12th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal

One of the sweetest, most beautiful bloggers I know is Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose.  Stephanie hosts this Tea Cup Exchange.  Because of her sacrificial efforts, hundreds and hundreds of us from around the world are able to connect, share gifts with one another and make this world just a tiny bit 'smaller'.  This is the fifth exchange I've participated in.  If you're interested, you can find more information about the exchange HERE.
I was excited to be paired up with Cathy at My 1929 Charmer. Cathy and I not only share a love for all things vintage and retro, but we don't live all that far from each other so hopefully we'll be able to meet up one day soon.
As you can see, my cup and saucer from Cathy is STUNNING!  Cathy was so sweet and put a lot of effort into my gifts, focusing on some of my favorite colors (turquoise and red) with the things she included.  It all came in a lovely floral box too!
Just look at this gorgeous, vintage plate!!  It is SO SO beautiful and is sitting on my kitchen table.
I love stamping and making cards so I'm super excited to have this alphabet stamp set!
This little bag had adorable red buttons of different shapes and sizes that I know I'll be using in sewing and craft projects.
I just LOVE baker's twine and of course, Cathy was thoughtful in choosing RED!
And of course, tea and sweets are always fun to get!  This lovely tea and shortbread have already been used on multiple occasions -- I DID share the shortbread with my daughter and husband (just a LITTLE haha!)
Cute little (RED of course!) post it notes rounded out this lovely package from Cathy.  Be sure to stop over to Stephanie's blog on May 17 for the Reveal Party to see what everyone shared and received . . . it's an amazing array of kindness, generosity and friendship!
