Tea Time Tuesday #159 Tea Cup Reveal

Today, the postman brought me a lovely and exciting package! It was from Oliva, my tea cup exchange partner for Stephanie's special exchange. Oliva has had a difficult time lately, so she had written to me that my package would be a bit late. That's just life and I understand how those things happen.

I opened my box to find it all so pretty...wrapped up in pretty tissue paper. I kept taking little gifts out of the box and soon had a pile of treasures on my table!

So exciting! I felt like it was Christmas.

I carefully opened the cup and saucer first. Isn't it dainty and so pretty? I love the pink flowers. It's from Japan and a bit fragile. I love it.

Sweet and dainty.

Look at this generous group of precious tea goodies!!! I still am in awe.

Don't you just love the pink napkin and teapot napkin ring? I will treasure this and use it and think of Oliva when I do. Very very special.

These must be the prettiest floral gardening gloves ever made! And of course she tucked in some seeds for spring time planting.

What a cute little tea holder.

Wonderful organic Earl Grey tea. I will sample it tomorrow for tea time.

I adore this sweet GRANDMOTHER kitchen towel.

What a total surprise to find a fat quarter pack tucked into my box! I will have to find a quilt pattern to make something special with this gift!

A few yummy goodies too...yum,

How did Oliva know I love little lights? Look how cute these are!

Thoughtful Thank you cards too and a great bookmark with a wonderful quote.

One of the dear things about these exchanges is making new friends. She tucked in a little letter sharing somethings about her so I could get to know her a bit better. What a nice touch that I will have to remember for the next exchange.

So dear Oliva...thank you from the bottom of my heart. This was such a treasure box of goodies. I cherish my goodies. I thank you for getting to know picked the perfect gifts for me.

Thank you so much Stephanie for organizing yet another wonderful exchange.  You can find Stephanie's lovely blog at The Enchanting Rose.
