Sometimes I wonder what's left to write about, but something always surfaces. Having my own blog has given me the deepest gratitude and respect for bloggers who have been blogging for years.  Only a blogger knows the level of commitment and time required, and the gratification it provides.

A heartfelt thanks to all my followers and readers.

So here's my 600th post giveaway - a hard-cover, spiral bound cookbook with a year of theme teas and recipes to go with the themes, and a pair of Avon gold tone teacup pierced earrings. 

The giveaway is open to all my blog followers and faithful readers residing in the U.S. and Canada. Simply leave a comment between today and Sunday that you would like to participate in the giveaway, and I'll announce the winner on Monday morning, June 2nd. Good Luck!
