I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in Stephanie's Teacup and Mug Exchange through her incredible blog, The Enchanting Rose. This was my first time participating and I chose to exchange a teacup. Stephanie played matchmaker and each participant was given the address of our match and some basic likes of our "soon to be new friend."
I had the honor of sending a package to Lynn who has an amazing blog, Quaker Hill Farm. Because of this exchange, I discovered her blog which features her beautiful home in Indiana and her talented crafts. Check out her pretty painted pumpkin post! I feel blessed to have made a new friend.
I have been so eager to share about the package I received a couple of weeks ago!
After opening a nicely decorated large box, I discovered that Stephanie herself sent the package! I feel as if I won the jackpot of teacup exchanges as Stephanie certainly spoiled me with many one of a kind items. Come take a look and see...
The star of the exchange was the lovely teacup itself!
It is a Spode Copeland with an ornate floral design.
The side of the handle has a floral design on it as well. I adore teacups with designs on the inner cup.
The scalloped saucer adds so much to the set.
The artistry of the pattern is amazing. I'm overjoyed to welcome my first Spode to my teacup collection.
Of course every teacup needs some tea and I was gifted with many different types of Twinings Teas. Stephanie made this wonderful fabric teabag holder that sits upright.
I love this adorable teacup coaster that Stephanie made. She has an Etsy shop, Rose Petal Blessings, where she sells these gems. I think these coasters will make wonderful gifts. I must purchase some!
Beautiful decorative frame
I will bring this to work as my desk needs some beauty.
Is this completely clever or what?
Sweet birdie too
Stephanie knows my favorite color is orange.
I've already been using this beautiful table runner.
So perfect for the fall!
Just want to share how some of the items were packaged with the cute labels.
Thank you Stephanie for coordinating this amazing teacup and mug exchange! It brought and continues to bring joy to so many! I will cherish all of these items and most importantly your friendship.
