We Have A Winner

We have a winner! Karen of Sweet Necessi-Teas is the winner of our blog contest. To all of you who played our guessing game....thanks for playing! All of you who guessed Susan Branch were right and Karen was selected randomly from those names. Congratulation Karen!

Karen has a wonderful tea themed business and if you have never visited her site...what are you waiting for! You'll love it!

Combining her love of sewing and needlework with her passion for tea eventually led her to create a line of clothing, aprons, tea table items, and accessories for herself that she could not find in stores. When friends and even total strangers began asking for her sources, she began selling them at seasonal craft shows and a booth at a local antique and craft mall.

Karen says, "though often delayed, the dream of having my own shop never died. Victoria magazine, and later, Romantic Homes kept it alive, waiting for the season in my life when the dream could become a reality.

After 2 1/2 years, I gained enough confidence to take my business a step further and in 2006, opened my own website boutique, Sweet Necessi-Teas. My product line has gradually expanded from tea time clothing, aprons, tea cup and saucer totes, and linens to include tea sets and accoutrements.

My dream has become a reality.

In this fast paced world we live in, taking time to smell the roses or spending time with loved ones over a cup of tea is a respite that refreshes. My hope is that I can inspire you do just that!"

Thanks Karen for entering our blog contest! We'll be sending your goodies soon!
