Link Party No.84 and TRH 4th Anniversary Giveaway!

Hello everyone! Wow, I have been blogging for 4 years!? Actually, my bloggavesary was in September, but coming back from Japan, and with everything happening, I didn't plan well for the giveaway. I am sorry for keeping you guys waiting!

Blogging brought a new found joy into my life, even though sometimes I am not sewing or crafting and there isn't much to share, I still love to update my blog to talk to you all. So, thank you so much for still coming to visit me to see what I am up. :)

To show my gratitude, I have a giveaway every year... Are you curious to find out what I am giving away this year? Well, some of you guessed right, I am giving away some things I brought from Japan! Are you curious what they are?

They are...

Lariat style stitched bead necklace made by my sister. As I mentioned in my post before, she is an amazing beads artist. She will be happy that one of my readers will cherish and love her jewelry. There are several ways to wear this beauty, it is 32" long.

Origami and washi-tape set. The Origami is 9cm x 9cm and comes with 32 different Japanese style designs. You could do origami or use it for card making, modpage,etc...

What would you do with them?

This adorable A-line tank top is made by the collaboration of the Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo and Orla Kiely. It is size S (bust 77 - 83cm), and long enough to cover my rear. Wouldn't it be fun to add to your wardrobe?

This laminated cotton is printed by LECIEN. It is 20"x 22". If you are a bit worried about handling the laminated cotton, you can read the post I did a while back. It is such a cheerful and fun print!

The last but not least of the prizes are..."Bento set"! Sorry, there is not bento box for this set, but this set comes with an eco-bag (15 1/2"x 16 1/2"), laminated and lined bag (4 1/2"H x 4 1/2"D x 6 1/2"W), bunch of cute picks and a matryoshka bandana!

Don't forget, this post is also a link party post! So...I thought I would do this giveaway a bit different than the other giveaways that I have done in the past.

Here are the ways to enter;

1. Link up your project (1st entry)

2. Leave a comment and tell me your number for the link party project.

Note: Of course you will increase the chance of winning if you link up many projects, but I only count one comment per person.(2nd entry)

If you don't have anything to link up, you can leave comment on which "Trip to Japan" was your favorite. I will count the comment as 1 entry. :)

The winner will be announced on Monday, November 5th.

As usual here are the rules for linking:

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.




That's it! Go ahead to link up and show us what you have been working on!

  7. Hi. I am link number 25. The whole time you were in Japan and since I have been working on a quilt for boys. This is made from 8 mens business shirts I got from the charity shop for a total of $5. Love all your posts and am so pleased you had such a great time. I am from CHCH NZ where we were hit by earthquakes 4 months before Japan. It is a tragedy and trauma for all.

  29. I enjoyed your post about bonding with your younger sister, whom you haven't had a chance to get to know much. I can relate, I got married and left the house when my youngest sis was only one! Since my daughter is two years younger than her, the girls like to hang out often, which means I am always around! I hope your relationship with your sister grows stronger, even though you're far apart.

  46. Oooooh I have no links to link up, but my favourite Japan trip post was probably the conveyor belt sushi idea or the shopping trip~ The conveyor belt idea though... Who knew you could order food to your table through a tough screen? PURE genius.

  48. My favourite part of the Trip to Japan series is the post on Shopping Part 3. I like to see the different fashion that is available in other countries. for example, the simple lines and cut of the clothes that you bought, which is rarely seen in my country.

  49. I don't have a link, but I loved your post about the food in Japan. Thank you for sharing your trip with us, it was wonderful to read about! Thanks for the giveaway as well. Congratulations on four years; may you blog for many more!

  54. There were so many favorites about your trip to Japan: the clothes you picked out and bought there; the nature shots (since I was a baby there, I do not remember what Japan looked like and have always been curious as to what Japan has looked like so that satisfied a missing piece for me all these decades); the food (I loved the Hello Kitty bento boxes for the kids and how you order through an automated box. I wish you would have shown a photo of the conveyor belt b/c I am very curious as to what it looks like and how it works; I have never heard of anything like that before. That seems so cool)!:) I thought it was equally important that you showed up an update on the tsunami damage b/c you are right: the news has not been covering it and "out of sight, out of mind". It is good to be reminded that they are still suffering. It was sad reading and seeing those but was important to hear and see, nevertheless. They should not be forgotten. :( I also loved seeing the quilts on the floor and rugs at your sister's house. So pretty! I think I would be afraid of it slipping under my feet and causing me to fall, personally, but it is cozy/comforting/gorgeous/homey/beautiful to look at. :)Thank you.
