Tea Cup Exchange ~ The Reveal...


This year I was delighted to participate in Stephanie’s wonderful tea cup exchange for the very first time!
What could be lovelier than selecting, wrapping and sending a teacup to a new friend in another country, and then receiving one from another friend altogether…?

How exciting to entrust that special parcel to the care of the post office, and then anxiously waiting to hear of its arrival…

Oh!  And what fun to unwrap a parcel addressed to you and catch the first glimpse of your pretty new tea cup and goodies!
 ~
I was paired with Sandra, who lives in Canada!  You can visit her lovely blog to see what I sent her…

 …And my teacup arrived from Chel, who lives in England!   
I was so excited, because England is one of the places I would like to visit…someday…


 
  …Just look at this sweet tea cup she sent me! 



 
It has dainty pink roses hand painted on it, and is the perfect size too!  I do so love a big cup of tea!





  …Chel also made this pretty pink heart for me…

…And gave me a tea strainer – exactly what I needed!



And she also sent me some English Breakfast tea…hmmm…my favourite!


 Do visit The Enchanting Rose to see the other pretty tea cups and goodies in Stephanie's link-party!

 


 I can’t wait for the next exchange, which will probably take place in October, so for all those ladies who would like to participate, keep an eye on The Enchanting Rose for news on this fabulous exchange!

Happy Friday, dear friends!
Thank you so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you enjoyed this tea inspired post…

Blessings,

When I saw your tea cup my first thought was, "That looks just like Kelly-Anne...dainty, elegant, and oh so feminine." :)

Your tea cup from Chel is a true delight, my friend. And the heart is simply precious. I am very thankful you were able to join the exchange and my heart is FULL of joy knowing you had a lovely time. {I am praying your mom and sister receive their package very soon}.

Have a delightful and blessed weekend, my dear. Hugs!

Kelly-Anne, I love everything you sent me, especially the beautiful teacup. Your package was full of thoughtfulness and generosity and I'm so thankful for not only the exchange but for you. Your partner sent you so many lovely things and your new teacup is so pretty and delicate. What a lovely way to enjoy your tea!

Such a lovely teacup! I didn't participate in the exchange, but I did participate once. Such fun! Chel is one of my favorite bloggers...she is such a lovely person. Her blog is the one with the tutorial about the no-reply blogger I told you about. I've been catching up on all your posts. Your bracelet is so pretty. We made paper bead necklaces when my daughter was in Girl Scouts years ago. The muffins look divine! I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Hugs to you!

Blessings, Vicky
