Spring Fling~ Irish Tea Party giveaway

If you are visiting via SITS, welcome! The Decor to Adore blog is currently in the midst of a two week series on "All Things Irish".

This blog covers all forms of adored decor such as Irish lead crystal.
Another post was on the care and keeping of beautiful Irish linen.
We also visited some lovely Irish thatched roof cottages.
I also love to go to flea markets and repair found items such as this charming little teapot/cup. It was missing the knob on its lid.

A little lamp finial works quite well. I would paint the finial cream to match the pot. What color would you paint it?



Onto the giveaway which is pictured below:

I regularly host giveaways on Fridays for adorable people (aka "followers").
This weeks giveaway is a wee bit early and open to everyone in celebration of the SITS giveaway extravaganza. Please leave just ONE comment.
If you are a follower of this blog (aka adorable person) please leave me a second comment so that you have two chances to win the teapot, tea, Irish cream cocoa, a bag of chocolate, small vintage treasures, fairy dust, soap, a necklace and my own personal scone recipe.

UPDATE! The random number generator gave the luck of the Irish to Joanne from My Little Cottage in the Making. How appropriate, as this lady is indeed an Irish lass.
Thank you for visiting and be blessed!

The blue door on this Irish cottage is awesome and such a nice welcoming color.
We're making plans to visit Ireland, summer of 2010. A group of us will be renting a cottage. We still haven't decided a location. Any suggestions?
We will also be staying a week in Pembrokshire, Wales.
Have a wonderful day!

I am enjoying your Irish blogging! The Tea for One Set is a neat treasure you found! "Cupan Tae" Cup of Tea in the sweet tea variety is what I like the best!
