Nifty Stuff

Hey there shiny happy people....

There's this cool little giveaway thing going on at Ms. Bella's blog. She's giving away a $55 gift card code to the CSN Network site. There is a plethora of goodies on this website. I found some really nifty stuff for myself. I tell you...this website went into my favorite's list. I'm going to be moving into a house by the end of this coming summer so this will be an awesome site for me to visit when I set up the new place :)

Go here....http://bellafoxglove.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-first-giveaway.html to read about the giveaway and enter for yourself.

Good luck my lovelies!!

I am Alive...

Barely anyways. Just wanted to let my wonderful readers know that I haven't fallen off the edge of the blog-o-sphere. I've been consumed by NaNoWriMo.....and it's kicken my butt.

I'm about 13000 words behind schedule and am determined to catch up soon. Will try to keep you guys posted on how things are going but I make no promises just in case. Tea Time Tuesday will resume in December and I'm thinking about doing some other things so that I can post a bit more often than I do.

Hope you are all doing well!! Much love and tea cozies :)

A Heartfelt Thank You

So...last week (or so) admist all the holiday whos-its-whats-its...I was given two blog awards. I have to admit that I almost fell out of my chair when I saw them. It put me into a state of shock to the point where I had the insane desire to call either my mom or my best friend at 2am, just to let someone know that somebody out there likes what I have to say.

I am so thankful that there are even people out there who do read my blog. I started this as just a place to share stuff.....my love of tea, my crazy life that I absolutely love, and little snippets of things that make me happy. I know that I don't post on a regular basis (I'm the queen of procrastination over here...I should be working on my novel...not playing on my blog) and I know that sometimes there are posts that make even me go Huh? I swear my fingers take over sometimes and don't let the brain have a say at all.

So thank you....all 27 of you who follow me and all of you who just stop by to see what this little corner of cyberspace is all about. You are all awesome....just sayin.

OK...enough sappy talk. Here are the blog awards I recieved. I got the One Lovely Blog award from Rue @ Rue and Hyssop. The Clucking Great Blog Award from Kally @ Kally's Cauldron. You two ladies are so sweet. As far as the rules for passing on blog awards....well, since I'm new to this and have only recently started habitually following people and such....here's how it's going to go.

To all my followers...all 27 of you...Congrats! You all get these rewards too. Cause that's how I roll :) Thanks again for passing these to me. You are both too kind.

On a side note....I'm still learning all the ins and outs of blogging...including the whole link thing. Once I get that figured out I will edit this so that appropriate links are placed to link back to the two ladies who gave me these. If anyone can help me out....please let me know in the comments :) Thanks.

Today's Thing....


to be happy about. Copper tea kettles. In all their shiny, beautiful awesomeness. I pine for a copper tea kettle that I found at Williams-Sonoma. However...until it's about 50% off, I'm not willing to spend half my rent on it. LOL. And if you haven't guessed by now...I'm using this as my make up Tea Time Tuesday post. I was in a super bad mood last nite and figured it was safer to stay off the net.

What are your favorite kettle types? Copper, Stainless steel, cast iron, the microwave? *Admit it...we've all done it at least once* Tell me, tell me.....
