A Giveaway Made For Me

 We live in a white house with blue trim

and you can spot a little blue and white in every room in the house.

So when I read about a giveaway hosted by Juliette @englishwife

Karina @corishwareartist and 

@cornishware, I knew I had to enter.

I was so excited when Juliette notified me that I was the winner and in shock when the package arrived from Somerset, England in just a few days.

I'm a sucker for packaging - the blue and white striped boxes each held a sweet mug and the message from Juliette was lovely.

I am so happy that Cornishware UK offered the giveaway world wide.

I had no idea that they had anything except blue and white - the yellow is so fun!

In addition to the 2 mugs, the package included a lovely teapot and the cutest little pitcher.

Of course the gift had to include tea and I love the cute message on the box.

I had to style the entry in blue and white - my old classroom stool came down from the attic for spring.

I love that I once again have a bit of Cornishware - I had one little bowl brought to me by friends who live in Penzance, Cornwall, but sadly I broke it.

Yes, this giveaway was made for me.

I'm sitting at the dining room table writing this post (wearing a blue and white striped sweater), the muffin and grapes are long gone, but my cup is full today!

  8. Carol, you are one lucky duck! I entered the giveaway, too. Trip's family is from Cornwall, and I love Cornishware although I don't collect it. You are the perfect winner, honestly! Also, we drink PG Tips every single morning. The Brits call it a "builders' tea" because it's so strong. I'm actually drinking it now!

  15. Carol, what a wonderful win for you and your sweet cottage. That teapot is just plain adorable..Happy Weekend..Judy

  16. What a beautiful addition and what a perfect gift! Maybe they can ship to Greece duty free (a very real snag in ordering things in this country is having the government tax both the purchase and the postage and often paying double the value of the contents to receive it. . .especially when sent from the U.S.)

  17. Hi Carol!
    Congratulations! It is so much fun to be the winner! I have had so many compliments on my canvas picture. I am telling everyone about that great website!
    Have a wonderful day!
