  7. I just had a cup of tea this morning in a mug, not a Christmas cup and saucer. Now that would taste even better.
    I love your new banner and Christmas photos. They are beautiful!

  22. Kary, I've been so absent here lately (you and little Teddy continue to be in my thoughts no matter where I am!), I don't feel right in entering your lovely giveaway, but I wanted to tell you how thoughtful, meaningful and generous your gift is, and I'm sure that whomever the winner is, it will be a cherished treasure!
    Your new photos look beautiful, and set the perfect tone! Well done!

  23. Hi Teddy, it's Duke and my mom loves tea and she loves china, she's a dishaholic! I know she'd love that beautiful teacup! Do the cookies come with it? If she wins would you drop in a doggy biscuit for me? Thanks and have a great day!

  25. Just too cute. I'm right behind you closing in on the big 300. I'm just looking at your wonderful pictures of VT on the right. I remember so many of those places and scenes from our Sept. trip too. Was that you right behind us with the camera out the window... I thought so.... too funny.

    Toodles,
    Kate

  37. You are the seasons, Kary. Get me in the mood for every one. I just added up. 2 Blogs, 213 posts so far. No stopping for me now. I am a mug and coffee person and an iced tea person, but if I were to win your pretty tea cup, I promise to drink hot, spicy tea and think of you. Oh heck, I will get one of my unused china cups and do it anyway. Congratulations on 300!

  43. Hi Teddy, it's me Cat Boy. I have a cat named Teddy which you should not let influence you in any way, but . . . do me a favor and put your paw on my name. I drink a lot of tea and I even have a tablecloth similar to the one in the picture so the cup would look nice in my kitchen.

    Give Kary my best.

  66. Congratulations!! I am up to about 60. It takes me forever to photograph, choose photos and write a post. Then, I want it oceanfront for more than a day. Do you cater? My cousins in Santa Barbara might want to know about you. Your CV is impressive. Have you heard about Mario Batali's Eatly in NYC. My girls have been and said it is amazing. I'm dying to go.
    Best,
