Oct. Tea Party Continues Here


The comments were full on our Tea Party post so please continue the conversation here. You may read the October New Book Releases Tea Party post below and read the great comments, too. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we have such a great turn out and we didn't want the fun to cease.


Winners of the blog giveaways will be posted in the side bar with the town crier symbol! There are lots of freebies and giveaways on the Facebook event page, so please check out that page as well! Since we had quite a turn out and you were all so patient with the tech issues, we have a bonus giveaway of a quill pen to an additional winner!

    1. Until all of the tea and gingerbread is gone! I guess it is officially ends at Midnight. It kind of dwindles on its own.

  9. I missed a lot, too, but it was FB/computer issues.

    Ladies, thank you so much for having the party for us despite some major events you encountered. I know we would have understood had you decided to reschedule.

    Prayers and God's Blessings to each of you (and everyone here today).

    (If this posts more than once, sorry-Blog Spot just doesn't like me for some reason!!)

    1. My heroine, Sonja Hoeke, is not much of a cook. But if she keeps practicing maybe her gingerbread will improve! Try mine instead!

    2. That was Constance's problem, too, Carrie! She finally got it right. It's really an easy recipe. Maybe someone with my cooking skills can even get it right!
