SBS - Breast Cancer Awareness

Your Total Tea Experience:
Select, Brew and Savor!

Dear Catherine
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Be sure to visit our special Breast Cancer Awareness section and join us in the fight for a cure!
pink rosesWelcome:
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are joining the fight to find a cure for this devastating disease. I lost my mother to Breast Cancer several years ago and my sister is a Breast Cancer survivor.  This cause is very dear to my heart.  I know many of you have been touched by this disease as well.  Help us make a difference in the lives of so many women!  We have put together a very special selection of teas, coffees and accessories in our Breast Cancer Awareness Section.  We will be donating 10% from each item purchased to the Susan G. Komen foundation. In each shipment during the month of October we will be sending you a "pink ribbon duck" that has a pink ribbon tied around its neck with an offer that can be applied to a future order.
Also this month:                      
·         Our Iced Tea sale will be extended  throughout this month.  20% will automatically be deducted in your shopping cart.  Hurry before your favorites are gone!
·         Pick out a new teacup or mug and get 15% off all of our teacups and mugs this month.  The discount will be taken automatically during checkout so there is no need for a coupon code.  Clearance items are excluded.
Take a peek at our Halloween section for some tempting treats!  We have some new ghoulish teas, frightening coffees and haunting accessories!

Also, be sure you check out our New Additions section. Several new teas and coffees have been added this month!  Our Tea Sippers and Coffee Grinders have given these treats their stamp of approval so we know you will enjoy them too! 

Our $25 gift certificate winner for the month of September is Ann from Pennsylvania.  Congratulations, Ann!!money
Another gift certificate will be awarded for the month of October .  We will draw another name from the October orders but you can also enter by sending an email to

Let's Talk Tea.... 
  Inquiring minds want to know about Earl Grey Tea.......
Earl Grey tea is named after a nineteenth century British diplomat to China who enjoyed this tea blend that eventually would bear his name.  It is flavored with the lovely scent of bergamot and has been a tea of coice for many others since then.
Let SBS Teas help you create an original Fine Tea Experience.  You just have to add hot water.  Share with a friend or have a time alone to reflect ,enjoy and relax.

DIY Vintage-Inspired Pantyhose Pumpkin by Tesoro Fino

DIY Vintage-Inspired Pantyhose Pumpkin

Gather your supplies:  Organza and satin and lace ribbon.  The different textures will add to its charm.  Sheer black decorative pattern pantyhose, vintage jewelry, scissors, clear glue...

Fold your ribbon in half and start twisting and turning in a circular motion continually to create your rosettes to your desired size.  Then place glue on the backside and add a piece of clean ribbon on top of glue on backside to hold it all in place... Now make a bow for the top of your pumpkin and set these aside... Now place your pumpkin inside the pantyhose and cut with some additional hose so that you can tie and secure it...
  Now it's time to decorate your pumpkin with the rosettes that you've created, the bow that you made and the vintage jewelry you've gathered and start placing them at the top to hide the tied pantyhose to give it a finished look...

Place little pearls inside your rosettes to give it an added touch...
 Place a small amount of circular ribbon on the bottom where you tied the hose to finish it off.  And there you have it.  A Vintage Inspired Pumpkin for your romantic cottage or castle!
