Good afternoon world of the Internet.
You may have noticed a few little changes to our little site recently. For one, the tea (gin...ahem) drinking ladies are out in style, doing their squiffy tea drinking in the summer long-gone sun.
We have a little space for any of you lovely lot that would like to sponsor us at very reasonable rates (contact us if you'd like more info) and also, we've been given this!
Many thanks to Sam from Sam's Notebook for giving us this award!
Upon receiving this award we had better follow the rules... which are:
1: Thank and link back to the person who gave the award to you. Check!
2: Share seven things about yourself. Check! (below)
3: Send it along to five other bloggers and let them know you have awarded them. Check!(below)
Righto, tea chums...seven things about us...hmmm this may be a little difficult without stating the very obvious...
1: We love to watch the good old black and whites, (especially those with James Stewart in) and could merrily sit and watch Mary Poppins, Singin' in the Rain and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on repeat.
2: Favourite EVER cake = Hot chocolate fudge cake with either cream, custard OR icecream. (Goes down nicely with pretty much any tea too!)
3: We believe the little things mean an awful lot and we should never take anything for granted.
4: Wonders how time flies so quickly and why we (more often that not) never complete a day's list of things to do.
5: Can often be found with noses in books. (Isle of Tea Towers should be transformed into a library! *Note to Mrs IOT - get the blummin' Tea Reads Page sorted soon!*
6: We do actually like coffee too...
7: Slippers are a must! Cosy, warm, comforting and fairly decadent. Almost like a cup of tea for your feet.
8: Wonders what a widget is... isn't that something that comes in a drink? (Yes... there should have been seven... but we're ever so slightly naughty...)
That's that then! Very nice to have been given an award. Now, here's to some of our favourite blogs we shall give the award to.
1: It's got to be said at place No.1 it has to be Kat Got The Cream as she has been our most faithful and brilliant guest poster of all our Tea loving days (and we have a fab What do you wear from Kat coming up next too!) and she's a very good versatile blogger indeed!
2: Vicky from The Owl and The Accordion for her interesting, bright and colourful reads who needs a HUGE congratulations for the recent news of cooking a little bun in't' oven!
3: Kirsty from Dottynoggin because we just love her work and we could easily sit, cuppa after cuppa just admiring it all.
4: Floral & Purl for sharing with us all the sweetest, most lovely things in life and appreciating all those little things. Mustn't forget the wonderful photos!
5: Handmade by Emily Oh and how we love Emily's crafty makes and inspirations.
Phewph...all these inspiring hours of blog surfing are pretty tiring. Time for a cuppa with Arsenic and Old Lace.
