REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

I was asked by DaySpring Cards if I would review some of their 'tea related' products and have pleasure in doing so here.As I was unpacking the products soon after they arrived, Alan walked through the door and immediately said, "They are nice, aren't they".





The 3 teapots seen here easily hold 4 cups of tea or 3 mugs and they pour well with no drips. Each product has a verse of scripture amongst the design and are well made and would be a lovely addition to any kitchen or tea party. All products in my opinion would make a very nice gift.

http://store.dayspring-store.com/teandte.html

The above link will take you to the DaySpring store where they have many more products for sale







The above teapot and cup and saucer show Psalm 126:3 "The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy". The cup is a good sized teacup but very dainty and light to hold.








Here we have a very pretty teapot, the handle on the lid being a Bluebird. The verse is Psalm 145:13 "The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made". Being English where tea has for centuries been our main drink I have to say that this cup would not be considered a teacup here as it would be too small for our regular brew. To us it would be a Demi-tasse coffee cup for strong after dinner coffee. However it would be ideal for an older person who maybe is unable to hold a large cup, or even a child. I would also make an ideal gift for someone who likes to display cups and saucers on a shelf. For myself, I am going to put mine on one of my shelves of minature books as I do have 2 sets of Demi-tasse cups. The teapot will certainly be used for tea though.






And now to the GIVEAWAY! The above set is a heavier porcelain and is microwave and dishwasher safe. The teapot as you can see has a message of Hope with the cups conveying Joy and Peace. The verse depicted is "The God of Love fill you with all Joy and Peace" Romans 15:13. This could also make an ideal gift for someone you were wanting to encourage.




If you would like to take part in this GIVEAWAY then leave me a comment saying so and please link this post on your blog. The draw will take place on
6th June It will arrive safely as it will be despatched directly from DaySpring.




Another 'tea related' product. This pretty box holds 20 cards. 10 with the design seen here on the top of the box and 10 as seen below showing the verse from


Romans 15:13 "May the God of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace". Again a very pretty gift or a box of loving cards to send to folks.

Oh these items are beautiful. I love Dayspring products anyway and am so missing my Bible bookstore where I would find such items. I appreciate your mentioning that the tea pours nicely. So many tea pots are not designed well. Thanks for doing this review and please toss my name into the cap. Thank you!

Annie said...

I'd love to be in the give away. Thanks!

The teapots are wonderful. It would be hard to choose one but I think in the end it would have to be the pretty purple pansies.

Came to your blog through Elizabethd and will add yours to my dove blog. I've never seen teapots and cups with quotes from the Bible on them. They are beautiful. The Hope one very appropriate for me as the mother dove of my beautiful baby doves(Victory and Purity) is called Hope! Please add my name to the giveaway. Best wishes.

Hello,

At the moment I can't even visit my own site blog as the server is having difficulties. I would have written you via email but I can't get your email in blogger to show it to me.

Let me know if you can view this page:
http://www.sparrowssong.com/skyrealm/alongthecrestofheaven.html

If so, then the server is the problem and that will only take time to resolve. But if you can't see that page, then chances are your IP is blocked. If you know your IP, I will see if it can be re-established if you sent it to me. Thank you.

Please sign me up. These look great. These are such pretty sets. I wish we could share some hot tea and have a chat. Trish

a woman who is said...

Oh I am in! Sign me up :) I love teapots. The first one is so traditional I adore it. The second one made me immediately think of my grand babies. How sweet. And the last one, well that is one awesome message to have before you while you are sipping on a cup of tea.

Kate said...

They are lovely! Please count me in too! Tea with a message!

I have to say the second teapot was a special favourite too regardless of the small cup!!!

Sue said...

Lovely products from Dayspring! I would love to add any one of them to my collection of tea pots!

Peggy said...

Thank you so much for your comment. I do appreciate all my new friends. You and I are about the same age and have been married to the same man for the same number of years. We will celebrate our 50th. April 23 2010. oops that didn't come out right. Not the same same man but the one man. I understand now about the link for Day Spring.

Melanie said...

Hia Barbara, what lovely tea sets. I do like the detail of the blue bird on the teapot handle. Such a sweet touch reflecting scripture and reminding us that he know every bird and supplies their needs. Perhaps the set is aimed at having tea with little ones and starting a discussion?

I didn't know about this company, and do like the tea set in your giveaway. I know the person I would give it to too. :-)

If you think of how many times you stop and make a cup of tea in a day and have a quiet moment, it seems so apt to think of God then, before going off on the next spurt of activity. Lovely concept.

Susan Skitt said...

Looks lovely. I love Dayspring products, especially their cards.

I met the editor of DaySpring at a writers conference a few years back, it's on my to-do list to submit (smile).

I love the Scripture, The God of Love... fills us with all joy and peace. ALL! God doesn't leave any part out!

Thank you for your lovely email too. I'm so glad the book arrived safe and sound. I pray the Lord blesses you through it.

I also loved your tour in the post above. That little Owl was adorable! I don't get online as much as I used to but certainly enjoy my visits when I do.

Have a wonderful weekend!
