My tea post today is a repost of last week with a small addition. This morning I’m enjoying a mug of Irish Breakfast tea…strong and black. It’s a busy day and after the night I had I need a real eye-popper. Last week I introduced a Teacup Round Robin. This week I hope you will sign on and help the teacup begin its travels.
Patty’s delightful tea post March 30 featuring the Washington, D. C. cherry blossom bloom gave me a quirky idea. She had the foresight to take a beautiful cup and saucer as a Tea on Tuesday photo prop. Lennie, (no blog, wonderful Lennie) commented “What a fantastical idea, a traveling teacup! Love it!” on Patty’s post. I loved it, too. My quirky mind couldn’t help but think of the title “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” (I never saw the movie or read the book.) Delete “Pants” and insert “Teacup” and an idea was conceived. I’ve heard of Round Robin crochet hooks and Round Robin letters. Why not a round robin teacup or mug? A mug is a bit more durable and would likely be the best choice.
This Round Robin is only open to Tea on Tuesday participants…A participant is one who has posted a Tea on Tuesday post anytime in the past up until today or one who is well known to and recommended by a faithful Tea on Tuesday poster. It works like this. I will select a cup and put together a small package containing the cup and assorted tea samples, a handwritten note, and a small handmade item, and send it to the first person who gets on the list. That person would use the cup no less than once and keep it no longer than two weeks. She would then add tea if she used any from the package, add to the note, and include a small handmade item that relates to herself, and send it to the next person on the list.
When the Round Robin is complete and the cup returns to me I will host a Round Robin Giveaway. The prize will be the cup and all the handmade items added by the participants. The giveaway will be open only to those who participated in the Traveling Teacup Round Robin.
If you are interested in participating be sure to leave a comment asking for your name to be added to the list. You will need to send your mailing information to me. Click on the “Email Me” button on the sidebar to send it privately.
There is still time to enter your name for a chance to win the spring apron giveaway that ends on the 15th.
If you enjoy tea and tea posts be sure to visit Kimmie at Art In Red Wagons (home of Tea on Tuesday) for more delightful tea conversation.
Until next time…
If you are cold, tea will warm you; If you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; If you are excited, it will calm you. ~ Gladstone (1865) Victorian British Prime Minister ~
