I took a little time for afternoon tea yesterday. And of course, I reached first for my Mountain Rose Herbs loose leaf tea. Complete with one of their nifty press n’ brew teabags, the flavor was perfect, the tea was toasty, and altogether just perfect.
While I was sipping, I also let steep the entry names for the Pampered Glamper kit … and … after ruminating on the fabulous flavor of my white silver tea, I pulled a name out of the teapot …
Our dear friends at Mountain Rose Herbs caught wind about my new book, Glamping with MaryJane, and my appearance on the Hallmark channel’s new show, Home & Family, this week—so we paired up for a fabulous giveaway! Below is everything you need to be a pampered glamper.
What you get:
4oz Oregon Chai Tea
4oz Firefly Chai Tea
Porcelain Tea Pot, 4oz Happy Tummy Tea, 4oz Evening Repose Tea
These pink pillows were featured in the “Imagine a Place” Oct/Nov 2011 issue and are looking to adorn your couch or bedroom at home. For just $45 (each), a little piece of MaryJanesFarm magazine can be all yours. Remember, all of the proceeds (minus shipping) will benefit www.firstbook.org, a non-profit that provides new books to children from low-income families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The first one waiting for a new home is a 28″ square pillow with a white linen front beautifully embroidered in shades of pink, backed with dusty rose/mauve hand-dyed linen.
Next is the pillow pictured below on top of the couch with the pink cotton gauzy frill around the edge. It measures 18″ x 28″ and has beautiful needlepoint flowers on a tan background on the front and dusty rose/mauve hand-dyed linen on the back, bordered by 5″ of dusty rose/mauve frill.
Me and Maggie … we had it good. Long walks, toasty toes, lounging about together … we never wanted to be apart. It was summer love. She was so dreamy … all about peace and the earth … I was taken. But alas, she is on her way … in this week’s giveaway.
To win, just tell me why you’re also IN LOVE with Maggie’s Functional Organics!
A mini reusable zipper pouch and a black necklace with matching earrings, a tote, and a
scarf, all handmade from upcycled materials, were sent our way to be juried for Project F.A.R.M. (First-class American Rural Made) certification. Told by designer Stephanie M. Dejoseph (La Mia Designs) that we could keep them (WOW!), we decided to share the hand-embroidered “Farm Fresh Produce” tote and the super soft, matches-any-outfit, one-of-a-kind scarf.
Modeled by our beautiful graphic designer, Karina Elzinga, the first person to tell us what CSA they were signed up for this past summer gets the “Farm Fresh Produce” tote.
And for the first person to tell us you’ve already been snowed on (come on Dakota!), the gorgeous scarf apparently needs to be sent to you.
Round of applause for Stephanie M. DeJoseph of La Mia Designs!!!!!!
… that you should get out and garden! Willie, accompanied by one of the larger pumpkins in our patch, is boasting a cutie-patootie enameled sign that says …
