Pink Saturday/ A Pink Prize!

My last post was my 100th post. As I am unable to do a giveaway right now, I borrowed an idea from a blogging friend, and have decided that you can ask me any question you would like, which I will answer in a later post. Can't think of anything? Oh come on, what wouldn't you want to ask a single, divorced mom of three who is about to turn 50 and has a busy career? lol

Welcome to the latest edition of Pink Saturday! I recently won yet another giveaway! This was hosted by Sherry at Edie Marie's Attic who decided to give away 7 beautiful teacups with saucers! This was a contest that I really wanted to win! I was really hoping to win a teacup that was both pink and floral...and I did!

I received my package on Wednesday. I am like a little kid on Christmas morning, and I couldn't wait to open the package! There on top was the sweetest card. Isn't it pretty in pink and brown?

Ooooo, on to the pretty teacup and saucer!

Here is a look from above so you can see the beautiful pattern.

There was more in the package though!

Sherry also included some teabags in several delicious flavors, and a snack!

In keeping with the pink theme, here is a teabag with pink letters. I guess I will find out soon if it makes pink tea!

Of course, you need a teaspoon to stir with, and perhaps even a butter knife for toast and jam with your tea! I love how she tied it up with a pretty ribbon.

So what do you get when you add all this together? Why, a tea party of course!

It's a tea party even if its just me and even if I take tea at my nightstand. I just love all my new gifts!

I know that I've won several giveaways since I joined blogland, but what people don't know is how much they mean to me. My parents are both gone, my brothers and I aren't very tight knit, my friends have limited budgets, and my children have had some employment issues, so it's sad to say that no one ever gives me gifts. Last Christmas I received the first gifts that I'd had in years. I can't remember when I last got a birthday present. I'm not complaining, because I really have all that I need and I get such pleasure from giving to my children, but I really do feel lonely and forgotten on those days. That being said, you can't imagine how wonderful it feels to receive such a lovely gift in the mail, even if its because my name was pulled from a hat!

Thanks again, Sherry! I love it all!

Aren't packages wonderful? Even better when they have such pretty things in them. I haven't read your blog very long, so sorry if you have already talked about this, but my question is "Tell me why the house is the house of your dreams"

bj said...

My question, dear Kady...are you being able to control your diabetes now, so that you are feeling good most of the time?

Oh, and about the Pink Taco....
OMG !! :O)

Justine said...

Ooh, what a pretty prize to have won! You'll have to let us know how the various flavors were!

My question to you:
What type of man are you usually attracted to?

Kady, while reading your last comment to me I was thinking 'hey, a new blogger visited me!'

Love your new pic! I've seen it before on a previous post of yours. but it did not come to me!

Straight hair becomes you!

Now, my question is,
'How did you, as a single mom, manage to grow such lovely sons?'
