A TEA TIME Giveaway!

*This giveaway is now closed!*

*Please note in order for a chance to WIN, you must answer me both questions below.*

Rise and shine! How's this to brighten your Friday morning?
I love handmade items, they mean so much more than any store bought item could. They are personal and made with love and from one's precious time. One day I hope to sit down at my sewing machine and see what I remember of it and what items I can craft up. One day, I said.

This week I have something for all the tea drinkers of the world, who read my blog! You can win this Tea Tote! How cute is that! Check it out!

This lovely Tea Tote was handmade by Allison from In A Nutshell. She is very creative and has a busy Etsy shop going, called The Cookie Jar. There you will also find many more tea totes, aprons, clothing, custom orders and more!

Allison says:

Tea totes are a tea lovers best friend. They keep 8 of your favorite individually wrapped tea bags at your fingertips, and hold them snug so they don't get lost in the never ending
abyss that is your purse, or if you're like me, smashed and broken in your back

All tea totes are sturdy and close quickly and easily with an elastic
band. Each is unique and features a vintage button - no two are ever exactly the
same. Love that!

Teas in photo are not included, sorry.
Measurements: 3" x 4.25" closed
Care: hand wash warm, lay flat to dry, warm iron if needed

Ready to WIN? For your 1st entry to win this Tea Tote, all I ask is
A.please visit her Etsy shop The Cookie Jar and tell me what 1 item you like most there AND
B.from her profile, tell me what store you can see her aprons in person!
Comment below with both answers (or I delete!) and don't forget to leave your email!

But wait! and earn a 2nd bonus entry by twittering this giveaway!
Leave an additional comment with that tweet's url.
To get the link to your Twitter post, click under your message where it says "less than _____ ago" and that will take you to a page where you can copy the url of your message. (thanks to Elle for showing us that)

Oh and that's not all! For a second chance at winning a Tea Tote, please visit Allison's Blog In A Nutshell, where she has a Giveaway going on too, for another Tea Tote! How fun!
