Julie's Little House Give Away

Two weeks ago I won a giveaway over at Julie's Little House.  Julie has a fun blog where she shares her passions for cooking, knitting, gardening and fixing up old furniture.  She also has another blog, Dinner at Julie's that you are going to want to visit.  She puts together some yummy looking meals with great photos.  I may just have to make a trip to Ontario with my fork and spoon and knock on her door in time for dinner!

Anyway, this is what I won...

The raspberry & cream shortbread cookies are really good.  I love raspberry anything and these are fantastic!

I was anxious to try the Lady Grey tea.  Practically all I drink is tea - iced tea, hot tea, tea that's been sitting on my stove for 2 days.  However, I usually only drink plain, Lipton tea, not flavored with anything.  I tend to shy away from flavored teas.  The Lady Grey is a delicate blend of black tea with bergamot, lemon peel and orange peel.  I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.  Looks like I'll be switching up my tea assortment a little.

I haven't decided what I'm going to use the pretty cup and saucer for yet.  I'm open to suggestions.

The final, and my personal favorite, was the silver tray.  It's the perfect size to sit on my dresser and display my shell jewelry pieces.   Some of you probably recognize the jewelry because it's all hand made by my good friend Della, over at Del's Shells.  Isn't the tray perfect for holding my jewelry?

Thank you Julie for a fun give away!  Be sure to stop by and say hi to her at Julie's Little House.


  1. Congrats on the giveaway!!! I'm a tea-aholic myself, and drink it all day long. Let me know how the flavored teas are. The raspberry cookies will probably be great with the tea! The cup and saucer are soooo pretty! I think the silver tray is perfect for holding your seashell jewelry, too.

  2. Lovely prize! I enjoy a cup of Lady Grey now and again, but prefer my usual Earl Grey. I stay AWAY from the regular Lipton, can't stand it! :p
    Those cookies do sound yummy!

  3. Oh what a wonderful package filled with goodies. The tea cup is gorgeous and I love the pretty tray for your jewelry. I have my Del's Shells jewelry out on display, too. You can't hide it away! Hugs!

  4. Hey Kim - glad you are enjoying the things. I have a teacup that I keep in my bedroom and put a small beeswax candle in it. It looks nice glowing through the china.

    Of course, I use my teacups for tea drinking too but my sisters only like mugs.

    The tray looks great with your jewllery. I'm redecorating my bedroom this fall and I got myself a silver dish for jewellery too. J


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
