A few weeks ago I joined my sweet blogger friend Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose for her tea cup exchange. I received a box from Kat White in California but waited until today to open it. I am known for being able to wait on packages, but it was pretty hard knowing a tea cup was living inside the box!!!
I carefully opened the box as you can see.
I opened her beautiful handmade card and found a pack of seeds! I love the card and the colors are just perfect!
And what was hiding in the cute little paper owl??? Candy~Yummy! I was good and only ate one.
And then I found two kinds of green tea and the anticipation was building!
I carefully lifted the teacup box out of the shipping box and took all the bubble wrap off....oh what could be inside?
Be still my heart! A beautiful flower cup and saucer, just so perfect for summer and for me! Thank you so very much Cat! I adore it and will cherish it forever. Sooooo pretty.
I went outside to water as it's been pretty dry here. This is my herb garden on the side of my backyard. This is my view every morning when I have my coffee.
I love this book that a friend gave me years ago and I decided to pick an herb bouquet from my garden.
I was reading my book and found out the meanings for some of my herbs.
Then I brewed a cup of my loose tea as I was wanting some vanilla. It's been too warm for hot tea, but it just sounded good and it was!
Isn't this just such a pretty teacup? I love these exchanges. We are linking up on Stephanie's blog tomorrow, so it will be really fun to see what others have to share. I know I will love them all.
Many thanks again to Stephanie for organizing the exchange and to Kat for my lovely teacup.
