As I've heard back from almost all of you about your birthday surprises, I'm going to post pictures of them below. Here are some of the notes I've had from the readers who wished me a happy birthday this year:
Thanks for the fun present I received in the mail today. Such a thoughtful and generous notion. I'm looking forward to my cup of tea! -Eve
LOVE IT! Thanks So much! LOVE Tea, too, so it's perfect. The design/artwork is so precious and sweet and whimsical ! Thank YOU! -Heather
Thank you so much for the adorable purse, Angel! Now I don't worry about looking for a tea bag when I need a cup on a cool Autumn day! – Prisca
If you wish you had one of these, mark your calendar for August 14th, and send me "happy birthday" wishes next year.
