Teacup Tuesday and My First Giveaway!

Today is Teacup Tuesday over at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspiration and at Martha's Favorites so imagine my delight when I came out of my house this morning and discovered these joyful little frogs having a teaparty!

Frog Number One had a lovely little teacup and saucer sitting beside him, but instead of sipping tea sedately, he looked like he was about to jump willy-nilly into the lily pad bath!  If you look closely, you'll see that he even had a tiny little "tea sandwich" on his saucer, the kind of "tea sandwich" that only a frog can truly appreciate.  Not cucumber, of course, but a very tasty bug!

Apparently he had his eye on the other "goodies" that were floating on an exquisite rose dish in the centre of the lily pad bath!   Hmmmm ... I wonder what the provenance of that sweet little rose dish is!

One of the other frogs, was enjoying a "cuppa" with a delicate tea cup made of shell!

Those frogs were having such a merry tea party, that things started to get a little riotous!

The lily pad bath was swinging back and forth and I began to wonder what exactly was in those tea cups!  I'm glad to say that everything has now returned to normal out by the lily pad bath.  I suspect the frogs are having a little snooze to rest up from their wild morning tea party.

A merry heart does good like a medicine.

My First Giveaway:

Today I am announcing my very first giveaway!  I'm so excited about this because I truly love to give presents.  I've decided to have a giveaway in honour of my little frogs and the fact that I recently reached two milestones with my blog:  45 followers and my 50th post!   I have so enjoyed finding my way around blogland and meeting so many wonderful fellow bloggers.  The past two + months have been wonderful.

Now honestly, I have to tell you that the item I'm giving away has very little monetary value, but I do think he's rather sweet and has been a favourite of mine for a long time.

He's only about an inch long and the little lily pad he sits on is about 1 1/2".

So here are the rules if you would like to enter to win this cute little froggy guy:

1.  Become a follower if you aren't already.

2.  Post about my giveaway on your own blog.

3.  Leave me a comment on this post letting me know you have done so and leaving a link to your own post.

I will put all of the entries into a hat and draw the winner on June 30th, so you have until then to enter.  I will contact the winner for a mailing address.

Hope everyone enjoys a WONDERFUL Teacup Tuesday!


  1. What fun! Such a cute froggie tea party! I love your imagination! I meant to tell you before that I thought of Gordon Lightfoot as soon as I saw the name of your blog. I always liked his music and went to a concert here on the Island to hear him. Many years ago, an old boyfriend of mine used to do Lightfoot's songs with his guitar. Wonderful memories!
    Thanks for sharing today and for joining me for Tea Time. I am a follower, BTW. Have yourself a beautiful summer's day.


  2. Well your froggies did have fun now didn't they? Congrats on yr mile stones and keep blogging it is very rewarding in it's self

    Love Dawn xx

  3. Your giveaway frog is so cute. I have no idea what we would do with him here. I hesitate to even enter since it isn't my house and I have zero space! But he is adorable! And your tea party frogs are too cute ~ seriously. How big is it? It was hard to get a sense of the dimensions from the pictures. Congratulations on your blogging. It is wonderful that you enjoy it... that is the main thing.

  4. Hey Robin,

    Glad you could drop by my tea party.

    Not sure if you were asking about my frog party or my giveaway.

    The giveaway frog is really very teeny tiny! I think you could probably find a spot for such a wee little thing. His lily pad is aprox. 1 1/2 inches across and he is only 1 inch in length. I think a big part of his charm is that he is so small!

    The frog party, on the other hand, is actually a regular sized bird bath. I haven't actually found any birds getting up the nerve to go near it yet!

    Sandi, I love that particular Lightfoot song. I sang when I was in a children's choir years ago and that's when I first fell in love with his mellow voice and lyrics. Still love him, even though I haven't yet made it to one of his concerts, so I'm a wee bit jealous of you.

    Dawn, thanks for the encouragement. You are right, blogging is a reward in itself!

  5. Hello Robin- I laughed though the entire teaparty and posted about you on my blog. I was already following and would love to be entered into your give away. Congrats on your blogging milestones, keep the posts coming, you are a delight. Take care. http://appleteacup.blogspot.com/

  11. What a delightful froggy tea party by the birdbath - cute. Congrats on your blogging milestones.

  12. Cute little critters, you've got there! : )

  13. I'm a new follower, actually became one before I read about your giveaway. What a beautiful post. I love your flowers. Have a great day.

  14. I was asking about the birdbath. It is adorable. I imagine I could find a nook for such a tiny frog. He is terribly cute. I rejected your comment but only because you did get one of my patterns and I want you to email me and not leave it in the comments. I can't figure out how to put my email in my sidebar, but it is listed on all my HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY posts. So, yes, you did get one. I don't call it exactly that but it was close enough;-)

  15. That was so sweet and the frogs are a hoot. I can almost see them having a lovely sit down tea with all the trimmings. Thanks for the smiles!
