Farmhouse Sprig Teacup Give Away

It's Farmhouse Kitchen's one year anniversary and my 255th post...so I have decided it would be nice to do a give away. This year of blogging has been life changing for me ... I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support by all of you. My dear blog friends. You have been with me in happy days and sad days....good times and bad times. The loss of Buddy and the happiness of Teddy.Cooking, gardening and just living life here on the Farm.There are alot of wonderful people out there in this huge world...and this July as I look back over my blogging year I realize that I have been lucky enough to have made friends from all corners of this beautiful earth.

I consider each of you a friend...and I love you all.

I will let Teddy pick a winner with his paw on Wednesday, July 21st.

Sending love,
Kary and Teddy


  1. I love your blog. You have great pictures and wonderful recipes. I have loved reading about Teddy and cried with you for Buddy. Thank you for sharing your life with all of us. We love you too.


  2. So glad to see you back and glad that life is settling down. Hope all goes well for your FIL! Teddy is a little doll and I can see he HAS brought joy back into your home! Congrats on your anniversary! That dainty tea cup is charming! V.

    I think Teddy is looking cuter every day.

  6. I am always happy to hear about your new puppy and happy to see your blog again! I hope you are having a wonderful summer!!!

  7. Congratulations on one year and such an amazing outpouring of love, loss and heartfelt honesty.

    Love you and the bear.

  8. Dear Kary, Happy Blogiversary! That is so exciting and I so agree with you. What an amazing group of friends we've found in each other... That little tea cup is so sweet and I hope that Teddy will pick me!!! Love, Silke

  9. I have enjoyed journeying with you, and tenderly watching your broken heart begin to heal when Teddy arrived. Please enter me, the teacup is precious.

  10. happy anniversary...i did not realize it was just one year! don't put me in the giveaway. i have too much stuff so someone else should win! i just went swimming!!! i haven't been in my pool in years. i was quite a swimmer back in the day. i forgot how great it is. i am going to make a point of trying to swim as much as i can for the rest of the summer. it sure cools things off and the gardens look wonderful from the inside looking out! if teddy likes staying in the yard i think that is great!

  11. It's been wonderful finding your blog; enjoyable read every time I visit. Next week, I'm doing a giveaway every day.

  12. Oh Teddy?
    don't forget your parasol on your next outing

  38. Dear Kary, Teddy's paw doesn't have to pick my name on Wednesday, as I actually do not need another teacup (me being more of a coffee person anyway), but I still wanted to say "Happy Blog Anniversary"!
    It is always a pleasure when I go to my dashboard and see you have written a new posting.
    For me, blogging is still relatively new, too, but I think I have truly found "MY" literary genre with it, as a writer, I mean.
    Strangely, I can't remember how I first came across your blog, but I do remember that I instantly decided to become a follower.
    And, amazingly enough, you have even left comments on my blog from time to time, too! :-)

  39. (This may appear to be a second comment - I am not sure whether my first one went through or not.)

    Dear Kary,
    congratulations on a wonderful year of blogging!
    I feel honored having had a chance to meet you through this wonderful medium. I am looking forward to each new post of yours!
    Please give Teddy a hug and my very best wishes to you,

  40. lovely blog- so happy to stumble upon it/you.

    This is a lovely gift- I have a teapot/teacup collection.

    I am also doing my first giveaway on my blog- So many blogger friends had such positive things to say about the decals that I am giving a set away-
    Here is the link if you are interested:


    Hope you have a great weekend.

  41. Congratulations on your first year!! It's been great getting to know you Kary. I too, have been blessed by meeting so many blogging women ~ it is amazing!!!
    Hope you are having a blessed weekend.

  42. My dear Kary,
    Warmest congratulations on your blog anniversary. I am so glad we came across each
    other on this venue. With my unstable sitution and not knowing whether I'll even have a place to live, I wouldn't need that lovely teacup ( I'll probably be selling much of my stuff and storing most of it ) but you are so nice to celebrate your anniversary with a gift...just like you to be so generous.

    Love to you and your hubby and Teddy.

  43. Best wishes on such an achievement of blog postings! I so enjoy visiting you - lovely descriptions and such soft and gentle images.

  44. Happy Anniversary! One year. Seems like a much more mature blog than that. I started at the end of 2008. It has meant a lot to me, too. I have enjoyed meeting friends like you. Love, Shari

  45. That´s so sweet of you. And congratulations to your first anniversary! :-)

  46. Happy One Year Anniversary! Teddy is just too adorable!


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate all your kind comments more than you can know.
