A Perfectly Pink...Tea Cup Exchange

 Oh, could there be anything more delightful in this world than a tea cup exchange, sweet friends...?


I was overjoyed to participate in this delightful event for the second~time around...it is simply thrilling to receive the name and address of your partner in the exchange and then to put together a delightful little package especially for her...

Oh, and then to wait in expectation for yours to arrive...how I love it!
I have already made such lovely friends through this wonderful exchange, and I would encourage you to join in the fun next time around...

~
This time around I sent a tea cup to Belle in Australia...and I received mine from dear Leah in England who blogs at Faith's Craft Box...

Leah sent me such pretty goodies, and just look at this perfectly pink tea cup!


In case you haven't guessed yet, pink is my absolute favourite colour, and to have an all~pink tea cup is happiness indeed!  And I also love the shape of this cup...I could even enjoy my coffee in it!

I prefer coffee to tea, but I do enjoy fruit teas on the odd occasion, as well as English tea if I am having a yummy sweet treat...
 Leah sweetly sent a bag of coffee which I can't wait to try...hmmm...


...As well as a beautiful new journal...how did she know I was needing a new one?
My current journal is quite full and I haven't written in a while.
I thought a new one would be just the thing to get me writing again!  And see how pretty this one is...


I also received a darling chicken pin cushion which I think is too cute for words!  I will enjoy using this, Leah...{{smiles}}

 

And a mini diary....perfect for keeping in my handbag!  Oh, and some beautiful lavender scented tea candles too...{{happy sigh}}

 
Thank you dear Leah...you certainly blessed me with your lovely  package!

Pretty in pink...that is you, my friend :) Your pink tea cup is exquisite and I have never seeon one quite like it. And the bag of coffee is even pink! I am sure it will be extra delicious because of that {{smiles}} The goodies that Leah sent you are wonderful, dear Kelly-Anne, and I know you will enjoy them.

I am so thankful for you and your excitement about the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange. Your joy is contagious and I absolutely love having you along for the adventures. Bless you, my friend.

Oh what a precious gift to receive, an all pink tea cup! I have never seen one quite like it either! I know you will enjoy many many special moments of hot tea and writing in your new journal, and the sweet little chick pin cushion is just perfect for your sewing adventures! I cannot wait to receive the special Ellies in the mail... what excitement it will be for my nieces to have such a special handmade gift made by your sweet hands! Have a blessed day dear Kelly-Anne!

What lovely treasures from Leah. What fun you did the international swaps, too. That makes it extra unique for sure!

I love your pink teacup - perfect for October's breast cancer awareness month, too, celebrating all those affected - and we all are for sure.

This was my first time swapping, and it was so much fun! But the best part for me was the treasure of new friendships. That is priceless, isn't it? ♥

JES said...

This looks like so much fun! Thank you for sharing your goodies with us :)

What wonderful gifts you received from Leah, sweet friend! They are all perfect for you and I know you will treasure each and every one of them. Isn't this the best exchange, all brought together by our lovely, kind, thoughtful hostess, Stephanie? We are all blessed by this teacup exchange, with wonderful friendships that are formed.
I also read your previous post on your dear sister, Sofia's, birthday! What a fun day and such beautiful sisters you have, Kelly-Anne!

That cup is so cute, Kelly Anne! The pincushion is cute. I'm sure you'll enjoy the tea and the candles. Perfect for fall and winter time. :)
I'm so glad you were able to participate, dear friend.
May God richly bless you.

Much love in Christ,

Hello sweet girl. How perfect is your little set of goodies. Looks like things you will certainly enjoy. Have a perfectly lovely week! Blessings, Heather

Kim said...

No wonder you are happily sighing. Your cup and saucer is so pretty. I can see you in my mind's eye happily sipping coffee from your cup, whilst you pen beautiful thoughts in your lovely new journal.

Linda Walker said...

Kelly-Anne,
What a delightful package you received! I love that pink mug! It really is great for coffee too! Your other little surprises are nice as well. I was wondering if yours would arrive by the time we were to link up. Guess mail to your part of the world does not take as long as I thought! Enjoy all your new goodies!

Debbie Harris said...

Dearest Kelly-Anne~ oh that pretty pink tea cup would fit perfectly on my hutch as I too love pink.
You are so right, that cup will work wonderfully for coffee or tea. I was given a cup similar in size and I usually use it for coffee when I have coffee, which isn't often as it's a no no for me. :(

What a pretty journal to reflect your thoughts in.

Bless you~ Debbie

Mimi said...
