4th of July Tart + Game + Giveaway = WOW!

Hello Friends!
This post is going to be a bit scattered but that is OK because guess what...............I am on VACATION!!!!!
Whoooop Whoooop

First business of today is to award the TEA for ONE....


Joy at Joy of Desserts 

Now, just One TEA for ONE is no FUN
so I decided that the very FIRST comment from 
KATHY from A Delightsome Life should win...

Plus I LOVE LOVE LOVE her blog.
You MUST go check it out. 

And another LUCKY winner is
Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie Blog 

(to visit her blog click HERE)

Why????  Why the heck NOT!


In other news...did you see my CUTE 
School House Rock Cupcake from Wednesday?

He was made FAMOUS by being featured at 
So you say you want a really EASY and YUMMY 4th of JULY
treat that will WOW your family and friends??


Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?


Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

NICE, Huh? 
Inspiration from Tea at Prim Rose Hill

And for the upcoming PINK Saturday how about a little GAME?? 
If YOU can tell me in the comment how many times I used a PINK
font color and what else is PINK in this blog post today, you just may win this fabulous PINK Teacup!

Today I am having Tea and Tarts with these blogs:

Hey, Trisha - sounds like fun - let's see: You have 14 words in pink PLUS your title; there are pink flowers in the background of your star-spangled cake (knock-out roses?), the tea for one prize and the teacup with the lid are pinky, and did I see a touch of pink in the Joy of Desserts logo and top of the sky in the Delightsome Life gift? Plenty of pink today! And a fun post!
Happy 4th!
Miss Kathy

OH my but I love your pink tea cup with the fancy lid!
Pink font about 14 times, pink in your post....oh so many times! At least 6 images have pink in them.
Your giveaway is very generous. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win.

Kathy said...

Hello Trisha,
I counted 15 pink words - but if you count the title too it is 25 including symbols - but, you can definitely give this to another - I am so honored that you like my blog - God has brought many blessings to my life through blogging and I definitely count meeting you as one! Your cupcake is amazing - just love School House Rock! I home schooled and music is one of those great ways to get children, well and adults, to remember thiings!
Your dessert looks amazing - love fresh fruit desserts!
Hugs again and wishing you the most Delightsome day,

18 pink flowers (counted just the light pink)
16 pink font letters

My second visit

Be back more often

Do not have a blog

You are so creative in many ways

A pleasure to visit

Your teapot/cup for one was a lovely giveaway; however a teacup with a lid is appreciated as I find myself all too often drinking tepid tea.

With gratitude,
Sylvia Faye
