Teacup Exchange Revealed!

Today's the day! It's time to reveal our lovely teacups for Stephanie's latest teacup and mug exchange. She has hosted several over the years and each on has been a delight. Pop on over to The Enchanting Rose to see how fun this exchange was!

One thing that is very special about these exchanges is that you connect with your exchange partners and really make some new blog or internet friends.

When I got an email from my partner, I thought I recognized the name. I belong to a wonderful tea group...ATAA...Afternoon Tea Across America. Patti is on that group with me! It is a small world sometimes.

Look at this stunning cup she sent me. It is just beautiful. It is very fall, yet the colors are so perfect for my tea room. I love it. Thank you Patti so much.

But wait, there's more! This is how my package was wrapped. I couldn't wait to open it.

Even the card inside matched the tea cup. Everything was packed so carefully.

Just look at my goodies. Patti, thank you so much for all the time and care you put into my box. It is all so lovely and what fun I had unwrapping all the treats.

A sweet little cutwork towel will be loved.

Patti sent a little grouping of recipes and tea time fun information.

This bread was SOOO yummy and perfect with tea. Too bad my hubby was out of town.

She also sent a very nice variety of tea, which is also gone now. I enjoyed each one.

Patti had this darling little spoon attached to the bag of teas. You can't really see how sweet it is in this photo. It has little rhinestones on the handle and actually fits perfectly in a little black sugar bowl I have.

I hope you enjoyed this sharing today. Again...a very BIG THANK YOU to you Patti and to you Stephanie for organizing this exchange. It's a lot of work, but we love it and we love you.

Oh Linda, I have such a big smile on my face right now. When I told Patti she would be sending to you she emailed me back and shared how the two of you are in the tea group which I did not realize. It is indeed a small world. I always pray before I match the names and I love seeing how the Lord connects each lady.

Everything is simply delightful and the tea cup is stunning. Yes, too bad your husband was out of town and didn't get to enjoy the bread {{smiles}} Love you, sweet friend!

Hi Linda! Oh my, your teacup is just exquisite! You received a perfectly wonderful package of goodies! The bread looks like it was sooo delish and thanks for showing the recipe :) I want to thank you again for my beautiful package, Linda. As you can see in my post, it looks like it was meant to go with the tea set I had from my MIL...just absolutely perfect! This has been so much fun! Hugs and blessings to you!

Oh my, what beautiful gifts you received. Your tea cup is delightful and how lovely is the cut work towel....just gorgeous. 'Tis such a shame your husband didn't get a chance to sample the bread. =) It has been a treat to visit your lovely blog.
