200th Blog Post Giveaway

On June 14, 2012 I sponsored a 100th blog post giveaway in celebration of my blog's first milestone.
The days and weeks have quickly passed, and today is my 200th post. Once again I'm sponsoring a giveaway in honor of this second milestone.
I've had fun going through the stats to see which posts were the most read.   Number one is  The Grand Hotel [on Mackinac Island, MI]  written on 4/19/2012.   To date 748 people have read that post.    The second most read post is Last Dinner on the Titanic written on 4/3/2012 with 525 reads.
The post that received the most comments was the Anne of Green Gables Tea written on 9/17/2012.  17 people left comments.  This blog is my creative writing outlet about the beverage I'm passionate about, and my experiences surrounding it.  Special thanks to all my readers and followers, and to you who've taken the time to leave messages over the past ten months.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.
The giveaway will consist of  Sandy Lynam Clough's book, The Art of Tea and Friendship, published by Harvest House.
The book is filled with quotes, poems, tea party ideas, and, of course, Sandy's beautiful tea illustrations. 
Also a gift box of six porcelain teaspoons.
And a ceramic Tea Bag Caddy.
To enter, leave a comment between now and next Thursday, November 15th.   Participants must be a blog follower.   Regrettably,  due to high postal rates and insurance in other countries, those who enter must be U.S. residents.   I will be having a giveaway on my blog's 1 Year Anniversary [January 24, 2013], and that giveaway will be open to everyone worldwide.    Thanks again for your support, and "Good Luck!"
