  1. Only a few hours left! Well, whoever the winner may be, thank you, Phyllis, for providing an opportunity to keep elegance in the home through such a lovely collection of items. Good luck to all!

  2. We love Tea Time and have received every copy since Lorna has been editor. Her dad and I are great fans of tea and would totally enjoy the wonderful items in the beautiful gift basket!

  3. I have bought Tea Time before and have loved the recipes and the format of the magazine. I love setting tea for my wife and myself. As the weather gets cooler here in Northern California I start thinking about tea and how it just soothes you and lets you sit and steep a while just like a good pot of Tea.

  4. It is starting to get cooler and feeling like fall is coming here in NJ. Time to re-arrange the decorations in the home, and think of the holidays ahead while enjoying the warm comfort of tea. I can’t think of a better gift to make that moment complete!

  5. I recently took a subscription out for Tea Time Magazine and Victoria and what a blessing it would be to be the lucky winner of all things TEA…I have wanted Tea Time Magazine for a long time and look forward to my first copy and who knows I might be drinking the tea from the givaway basket and also enjoying your new book on Tea Treats. Thank you for this most gracious giveaway. May you be blessed. With a grateful heart,

  6. I receive Tea Time Magazine and absolutely love the recipes!!! I have tea with my friends once a month and love sharing the things I learn from each magazine article. Thank you for adding to the memories I have with each tea.

  7. Thank you for so gracious to take time out of your beyond busy schedule to clarify the entry / email situation. You are simply the best! But I knew that already! xo

  8. I have loved drinking hot tea for years and would love to win this lovely tea basket. Always enjoy reading your blog and the comments too.

  9. Phyllis love you “Journal” posts and all of the Hoffman magazines – especially when you share your love of Tea! Always share with our Tea Friends at Tea & Thyme and re-create your wonderful recipes at our Tea Celebration Events! Thank you!

  10. I don’t have a blog just love anything by Phyllis Hoffman DePiano–have Victoria and Southern Lady and your beautiful Evening in May CD. I collect tea pots–my two specials are the first one given to me by a Sunday School teacher when I was in the 7th grade and a blue & white one my daughter brought back from a mission trip to Russia several years ago. Thanks again for starting the Ribbon in My Journal–love it. Oh, I have lived in eastern North Carolina all of my life. Your gift offer is beautiful and will be a treasure to the recipient!

  11. This Tea Lover’s Giveaway is exquisite and perfect for every day.

  12. Beautiful!!!! I sure would love to win this…. I never win things….. but still put my name in….. Everything looks so gorgeous…..I give tea parties in my home…. I do not advertise, only use word of mouth…. but my hubby Sir William, and I are having a ball. thank you.

  13. I noticed a lot of people commenting about not using Facebook or Twitter, but I remember also seeing an option to enter using email when I noticed this contest on my iPhone.

  14. I do enjoy your blog and often “borrow” your ideas for my apartment. I would love to win the tea basket to enjoy with my daughter. Thank you for all your work! Blessings, Linda

  15. Sadly, as several have already stated, this is a rather biased contest. I purchase many books from Hoffman media, stalk the newsstands for (and purchase) the latest Southern Lady, Victoria and Tea TIme magazines and look forward to The Ribbon In My Journal emails. I choose not to participate in FB and Twitter but do follow Pinterest and The Ribbon in My Journal boards. As you see, I am a die hard fan and totally support and appreciate you. All of this I mention in heartfelt sincerity.
    Thank you for listening and hopefully changing your contest rules to include all of us.
    Your tea basket is absolutely lovely!

  16. So sad that your contest discriminates against those of us that are not on Facebook or Twitter. I’ve been a long time fan and subscriber of Victoria and Tea Time magazines. Very disappointed in your bias contest !

  17. We avid readers of “Tea Time” and other publications of the same as well as Phyllis’ blog don’t count? I too, was not allowed to enter. I am sad indeed. I love the blog and all things “tea”. Have hosted many a tea party. This basket looks so inviting!

  18. I love everything tea and Victorian. Love the Tea and Scones book! I made the white chocolate peppermint scones and everyone raved at the Christmas tea I attended.So many other wonderful scones to make. I have a teapot and teacup collection. I use my garden window for teapots rather than plants and change them with the seasons. I would love to win this lovely basket! So glad that you publish Victoria as well as Tea Time. My very favorite magazines.

  19. Verrrry sad, that if we don’t choose to do the FB, Twitter, Etc stuff…we cannot participate is so many grrrreat Give-a-ways. 🙁

  20. Like several other readers, I also cannot seem to figure out how to enter the giveaway. Although I enjoy the blog for the same reason I enjoy Victoria, I think it would be fun to be able to enter.
    Thanks for sharing your memories and experiences with us. I feel as if I have met a new friend.

