Pink Saturday Christmas Teapot Give Away!

I am approaching 400 blog posts, and my second year blog anniversary, so I thought it would be fun to have a give away of something that would be useful for the Christmas holiday!

It is a brand new, full size, Lenox china "Holiday Gatherings" teapot!

Detail of the lid

The pretty holly design is on both sides of the teapot.


It is also microwave and dishwasher safe!

I'll also include a box of Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice Holiday Herb Tea and a few other little surprises to the lucky winner!

I will write everyone's comment number on a slip of paper and have my husband pick it out of the teapot, on Tuesday, the first of December , so that the winner will receive the teapot in plenty of time to use it for the Christmas season.

To enter for a chance to win, please leave a comment on this blog post.

To receive a second entry for the give away please become a "follower" of my blog, and let me know that you have done that in your comment -- if you already follow my blog I will give you two entries.

If you blog about my give away on your blog you will be entered three times. Please let me know when you have done a blog post about it.

If you do not have a blog please leave an e-mail address in your comment with which I can reach you in case you win.

Good Luck!

Thank you for your friendship and interest in my blog. I love sharing my little corner of the world with you, and I love to read your comments and visit your lovely blogs in return.

It's Pink Saturday today on our wonderful host Beverly's blog "How Sweet The Sound," and as my contribution I'd like to show you how my once blue hydrangea flowers have changed to a beautiful dark shade of pink this autumn! This was the first time they changed to this color so late in the season.

Please visit Beverly's blog today to see links of other participating blogs showing off their lovely "pinks" today, and thank you for entering my Christmas give away!

Hi Pat....what a pretty teapot..I love the plaid on the lid...I am a plaid kinda person..I am already a follower and I'm doing a post tomorrow on Melky Cabrera so I will mention your giveway at the bottom of the post since I have already written it so I'll be able to add it to the end.....make sure to stop by and see what I have to say about my favorite Yankee....

Lorrie said...

Hi Pat, things have finally settled here for a few moments and I'm able to come visit. I've missed your blog and have some catching up to do.

The teapot is just lovely--I am a bigtime tea drinker and I have a small collection of teapots including a couple my sister sent me from England when she lived there years ago. I would love to win it, and I have been a happy follower of your blog for a while!

We have lots of hydrangeas in our yard here in NC--they are among my favorites, perhaps because I remember them from my yard in Rockville Center growing up.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Pat,
Happy Pink Saturday sweetie.
I so love this teapot. It is just as cute as it can be, and so festive for the holiday. I love it. Thank you for sharing with me, and giving me the opportunity to win it. I am already a follower, I so love your posts.

I will be copying one of the pictures and going to my blog and posting about it also. Thanks for sharing sweetie.

Please stop by and say hi. I so love the company. Country hugs...Sherry

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, Pat, what an absolutely adorable teapot! I adore Lenox and would love to be entered in your giveway. The tea looks wonderful, too.

I have followed your blog since I first discovered it, and I have enjoyed all your posts.

Love to you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Joanne Kennedy said...

Hi Pat,

Congrats on your 400 posts! That's a lot of wonderful New York info for us and I for one have enjoyed every word of it.

What a beautiful tea pot. I have a Christmas tea party every year so this would be a wonderful addition to my table. I can't tell you how excited I would be to have a New York memory on my Christmas table every year.

So please do add my name to the hat.

I'm also a follower so put me down again.

Since I really want this I had to think if blogging about it would only make my chances of winning lower or not.

But, I thought I would take the high road and be a big girl and do a post for you. Not only to tell the world about your wonderful blog but also to give everyone a fair chance at winning.

I may regrete this later. LOL

Hope you are staying warm in NY.

Hugs from CA,
Joanne

Good morning Pat. The pink of your hydrangea is beautiful. LOve it. I will not participate in your beautiful give away because I am in Europe and postage will terribly expensive. Little things in an envelope are ok but boxes with beautiful teapots, like yours will be too expensive.But I congratulate you on your 400th post.And I will surely keep following you.

Melanie said...

Hia Pat of course I follow your blog hun. You are in my "blogs I stalk" so I hopefully don't miss one of your interesting posts.

