The Lovely Teacup Exchange Reveal




If you have not met Stephanie, over at The Enchanting Rose, then you need to stop by her blog and meet her.  And, I promise, once you go, you will return.  Stephanie has hosted a teacup and mug exchange in the spring and fall for the past several years.  I have never participated until this spring and what a fun exchange.

Stephanie pairs us up with two other bloggers.  One we send to and one we receive from, thus we make two new friends in the process. 

My package came from Kitty at Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.


I was plum excited when I received my package and had such fun opening the box and all the little happies inside.  She had wrapped each individual item in tissue and tied with tulle.  That just added to the fun of opening the package.  Beside the tea/coffee cup, there was a box of flavored coffee, lovely cocktail napkins, a shortbread biscuit and a chocolate bunny.


And, there was this lovely monogrammed kitchen towel that found the perfect spot in my kitchen.  And, Kitty made this herself.  What talent!


And, here is my lovely cup and saucer.  It has butterflies on it and is just perfectly gorgeous.  It's an ivory China with gold edging.  It's something I would have definitely picked out for myself.  Another big thank you to Debbie and I'm already looking forward to the exchange in the fall.

I sent my cup and saucer to Debbie at My Favorite Things and she seemed mighty pleased with my choices for her as well.  You can click on the link to her blog and go over and see her box of goodies from me if you wish.

Thanks Stephanie for all your hard work to make this most fun exchange happen.

We are certainly blessed with new friendships from this wonderful exchange that our sweet friend, Stephanie, so graciously organizes and hosts for us.

  3. Lea,
    I love the butterfly tea cup from Kitty! What a nice gift the personalized towel is. Kitty is mighty talented. I have a mug rug that she embroidered and every time I use it I think of her. I also received a tea cup package from her a few swaps back. Enjoy your goodies! I too am looking forward to the next swap!!

  9. Hi Lea, what goodness and beauty sweet Kitty gifted to you in our exchange. I love the darling pattern on the cup. So special!! The monogrammed tea towel she made you is gorgeous and looks so nice in your kitchen. I know how special they are as Kitty made me one back a couple years ago for fall and I love it. She is a dear and good friend. So glad you will get to know her too. Your gifts are delightful from Kitty. Love the beautiful photos of you displaying your new beauty. Such a pretty lady you are!!
    Enjoy the post reveals and have a great rest of the week. xo

  12. Kitty is a good friend and I received my parcel of love from her for last spring's exchange. She chose a gorgeous teacup for you and with her talent for sewing made an adorable towel for the front of your stove.
    I love how you displayed your teacup and goodies, gave it a special touch!