  21. What a delightful give away! It would be so lovely to be chosen as the winner. I can think of a few magazines I would linger through while savoring such an elegent little respite. 🙂

  22. Beautiful giveaway. I would love to win. I love Victorian decor and love tea and love your publications. Thanks for taking me away from reality into a dream world for a little while at a time. You make a difference in the lives of others who share your interests. Thank you for all that you do. Laura

    1. I also would like to enter to win this beautiful basket of wonderful things but if you do not do Facebook or Twitter you cannot even enter. This is an unfair restriction to people that are more private and do not do these social media.

  23. A lovely collection for tea lovers. I really enjoy Tea Time magazine and have used many of the recipes in my tea parlor for afternoon tea parties. I look forward to each new issue. Victoria is another one of my favorite magazines.

  24. I too wish to win this generous basket of goodies. Like all the ladies above I do not have Twitter or face book is there any chance to somehow be included?

  25. The basket is beautiful and would love to have a chance, but I do not use Facebook or Twitter. I do, however, subscribe to many of your publications such as Victoria, Teatime, The Cottage Journal, Celebrate, Southern Lady, and Taste of the South. I am Donna Pastor, bpastor68@gmail.com–give me a chance to win and others who do not twitter or Facebook.

  26. Like many other loyal readers I do not do Facebook or Twitter, and I do not think that should be the deciding criteria to eliminate anyone. I am an avid fan of Teatime and your wonderful blog. Thank you ever so kindly for letting me express my opinion.

  27. Must I involve myself in Facebook or Twitter to be able to be included in the lot to win your lovely tea basket? I’m not fond of either but so enjoy your blog and lovely magazines. Very disappointed.

    1. I would love to win this lovely basket. Tea has always been a
      Favorite of my mother,aunts and
      Sisters. The sweets would also be
      An added treat and would bring back warm memories.

  28. I LOVE Victoria Magazine and have every issue printed. I was thrilled when the magazine returned. My daughter is getting married next March and I’ve ordered “Tea & Sweets”…many of the recipes will be served at her reception. I will be hosting an announcement tea before Christmas for her and can’t wait to try the recipes.

  29. Victoria is my favorite magazine! What a lovely tea basket! I’ve been a tea lover for as long as I can remember and it would be heaven to win this! Thank you!

  30. I would love to win this beautiful basket of tea-related fun! My grandmother started a drinking tea in fancy cups tradition with me when I was a child. I have continued this wonderful tradition with my granddaughter. And, I just learned I will have another granddaughter in January to share our family love of all things “tea” .

  31. I sponsor a Valentine Tea in our church; our little community in rural Texas had to be introduced to the love of tea and tea time. Now we all exchange new teas and tea ideas.

  32. Such a lovely basket. I adore that little sugar bowl. I have a border in my bedroom much like that sugar bowl pattern — so neat. I am blessed with 4 granddaughter and one of them is definitely a tea lover.. I give each one a tea cup and saucer on their birthday in hopes they will enjoy having their special friends for tea.

  33. What fun! I am looking forward to adding the book to my collection in any case. Thank you for imagining it as part of a gift basket we might win!

  34. I absolutely love this basket – how great it would be to win it! Thank you for offering it. I love tea and all thongs related, especially TeaTime magazine.

  35. This is a lovely gift…I love anything to do with tea…I already have so meant tea pots but there always seems to be room for one more…my latest is one with lady bugs on it!
    I usually switch out my teapots according to the occasion and the seasons…which reminds me, I have to get out my pumpkin orange teapot! Thank you again for the special giveaway.

  36. I love everything about what you are doing….”The Ribbon in my Journal” seems to always touch me is such a sweet way….have loved Tea Time magazine for a long, long time….and just love the beauty that even the very thought of a time for tea stirs in my heart. Would so love this to brighten my world right now.

  37. After 50 years of grinding my ow beans I have converted to drinking tea. I would love this charming basket. I have all your other ‘tea’ books. look forward to having this one, too.

  38. I share the lovely stories and pictures with my daughter Julie..She and I love the beauty that you bring into our lives when you share with us..thank you and God Bless.

  39. I hope, I hope, I win the gift basket! I am awaiting my copy of Tea and Sweets! I collect teapots, tea cozies and ALL THINGS tea. I absolutely love TeaTime magazine. That and Victoria are my fave magazines. I always make sure my subscriptions are up to date.

  40. That is a wonderful gift. I collect tea pots and this one is beautiful and would make a great addition to my collection.
    I have also made several tea cozies.