I do like hydrangeas- they are blue because of the soil in the Lakes but in Oxfordshire they are pink.

Congrats on 400 posts what a lovely idea for a giveaway.

mbkatc230 said...

Hi Pat, this is a beautiful teapot. I would love to be entered and I'm already a follower. Love the shot of your hydrangeas. I had no idea that they changed color that dramatically. Do they all do that, or is it based on the type or where you live? Very interesting. Have a wonderful weekend. Kathy

Beverly said...

Congratulations on the success of your blog. It is all of us who are blessed by knowing you.

Now you know I am definitely a follower of you. I am a member of Pat's Fan Club. And, I did list the giveaway in the Pink Saturday post today.

Greetings from Norway!! I'm on a roll findng new blogs tonight and stumbled upon yours...yes, the free giveaway announced on another blog certainly enticed me without hesitation to your blog but I was very glad to have found you...your cats are great- Bo looks like our cat Stuart Little!! And your dog is adorable..small but adorable..I guess in New York having gigantic dogs like mine would be difficult..I'm fascinated by New York, never been there and think I'd be terrified to be there because it's so big, but at the same time I'm fascinated...I'll be back again!! And I've joined your followers ;-)) 2 chances to Norway!! ;-))

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh what a stunning teapot....I LOVE it....Please throw me into the hat too...I'm thinking it would be the sweetest tradition to have tea on Christmas in memory of my Mum....it's the thing I miss the most about not having her here....She always put on the pot as we walked in the door.

Warm blessings,
Spencer

free indeed said...

My 20 yr old daughter asked me for a teapot for Christmas this year. She has been influenced by the 'Pride and Prejudice' movies; elegance in an era gone by that she wants to live. She is so NOT the teapot type, but I love that she wants one. Would love to win this for her.

Hi Pat,
How are you doing? Are you ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday? I haven't even started my shopping and it's two days away...yikes!!

Hydrangea's are my favorite flower in the world! Did you say yours goes from blue to pink? I know that the soil can effect the color, but I didn't know they would change seasonally like that.
I hope you all have a wondeful Thanksgiving!

Love, Cori

I'm new to your blog, came over through a link on another blog, and have so enjoyed my visit. I live in Oregon, but my brother is in Manhattan so it's alot of fun to see parts of the city through another's eyes.
I would love to be entered into your giveaway. That teapot is gorgeous!
Have a wonderful day. I'm off to read more of your posts!

I hate to do it, but I'll have to ask you to deduct one of my entries...I no longer "follow" blogs, but I did comment and post...it is so lovely....and hopefully now that I've got some things off my chest at my place, I can settle down in one spot and finally reach 400 posts some day...LOL!

Bellen said...

HI! Just found the Pink Saturdays and then your blog. The pot is beautiful and since I've started taking a 'sit down and enjoy' tea break in the afternoon it would be great.

I've added your blog to my bookmarks under the folder "Tea & Tablescapes".

Miss Jean said...

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Congratulations on your 400+posts. The teapot is just beautiful and would make a great addition to my collection.

Linda Lou said...

Hi Pat, this is a lovely teapot, and I can picture it on my buffet in the dining room!! Do you know you were the first person to ever comment on my blog - so good look on your 400th post!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Hi! Kathleen sent me! I love the teapot and I'm anxious to read more of your blog posts. Congrats on reaching 400! Wow!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I'll follow you anywhere. :-)

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving!! I spent the weekend cleaning closets, overhauling piles and throwing out bills from like 10 years ago. Good times! :-) But I feel almost ready to take on the week. Almost.

Lisa will be sad you missed her Daring Bakers challenge. :-) Those shells were a pain in the you-know-what. As someone commented on my post, I work in NYC...no need to ever make my own cannolis, lol! When I have a full day I hope to master the shells. One of these days...

Sue said...

Hi Pat, I thought I entered your give-away, but I might have been in a daze.... Anyhow, I posted a link to your site and I follow, as you know! Congrats on the 400th!! I always enjoy learning from you.
hugs, Sue
