Spring 2018 Tea Cup Exchange Reveal!


I know I'm a bit late at sharing my reveal ~ please forgive me!  It seems that life has gotten the best of me lately.  I'll save all of the details for another post.  On top of it all I had gotten a new, upgraded everything, computer earlier this year and wasn't familiar with how to upload and download, etc.  I forgot about that until just the other day as I sat down to post this!  No wonder I stopped posting in February!  Technology!  

In the midst of all of my goings on I came home one day to find this beautiful package on my doorstep!  I was like a little girl at Christmas time and couldn't get the box opened fast enough!  



I did, however, pause to take a picture so all could see how carefully and beautifully wrapped everything in the abundant package was!  But let me stop right here and say a HEARTFELT Thank You Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose  for taking the time to organize such a wonderful international event!  


I received my package from Michele at The Nest at Finch Rest and she took such care to wrap everything, it was wonderful to open such a package.  


And just look at all of the beautiful gifts she sent me!  My, my, my, I feel so spoiled.  Michele must have read through my blog to know that I love roses, pinks, and vintage linens! 


I just adore this beautiful pink tea cup - which came from her personal collection.   I love the gilding on it, it is just striking with the pink!


And this oh so gorgeous snack plate.  What a beauty!  

This cute little teapot tack pin I've already worn on my jacket lapel and the teapot charm will be a fun addition to my bracelet.   The pewter shoe though!  How adorable is that?  It will, for the most part, be perched on the shelf in my office, but I couldn't help but use it not too long ago as a game piece when playing monopoly with my Grands!  LOL!  Why not?  




Michele also gave me a book to read "Tea Shop Folly,"  beautiful napkins, and notecards.  


There was also a tin of Sweet Rose tea, a candle, a beautiful bar of soap, and her handmade cards with a sweet note to me, whew!   See why I felt so spoiled?


I just had to show you this embroidered linen table runner close up - isn't it just charming!


I recently hosted a tea party for one of my 5 (soon to be 6) granddaughters and we used the napkins that Michele sent!  They matched perfectly with the butterfly plates we had!



The recipient of my package was Kitty at  Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.   I had such fun putting this together for her and then she turned around and sent me a thank you gift of her handmade Lavender Soap!  It smells so good, I've only been using it sparingly so it will last longer!  Thank you Kitty!  You are too sweet!

  3. Lucky you to get paired up with such sweet ladies. I sent Michele a teacup a few years ago and have enjoyed getting to know her better. I'm loving the tea-themed goodies that Michele sent you, especially the pretty teacup. Purple is my favourite colour so I'm also a huge fan of the beautiful teacup that you sent Kitty.

  4. Good morning, lovely lady! I hope you are well on this beautiful Friday. Do you have any special plans for the long weekend?

    It was such a joy to see your goodies from Michele. Thank you, my friend, for sharing with us. The tea cup is quite stunning and oh, what a pretty little plate. I adored the items you sent to Kitty and loved the farmhouse theme. Too cute!

    Thank you for joining the fun, dear one. Hopefully soon we can get together for tea {{smiles}} Hugs to you!
