Teacup giveaway 2016

My blogiversary was a couple of weeks ago on January 26--2 years!  I have a hard time believing it has been so long (and I know I'm nothing compared to many of the tea bloggers out there).  To celebrate that and Valentine's Day (and my birthday, which is also this week), I am doing a teacup giveaway.

I found this teacup and thought it would be perfect for this giveaway with its pretty blue hydrangeas.  There is some debate on what the "official" meaning of the hydrangea flower is, but, since it is one of my favorite flowers (bushes?), I like that it can mean heartfelt emotions, including gratitude.  So this is the perfect teacup to thank all my readers that keep coming back!

The teacup has a smaller hydrangea on the back and comes with this small goldware teaspoon. 

This set is by Truly Tasteful fine china, and is made in China.

If you would like to enter, please leave a comment below with a way for me to contact you if you win by February 13.  I will draw a name and post it on Valentine's Day.  Good luck!  (Oh, and please only continental U.S. and Canadian residents, sorry!).


  1. Happy Bloggavery and a truly happy happy birthday to you, Carrie!

    I wish you all the best!

    Your teacup is gorgeous and anyone would be so lucky to win that pretty and unique tea cup!

    Be sure to share this over at Rose Chintz Cottage for No Place Like Home linky party, and over at Martha's Favorites for Teacup Tuesday and at Bernideen's for BTTCG linky and at at Antiques and Teacups for Tuesday Cuppa Tea - all three of these linky parties are a good place for anything related to tea!!!!

    Have a wonderful week full of love! ♥♥♥

    The teacup is really pretty and I think it would look great with my blue & white dishes.

  6. Hi Carrie,
    What a beautiful teacup giveaway to celebrate two years of blogging! Happy Upcoming Birthday to you, and Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. Lots to celebrate here. Happy Birthday Carrie, and Congratulations on two years of blogging! It is lovely to meet another tea blogger. Your teacup is adorable and the wee spoon is very sweet. I love hydrangeas too. Thank you for the Giveaway and Happy Valentine's Day!


  8. Happy Birthday and Valentine Week, Carrie! Congratulations on your blogiversary! Hopefully, the twos won't be too terrible for Teatime Journeys. Hee!

    I actually don't mind pu-erhs (I'll take them over smokey teas like lapsang souchong or extremely floral teas), but I still prefer to take home the flavoured black, green or white teas with me.

    Last weekend, I was at David's Tea and couldn't resist getting a sample of "The Earl's Valentine"--a limited edition Earl Grey blend with chocolate and rosebuds. I'm such a sucker for seasonal teas! Anyway, I'm back on the tea wagon again!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win the pretty hydrangeas teacup!

  9. The teacup is really pretty, but sad to say I have no luck with any type of raffling. But still it excite me, hoping to win.


Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
