Tutorial: Tea Tin Candles

Hello my tea-friends!

I just had to post about an awesome tutorial from Denise at Uniquely Tea! Aren't these candles just so lovely! I have to make some for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, any holiday or occasion! Wouldn't this be a great gift to your tea party hostess? Maybe a unique and special little "thank you" for all her work and time? Thank you to Denise of Uniquely Tea!

Can you believe it?? I am one of the lucky winners from Angela's giveaway at Tea with Friends! I have never read any of Laura Childs' books, but I am so excited to read one finally! And she included some tea samples for me! ;) What a great giveaway! Thanks Angela!!

Cackleberry Club Mystery #1

"In a rehabbed Spur station outside the small town of Kindred, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here--fluffy omelets, slumbering volcanoes, toad in the hole, and eggs on a cloud. This cozy little café even offers a book nook and knitting nest--and business has been good. But two murders, a runaway girl, a vicious widow, and a messianic cult leader just might lead to their undoing."

Have a great Thursday!
