I just finished participating for the second time in the Tea Cup Exchange hosted by Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose. Stephanie is one sweet, very talented gal who graciously organizes and hosts these exchanges! She has hosted nine of these so far (?) and here is information on the next one in September or October. Each participant is paired with another participant to exchange a cup and saucer or mug and whatever delights you want to include.
My AMAZING gifts came from a new blogger friend, Deb who hosts the blog, Garage Sale Gal and is a woman after my own heart. She makes beautiful cards, loves antiques (and has two booths where she sells her wares) and is a vintage lover like me.
My box came FILLED to the brim with surprises! Layer upon layer of boxes and tissue . . .
Not only did I get the beautiful tea cup and saucer pictured above but note cards, notepad, stickers, gift tags . . .
A gorgeous vintage pot holder that TOTALLY goes with my retro kitchen . . . this beautiful tea bag holder and vintage, embroidered hankie (vintage linens are one of my many passions!)
You can specify things like favorite colors, favorite tea, your "style" and Deb really went out of her way to fill my box with things I love! Jasmine is my favorite tea and it came in this lovely tin accompanied by a cute, ceramic bunny. And more vintage-style gift tags . . .
Look at this exquisite hand made card!
I felt like it was Christmas morning . . . the more I dug in the box . . . the more I found including chocolates, a book mark, pretty tulip tissues . . .
Be sure to stop over to visit both of these blogs and get lost in all of the ideas, recipes, crafts and more and don't miss out . . . get in on the next exchange!
