Holiday Blend from Tea of Life from Hooked on Quilting

This year has flown by to say the least. Even with just having hosted our fall Stitchin’ Camp weekend-before-last, I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that there are only two months left in this year. I can hear my mom telling me when I was a kid wishing for Christmas or my birthday to come not to wish my life away because it’d go by quickly enough when I got older. Boy, was she ever right.

Last month we spent a week in Gatlinburg, TN which isn’t too far up the road from ...

Holiday Cheer Tea – A Downton Abbey Ltd. Edition from Hooked on Quilting

Since the new Downton Abbey movie was released this past weekend, I thought this would be a good time to review a limited edition tea that was gifted to me a couple of years ago. While it was made by The Republic of Tea it was purchased at TJMaxx. Sadly the tea is not showing as a current offering on The Republic’s website, BUT they are showing a Christmas themed tea that you’ll probably want to snag before it’s gone. I’d be surprised if it isn’t just as good as the one that I’m ...

Christmas Tea by Darvilles of Windsor from Hooked on Quilting

It’s time for another tea review! So far, I’ve given you positive reviews about Christmas tea blends that I’ve enjoyed. Now, however, I am going to give you a review of one that I did not enjoy. It’s only fair that I give you the opposite side of the spectrum since life in general is not always rosy.
Pic-Darvilles Christmas Tea
When searching for Christmas teas a few years ago, I ran across this brand on one of my favorite sites for ordering tea, teadog.com. I decided to give it a try since the description said it was ...

Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons from Hooked on Quilting

It’s July 25. I know, I’m stating the obvious here, but that means that today is the day I talk about another Christmas tea that I enjoyed this past season. It also means that Christmas is now only five, yes, only five, more months away. That’s not long at all if you stop and think how quickly the first five months went by. As if we needed a reminder, the last couple of days have been pleasantly cooler here than normal for the end of July in the south. Ahhh, if only all of summer could be ...

Star Spangled Banner 5-pointed paper pieced star in 2 sizes: 6″ and 12″ from Wisonsin Quilting
