Preview of my Afternoon Tea Book and a Giveaway!



                                                                     Hello Everyone,
                               It has been awhile since I last posted but we just got home from
                              our trip to Florida and South Carolina where we enjoyed the  warm
                              sunny days and some sightseeing etc.
                                    I will share more on that later as I took lots of photos of our
                             travels.
                                 Today,I am excited to share a few photos from my latest book/
                             magazine Afternoon Tea at Aiken House & Gardens that was waiting
                             for me when I got home!
                                                        The front cover ~ from a photo shoot by
                                                        our pond early last summer.

                                                   

                                           There are over 200 tea related images that I hope you
                                          will enjoy. I had lots to choose from because I love my
                                          tea time!

                                               Back cover

                             So once again I would like to do a giveaway to one lucky visitor....
                            just leave a comment and I will draw one name out of a teapot on
                            Easter Monday by 6 p.m.~ Good Luck!
                                If you would like to preview more pages or buy a copy
                                 for yourself or a friend you can visit MagCloud,                                                                                    here ~they will ship it to you anywhere in the
                                        world.
                                            Thank you for all your visits and your encouragement!

                                                                                                      Carolyn

Anonymous said...

My deaar daughter, who also follows your blog, gifted me with your first book and I love it.
I have raised my granddaughters and now some great-granddaughters with the love of 'teatime' and 'treats' and the beauty that this can bring to their lives. When I had tea with my grandson's family, whose wife if very dear to me, and their seven children...they always dressed for the occasion. Recently a promotion for my grandson meant a move to Ontario. My loss is my daughter's gain as they were transferred there over six years ago and now she will have her grandchildren close by. Enough 'jawing' as my father would say...I'd love to be the lucky winner. Thank you for offering this beautiful book to us.

Hallo Carolyn,

Iedere week bekijk ik je mooie blog. Ik bewonder je tuin en je servies. De Peter Rabbit-borden uit je "Easter Blessings" zijn de favoriete borden van mijn kleindochter (2 jaar). Ze vraagt er altijd naar als zij bij ons is. Ik zou het leuk vinden om je nieuwe boek te winnen.

Een hartelijke groet,
Lenneke
