Spring Tea Cup Exchange!

Good sunny morning from Oregon! It is just the most beautiful day here in the Pacific Northwest.
Today I am revealing my tea cup exchange goodies. My friend Stephanie at THE ENCHANTING ROSE is so kind to set up these exchanges a couple time a year. Please go visit her beautiful blog and you can see all the lovely goodies that were exchanged. She said this is her 6th exchange....I think I have participated in them all and I have met some lovely ladies.

My package came from a very talented quilter...Tilda at Huckleberry Stitches. If you are into quilting, you need to see what this lovely lady is doing. I am in awe of her small quilts.

So Tilda (don't you love her name?) sent me this teacup from her favorite antique shop. I love it and it's so different. It has daylilies on it. I have daylilies in my front yard and have never seen a teacup decorated with them. Notice the embossed edging around the edges of the cup and saucer and the little daylilies on the inside of the cup. I just have this thing for something decorating the inside. What a lovely choice Tilda.

She sent a nice little assortment of Bigelow teas to sample and enjoy. Yummy.

How did she know I am a specialty soap nut? I have always loved soaps since I was a little girl. I have never had this one! I just have to save them for a bit before I can open the lovely packages. I know, silly me.

She also included this wooden tea scoop. What a neat addition and something I don't own.

So a big thank you Tilda from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate your thoughtful choices and careful packing. I look forward to following your blog and watching your quilts come to life. You blessed me this spring with your wonderful gift!

And to you Miss Stephanie, one of the sweetest people I know, another BIG THANK YOU for setting this up and for the great job you always do. I love ya lots and treasure our friendship. Time for tea!

I've been asking everyone how to add the I'm not a robot Captcha thing in the comment section.

I only found word verification. I did that.

Can you check to see if it worked on my comment section. Thanks bunches. I don't know how to do it.

Sweet Linda, I just love the tea cup Tilda sent to you! It is very unique and different from the "typical" floral patterns - I think it's a perfect addition to your lovely collection :) Tilda {yes, I love her name too} did a wonderful job!

Yes, I believe you have participated in all 6 exchanges, dear friend :) I greatly appreciate you and your precious friendship. I often think of how we connected {through your giveaway two years ago} and I marvel at how God put us together.

Much love to you!

Hello Dear Linda, Tilda has certainly graced you with a beautiful arrangement of goodies. That tea cup is quite unique, just lovely.
