I want to say THANK YOU....Toss your name in the Hat

I follow your blog, though I do so, anonymously. Your giveaway is beyond comparison, just as you are.

I sure hope Miss Janice comments so that her name is thrown into your hat. All of her posts for January were in celebration of National Hot Tea Month.

Congratulations on this day, as I look forward to many more funny, educational, and inspirational posts from you.

Oops I forgot to tell you how wonderful the giveaway is!! Girl you have outdone yourself! I am thinking about doing a giveaway when I get closer to 200 followers (since I totally forgot about my 1 year or 100 posts, or 100 followers chance to do a giveaway) and it looks like I better start setting aside pretties now if I am to have a giveaway any way close to yours!
