Hey, do you want to win a mr teacake t shirt?

It's pretty simple all we need is a first name for the wee dude.

You can enter in lots of ways, just post your suggestion...

  • on twitter retweet "@teeandtoast i think #mrteacake should be called... "
  • on our facebook page
  • and here on our blog, comment on this post.

The Competition ends midnight on the 27th of November, and our favourite name will be picked shortly after. If more than one person comes up with the same name then we will pick out a winner at random.

Let the naming begin.

Love Claire & Mr Teacake

*the winner can choose a mens, ladies or kids tee.

  Teacakes taste better with tea, so they so! Meet Mr Teacake, he loves a good cuppa tea & he is the latest addition to the gang. He's being printed tomorrow so we'll be seeing more of him very soon! 

Purely for research purposes I bought a 10 pack box of teacakes, I think there is now 5 left.. but probably not for much longer as even Koko the kitten is a fan too.

OH YEAH! I totally forgot to tell you that we have a new family member! KOKO! If you follow us on facebook or twitter you probably know all about her already, but incase you don't here is a pic of her being super dooper cute!

You can follow teeandtoast on twitter & kokothekitten too!

father's day 19th june

brews and newsclaire mullanComment

Father's Day is on Sunday 19th June, so remember to tell him how tea-rrific you think he is.

 

check out our cute idea's that will tell your dad how tea-rrific you think he is. We recommend ordering no later than Wed 15th June, if you live in the UK want your goodies to arrive in time.

cards - make sure you don't miss out on one of our "Daddy - you're tea-rrific!" cards.Each one is hand doodled for extra character and we use fair trade teabags in our design.

t-shirts - there are plenty to choose from but all dad's seem to have a fave... my dad's loves "Hello i'm Johnny Cash!" (it was news to me but apparently there is some joke floating around the golf club - it would be toooo long a story to tell you all!) Or maybe your dad will love, Bob Dylan,Woody GuthrieStevie Wonder... or maybe Mr T(ea)? And is the old man a bit of a dinosaur - he'd need to have a good sense of humour though! hee hee hee

mugs - there is plenty to choose from here too and all dads love to drink tea don't they?! As well as a "Make me some damn tea!" mug you could also throw in a bag of tea-rrrific tea!

mother's day 3rd april!!! ma's, mom's & mummy's, they're all tea-rrific!

our friendly blog, brews and newsclaire mullanComment

You're kind of leaving it to the last minute aren't you? We'll times a ticking and Mother's Day is this weekend - Sunday 3rd April!

We all think our mum's are pretty tea-rrific - so make sure you tell them how great they are this Sunday. One of our Mother's Day cards will surely bring a smile to your wee mummy's face but we also recommend adding in a few extra special touches too... 1. Give your mum a BIG squeezy hug. Or 2. Pick up the phone & say hello!

Don't forget 3rd April is also an important date for Fairy Godmother's too & we have the perfect card for these magical creatures! Our Fairy Godmother's cards are now half-price-ish, so no excuses!

We can also fill in the cards & post them directly to your mummies or godmothers - kind of perfect for all you lazy boys! Just ask!

If you are in Belfast City Centre you can find our cards in two of the loveliest boutiques, but be quick I hear they are all being snapped up super fast! CoCouture chocolate shop 7 Chichester Street, Belfast Stray jewellery shop 13 Church Lane, Belfast

You'll find us this weekend as usual at St George's Market come down and say hello! Saturday 9 - 3 | Sunday 10 - 4

We hope you all have a happy & sunny Sunday! Enjoy!

boys & girls, It's February and that means only a handful of days to go until we all go a bit gushy wushy! we have some gift ideas for the romantic and for the not-really-romantic at all...
  • mr teatowel. yip, this is not really romantic, but you may as well say what's on your mind & i'm sure it will get a giggle!
try something different, say i love you with a tshirt...
  • lots of cute cards that show you care!
  • or keep it small & simple, you're as cute as a button.
life is more fun when silly - especially on valentine's day. all that lovey dovey stuff is a bit gross for us, so we think our ugly mugs are the best way to make your loved one smile. you send us the picture - we'll hand draw the ugly mug & customise it by name. why not add some tea-rrific tea too and then as an extra treat make a brew for someone special! sssh! keep it a secret! each card can be handwritten with your special message & then we’ll post them for you too. that way it’s a little more fun! tee hee! this year Valentine’s Day is on a Monday so we will dispatch all the cards on Friday 11th - it might arrive a little early, but we will have it clearly marked ‘Do not open until 14th February’. when paying you will see a box for delivery notes so just remember to add your message & address or email the details to: happy@teeandtoast.com have a happy valentine's! www.teeandtoast.com

sssssh keep it a secret!
